We all know that there are foods that act as aphrodisiacs and can stimulate sexual desire. However, less well known is the fact that there are also several types of foods that should be avoided before an erotic massage.
Next time you're planning a night of indulgence, you'd better skip the steak fries. Numerous studies have revealed that fried foods kill your libido because of the testosterone-lowering hydrogenated fats found in fried foods. Luckily for men, carbs are still an option. In the long run, baked potatoes, which oddly enough increase dopamine levels, will help you.
Gin and tonic
Quinine, found in most tonics, lowers testosterone levels. Drinking too much of it can prevent you from feeling any pleasure, gin and tonic can reduce libido. Opt for a martini or better yet a glass of red wine as it is a known aphrodisiac. Amines, an organic compound present in wine, have been shown to increase sexual desire, enhance the senses and even aid in weight loss.
It's not as if your meal includes a licorice appetizer, but if you're inclined to enjoy an aperitif, take note: the herb's calming tendencies can cause drowsiness thanks to the active ingredient glycyrrhetinic acid. When consumed in large quantities, licorice can cause hormonal changes in both men and women, including decreased libido and lower testosterone levels.
Soy is literally a powerful male anti-aphrodisiac. The phytoestrogens found in soy tend to compete with male sex hormone and have been linked to sexual dysfunction, fertility problems, male breast growth and hair loss. In fact, Zen monks eat soy to maintain celibacy, and Japanese wives are known to feed unfaithful husbands extra portions of tofu to kill their ability to have sexual desire.
When some people think of erotic massage, they think that it is only about sex and the massage itself is just a by-product. It's just the opposite, erotic massage can awaken feelings in you that you had no idea about and why not experience them with your partner.
Most couples over time, some sooner, some later, reach a point where sex becomes a rote, passionless routine. There are many ways to liven up a sex life, one of them being mutual erotic massage. If you don't dare to do it, visit our salon where you can do it together.
Although tantra is often synonymous with sex and massage, it is really about connection - whether it is with yourself or between you and your partner. In practice, tantra is about enlightenment: transcending the sexual and spiritual planes by engaging in deeply meditative, spontaneous and intimate sex.
