Sexy food is all about setting the mood in the bedroom

Food To Eat In Bed

Sexy food is all about setting the mood, about letting down your guard and getting silly. Because sex is more fun when you let loose and the right kind of food can help get you there.

We all know that oysters and asparagus are supposed to be aphrodisiacs, but just being randy isn't necessarily sexy in itself. Sexy foods are evocative and stimulate more than just the libido, they involve smell and taste and sensuality. Food can make us silly or dull. For many queer folk it's a crucial part of foreplay.

After asking around a bit, we compiled a list of 10 foods people find sexy for various reasons. Here they are:
Mangoes: Mango is a very sensual, juicy fruit. Open one up and let the juices run on your fingers. It also tastes good and makes you smell sweet. Since smell is such a major component of what turns me on, anything with garlic or onions is automatically not sexy.

Strawberries: This has all the sensuality of a mango without the messier qualities. It's very easy to feed to one another and to share and also smells divine.

Almonds: Almonds are a traditional symbol of fertility and the smell is intoxicating. They're also easy to feed to one another.

Smarties/Jelly Tots/Marshmallows: This one may seem silly, but hear us out. When we eat these sweets, we're automatically transported back in time to the age of about 12 when something as simple as a sweet could make one giggle and laugh. Carefree sex is hot. Also: They make kisses taste really good.

Chocolate pudding: Soft, sensual, delicious, and simple. Chocolate pudding evokes carefree childhood desires and can also be used on each other's bodies. We dare you to lick chocolate pudding off your man's fingers and not get a twinge of desire.

Avocado: The avocado is just a sexy-looking fruit (yes, it's fruit, not a vegetable). It evokes a feminine voluptuousness and is creamy and soft.

Basil: A very aromatic food that cleanses the palate and awakens the senses.

Figs: This has the same appeal as the avocado, with the added appeal of being highly shareable and delicious.

Brie/crackers: This is an easy finger food that can be shared and licked off each other's fingers.

Cherries/Olives/Watermelon: We dare you to eat a cherry, a slice of seed-filled watermelon, or a bunch of pitted olives without laughing. Remember to remove the pips before hand though because spitting pips brings us down a notch and reminds us of other mundane activities.

So, what is your favourite (apart from your partner) in bed? Let us know.
