Besides its phallic shape, bananas are full of enzyme bromelain, which triggers testosterone production. TV personality Dr. Oz also praises the fruit for its high levels of potassium and vitamin B, which boost energy.


As well as dipping them in chocolate and feeding them to your other half for a sweet treat, strawberries are great because they are rich in vitamin C, which helps keep blood flowing to all parts of the body. Adding a dark chocolate layer will also help blood flow, ensuring a night filled with passion!


Finish your frisky fruit salad with a nice helping of cherries, which boast impressive levels of feel-good vitamins A, C and E. Cherries are also brimming with potassium, magnesium, folate, iron and the antioxidant melatonin, known for regulating your heart.

Chili peppers

Chilies can add heat to any dish, and they can also add some heat to bedroom activities too. Chilies stimulate nerve endings, increase circulation and stimulate endorphins, meaning a fiery night is definitely in store after chowing down on the food.


The oily fish is known for being full of omega-3 fatty acids, but did you know that omega-3 is the building block of sex hormones in men and women? Add pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds to your salmon dish for even more of a boost.
