    Call it Mother Nature's own version of Viagra. Blueberries can help relax blood vessels and increase blood flow all over, including to your man's penis.

    Now this one should really be called a passion fruit. Filled with antioxidants, it protects the lining of the blood vessels, which allows more blood to course through them. The benefit is increased genital sensitivity.

  • Ice Cream

    It's high in calcium and phosphorus, which are great for endurance.

    It's the right mix of sticky and sweet --  and oh so fun to lick off!

    If you are a new couple or it's the first time you plan to do the deed, no doubt you have pre-sex jitters. The B vitamins in eggs can calm your anxiety and nerves.

  • Hot Chiles

    The capsaicin found in peppers increases circulation, which gets the blood pumping and stimulates nerve endings. The result: You feel really, really turned on!

  • Avocados

    Yes, avocados. They help your body release hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, which can cause your clitoris to swell and vaginal lubrication.
