Top TEN-10 Aphrodisiacs for Valentines Day 2011-2012

Top TEN-10 Aphrodisiacs for Valentines Day 2011-2012

Oysters, rose petals, chocolate, chile peppers, licorice, star anise—there is no shortage of ingredients reputed over the centuries to stir ardor. So is there any truth to these claims?

1. Watermelon

This "lycopene king" may have a Viagra-like effect on the body. It relaxes blood vessels and improves circulation. It's also extremely low in calories and delicious.

2. Olives

Packed with antioxidants, olives and their oil have been used for centuries for health. The Greeks believed they made men more virile as well. Plus, olives make for a perfect low-carb appetizer.

3. Strawberries

Whether coated in a chocolate shell, dipped in whipped cream or nibbled on their own, strawberries are delicious. Feed them to each other for a healthy, vitamin C-packed dessert.

4. Cherries

Drop a bright Maraschino cherry in a classic Manhattan for a grown-up romantic treat.

5. Artichokes

Steam a few artichokes in white wine. Pull off the leaves and when you get to the center, share the delicious choke with the one you love.

6. Tea

Skip the coffee after dinner and reach for a cup of chai tea. The typical spices in this brew—ginger, cloves and cinnamon—will get the blood flowing but the caffeine effect is less so you'll still be able to drift off to sleep after your meal.

7. Pomegranates

These bright gems enclosed in a thick rose husk are filled with antioxidants and make a sweet-tart addition to salads, dips and desserts.

8. Pizza

Why? You eat it with your hands and just about anywhere is acceptable. And there's something sensual about feeding a slice of pizza to your loved one.

9. Whipped Cream

Decadent yet light as air, this is our Valentine's Day Aphrodisiac. With topping or without it, whipped cream is a sinfully decadent delight!

10. Chocolate

The mysterious powers of chocolate are well loved. Whatever is in the sweet substance that sends us running back for more, it's definitely indispensable to Valentine's Day.
