There is no overemphasising the role of good sex in a relationship. 


Good sexual performance can make or break a relationship and have an overall effect on your life.

While some foods can kill your libido and affect your sex life, there are many others that can help you put the spark back in your sexual performance.

Apples also contain phloridzin, a common phytoestrogen which aids vaginal lubrication.

Red wine


Red wine contains quercetin, a substance that enhances lubrication in women. It also is rich in polyphenols which decrease instances of erectile dysfunction.


Citrulline, a phytonutrient in watermelon, relaxes the blood vessels and helps to improve blood flow to the sex organs, which may enhance arousal.

Since citrulline is most concentrated near the rind, bite deep into that area of your watermelon.


Red grapes

Red grapes are a good source of boron, a mineral that helps stimulate the production of both oestrogen and testosterone.


Bananas are a great source of potassium, an essential nutrient for muscle contraction Also, bananas naturally contain bromelain, which helps produce testosterone and enhances your sex life.
