Sometimes when you’re just “not in the mood” – it has more to do with the psychology behind it; it has to do with poor diet, lack of exercise, and terrible sleep habits. These all are vital in maintaining hormonal balance and a normal libido. Here are some super foods that will spruce up your sex life.
Basically enrolled in foreplay in most films and they make it look so much better than what actually happens in real life. I mean, have you ever had a guy feed you a strawberry?

Avocados are very popular amongst Latin-American cultures, which happen to be some of the most sensual and erotic cultures on our planet so it should come as no surprise that avocados make the list.
