  1. Awesome site, worth my time.
    Thank you for your kind comments.

  2. Hello Ellie! Thank you for your time and wonderful comment. It's much appreciated. I truly enjoyed your great sites, as well. Keep up the good work!
    Take care,

  3. I've read this not once but twice. I presented it for a board review sharing with each today. Like Ellie says well worth the time of discovering. I think this and your article, Sannel, offers a Valentine day setting. Those creative juices are flowing now.

  4. Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment so kindly on my article.

  5. Sannel, I will defer to your expertise on this issue since you clearly know far more about it than I! Who knew so many foods could have such "benefits". Fortunately, many of them are quite delicious and already in my diet. Some of the others I will have to give a try. The problem becomes what to do with the resulting ravenous libido if I have no one to be libidinous for?! :/ Thanks for the fun and educational post!

  6. Now you cannot expect me to just take your word for this. I will start an investigation immediately. Can I get a blueberry, almond, asparagus salad please?

  7. Hmmm. . . yes Rick, that could definitely be a huge problem to solve! I never thought about the damaging consequences. Since we both are in the same boat, I think the best thing for you, is to strictly refrain yourself from sauerkraut and I, on the other hand, should stack up on broccoli. By the way, I did not know, there were such a word as "libidinous" Lol!
    Thanks for bringing a smile to my day, my friend:)

  8. Mike, how's your investigation going so far? have you reached the letter B yet? Just be careful with the garlic, it could really be a killer in the bedroom, lol!

  9. That’s a great list you came up with! Who knew that the fruits and veggies we consume have so many health benefits? I’ve also heard that fenugreek and its seeds boost testosterone production in men which also helps to improve stamina and sexual performance. I read about it in Ageless Male reviews. For now, I plan to include as many of these foods as I can in my everyday meals. Thanks so much!

  10. Hello Rhonda - Welcome to my blog! I knew that fenugreek seeds are often used to increase milk supply in lactating women, I did not know that it also helped men boost their sexual performance. Great news! Thank you for your visit and interesting input.

  11. Hello Sannel!

  13. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your site and detailed information you offer.
    It's nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the
    same unwanted rehashed information. Excellent read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    My webpage:

    You can also consume natural aphrodisiacs such as ginseng and gingko. These aphrodisiacs act as vasodilators and, over a period of time, end up enhancing sexual desire.

  15. It is very important to have a healthy diet and maintain a balanced lifestyle to keep up with sexual stamina.

  16. You should try and shun red meat – stick to white meats and vegetables. In fact, try and pack in a lot of vegetables in your diet because they are full of vitamins and antioxidants that help you enhance your sex drive.

  17. Aside from finding the best foods that can help increase your sexual functionality, it is very important to perform penile exercises for stronger male organ. These are called natural male enhancement exercises given that its can be safely performed without doctor’s prescription.

  19. It only means that eating healthy and proper exercise can help in increasing the libido. And while these foods help condition the physical body, it also helps if the mood for the “moment” was also set. That way, the couple will definitely enjoy the event together.
