Can Chocolate Really Increase Your Sex Drive?

wrecklesswords wrecklesswords
I heard this theory at a party this afternoon and have been very curious to see if it's got any kind of truth to it.

Can chocolate increase your sex drive and make you better at sex?

Some quick research shows that chocolate contains theobromine which is supposedly the reason why chocolate is not only addictive, but increases sex drive.

I can't find any solid studies on this, but what do you all think? Have you noticed that you feel randier after having chocolate?

No. BUT, it does mimic the same hormone that makes you feel like you're in love so it CAN put you in a disposition that is more easily plied than if you hadn't had said chocolate.

I read something like that after I posted this! No wonder people consider it an aphrodisiac! It makes you feel like you're in love, therefore you could be bolder with your moves and everything. Makes total sense.

I didn't believe it either, but since someone said it with such confidence, I decided to look it up.

So, basically, our conclusion is that it can't increase your libido, but it makes you think it has increased!

I feel like I'd need a LOT of chocolate for it to make any difference.

Right! It's a placebo, if you will.

What I am about to say however IS a fact and has been clinically proven and I wish I could find the info on it to share, but did you know...

That the best way to break an addiction to chocolate is to overeat it in one sitting. You're desire for the sweet stuff will dramatically decline. I accidentally did this to myself on Valentine's Day one year and ended up finding the research later that week. I basically ate an entire bag of Dove chocolate squares and ever since then my cravings for chocolate have been non-existant.

Huh! Interesting! No wonder my love for chocolate has declined quite a bit!

I used to eat entire bags of that Dove chocolate or the Hershey's bliss but now sometimes I can barely take more than 2 or 3 pieces at a time.
