One Mom's quest to improve her mojo led her straight to the kitchen.
Self magazine explores that burning question: What foods will help you have mind-blowing sex? Writer Valerie Frankel, a Mom of two, tests out a "sex diet" and achieves amazing results. She incorporated almonds, walnuts, salmon, cod, halibut, tomatoes, red peppers, garlic, spinach, broccoli, beets, berries, red grapes, orange juice and dark chocolate into her diet. (But not all at once!) Then, she took several vitamin supplements: a good multivitamin, plus 1,000 milligrams of calcium, 320 mg of magnesium and 8 mg of zinc. Valerie also took fish oil supplements, but says those shouldn't be taken without consulting a doctor.
For this experiment, Valerie agreed to quit smoking and stop drinking alcohol or caffeine--something the self-proclaimed coffee junkie was not exactly thrilled about at first. She "worked out" down there using the GyneFlex, a 3-inch-long, 2-inch-wide plastic V she said "looks like a ThighMaster for your vagina." She used it for 15 minutes two times a week.
After three weeks or so, Valerie writes that her "sex life went from a 3 to a 9, seemingly overnight. I can only describe it as 'louder,' set at a higher volume by every measure. I found myself thinking about sex constantly. I couldn't get anything done." Now, two months since the surge, the sex with her husband is still amazing. "We're back to the beginning--the jolt of instant arousal and persistent hum of desire--but we also have the trust of six years together to lift us up to new sexual heights," Valerie concludes. "And the view from above is breathtaking."
Mom•Logic contacted Valerie for her unique advice for Moms. "I would totally recommend the Sex Diet to Moms," she says. "Since parenting distracts women from their libidinous impulses--often to the point of non-existence--they need help reclaiming their sexual selves. Fish oil supplements and the magnesium/zinc/calcium pills will do the trick. Moms do so much for everyone else. Boosting our sexual response and satisfaction is the least we can do for ourselves."
Wow! We can't wait to try the sex diet and check it out for ourselves. Thanks for the tip, Valerie!
