Spicy foods

Often one can hear about a pregnant lady eating lots of spicy foods. This is mainly because her female hormones are pumped at great levels during pregnancy that kindle her sexual desires wildly. This makes her crave for spicy foods. The logic can also be applied vice versa. If women have to increase or maintain a healthy sexual desire, they have to eat spicy foods. Chillies increase testosterone levels.

Above all, it is essential to have a peaceful day. If the body is stressed it will be too tired to demand an orgasm as majority of the energy would be supplied to other muscles like hands, legs. A large chunk would be consumed by the brain alone. Therefore along with adding the above healthy food to every day diet, one has to switch off her brain completely. Even a party laughter and dancing might reduce the pleasures.
