For the Romantically Inclined...

Some commonly known aphrodisiacs are: chocolate (Shama says go for dark chocolate for the healthier option), oysters, avocados, fennel, figs, garlic, ginger, raspberries, strawberries, bananas and red wine.

"There's no scientific evidence on whether these really increase someone's sex drive, but it has to do with appearance and texture -- that might stimulate romantic sides," Shama says. "A banana's phallic shape can be a bit more exciting. Figs appear like women's genitilia."

Forget everything else on the list...go with the red wine. After enough red wine...the other stuff is just in the way.

Incidentally, I held a Fig Newton up to my girlfriend, and she doesn't look anything like it.
