8 Foods for Her Sex Drive Better than Female Viagra

Is one bout of hot sex a month worth risking your health for? That’s the question women face with the FDA approval of Addyi, the new drug that boosts female libido.

In studies, women who took the drug reported just one “extra sexually satisfying event” per month, and the FDA recommends you stop taking the “female Viagra” after eight weeks if you see no improvement. The drug works on the brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite, but the downside can be steep: drowsiness, nausea and dizziness, and women who take it will be advised to refrain from alcohol and be wary of extremely low blood pressure and drug interactions.

While women weigh the pros and cons, the editors of Eat This, Not That! have uncovered new research that shows certain foods (all of them totally delicious) can have much the same effect — boosting mood, improving hormonal balance and increasing blood flow — without the dizzying side effects. The next time you set aside an evening to channel Marvin Gaye, work some of these foods into your day.
