The goji berry is the latest celeb food craze. Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna are all fans.
But as well as being uber-healthy, they are libido lifters. They've been dubbed "natural Viagra", making them the most sexy superfood EVER!
So forget about pills and potions and check out the top 10 natural foods to get you in the mood.
1. Goji berries
These fab fruits are quite pricey at £3.99 for 125g, but they're the latest big thing if you want your evening to go with a bang. The small red berries taste like the love child of a cherry and a cranberry and are said to boost energy levels and boost your sex drive. They used to be exclusively stocked in the fridges of the rich and famous, but you can now get some at your local Tesco. The wonderberries are also known as cellulite assassinators because they're packed with skin-boosting anti-oxidants.
2. Acai berries
This trendy superfood comes from Brazil. Rio de Janeiro's surfer boys and beach babes share with the Beckhams a passion for the purple berry, which is meant to boost your libido. It's drunk as a juice or in a smoothie. The palms on which the acai (pronounced "ah-sigh-ee") berry grows in the Amazon are known by the locals as the tree of life.
Traditionally considered an aphrodisiac, this slippery seafood is rich in testosterone-boosting zinc. It's also got lots of selenium, which helps to ensure a healthy sex drive, good fertility and may assist stamina by enabling the body to utilise oxygen.
A lack of histamines has been linked with men and women being unable to achieve orgasm. Asparagus has a rich supply - so tuck into this sexy green veg to get to the height of passion. It's also loaded with folate, a B-vitamin essential for sexual arousal.
Ginseng boosts sexual hormones. Korean ginseng is believed to combat impotence and enhance sexual appetite while Siberian ginseng is good for raising a man's sperm count.
Saffron has long been considered a sexually-stimulating substance with particular benefits for the male libido and female fertility. So it's an ideal excuse to spice up your night with a curry!
This sweet treat contains the stimulant phenylethylamine, which is referred to as a "love drug" because it quickens the pulse and tricks the brain into thinking it's falling in love. It's also believed to make you feel super horny.
These are a great love food because they're rich in boron, which turns calcium into an aphrodisiac. Dip them in chocolate and feed them to the object of your affections for a total taste turn-on.
The word comes from the Aztec ahuacatl, which literally means "testicle tree". They're rich in vitamin E, which is essential for a sizzling sex drive and increased fertility.
Popeye's favourite, this leafy green veg is a great source of vitamin B6 and folic acid. These are essential for the production of sex hormones. Spinach is also packed with passion-boosting zinc.
