Hello Remmy Followers!
Jaxx Steele here to add my gift to Remmy to celebrate his birthday! After I found out what Ryy, Jade and Cassandre were doing, I was at a lost to what that may be, but with a little help and much brain storming here I am!
I have decided to help Remmy’s muse and light his fire so that we may experience many more of his books in the future. I did my homework and found out that some foods actually have a direct impact on your sex life, affecting hormones, brain chemistry and energy and stress levels. Some foods arouse because they are psychologically suggestive while others actually increase blood flow to the genitals.
So, I looked up some of those aphrodisiac foods and found some of my favorite recipes had a lot of those ingredients in them. I listed hem here for Remmy to enjoy, feel free to use them as well. J
Garlic is chockfull of allicin, an ingredient that will increase blood flow and basil not only makes the meals smell and taste better, but it also has a lot of beneficial effects on human body and is also very stimulating. Maybe this explains why Italians are so romantic!

Oysters are high zinc content which helps produce sperm and increases libido. Most people are aware of their reputation for increasing sexual desire thus sealing their fate as being a powerful aphrodisiac. So, I searched for a well known recipe.
· 2 slices bacon
· 24 unopened, fresh, live medium oysters
· 1 1/2 cups cooked spinach
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 cups kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
- Clean oysters and place in a large stockpot. Pour in enough water to cover oysters; bring the water and oysters to a boil. Remove from heat and drain and cool oysters. When cooled break the top shell off of each oyster.
- Using a food processor, chop the bacon, spinach, bread crumbs, green onions, and parsley. Add the salt, hot sauce, olive oil and anise-flavored liqueur and process until finely chopped but not pureed, about 10 seconds.
- Arrange the oysters in their half shells on a pan with kosher salt. Spoon some of the spinach mixture on each oyster. Bake 10 minutes until cooked through, then change the oven's setting to broil and broil until browned on top. Serve hot.
Add a glass of champagne for a romantic meal and enjoy!
I couldn’t let you go without a recipe for something chocolate. As self proclaimed chocoholic, I am fully aware of its benefits. Pure chocolate, the king of natural aphrodisiacs, contains a host of compounds including anandamide, the psyochoactive feel-good chemical, and PEA (phenylethylamine), the "love chemical," which releases dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain and peaks during orgasm. PEA is said to help induce feelings of excitement, attraction and euphoria. This is one of my favorite recipes. Neat, sexy, you can share and it’s libido boosting!
Chocolate Covered Cherries
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 8 ounces semisweet dark chocolate, chopped
- 24 Bing cherries with stems
- Pour the sugar into a shallow dish. Drop two drops of vanilla at a time into the dish in 24 separate places to form lumps of vanilla sugar. Set aside to allow the lumps to harden.
- Pit the cherries carefully from the bottom. I use a small curved dental tool. Make sure the stem stays intact.
- When the lumps of sugar have hardened, insert them into the cherries where the pits were; set aside. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
- Hold cherries by the stem and dip into the chocolate leaving the very top uncovered. Set on waxed paper to dry. Refrigerate overnight to allow the sugar lumps to dissolve.
