Boron plays a role in the production and balancing of testosterone and estrogen in the body.

Avocadoes are loaded with Vitamin E, which is necessary for the production of hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These hormones all play important roles in thing like vaginal lubrication, erections, and clitoral stimulation. Pass the avocadoes please!

Bonus: For those who don't like avocadoes, asparagus is another great source of Vitamin E.

Chili peppers pack a punch, both in the bedroom and out! Not only do they set your tongue on fire, but they can bring the heat back to your sex life. They contain capsaicin, a compound that increases the sensitivity of your nerve endings and boosts circulation. The more blood you have flowing to "the gentleman", the better!
