You don't have to cook to win your woman over. Simply follow this recipe for seduction and you might just end up having sex for dessert:
Drink: A glass of red wine
Grape skins contain the antioxidant resveratrol, the closest thing we have to an actual aphrodisiac. It increases estrogen production, say Northwestern University researchers, and that heightens sexual appetite and makes lubrication easier for her later in the evening.
Red wines from muscadine grapes have a higher resveratrol content than other reds do, say researchers at Mississippi State University. Too much vino in too little time forces the body to absorb the alcohol quickly, causing drowsiness.
Appetizer: Shrimp cocktail
The zinc-dense shrimp increase sperm levels and make orgasms more powerful, according to a study in Fertility and Sterility. They also contain a stress-reducing amino acid and the feel-good hormone serotonin.
Entrée: Filet mignon au poivre (6 oz)
High-protein foods boost production of dopamine and norepinephrine, hormones that increase alertness and assertiveness.
Eating too much (and this goes for everything on the menu) can trigger your body to release cytokines -- hormones that induce sleep.
Black pepper aids digestion, according to an Indian Journal of Medical Research study -- helpful for any energetic activities after dinner.
Side: Baked sweet potato
It's high in potassium, which helps reduce stress--a great way to curb performance anxiety later that night. Avoid dumping on a lot of salt, because the sodium can inhibit the potato's potassium.
Top the potato with a dollop of sour cream, another source of libido-friendly protein.
Side: Spinach salad
Spinach is a potent source of magnesium, which helps dilate blood vessels, ensuring the smooth blood flow that's crucial for strong erections.
Dessert: Fresh raspberries drizzled with melted dark chocolate
British scientists have discovered that women release four times more endorphins after eating chocolate than they do after making out. The caffeine in chocolate also increases your alertness for what's to come after dessert.
