Whether work, career, business, art, technology or passion to conquer, create and experiment. Passion is arguably what keeps us growing and going against all odds.

 Nigerian men love their booze and it’s no surprise brandy takes the number one spot. Hennessy, Martell, Remi Martin, Chivas Regal, you name it. The smooth blends tend to give a relaxing feeling. The initial buzz and warm feeling you get when you take a sip are caused by the receptors of the male brain being stimulated by the level of alcohol in brandy.  Scientists say it is at the light level of alcohol intake that we are most likely to perform our best. Brandy can turn from being good for your sex drive to being bad very quickly if you have too much. 

Red wine

 It is a scientific fact—red wine increases levels of testosterone. Just two glasses of red wine will put you in the mood. When drinking red wine, the compounds inside the wine called quercetin stops the enzyme that gets rid of testosterone. With quercetin, the body gets rid of the enzyme through the urine, this eventually raises the levels of testosterone in the blood. Watch out though, a few too many glasses can reverse the effect by reducing testosterone. 

Tiger nut

 Talk about a knockout package for cheap. This is said to be an ancient secret to boost libido, treat low sperm count and treat erectile distinction. If eaten every day for one week, you will most likely have long-lasting erections and a strong sexual urge. 


 Banana’s power cannot be understated. Other than its suggestive shape, it’s loaded with potassium. Potassium, potassium, potassium! The amount of potassium in a banana delivers muscle strength thereby intensifying orgasms. 


 Strange but true, this Hulk Hogan of fruits is said to be the natural viagra. It contains citrulline, which relaxes the blood vessels the same way Viagra does. It also has high levels of lycopene which is good for the heart and good for prostate health. 

Ata rodo

 Known as Exotic pepper, is probably one of the subconscious reasons why Nigerian men love fresh stew. It triggers feel-good chemicals called endorphins. Ata rodo is loaded with capsaicin which is an aphrodisiac and surprisingly a pain reliever. Who would have thought? The heat from this spice gets your heart pumping by increasing blood flow and stimulating nerve endings which mimics the essence of arousal.

Seafood; Oysters and Calamari

An upscale item on the menu, they are very strong aphrodisiacs. These seafood are high in zinc which is known to quickly increase sex drive and fertility. Zinc also boosts semen production and regulates sexual hormones. 


Worth a try, don’t you think?
