An Aphrodisiac Tour of the World

Enter the realm of the senses in these vacation spots known for their luxury, beauty, and stimulating cuisine. Everything here is a complete turn-on.


Ask any man what he enjoys most in life, and you can guarantee that food and sex will feature somewhere in his top five, if not the top three. I mean, what’s not to love, right? Sex and food are both life-affirming on their own, but our resident luxury travel experts at Insight Guides take that up a gear, putting together a list of the best aphrodisiacs around the world, and the best place to eat or drink them. This way, you can plan this year’s vacation around (at least) two things you love.


[post_ads]It may surprise you to learn that bananas are an aphrodisiac: Aside from their suggestive silhouette, they’re packed with potassium, vitamin B and bromelain, which are all known to increase the male sexual libido. Ecuador’s tropical climate makes it the perfect place to grow bananas, and they produce more than 8 million tons a year, making them the fifth largest producer on earth.


Aside from chocolate, oysters are probably the most well-known fuel for the love machine. Like champagne, oysters are synonymous with the luxury lifestyle, and they boast an extraordinary amount of zinc, which stimulates the production of sexual hormones in both sexes. Although oysters can be found in waters around the world, Spain has some of the most acclaimed varieties.


A bit of an obvious one: Everyone knows that chocolate gets you in the mood, and Belgium’s chocolate is world famous. The country’s colonial roots in Congo granted them access to cocoa beans long before other Western and European countries, giving them a head start in the race to refine their chocolate recipe. Today, it’s a cornerstone of Belgian culinary culture—and the way to any woman’s heart.



Many countries produce sparkling wine: the Italians have their Prosecco, the Spanish have their Cava, but neither can quite compete with French Champagne. Produced from grapes in the Champagne region of France, the drink has long been associated with the luxury lifestyle, and comes with added bonus of being an aphrodisiac.


Save some Champagne for this next leg of the trip. What goes hand-in-hand with the sparkling wine? Strawberries. With its arid climate, Turkey has established itself as one of the largest growers of quality strawberries in the world.



You could visit any number of Asian countries that are synonymous with spicy food, but Thailand’s cuisine is perhaps the most famous in all of Southeast Asia, and chilis are an integral part of it. Think about it: Eating a dish with chilis in it makes you sweat; makes your heart beat faster, and increases blood flow…
