Foods for lovers and win a luxury massage

If you are hoping to inspire luck in love on Valentines Day, here are 10 aphrodisiac foods that might just do the trick.

The perfect menu for Valentines Day starts with a glass of champagne and and appetiser of guacamole. Follow with a dozen oysters and an asparagus quiche topped with basil.

Share a banana and finish with chocolate covered almonds and a few figs for good measure.

Here's what to eat and drink for Valentines Day.

1. Great champagne

Every one and everything looks better through the bottom of a champagne glass.

2. Chocolate 

Makes us happy because it contains theobromine, a stimulating alkaloid similar to caffeine.

3. Oysters 

Mighty high in zinc which raises libido. Casanova ate 50 raw oysters every day.

4. Almonds 

Regarded as fertility symbols throughout history.

5. Avocado 

The Aztec's name for the avocado tree was the 'testicle tree', and Spanish Catholic priests at one time prohibited their consumption.

6. Asparagus

Said to boost histamine production which will get you there faster, if you know what I mean.

7. Bananas 

Great for blokes evidently, except a banana left on a doorstep indicates that a marriage is about to take place.

8. Basil 

Has a warming effect and is a love-token in some parts of Italy.

9. Eggs 

An ancient fertility symbol that enhances libido when eaten raw.

10. Figs 

For their sexy appearance and texture.

Valentines Day is February 14, in case you were wondering.
