Sexual Fitness for Men: The Hardness Factor (cont.)
Excessive alcohol, excessive fat and just excessive calories probably are very, very destructive. On the other hand, if you enrich your diet with foods of color -- green, orange, red, fruits, vegetables, fiber -- I think you are actually going to enhance the quality of your health and subsequently, the quality of your sex life. So my answer is yes.
I don't think you want to think in terms of "aphrodisiacs" -- foods that somehow enhance your interest in sex. Clearly over the last century people have written about certain foods that have a very phallic appearance, whether they are artichokes or oysters or celery or cucumbers. Those just happen to be healthy foods and some have substances that may be healthy for you but not necessarily aphrodisiac.
If there is one food that may be actually somewhat sexually stimulating it would probably be chocolate, but I would not overdo it.
What I want to be able to say in this book is that men really are relevant in our society and they really do need to understand that when there are issues that affect a man, they can respond. A book of this nature can alter, hopefully, a man's perception of his sexuality and his overall health, and give him the knowledge that he can really make a difference for not only himself but for his partner and his family. I really hope that with some of the simple lifestyle changes that I have introduced in this book, we can start a new era of awareness of men's health.
