Chocolate and sex: Two of the sweetest things on Earth.
Even though scientists recently found that chocolate isn’t addictive, our melt-in-your-mouth friend scored big points in another study.
British scientists observed couples while they ate squares of dark chocolate and while they kissed passionately. Guess what fellas: We lost!
Women’s heart rates rose 20 percent more and their bodies released 4 times the endorphins when they ate the cacao-rich chocolate.
It’s not a total loss though. At least you know those Valentine chocolates are well worth the money.
If you really want to get technical, the women’s version of “chocolate Viagra” used in the study was 65 percent cacao dark chocolate.
Haven’t quite made it to the “chocolate sex” stage yet? Here are some great first date ideas.
