Spicy foods are notorious for setting your mouth on fire, but what impact do they have on your desire level? Turns out, a lot. While you can certainly shake a few dashes of cayenne pepper on your meal, the real aphrodisiacs in the spicy food world are chili peppers. The spicy treat is known to stimulate your endorphins (the feel good chemicals in your brain), speed up your heart rate, and make you sweat. So, basically, everything that happens when you’re having a good time with your partner. Chili peppers are a definite aphrodisiac, but make sure that you’re not handling them with bare hands.
