Three Seafood Aphrodisiacs For Date Night

Seafood, particularly shellfish, has been associated with love and romance for hundreds of years. According to research, some seafood can even have aphrodisiac effects that will surely make your next date night memorable. Continue reading to learn why you should include seafood in your next date night with your significant other. 

What Exactly Is An Aphrodisiac?

Aphrodisiacs are foods that can enhance libido and sexual desire. Rooted in Greek mythology, the term ‘aphrodisiac’ originated from the name of the goddess Aphrodite, who was the goddess of love and beauty. People often consume food and drinks that are considered aphrodisiacs to help improve their libido.


Oysters are known for their nutritional value and potential benefits for sexual health. They are rich in zinc, which is linked to increased testosterone levels and healthy dopamine levels. Oysters also contain heart-healthy omega-3 fats, which can help improve blood flow and prevent issues such as erectile dysfunction. 


Scallops are shellfish that often get overlooked compared to oysters, but they deserve attention equally. They are rich in vitamin B12, selenium, magnesium, and potassium source. These nutrients are linked to enhancing one’s libido and desire, making scallops a healthy and delicious addition to your diet on date night.


Did you know that certain foods have the potential to increase libido in both men and women? One such food is mussels. Studies have shown that low levels of zinc can contribute to decreased libido and lower testosterone levels. However, mussels are a rich source of zinc, which stimulates the release of testosterone in both men and women, providing them with the required energy boost for their next date night.
