Pumpkin Pie Can Help Your Sex Life!

Believe it or not, research from the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center shows that the smell of pumpkin pie arouses men.  In a study of 40 odors, the smell of pumpkin pie combined with lavender increased blood flow to the penis by an average of 40 percent.

In addition, consuming pumpkin seeds, which are high in zinc, may increase testosterone production and be helpful with erections.  The study was performed on men ranging from 18 to 64.

Other smells that give a strong response in men are vanilla and strawberry.  Vanilla creates a strong reaction in older men and a strong response to strawberry is given by men who rate their sex life as most satisfying.

In another study, women responded the best to the smells of Good & Plenty candy combined with cucumbers.

So, what are you waiting for, start experimenting and let me know if pumpkin pie can help your sex life!  Leave me a comment with the results!

  1. Great post Adam!
    My dear partner Shelton (one dedicated pumpkin pie lover) said “I’ve been telling you this for ages” He also is sure that pecan pie does the same! He is wondering whether I am willing to experiment by making them for him regularly!! :O).
    And seriously it would be interesting to see whether the same smells arouse men from different cultures.
    I find it so wonderful how smells have the power to be evocative and how many unconscious associations we make to different smells. Our sense of smell is an amazing gift.
    Many thanks for the reminder of another thing to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, Susie?

    • Susie,
      I’ll be sure to give pecan pie a try before the end of the holiday season!
      Thanks so much for sharing,

  2. WELL then – I will keep a pumpkin pie in the oven at all tims – or better yet – there must be a pumpkin pie candle …will that be the same?

    Good & Plenty huh – that’s my favorite candy and now I can understand why….:)

    Thanks for your insight and sex life tips,

    Living in the possibilities,

  3. Watch out for those pumpkin pie candles, man. They mess with your head, man! They’re oddly enchanting.
