Chocolate V.S. Your Sex Life ***

From the time the first coca beans were harvested by the Mayans,
there has been the belief that chocolate has a euphoric
impact on the body's senses.
The conquistadores saw the Emperor Montezuma of the Aztecs consuming a large quantity of cocoa in the form of a beverage called chocolatl before entering his harem.
The invading Spaniards spread the Emperor's belief
that cocoa was an aphrodisiac and brought it to Europe.
This belief was also shared by one of history's most famous lovers, Giacomo Casanova.
Since then, the use of chocolate as part of the mating ritual has been firmly established.
More recently it has been shown that not only does chocolate increase the sexual appetite but also produces a sense of elation similar to an orgasm.
Chocolate contains phenylethylamine,
a naturally occurring amino-acid which some consider to have
aphrodisiacal effects and is even said to be able to "cure" hangovers.
Phenylethylamine is a substance which is released naturally
in the human body when you're in love.
Other stimulants present in chocolate are dopamine and serotonin,
which alleviate pain and encourage a good mood.
Serotonin produces feelings of pleasure in a similar way to sunlight.
Chocolate also contains theobromine, a chemical stimulant frequently confused with caffeine, but has very different effects on the human body.
It is a mild, lasting stimulant with a mood improving effect.
Its presence is one of the causes for chocolate's mood-elevating effects.
Despite the fact that the relationship between sex and chocolate
can't be proven with 100% certainty,
the scientific evidence combined with behavioral studies provides a compelling argument for cocoa's impact on our sexual drive -
it is convincing enough for chocolate to have become a part of your daily diet!
