food and mood
A few years ago, when I was in one of my periodic Let's Get In Shape moods, I bought Robert Haas' EAT SMART, THINK SMART.

Haas gives his recipe for a Choline Cocktail, said to boost orgasms. This cocktail, he claims, stimulates related neurotransmitters transforming choline into acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter associated with the libido. Thus the more orgasms you want, the more you should increase your intake of choline.

Choline is found in beef liver and eggs as well in Brazil nuts, soy beans, fava beans, brewer's yeast, green leafy vegetables, peanut butter and sage. Choline is also found in lecithin.

I've place a jar of peaunt butter next to my bed.
