PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The secret to better sex could be in a classic Thanksgiving dessert

"Throw away the perfume and go get some pumpkin pie," said Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center.

In a study of men ages 18 to 64, 40 aromas were tested to determine which arouses men the most. The smell of pumpkin pie topped ladies' fragrances.

"The number one odor that enhanced penile blood flow was a combination of lavender and pumpkin pie," said Hirsch.

Hirsch said tha combination increased penile blood flow by an average of 40 percent in participants.

Pumpkin pie was the single strongest stimulant.

....0.o wow.

Gotta get my gf to make me some pumpkin pie and wear lavender.
For the other side of the equation, cucumber and licorice.
The vanilla and strawberry smells make sense. During puberty a lot of girls wear fruity smelling stuff and as such there's a smell association between sweet fruit smells and being absurdly horny. The vanilla is similar, a lot of women's ferfume use vanilla as a component of their overall fragrance. I know I like it when my other half wears perfume with a vanilla undercurrent to it.
Finally found a use for this leftover pumpkin pie.
CL doesn't like pumpkin pie :2razz:

(not that there's any issue there :mrgreen:)
I knew there was a reason why my bacon, pumpkin and viagra pies were always a hit at the nursing home.
Any man who has to talk about which foods increase his sex drive isn't a real man.
