After witnessing a minor sexual tragedy in my house the other night (involving a snapped banjo string), it made me think about male genitals, particularly sperm.
What an odd little thing; swimming towards its goal with only a nucleus to power it. Fascinating.
But its all about survival of the fittest in the complex world of the sperm. What supplements can the little chap take to make it faster, healthier and stronger?
Below are five foods that can make the most average of sperm an egg conquering warrior.
No wonder sex at Christmas is terrific! The zinc found in Turkey increases testosterone levels and increases the sperms ability to move both spontaneously and independently.
Infact, zinc is fairly widespread and can be found in foods such as beef, yoghurt, oats and corn.
Knowledge that the pineapple adds a delightful injection of sweetness into the semen is fairly common. Pineapple is high in natural sugars which offset the naturally bitter taste of semen.
Another more unlikely source of sweetness is celery. The high chloropyll content in celery helps to sweeten the taste of semen.
This is why your parents tell you to eat your greens, no parent wishes their son to have bad tasting jizz!
The above foods may make your semen taste nice, but what's the point in having sweet swallowing spunk if it's not healthy?
The high Vitamin A content in carrots help sperm to grow healthily and improves male fertility.
Now I know salmon might be a no-no for some; no one wants fishy jizz. However, it has no real effect on taste and actually increases sexual function.
The essential omega-3 fatty acids and DHA in salmon and other fish improve blood flow to the genitals!
