The secret to making her all hot and lustful the first time you meet is to fire up the synapses in her brain. And the key is in finding the right formula to ignite her flames of passion. Here’s how you can manufacture the desired reaction with our six-point plan.
Grab A Pre-Dinner Mojito
Arrange to meet her for a pre-dinner cocktail and whet her appetite with a mojito. Lime is a rich source of vitamin C, which helps produce more testosterone. “Research shows it affects the sex drive in women,” says psychologist and sex therapist Dr Lori Boul. The mojito’s mint also focuses her interest and attention, according to a University of Cincinnati study in the US. Consider her senses sharpened.
Spray On A Woody Scent
It’s a noisy bar, so lean in close – and let her catch a hint of your musky and woody eau de toilette. Lanvin Avant Garde ($128, available at Tangs Orchard) features subtle hints of both ingredients. “Woody scents have been found to increase blood flow and boost women’s arousal by 16 per cent,” says Dr Laura Berman, an expert in female sexual health. Women are also highly sensitive to the scent of musk, which mimics the smell of male hormones. Your odds are looking up.
Share A Curry
Don’t bother with fine dining. Just take her out for nice, hot curry. “Hot food will increase her heart rate and flush her skin,” says Berman, “which fools her body into thinking it’s being aroused.” Curry also triggers dopamine production. “Dopamine controls pleasure, motivation and concentration,” says relationships and sex author Tracey Cox. So, hopefully, gulab jamun won’t be the only thing on the menu for later.
Step Into A Busy Bar
Thought you’d find a nice, quiet corner for last orders? Think again. Stop for a nightcap at a busy bar instead. Studies have shown clear links between sensory overload (that is, jostling crowds and thumping music) and neurotransmitters. “These ‘excitatory hormones’ create a racing heart and an adrenal rush of excitement, which stoke her arousal levels,” says Cox. Just watch out for other wannabe chemists at the “lab”.
Slip On Some Hip Hop
Back at your flat, sidestep the slow, seductive music. Instead, stick your iPod in the dock and head straight for hip-hop. The average resting female heartbeat is around 70bpm. To raise the stakes, play music with a slightly faster rhythm. “Research has shown that when subjects look at erotic pictures and hear a more rapid heartbeat, they are invariably fooled into finding that picture more attractive,” says Boul. Most hip-hop is in this higher rhythm range. Some Kanye might do the trick.
Fit Orange Bulbs At Home
Turning the lights low is a classic manoeuvre. But decreased illumination alone won’t increase her desire – unless you screw in orange bulbs. A study by the University of South Carolina in the US found that amber lighting was directly linked to female arousal, causing nitric oxide to be released by her body. “This is what causes her blood vessels to dilate, allowing more blood to be pumped through her body and heighten arousal,” says Cox. It’s the same chemical triggered by Viagra – and orange bulbs are cheaper than blue pills.
