Chocolate has long been considered a romance enhancer, and rightly so. It contains the mood-lifting hormones Phenylethylamine and Serotonin, which elevate the levels naturally found in the brain, increasing feelings of excitement. Ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations discovered the mighty cacao bean and its aphrodisiac properties long before the rest of the world. Montezuma, emperor of the Aztecs, recognized the potency of drinking a beverage made of the beans and consumed massive amounts daily, but forbade his numerous wives from indulging, lest they be aroused by another! Feeding bits of chocolate by hand to the object of your affection is sure to set the mood.
Ginger is powerful as an aphrodisiac and can increase one's prowess as it stimulates the circulatory system, flooding sensitivity to the reproductive centers. It contains zingiberene and gingerols giving the flavor of seduction to all cuisines. The ancient Kama Sutra touts ginger as one of the aphrodisiacs most potent to lovemaking. All Scorpios and any other sign seeking help in amorous adventures should always have ginger on hand.
The name alone can illicit the idea of romance and sensuousness! Passion fruit are the small edible globes from the passion flower vines prevalent in the rain forests of the Amazon, where it is eaten out-of-hand or used in many delicious dishes.

The tiny seeds of the passion fruit represent fertility and that says it all! Scorpios and all other signs alike should hit the exotic fruit market, especially while the Scorpio Sun shines on everyone!
