Wine and cheese may almost sound like a cliche, but in fact theres a good and sexy reason we love it.
A little bit of alcohol, as you already know, lowers inhibitions and helps us relax.
But did you know that cheese is just as much of an aphrodisiac as a lovely snifter of well-aged port?
Some say the piquant scent of some cheeses is reminescent of the scent of a woman, but what is scientifically known is that cheese contains a high level of phenylethylamine (or PEA), nearly ten times as much as chocolate, which is a more widely known aphrodisiac. PEA is believed to release the same rush of hormones as sexual intercourse, which is plenty of reason to share a little bit before moving to the bedroom!
