One recent study is likely to change how you look at... Pumpkin Pie?! That’s right! Apparently, this study found that 40% of men had increased arousal when they smelled pumpkin pie!
Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, said that when combined with lavender, the scent of pumpkin pie was shown to increase arousal by 40%!
Dr. Hirsch also recommended keeping the pumpkin seeds around. Their high zinc content may lead to a boost in testosterone. He also said another unexpected scent to increase arousal in men is... Vanilla! Who knew?!
