Scallops are another choice because they're packed with zinc, and that benefits sexual function, if needed.

"Carotenoids are compounds in red colored foods like tomatoes that you'll find in a Bloody Mary, and in this particular study the researchers found individuals that had a lot of carotenoids were found to be more attractive to the opposite sex."
