Americans Like To Eat Pizza Before Sex, Survey Says, Because Aphrodisiacs Are Whatever You Want Them To Be

Forget about the typical aphrodisiacs like oysters, chocolate-covered strawberries, and wine to get you in the mood. Not that they’re unwelcome, of course. But as it turns out, most of us are pretty simple when it comes to the food people eat before sex. According to a new survey conducted by Yelp’s home food delivery service, Eat24, Americans like to eat pizza and ice cream before sex. Because, let’s be honest, nothing beats pizza.

“People usually associate oysters with getting frisky,” Eat24 CEO Mike Ghaffary said in a release. “But I think we all can agree eating pizza on the couch is way more relaxing. Plus, since you’re already on the couch anyway...well, you get the idea.”

Eat24 recently polled 2,000 adults on their pre-sex rituals from what men and women do to set the mood to the most common songs people listen to. According to the survey, over a third of people say they start setting the mood about an hour or two before they plan on getting it on. One in six people even start three to five hours beforehand.
