Science: Pumpkin Pie is Sexy!

You've heard the saying 'a way to a man's heart is through his stomach' and it turns out that just might be more true than anyone realised. Well, perhaps it's not the way to his heart, but according to Dr. Alan Hirsch from the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center in Chicago, the scent of pumpkin pie mixed with lavender does cause a significant level of arousal in men. The center's research showed that the aroma of pumpkin pie caused a 40% increase in penile bloodflow, compared with things such as cranberry sauce that only increased it by a mere 2%. Pah!

So, if you want to impress a certain special man in your life next Halloween, make him some pumpkin pie and light lavender scented candles in your jack o' lanterns for a double dose of turn-on!
