We are aware that eating carrots will give your skin an orange shade, chocolate induces pleasure, and oysters increase sex drive. There is scientific evidence that these foods have chemicals that react with our pigments and hormones to cause these effects. But did you know that they also react with each other when consumed together?

Double Effect: Chocolate and Oysters

Chocolate and oysters individually induce the secretion of what is often called the “feel-good hormone”, dopamine. But these effects DOUBLE with the mixing of the two foods. The zinc in oysters reacts synergistically with the phenethylamine in chocolate, enhancing each other’s effects, sometimes even by ten fold!

This often means literally hours of desire for sexual activity guaranteed for men and women. It goes without saying that they tend to be popular amongst couples on special dates planning for even more special after-dates.

It’s true that eating too many carrots tinges your skin orange. This is because our bodies only convert the necessary amount of beta-carotene, the orange pigment in carrots, into Vitamin A. The unused amount gets absorbed into our skin through the bloodstream, giving the orange tint.

Now here’s the catch; this effect gets twisted when consumed with oysters, the aphrodisiac. For men, it results in partial pigmentation of the private parts, sometimes even the semen! Because the stimulant chemicals in oysters mainly affect sex hormones, the increased chemical activity in the area attracts beta-carotene to store in concentration. Rather effectively, your private areas get a yellowish orange makeover. So the next time you’re ordering appetizers, only order this combination if you want to add some color into your sex life.

Green Pleasure: Carrots and Chocolate

Chocolate brings out pleasure and carrots make us orange. But what happens when they’re eaten together? As chocolate’s melting point is below human body temperature, eating chocolate adjusts our tongue’s temperature to drop slightly – the mouth tries to make the temperature difference as small as possible for maximum pleasure. This temperature affects beta-carotene by changing its dominantly displayed pigment from orange to green.

The green tint isn’t too noticeable, but with enough consumption, you’ll detect a green glow underneath your skin, especially around the eyes. If you’re looking for some organic green eye-makeup, you know what to do.

Now all I’d like to say is: April Fool’s! No hard feelings but I’m sure there was something in you that wished this worked.
