What's with women and chocolate?
Today I woke up feeling a restless urge to eat chocolate. I'm not depressed, I'm not PMS (far away from that, oh God!), I just knew I needed something with the power of healing. Not because I was feeling some kind of void in my life, but only because I'm an Aries therefor I'm very insatiable and very hard to please. I see no harm in that!

Taste aside (and we'll get there), studies have shown that chocolate contains phenylethylamine - the same chemical that is release in your brain when you fall in love. Now I get it!! How cool could it be if we fell in love three or four times per week! Actually it sound kinda exhausting, and lame, but still, it's an exciting idea having butterflies in your stomach whenever you feel like to. And I can go on: it is also believed that phenylethylamine causes the brain to release mesolimbic dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain, another chemical where its presence is at peak during an orgasm. And what about the sweetness of the chocolate? It also triggers the release of endorphins, causing you that wonderful feeling you get after sex (or lovemaking for the more conservatives).

Chocolate... ummmm... I prefer to call it sinful. Imagine it melting in your mouth, little bites, playing the taste through your tongue, and slowly licking your lips, savoring the feeling. You know what I'm talking about. The fulfilling happiness when you make love to a chocolate bar! Or cake. Lucky me I have my personal Prince Charming willing to get me my favorite luscious chocolate cake at anytime of the day. Jealous??
