    Oysters.

    Oysters are rich in rare amino acids that are supposedly good for your sex drive, which has led to a common perception that they're an aphrodisiac. The truth, however, is a lot more complicated.

    2–3 inches.

    Through a process known as vaginal tenting, when a woman is aroused muscular tension pulls the uterus upwards which makes the vagina wider and longer. A vagina starts out 3–4 inches in lengths but can reach around 5–6 inches during arousal. It returns to its original size after intercourse is finished.
