(CHICAGO) -- Women know the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but new research indicates the way to a man's bedroom is through pumpkin pie.
Staffers at Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center tested 40 aromas on men ages 18 to 64 to determine which one aroused them the most, and the smell of pumpkin pie beat even women's fragrances.
"The number-one odor that enhanced penile blood flow was a combination of lavender and pumpkin pie." said the center's director, Dr. Alan Hirsch.
Hirsch says pumpkin pie was the single strongest stimulant of the 40 tested.
Dr. Hirsch says every food odor tested aroused the male participants.
