Eating chocolate realeases chemicals in your body that cause pleasure. It creates a feeling similar to sex, but it has no effect on your sex drive.

Exerpt from the wikipedia arcticle on chocolate:

"Part of the pleasure of eating chocolate is due to the fact that its melting point is slightly below human body temperature: it melts in the mouth. Chocolate intake has been linked with release of serotonin in the brain, which produces feelings of pleasure.[18] A study reported by the BBC indicated that melting chocolate in one's mouth produced an increase in brain activity and heart rate that was more intense than that associated with passionate kissing, and also lasted four times as long after the activity had ended.[19] Research has shown that heroin addicts tend to have an increased liking for chocolate; this may be because it triggers dopamine release in the brain's reinforcement systems[20] - an effect, albeit a legal one, similar to that of cocaine."

Chocolate contains flavinols and arginine which increase nitric oxide levels in the blood. Viagra increases nitric oxide in the blood. Nitric oxide causes smooth muscle relaxation and artery dilation.
