Aphrodisiacs: Better Sex or Just Bunk?
No discussion of aphrodisiacs would be complete without mention of Spanish fly, the most legendary of the love drugs, but also the most dangerous. Spanish fly, or cantharides, is extracted from dried beetle dung. Reported sexual excitement after taking Spanish fly stems from its ability to irritate the urogenital tract, causing a rush of blood to the genital area. And that's not the down side! Spanish fly is a poison that burns the mouth and throat, and can cause urinary infections, scarring of the urethra, and in some rare cases, death.
Aside from the groundbreaking release of Viagra, there have been few laboratory studies on aphrodisiacs. To date, the only evidence of any organic aphrodisiacs has been anecdotal and subjective.
Sights, sounds, and scents within your reach are the best precursors for a romp in the hay. Nothing can compare with the sight of your partner's lips parted in a smile -- or the sound of those three words, "I love you." Combined with a healthy dose of mind candy (your imagination), you're well on your way to a fabulous night of sexual exploration.
