Whether you are male or female, straight, bisexual, or gay, I will be inviting you to let me know your thoughts and ask any sexual health related questions. Though I am not a doctor, I am here to talk and discuss topics that are on your mind, as long as it's sexual health related and in good taste.


Oral Aphrodisiacs
Kick Starting Your Sex Drive & Mileage

An aphrodisiac is a food, drink, drug, scent, or device that can arouse or increase sexual desire or libido. In this article, I will be talking about setting your love life on fire - making your sex life sizzling hot!

Do aphrodisiacs really work? Let's look over the many varieties and forms that aphrodisiacs come in, and I'll let you (and your partner) try them and decide! Named after Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty, the list of supposed sexual stimulants and aphrodisiacs are in the hundreds.

Setting the mood for love may require more than just candles and soft music - although together, both do create an aura of intimacy. Foods in many forms and textures have played a historical role in our sexuality, which is why some people agree that food plays an even more important role, while setting the mood for love.

banana The phallic shape of a banana and cucumber, the delicate fuzz and sweet juice of a ripe peach, the silkiness of melted chocolate, the bite of spice from a hot pepper - all are inviting and appealing to both the taste buds and an erotic imagination.

avocado If you want to talk about an imagination, the ancient Aztec name for avocado was "ahuacatl," meaning testicle tree, because of the fruit's appearance. During avocado harvests, virgin girls were even forbidden from going outdoors!

cucumber Today, research has shown that some of the most popularly known aphrodisiacs are proven to contain certain vitamins and minerals that contribute to a healthy libido, and of course a healthy reproductive system.

The food of love, oysters, were made legendary by the Romans in the second century A.D. as an aphrodisiac, and legend tells that Casanova ate dozens of oysters a day, once even seducing a vestal virgin by sliding an oyster from his lips to hers. True or not, Casanova, here are some known facts.

  • Chilies may amp up your sex life too, due to capsaicin - the substance that gives kick to peppers, curries and other spicy foods. Capsaicin works by stimulating nerve endings to release chemicals, raising the heart rate and possibly triggering the release of endorphins.

  • Chocolate: No edible erotic discussion would be complete without chocolate. Continually the traditional lover's gift, research suggests the stimulant phenylethylamine, found in chocolate, creates a sense of well being and excitement just as though you were making love. One of the most effective aphrodisiacs available, a fact that women have known for centuries.

    The Aztecs referred to chocolate "nourishment of the Gods," and scientists agree. Chocolate contains chemicals thought to effect neurotransmitters in the brain and a related substance to caffeine called theobromine. Chocolate contains more antioxidants than red wine.

  • Coffee: A stimulant which can get your love motor running, in just small amounts.

  • Coriander (Cilantro Seed): The Arabian Night's Book, dating back over 100 years, tells a tale of a mixture which included coriander, helping a merchant have a child after 40 childless years.

Chocolate Creates A Sense Of Excitement.

  • Cucumbers: Obviously phallic in shape and aphrodisiacal in nature, these cool vegetables stimulate a woman's olfactory senses (sense of smell).

  • Figs: Traditionally thought of as a sexual stimulant, an open fig is thought to resemble the female sex organs.

  • Garlic: Share with your partner (within meals, in moderation) and let the "heat" in garlic stir your sexual desires.

  • Ginger: Stimulate your circulatory system with ginger root in all forms, such as raw, cooked or crystallized.

  • Honey: Thought to "sweeten" a marriage - lovers over the centuries have used honey as a cure for sterility and impotence.

  • Liquorice (Licorice): Popular since ancient times, the Chinese have used the essence of the Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) plant, glycrrhizin (50 times sweeter than sugar), for medicinal purposes. Particularly stimulating to woman, chewing on bits of licorice root is said to enhance love and lust.

  • Mussels: Related to the oyster, mussels deliver more sex appeal to your pallet and senses.

  • Mustard: Used in cooking, mustard is said to stimulate the sexual glands and increase desire.

  • Nutmeg: In quantity, nutmeg can produce a hallucinogenic effect - but with a sprinkling it can heat up your night; an aphrodisiac fact known by Chinese women for years.

Peaches Are Sensual Fruit,
Engaging To The Sex Drive.

  • Onions: The ancient Hindu, Egyptian, and Arabic kitchens kept onions close by at all times. Onions are powerful on both your breath and in the bedroom.

  • Oysters: Were coined by the Romans in the second century A.S. as an aphrodisiac food. Very nutritious and high in protein, a common thought is that the oyster resembles the female genitals. They are high in zinc, a mineral used in the production of testosterone.

  • Peaches: The Chinese have known for centuries that this ripe, sensual fruit is as engaging to the sex drive as it is to the palate. Feed to your lover whole for a juicy, delectable delight. Select firm, unblemished fruit, and then store it in a paper bag until it's perfectly ripe.

  • Pine Nuts: Since Medieval times, with their rich zinc content, pine nuts have been used to stimulate the libido, and maintain male potency.

  • Pineapple: Used in homeopathic treatments for impotence because of its vitamin C content.

  • Raspberries & Strawberries: These "fruit nipples" as described in erotic literature, are high in vitamin C, and are perfect finger foods to share with your lover.

  • Truffles: With their musky scent, said to stimulate and sensitize the skin to touch, French chefs prized them. The Greeks and the Romans all ate them for their amatory powers.

The Warm Scent Of Vanilla Increases Lust.

  • Vanilla: Enjoyed by both women and men, the warm scent of vanilla is believed to increase lust.

  • Wine: An erotic drinking experience, wine relaxes and helps to stimulate our senses. A glass or two can lead to after dinner romance, but chance drinking more and your night may not have the same closing act...

Additional certain smells of foods are noted to be sexually arousing - such as pumpkin pie and buttered popcorn for men and licorice candy for women. Mmmmmm!

Below are some incredible herbal products for male & female intimacy, which are made to heat up your love life.

For men, the best results are from Male Energy Aphrodisiac with yohimbe and horny goat weed, Tostron, Passion Plus, and HGH.

For someone who doesn't need a big boost, try Saw Palmetto and Ginkgo Biloba. For men over 40, add DHEA, known as the fountain of youth, when used in the correct doses. Consulting a physician before starting any supplement program is always best. A common dose for men to start with is between 5-25 mg daily.

Men and women over age 60 are often prescribed 50mg and 100mg. Since younger people naturally produce more DHEA, less is needed to be taken. Pregnant or nursing women should avoid supplementing with DHEA.
