In my previous article (see http://www.betterloveiseasy.com/aphrodisiacs.html
), I introduced the idea of using natural aphrodisiacs to enhance
sexual stimulation and pleasure.
Many people may benefit from taking
safe, natural products that function as aphrodisiacs to have more or
better sex. Natural substances can also be used to address sexual
problems such as erectile dysfunction and can be used for treating
These products work by either
enhancing the physical capabilities of men (better, longer-lasting,
more frequent erections), or by enhancing the mood and receptivity
of both men and women to engaging in sexual intercourse. As with all
herbal and medical products, some work better for some people than
others, and it is important to be open minded and patient in
evaluating effectiveness. So, let's consider a few more natural
products to set the stage for romance and passion.
Peaches: In China, some men use this
fruit to enhance interest in sex. It is unknown what biochemical
properties may be involved in this effect, but it is clear that a
succulent, ripe, juicy peach, peeled and fed piece by piece to one's
intended lover, can set the tone for the next hour or two. Be sure
to use fully ripe and sweet fruit and avoid the skin, which can
cause irritation to the skin and lips of sensitive people.
Pine Nuts: These small seeds of the
pine tree were used in ancient Rome as an aphrodisiac. Try grinding
them together with olive oil and fresh basil and adding them to
pasta or use as a dip with chips.
Damiana: A type of wild yam, Damiana
grows in the Baja California region of Mexico and in the West
Indies. It has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac. Some
people report that it seems to increase the sensitivity of the
genitals and induce erotic dreams when taken before bedtime. It is
sometimes mixed with alcohol or served as a tea and can be purchased
in capsule form on the internet.
Oysters and Mussels: Oysters are well
known for their reputation as an erotic food. They are rich in the
mineral zinc, which is important for the biosynthesis of
testosterone, the main male sex hormone. Testosterone is vital for
the male sex drive and is probably also involved in the libido of
women. What many people do not know is that mussels have the same
properties as oysters, and may even be more potent as a sexual
Onions: Despite the obvious concern
about a potential lover's reaction to smelling onion on the breath,
in ancient Egypt and in India onions were considered an important
edible aphrodisiac. Onions probably work best to enhance the mood
for sex when both partners partake of this special ingredient. They
can be cooked into a romantic French onion soup, or eaten raw with
salt, perhaps with pleasant music in the background.
Let your lover know your purpose when
you are experimenting with natural aphrodisiacs. Just entering into
an erotic frame of mind with someone special can have amazing
aphrodisiacal properties all on its own.
