Sometimes not only the enhancement supplements are called aphrodisiacs but also all sexual stimulants – erotic photographs, books, videos. Thus an aphrodisiac is any object whose taste, smell, image or sound may cause passion. The undeniable impact of an aphrodisiac is love, or at least sympathy, admiration. Modern man is so depressed and stressed by daily life and quantity of the information he receives that sometimes is not enough time not only for ourselves but also for the beloved ones. Then aphrodisiacs may come to the aid as a solution. However scientists have not yet proved that one or the other alleged aphrodisiac indeed promotes libido and potency. Some of these measures are only the placebo effect – only because the man is convinced. But medicine acknowledges that sex hormones and some psycho-stimulants indeed affect sexual drive or activity. Even if you stop taking sexual enhancements the effect might stay for longer periods and in some cases permanently. Moderate use of alcohol also has an incentive effect but in large doses and it inhibits sexual enhancement and constant use can cause impotence.
What people believe
But the science can not explain everything. What determines the fact that people meet their other half form the number of surrounding people? Is it just a gift of the destiny or maybe it’s art of seduction, or maybe… successfully used aphrodisiac? Since immemorial times man believes in myths, rumors and stories about the miracle of one or another aphrodisiac effects. People have always looked for measures that would preserve the youth and sexuality – a potency (first mentioned in Egyptian papyrus in 2000 BC.). Practically every nations folklore has a ‘love potion “that supposedly arouse passion”. The Ancient Romans loved various “love potions” in which the components could be anything: caviar, lobster tails, pigeons blood and heart, ash of the burned skin dissolved in a lover’s blood, frog bones, feathers from a cock’s tail, sparrow brains, tobacco, lovers hair, even a dead mans bones stolen from the cemetery… And nowadays there are many myths about the aphrodisiacs.
Seduction of the food
Sexologists are telling that the art of food and seduction are related. A variety of food might be an aphrodisiac. They have long been regarded as exotic meat, seafood and vegetable dishes, various spices. Still now caviar, crab, oysters, ginger root, ginseng, golden root, as well as onions, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, egg white, honey, mustard, pumpkin seeds and chocolate are classified as aphrodisiacs. Hindu Kamasutra says that before sex intercourse a dish of rice should be eaten. King Henry IV of France, famous for romance, has been drinking every morning shot of brandy with the diluted egg yolk in it. To increase the potency celtics drank beer with yolk. Wine, particularly sparkling wine, is thought to have aphrodisiac qualities too. Italians believe that sex drive is stimulated by chili peppers, strawberries, chocolate, caviar and oysters. Widespread stories of sex passion is based on oysters anatomical features. Oysters are assigned to androgyny, namely bisexual beings, due to a double sexual energy. The interesting thing is that this myth is denied by another myth – the oyster eating may cause non-traditional sexual orientation. Neither one nor the other is a true. Even in ancient times was believed that raw meat, eggs, oysters, pepper, mint, parsley and even carrots may effect sexual life. Z.Freud was convinced that the most effective libido enhancers are rye bread, pumpkin seeds, dried fruits, mushrooms and nettle. This view is consistent by researchers by adding yet nuts, dates and honey.
Use with caution
Since ancient times was believed that the male sex organs and their secretions have a strong erotic effect. It was eaten some animal testicles or drunk their sperm. Both of them contain hormones – testosterone and prostaglandins – which does really have stimulating impact. The alkaloids derived from plants of horny goat weed and tongkat ali have also real aphrodisiacal impact because they direct influence on erection and ejaculation nerve centers. As Kamasutra says: “The measures to initiate sexual enhancement must be soft, natural, well-coordinated and used with caution in order to achieve the stated objective.” That’s why one of the choices might be well balanced natural herbal enhancement supplements.
Allies of Passion
“Food has two important senses of sexuality – sense of smell and taste. It gives a sense of satisfaction. But the only true aphrodisiac – the imagination,” – says the University of Italian literature professor Falko Portinari. Sometimes it might be accompanied by only natural herbal enhancement supplements. A romantic dinner can be an ally of passion, but… More women than men sees the link between food and sex. One woman in four believes that a man can be sexually seduced not only by sexy dress but also by a romantic dinner. Thus an aphrodisiac may be anything that is capable of stimulating the human imagination. Best sexual passion effect might be reached while combining romantic dinner and natural enhancement supplements at the same time.
