Named for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sensuality, eroticism, and sexuality, an aphrodisiac is something that turns you on and increases your desire to have sex. Aphrodisiacs may also improve your ability to have sex. This means that under the right circumstances almost anything could have aphrodisiac qualities. Most people think of something to eat or drink when they think of aphrodisiacs. Traditionally, aphrodisiacs were foods and plant extracts. Now they’re also human-made substances.
Some aphrodisiacs work because they feed your body what it needs to produce your own natural sexy chemicals. A number of the aphrodisiacs mentioned in our women’s and men’s sections fall into the category referred to as adaptogens. These substances work with your central nervous system (CNS) to deliver more energy and endurance when you need them. But unlike other CNS stimulants, such as caffeine or amphetamines, they don’t give you that extra boost and then follow it with a big letdown. They don’t deplete your body’s reserves; instead, they build them. (more…)
In a succinct guide, author and researcher William Livingstone has packed information on proven, ancient herbal sexual aphrodisiacs. Obscure sources are uncovered as a result of over twenty years of avid health research. Ancient Chinese and Indian products are examined, with their historical plus suggested usage, products helpful for erectile dysfunction (E.D.), impotence, and low libido (sex drive.)
West Palm Beach, FL, July 25, 2008 –(PR.com)– A multitude of men are increasingly dissatisfied with their sex drive, with many suffering from erectile dysfunction (E.D.), low libido and impotence. Many factors contribute to this decline in male sexual potency, including overwork, stress, lack of sleep, and estrogens in the environment, among others.
Many men are turning to the natural alternatives to prescription drugs being touted on the Internet, tv infomercials, radio, or in print ads. Most, if not all these products are overpriced and many contain yohimbe, an herb known to raise blood pressure. These products may also be weak, and a waste of the consumer’s money. Though there are some that may work, they are usually for a quick term result, not for the long term building of a flagging libido.
Some men – and a good few women – are not averse to taking Viagra to give their sex lives a little extra spice even though they don’t really need it. Personally I’ve always been wary of buying prescription drugs over the net, as this can be very dangerous. Here’s a smart alternative. Holland and Barrett have a range of natural products created to enhance your libido. These include Horny Goat Weed (available in male and female varieties) which is believed to naturally improve libido; Damiana Leaves which were originally used by indigenous cultures of Central America to improve libido and stimulate oxygen flow to the genitals to improve potency; and Muira Puama, known as ‘potency wood’ which was used by Brazil’s indigenous tribes as an aphrodisiac, to treat erectile dysfunction and to help maintain an erection.
We all know that flowers make a perfect gift for women who are discerning and elegant. To coincide with National Orgasm Day on July 31st, Emotional Bliss, the UK vibrator company, has commissioned leading French floral designer Arôme Créateur Floral to create an aphrodisiac-themed floral arrangement.
An entirely original floral arrangement which not only appeals to Emotional Bliss’ core clientele of women aged 40 to 60 years of age, but also composed of aphrodisiacs and spices which subtly and tastefully evoke the theme of female sexuality.
The “gourmet bouquet” features a variety of seasonal blooms as well as anthuriums, an exotic flower which has an unusual appearance: a huge glossy heart, surrounding a phallic-looking stamen. Bananas, baby corn, orange peppers and carrots are included as their shape is reminiscent of sexual organs and reputed to enhance sexual desire. Ginger roots are also used as they excite the senses.
Pheromones are volatile, odorous substances which are released by one animal and detected by another, causing some sort of physiological reaction. These reactions can manifest themselves in a variety of different ways: some pheromones modulate sexual activity, some affect aggression, some play roles in territory marking, and other pheromones have similarly diverse effects on the target animal. Pheromones have been demonstrated in a very large number of organisms ranging from amoebas to fish to mammals, including primates. However, the question of whether human olfactory signals exist has been a question of much debate and few definite conclusions. In this paper I will look at some possible examples of odor signaling in humans. (more…)
For thousands of years people have pursued plants, potions, scents, and stimulants believed to boost sexual desire.
The world’s aphrodisiacs—named for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty—range from the mundane to the downright bizarre.
