Aphrodisiacs are stimulants meant to arouse or intensify sexual desire between partners. There is no scientific proof for the existence of real aphrodisiacs but it is said that love makes it real.
Here’s our Top Ten list of aphrodisiacs you can use to drive her wild:
- Number one on the list is love. By which we mean showing it, feeling it and doing it, preferably all over the place—can’t beat this one, it’s really all you need. Here’s a tip that works: try giving her long soulful kisses at odd times of the day, during breakfast, or when you just have a second, and not as just a prelude to sex. You’ll be surprised how surprised she’ll be and in a good way, that you seem to want to just give her a real kiss without something else coming immediately after. That might get things warmed up for a follow-up later on.
- Can’t make love to your woman without R-e-s-p-e-c-t. That’s a priority for guys out there who still don’t get the message.
- You don’t have to be in perfect “penile health,” unless you’re married to a sexologist, but getting in shape wouldn’t hurt. Eating healthy and avoiding smoking will also help prevent diabetes or blood pressure, which in turn have an impact on your sex drive.
- The sexual function or its lack is sometimes related to the mind. An underlying depression might be secretly sabotaging your sex drive. Going for counseling or psychoanalysis can get you a liberating insight into the true nature of your desires and really boost your sex drive. We would not suggest telling your wife, “You should have your head examined,” if you ever hope to have sex again.
- If you’re going in for supplements, asks your doctor about natural herbs like Tongkat ali, Tribulus, and horny goat weed first. And please don’t mention the last one to your partner—laughter ain’t such a great aphrodisiac in bed. Other renowned plants include Yohimbe and Maca. These are known for their restorative function.
- Making a pretty late appearance on our list is Viagra. Though strictly speaking, this is not an aphrodisiac, Viagra is meant to only give you a strong erection. If your erection can turn her on, then you have an aphrodisiac that works for both of you. Be careful about the side effects if you have bad blood pressure. Make sure you consult your physician first.
- You can’t go wrong making love out of chocolate. This one’s a big turn on for women, even if they’re on a diet. FYI (in case she asks): chocolate contains both phenylethylamine and serotonin, two chemicals which stimulate the pleasure areas in the brain. If it doesn’t work, at least she’ll be impressed with your knowledge.
- Spanish Fly. This is actually an emerald green beetle which contains around 5 percent of cantharidin; the latter being a poisonous chemical compound used to stimulate animals. If you got this off the streets, chances are they just sold you some pepper. If it’s the real thing, all you’re going to get is some fever and burning pain the next time you take a leak. It’s a myth, folks. Let’s keep it that way.
- Rhino horn. There is no scientific evidence linking Rhino horn to charged sexual prowess and it just doesn’t work unless killing a nearly extinct species turns you on. It’s just the penis-like shape that gives the impression that you can impale a woman just using the substance. Again, a most questionable and harmful myth that needs to be debunked and neutered out of social existence.
- Alcohol. Yes. If nothing else, getting her schnockered on beer will make you look beautiful to her. Unfortunately, consuming large quantities of alcohol might have the reverse effect of making you the poster kid for erectile dysfunction. Small quantities, however, can do wonders. Go for expensive wines if you can—she’ll appreciate the romantic touch and you’ll avoid the headache brought on by MadDog 20/20.
