There are over 900 known substances considered sexual
stimulants throughout history, nonetheless most of them haven’t
resisted the test of time or even left scientific evidence. In fact,
there are plenty of myths about aphrodisiacs, what proves once again
that when it comes to sexuality and sexual enhancement people can be
very inventive and creative.
Since there’s no scientific evidences of the aphrodisiac efficacy,
many researchers defend the theory that there isn’t such a substance
that’s actually capable to work as sexual
stimulant. However the so called precious potion of love doesn’t really
exist, most of the substances considered aphrodisiacs, specially certain
aliments, have properties of well-being sensations granted to people,
what may wind up in enhancing sexuality.
What is certainly proved is that the efficacy of an aphrodisiac depends
directly on whether the person using it believes in its effects or
not. In most cases the person would feel more excited due to the psychological
factors, because he wants to be more aroused, and not because of a
specific physical alteration.
Fortunately, not every aliment claimed as featuring aphrodisiac properties
is rare, and you won’t have to travel to the Far East spending a fortune
to buy it. Despite the myths referring to spices that are really almost
impossible to get hold of, you may find aliments with the same stimulant
characteristics in your kitchen, or in your local groceries shop.
However, we need to bear in mind that there’s no such a thing as
miraculous aliment, which is able to cure impotence, frigidity or
STD. Aphrodisiacs are supposed to extend or stimulate pleasure, by
yielding good sensations. Aphrodisiacs are not medicines, even if
they may actually improve your sexuality. If you’re having further
serious problems, it’s better to check with your clinician to find
a specific treatment.
A healthy nutrition is essential to a good life in bed. Recent researches
have showed that there are four most commonly used aliments that may
act as stimulants: garlic, honey, anchovy and wheat germ. Garlic displays
antibiotic and antiseptic properties, providing also energy to the
body. Recently there was discovered that the main elements that result
in the strong and acrid smell of garlic are the same produced by a
woman sexually aroused. Bee honey is presented in pictures of ancient
erotic books, and it’s currently found in pill form to improve sexuality
in many parts of the world. Anchovies are rich in phosphorous, minerals
and trace elements that are essential to our body. Oysters are the
most well known aphrodisiacs found in the sea, because of their shape
and smell remind of the female genitalia, but the anchovies are better
There are also plenty of herbs deemed to be good aphrodisiacs, such
as basil, mint, and parsley as well as aliments like celery, nuts,
chestnuts, almond, watercress and asparagus.The only way to find out
if some of these aliments may actually improve sexual life is by trying
them, but always use fresh herbs, and avoid adding too much condiments
in food. The least you’ll get will be the reputation of a bad cook
or even intoxication, depending on the aliment used.
A remarkable aspect of the aphrodisiac effects refers to the phenomenon
of association. If a person has a bath with oils from a particular
substance believed aphrodisiacal, and in turn becomes relaxed, having
a good night of sex and an awesome orgasm, next time he/she smells
the scent of those substances, he/she will unconsciously recollect
sensations. The person probably will once again feel aroused and
excited, even if the aroma of the oils didn’t produce any reaction
by themselves. The same happens with herb flavors, fruits, or any
type of aphrodisiac.
There’s no perfect aphrodisiac as such, since it depends on several
factors, hormone stimulation inclusive. So if someone discovers a
complete and 100% guaranteed aphrodisiac, it will be something that
may provoke undesirable alterations in the way that our body works.
In fact, everything can be aphrodisiac, since every kind of smell,
taste, or feel may entice our sexuality. It’s up to you and your partner
to try out some of theses suggestions to literally spice up your relationship,
and you’ll discover that the best aphrodisiac is the desire itself.
