So, we have covered many of the delicious foods that we men can enjoy to boost our sex lives. But what about where to source these foods? Are there any particular restaurants where we can enjoy foods which will help us in the bedroom? The answer is yes. There are many restaurants right here in London, and what better idea for a romantic date (possibly with a gorgeous London escort) than to visit a venue which specifically caters in cuisine to ignite passion.
Everyone enjoys a pleasant aroma, but can that enjoyment go any further, causing you to feel differently? Some scents are said to be able to evoke particular emotions, including sexual desire - which is why some smells are aphrodisiacs. Some would say that they are nature's secret weapon; it's amazing what a powerful affect a scent can have.
Across the Southern parts of Europe, you can find an emerald coloured blister beetle known as the 'Spanish fly'. For hundreds of years, apothecaries have used the crushed bodies of these beetles for medical purposes, and they also gained a reputation long ago as being a powerful aphrodisiac.
Because foods and drinks have only been speculated and not proved to increase sexual desire, it's difficult to specify exactly what is and what isn't an aphrodisiac. A lot of it depends on what mood you are already in, who is your companion and whether you believe it will work. Just like placebo drugs, aphrodisiacs will probably only have the desired affect if you believe that they will.
The word aphrodisiac refers to anything, regardless of the source, that increases sexual desire. Using aphrodisiacs can be an exciting way to spice up your love life, but we shouldn't forget the roots of love and sex! The word 'aphrodisiac' is taken from the word 'Aphrodite', which is the name of the Greek Goddess of Love, sexuality and beauty.
In the world of aphrodisiacs, not everything comes in the form of food. One well known libido booster for men is a leafy plant called Horny Goat Weed, otherwise known as Yin Tan Huo or Epimedium. For many years it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, and is typically found growing in Asia or in the Mediterranean.
