Will This Really Make Me Sexy?

Many people want to enhance, improve, or intensify their sex life or increase the sexual desire of others.  However, some attempts at making this improvement have had deadly consequences. Ever hear of Arthur Kendrick Ford?  He was convicted of the unintentional deaths of two women.  Evidently, he had given them candies laced with an odorless, colorless fatty substance secreted by blister beetles, which was supposed to be an aphrodisiac.  Lesson learned?  Not everything that promises to “take you to heaven” can be believed.  On the other hand, there are some harmless foods which we eat that are believed to have the qualities of an aphrodisiac.  The claim may or may not be true or scientifically proven, but the foods taste so good that nobody cares!  There has been scientific research which has proven that there are natural aphrodisiacs that yield health benefits instead of producing harmful results.

  1. That was such fun! I absolutely adored the clip from The Lady and the Tramp – I wish Disney still made animations like this instead of the same repetitive predictable nonsense 🙂
    In the quiz I got 7/10 but I have to tell you that in question #2, mandrake does not mean anything at all it Hebrew, as it is not derived from that language. It is from Greek Mandragoras, but nobody is sure of the meaning.
    From personal experience, I can tell you that the best aphrodisiac is a good atmosphere 😀
