Let’s be frank men, sex is important and more and better is more and better. I started thinking about this when I saw a story in the LIAT airline magazine (Issue 4, 2008). The article was about a food festival in Guadeloupe and ended with the following … “last but not least, there is the notorious bois bande – either in the form of rolled pieces of bark or steeped in bottles of rum. This is actually the bark of a tree known for its male enhancing properties and has long been in use before the advent of Viagra!”
This made me think of the stir Viagra made when it was first introduced. Although it was designed as a medical drug to help with male sexual problems, it was embraced as a means to enhance sexual performance, by both men and women. This tells us something about the importance of sex to the human race. Viagra and other similar drugs work by increasing blood flow to the penis. This is great, but a number of people experience side effects from these drugs, that are unpleasant at least, and harmful at worst.
This led me to thinking about natural enhancers. First, it seemed that exercise must be a key, because it increases blood flow generally. So … it’s not directed specifically, but increased blood flow is increased blood flow, right? So another reason to make exercise an important part of your daily routine.
Then I decided to check on aphrodisiacs – foods intended to increase sexual desire and performance. Here’s the list I found:
Anise, aniseed, almonds, arugula, asparagus, asafetida, avocado, hananas, basil, carrots, chocolate, coffee, coriander, fennel, figs, garlic, ginger, honey, nunmeg, mustard, oysters, pine nuts, pistachio nuts, pineapple, raspberries and strawberries, sage, truffles, turnips, vanilla.
That’s interesting …. They are all foods that are good for you. So … eating well is also the key to a good sex life, right?
I found the following recipe which sounded perfect for a celebration:
Bring 3 tablespoons crystallized ginger, ¼ cup sugar and ½ cup water to the boil and simmer to consistency of maple syrup. Strain and add ¼ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder. Drop ½ teaspoon crystallized ginger and 1 star anise into each glass, add 1 tablespoon syrup and about 3 ounces of champagne.
Enjoy and get in the mood for love!
