Throughout the ages, men and women have eagerly swallowed almost any substance that was called an aphrodisiac, no matter how unappetizing or bizarre. In our never-ending search for better sex, humans have consumed such diverse items as oysters, eels, elephant tusks, lion blood, bull testicles, rhino horn, ram penis, pig genitals, marijuana, and the dried remains of the Mediterranean cantharis beetle, otherwise known as “Spanish Fly.”

Eating the genitals of animals noted for their potency, such as bulls and rams, is another historical practice meant to ensure virility.
Are these substances of mythology really aphrodisiacs? As it turns out, some of them do work as sex boosters. For example, oysters are a prime source of zinc, one of the essential minerals for men. Semen is rich in zinc, and adequate zinc is needed for sperm production and hormone metabolism. Oysters also release testosterone in women.

How does a couple get started with food and sex? Begin by setting the mood for love and stimulating all the senses. For example oranges can make your home smell fresh and inviting, so can apple pie or cinnamon. So find out what your lover’s favorite food aromas are and indulge them. Then share meals together and feed one and other. Even if you’re on a diet you can share an asparagus by one person taking one end of the asparagus in their mouth and the other person taking the other end, then meet in the middle. This can be fun with carrots, celery, and pasta too.
