Everybody has heard of the usual suspects when it comes to aphrodisiacs: oysters, Spanish fly, caviar, great big
rolls of dough. Most, or least a lot, of people enjoy oysters, caviar, and especially big rolls of dough whether they are aphrodisiacs or not so it makes the enjoyment of them for the purpose of revving up the nether engines a no-brainer. But what about those unusual, bizarre, weird and often downright disgusting aphrodisiacs? The question becomes how far are you willing to go for a few hours of incredible sex? For some people that answer apparently exists in the realm of a complete lack of limits.
For women whose men would rather watch football all weekend than score themselves, there is ambergris. If you really want to know more about ambergris than you would ever need, read Moby-Dick, but for the purpose of a discussion about aphrodisiacs just realize this: ambergris is produced in the intestines of sperm whales. You just knew there had to be a really good reason to call an animal a sperm whale, didn’t you? Research into ambergris has shown that rats who receive it act like a fifteen year old boy who stumbled into the Hooters dressing room at just the perfect moment. Give a man some ambergris on Saturday morning and you’ll be sore by Monday Night Football.
Although a queen bee probably doesn’t actually need an aphrodisiac, it is worth noting that these buzzing babes can produce up to 2,000 eggs a day. That’s a lot sex no matter how you cut it. Royal Jelly is an active ingredient in this process of profound sexuality in the hive and it is a substance filled with an abundance of nutrients; this is the entire diet of that sexual dynamo the queen bee. Royal Jelly has been available in Asian markets for centuries and is said to produce sheer ecstasy no matter what kind of sex you’re having. There is one caveat however: if you are allergic to bees, you could quite literally screw yourself to death. A nice way to go, for sure, but only when you’re ninety years old.
While for some women many years ago Adam Ant’s music might have been used as some kind of aphrodisiac, the next coming rage in the world of aphrodisiacs may be ants themselves. Using ants in various forms to unleash the flames of passion has been around for centuries in Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, but is only today becoming known in America. There is some scientific reasoning behind this particularly aphrodisiac: ants are loaded with all kinds of energy-producing vitamins and nutrients. Before you rush naked into the backyard to dig into some ant mounds, however, it is vitally important to know that only certain exotic kinds of ants are commonly used, mainly a species of black ant native only to China. The preferred means of ingesting this aphrodisiac is best explained in two words: ant tonic.
