Humanity has obsessed over aphrodisiacs for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, couples ate wine-soaked lily flowers to boost passion. Some aphrodisiacs since then have been somewhat less pleasant and sometimes even dangerous, like cobra blood, sea cucumber, ants, birds’ nests, or the secretions of blister beetles. Some aphrodisiacs have led to the near extinction of priceless animals, such as the tiger and black rhinoceros.
Most aphrodisiacs have been proven useless, but that doesn’t stop mankind’s search for the ultimate love potion. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to boost your libido, energy, and passion without relying on anything dangerous, illegal, disgusting, or just plain stupid. Nature has given us plenty of commonly-known foods that can help.
