Throughout the millenia, different cultures have believed in the power of aphrodisiacs to stimulate the senses inspire feelings of desire.
The word aphrodisiac is Greek in origin, derived from the name of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. Some ancient aphrodisiacs include rhino horn, arsenic and hemlock!
While there is no scientific evidence to show a link between certain foods being a pre cursor to a night of mad passionate sex, there are some substances in food that make you think you are feeling more sensuous; zinc in oysters, Vitamin C in oranges, phenylethylamine found in varying degrees in chocolate & alcohol, and asparagus contains Vitamin E. Want to heat things up a bit more? Ironically fire hot chilli pepper is believed to do just that, by releasing feel good endorphins into the brain!
