Quite interesting. Have you got any idea if coffee and rhum mix together could also enhance the sex drive. Coffee increases heart rate which increases circulation and rhum increases the body heat... though I am not sure but some people are doing it and they say that its effective. But generally, your hub is very informative. I like it!
