Avocados for Sensual Pleasure

Updated on December 16, 2009

The avocado is a sensuous, textured fruit that dates back to about 200 B.C. when the Mayans and Aztecs used it for sexual enhancement. The Aztecs called it "Ahucatl", meaning testicle tree. The paired fruit on the avocado trees resembles testicles. This fruit was considered so sexy that Catholic priests forbade their parishioners to use them.

The avocado leads all other fruits in beta carotene It contains more protein, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin K per ounce than any other fruit making the perfect pre-sex food!

To pick the best avocados, go for weight with unblemished and unbroken skin. Squeeze it gently to test for ripeness. A ripe one should yield lightly without leaving a dent. If it does leave a dent it means it’s too ripe and will have blackened flesh that is unusable. Ripe avocados can be kept in the refrigerator for 4 or 5 days, but will begin to discolor and lose their flavor if kept longer. Unripe avocados should not be refrigerated because they will never ripen properly.

Try serving guacamole with chips for an appetizer or snack. Just mash two avocados and mix with about 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa for a quick delicious guacamole dip. Or, for a sensual dessert, try Honey Dripped Avocado slices.

Honey Dripped Mango and Avocado Slices
Two of each large chilled seeded and peeled avocados and mangos
Cayenne Pepper and salt to taste
3/4 Cup Greek Style Plain Yogurt
Juice of two large limes
1/4 cup honey
mint sprigs for garnish
Alternate slices of avocado and mango on a serving dish. Sprinkle with Cayenne Pepper and salt. Set Aside. Whisk yogurt, lime juice, and honey in a separate bowl and drizzle over fruit. Add mint garnish and serve immediately.
