Make Your Sex Life Sizzle with Cayenne

Updated on June 8, 2009

The Cayenne is a red hot chili pepper, also known as capsicum. The origin of the word Capsicum is somewhat a mystery. It's assumed to be derived from the Greek word "kapto", which means to bite. True to it's name, Capsicum, or Cayenne has a hot, sharp bite to it.

It's a little known fact that this pepper is actually a berry. Kind of like how the tomato is a fruit and not a vegetable as many call it. It's thought that is was called a pepper by the Spanish Explorers and the name stuck. This devilish red delicacy was first used by Native Americans that were located south of the Mexican boarder as early as 700 B.C. The mixture of chocolate and these lusciously hot red berries (Peppers) were reserved strictly for the pleasure of Aztec Royalty. It was introduced to Europe by Christopher Columbus as the Guinea Pepper. Regardless of it's name, the one thing that stands true is it's a serious aphrodisiac!

Cayenne is so medicinally powerful that it's one of the few spices to show up in the American Illustrated Medical Dictionary, the Merck Manual and Materia Medica. They have it named a rubefacient, local stimulant, counter-irritant, gastric stimulant, and diaphoretic. As a local stimulant, it's found in many sexual enhancement supplements. Don't run out to the drugstore just yet though because you can get the same benefits by using cayenne in your cooking, perhaps even more.

Sexual Benefits of Cayenne:

  • Dilates blood vessels allowing increased blood flow throughout the body, especially the major organs.
  • Increases heart action but does not raise blood pressure.
  • Stimulates tissue growth and regeneration making the sexual organs stronger and more efficient for men and women.
  • Aids in longer lasting erections, stronger ejaculations and more intense orgasms.
  • Promotes all the secreting organs in men and women.
  • High levels of vitamins A, B, C, G, iron, and calcium. It has magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, and potassium.

The erotic effects of Cayenne is most effective shortly after consumption while the effects of the heat and increased circulation are beginning. Plan to serve it shortly before you begin your seduction for the best results. You'll find that cayenne is hot in every way. The more you can stand, the better. Make sure how much your partner can stand too though or the heat might ruin the mood instead of heat it up.

One of the most successful seductive recipes for cayenne combines with some other very potent aphrodisiacs. Try it if you dare!
