Increase Sex Drive with Ginger

Updated on September 30, 2009

Ginger: Simple Spice or Sexual Wonder Food?

Ginger is at the top of the list in history and sympathetic magic as helping to increase lustful yearnings and increase sex drive! It stimulates sexual performance in both men and women, and aids in the feelings of love, lust and attraction. You can find ginger in any grocery store in the produce section in root form, or even buy it in the spice aisle in ground form.

Since as far back as 500 B.C. this spice has been known for many health improving benefits and is considered a miracle food for sexual performance.

Ginger in History:

  • Confucius was never without ginger when he ate.
  • Aviceena, an Arab physician credited ginger with “increasing lustful yearnings.”
  • Pedanius Dioscorides, who wrote wrote De Materia Medica approximately two thousand years ago noted the stimulating effect that ginger had on the male organ.
  • Pliny the Elder, Roman naturalist, scholar, historian, and writer concluded that using ginger was sexually beneficial.
  • The Koran has ginger listed as one of the foods served at the feasts in Paradise.
  • Madame Du Barry, who was an official royal mistress to King Louis, served ginger to all her lovers, including ‘the beloved’ king. It was purported that this practice would drive her men to a state of complete and utter submissiveness.
  • The Portuguese would feed ginger to their slaves to encourage them to increase their sexual activities in order to increase the slave population.
  • In the Melanesian Islands of the South Pacific ginger is employed to gain the affection of a woman.
  • The Kama Sutra mentions Ginger as one of the best to bring success in love through aphrodisiacs, herbs, and spells.

Ginger has a warm, fiery, pungent taste. It also has a warm, sweet, yet pungent aroma which is thought to be stimulating in and of itself. You can find ginger scented bath and body lotions, candles, and aromatherapy items that will really help set the mood. It lends a seductive ambiance to any occasion.

Ginger is used in many different types of dishes and is rich in potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, and Vitamin B6. It increases blood flow throughout the entire circulatory system. It warms the body in a way that mirrors the bodies reaction during sex, which in turn leaves the erogenous zones feeling hypersensitive.

The University of Ibadan in Nigeria tested the effects of ginger on rats in 2002. For eight days they gave the rats water with a ginger infusion and tested their testosterone levels. The experiment resulted in finding that the rats experienced an increase in the weight of the testes, testosterone levels, and testosterone cholesterol levels. All this this equates to significantly effecting the male sex drive in the most positive way!

Whether raw, pickled, or candied, ginger can be enjoyed in a variety of menu options. If you want to experiment with Ginger recipes, try the *Stir Fry Ginger Beef for a main dish, or *Lemon Ginger Cups" for a decadent dessert.

      Since I am the cook in the house, I will now use ginger in nearly every dish I cook. I can hear it now, "This mac and cheese tastes like ginger?" "That's right babe. Wanna roll in the hay?" :)

      :) I can imagine Ginger flavored everything! If it doesn't work in your main dish, just make ginger tea for an after dinner drink.

      I don't need ginger lol (that's so stereotypical lol)-

      no really, I do not. I find that just enjoying it enough is the motivation. Positioning, etc. There are aphrodisiacs and herbal enhancers (which, I guess, I would try if whoever she is asked), but I like chocolate instead :)

      Ginger definitely increases sex drive and I believe it has to do with improving circulatory system than any thing else.

      Ginger is a good aphrodisiac for sure. It is a weird herb though because I get the complete opposite effect from Turmeric which is a related plant. I'm guessing Ginger has some properties that Turmeric does not have.
