Mustard for Lust's Sake

Updated on March 22, 2010

Stock up on mustard for lustward pursuits!

When you think of mustard, you think of everything from summer cook-outs, to "Can you pass the Grey PouPon?" commercials. But rarely would one think of mustard having anything to do with seduction. Until now that is!

Mustard is one of the oldest and most worldwide popular condiment. Mustard seeds are found in the tombs of ancient pharaohs. They were crushed and mixed with wine by the Romans. In Europe, monks were restricted to eat this pungent spice because it was believed that it would lead them down the path to temptation.

Mustard seeds contain:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Calcium
  • Dietary fiber
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Niacin
  • Phosphorus
  • Protein
  • Selenium
  • Zinc

As you can imagine, all the nutritional components in mustard have many benefits including being antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It is a great idea to include this spice in your cooking as a staple spice.

With all those benefits, there is even more that make this spice a natural aphrodisiac. Simply, it creates a rise in our adrenalin and stimulates the sexual glands thereby increasing desire. Give it a try for yourself! Serve this Barbecue Lentils recipe, or a good old fashioned cook out with mustard at your next romantic picnic and see how it may make sparks fly! Add some gourmet mustards into the regular assortment of condiments for more sophisticated pallets.

Barbecue Lentils

  • 2 1/3 Cups rinsed dry lentils
  • 5 Cups water
  • 1/2 Cup molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce or vegan alternative
  • 16 Ounces Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Onions
  • 1 Crushed Garlic Clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional

Add lentils to water, bring to a boil and then simmer for tender, about a half hour. Mix all other ingredients in a 13x9 inch pan. Add drained lentils and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

      Thank you enterianmentplus! You'll never look at mustard the same way again :) I know since I wrote this hub, I've tried it with honey mustard chicken recipe and sandwiches. I don't know if the mustard is more potent, or if it's the thought of it - but we've been having a real sexy time in our home!

      Hi Don! Aphrodisiacs are controversial, but the World's Healthiest Foods has researched it in regard to nutritional benefits, Dr. Max Lake research came to finding mustard causes “maximal stimulation of the pain fraction of taste.”

      It's fascinating that mustard is an aphrodisiac. Just curious if there's actual research on it and also -- how much mustard is needed to increase sexual desire?! I'm sure it varies widely based on the person.
