Aphrodisiacs are an Art Form
Aphrodisiacs have been touted throughout history as
substances thought to enhance or promote romantic desire and sexual
performance. The name Aphrodisia comes
from Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of sensuality. The use of aphrodisiacs appear in every
culture around the world from the Tibetan ginseng to the African Yohimbe.
There is a great deal of controversy surrounding the
use of aphrodisiacs as science can't begin to see the correlation between romance
and sensual stimuli. Controversy aside, if you take a realistic look at the
results of certain substances you will see how those substances can enhance and
heighten your all ready established romantic or sensual attraction.
Chocolate induces "feel good" chemicals that
are released in the brain, increasing a happy mood. Of course you are going to feel sexier when
you feel good. Spicy foods raise your
blood pressure and create heat which is also excellent sexual enhancement
inducers. You get the idea. Certain ingredients create certain enhancing
effects and that can be a powerful tool when it comes to matters of creating,
sustaining, and deepening romantic pursuits!
I must mention that nothing replaces pursuing a
healthy lifestyle of rest, exercise, and eating right for the highest
vitality. This book assumes you all
ready know that good health is paramount for a healthy sensual life. With that said we can begin to look at
additional enhancements for the pleasure of yourself and your lover(s).
The true art form of using aphrodisiacs is to encompass all your senses. Chocolate covered strawberries are a wonderful aphrodisiac on there own, but add sensual smelling candles, soft music, and a comfortably heated environment and your on the way to total seduction!
