News Flash: Aphrodisiacs Won't Make You Rip Shirts Open
How sexy can an oyster really be? Can you really be turned on by slurping down a slimy little ball while giggling with your significant other? You tell me.
Maybe it’s because I don’t like oysters or that I only really eat chocolate when I’m sad (and certainly not horny), but these foods that are defined as aphrodisiacs just don’t seem that sexy to eat.
And I guess you only really eat aphrodisiacs when you’re having a hard time in the bedroom, but Hollywood often depicts a couple that has no problem with their libido, licking away at those strawberries. I can’t be the only one who thought that aphrodisiacs were just another way to start the night off.
It never occured to me that people might use these things if they were having issues with their significant other. Anything other than sex itself, to me, was just something a couple in a healthy relationship used to turn up the heat. Hollywood tends to depict aphrodisiacs as a way to help someone who was just a little down and not really in the mood.
Little did I know these little magic makers are meant for people with low libidos. Like they can count on one hand the amount of times they get in the mood in one month. I know I can’t be the only one that thought these magical ingredients were supposed to be a miracle worker. Well, I’m about to crush your dreams babes, because turns out aphrodisiacs do next to nothing.
Sure oysters are high in zinc which is supposed to be good for testosterone production in men, and sex dust is good for an energy boost, but they don’t make you want to rip open someone’s shirt with your teeth. Sorry girl, but you shouldn’t wait for an aphrodisiac to tell you to do that! Just go get ‘em.
And, while eating a small amount of dark chocolate is good for your cardiovascular system, studies show that it has no effect on a woman’s sexual functions. For the most part, scientists just think that aphrodisiacs work because we expect them to. It’s all a placebo effect. It’s kind of like taking the sugar pill as your birth control. It doesn’t do anything, but you’re convincing your body otherwise.
Anyway, the point of aphrodisiacs is to give you some health benefits, or to help you get a boost of energy if you do have a low libido….. or if you really, really need to spice it up in the bedroom. If you don’t have a problem though, I don’t suggest aphrodisiacs to get you anywhere.
