A is for Aphrodisiacs

It seems April is Blogging A-Z month!  I’ve decided to give it a whirl since I’ve been slacking on my blog posts recently.  Every day of the month except Sundays.  We’ll see how it goes, and don’t be surprised to see a few letters smooshed together!

A is for Aphrodisiacs.

No really.

Myth and folklore spanning the breadth of human existence is full of stories of love, lust, and copulation.  Where there is a will, there is a way, and anything that might promise to increase desire and performance was worth a try.  Many dubious elixirs have been tried over the years, and while some are no better than a charlatan’s promises for false hope, there are many substances, foods, herbs, and practices that do help promote healthy and vibrant sexuality.

An aphrodisiac is something that arouses or intensifies sexual desire.  A sexual enhancer is something that increases male virility and performance.

I am in the process of writing a new book series called “Veggiality”.  I will be exploring Aphrodisiacs, Nutrition for Vibrant Sexuality, Food Fetishes and more.  I hope you will stay tuned (heh heh , now I bet you want to stay tuned to see what V stands for now, don’t you?)!

In the mean time, here is a list of nutrients that can help you maintain a vibrant and healthy lifestyle and kick up your libido!
