Which are the most desirable products for increasing libido
ranked the ten most popular aphrodisiacs. Some of them may seem to the Western people extremely strange but they are definitely very popular among some Eastern nations.
Not only the idea sounds crazy but actually the so-called aphrodisiac does not have any sexual powers at all. But the power of many aphrodisiacs relies upon a medieval philosophy. The special shape of the horn is in the bottom of the myth that consuming minced rhino horn can increase libido. In best cases it can give some extra nutrients that give energy, such as phosphorus. In many countries in Asia, including China, the use of rhino horn is illegal.
Spanish fly (cantharid)
This is another aphrodisiac myth. And here we are talking neither for Spain, nor for a fly. Actually it is highly toxic aphrodisiac. The Spanish fly is the ash beetle. It contains a juice similar to a caustic acid called cantharid. After being consumed, when it is removing from the body, it causes a burning feeling and swelling in the urinary tract, which is often wrongly interpreted as sexual stimulation.
Alcohol is the other fake aphrodisiac. It just reduces inhibitions and increases the level of irrationality in people. Although it may help take your clothes off, alcohol has dreadful effect for the erectile function in men.
This aphrodisiac is also not working but it has amazing taste and we can test it from time to time. Chocolate has a lot of phenylethylamin and serotonin, two chemical substances that stimulate areas in brain, which are connected to pleasure. The cacao temptation is similar with sex in this, that it makes you fell good. However, researches have not discovered any connection between chocolate and libido.
