Woman Holding a Strawberry.

Humans have been looking for just about anything to stimulate sexual desire for as long as we’ve been in existence. Every culture in the world has come up with something they claim will instantly boost libido. Aphrodisiacs, from the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite, are used as an agent to arouse sexual desire and have been found in recorded history for about 60,000 years. Even though the FDA has debunked the idea that a food or drug can activate a strong desire for sex, people still use and recommend many of these long standing aphrodisiacs. In some cases the aphrodisiac does stimulate the body in ways that can help libido, others are completely useless and some are downright deadly. Let’s take a look at the wide variety of ways we’ve tried to feel sexier through chemistry.

A Seductive Shape

Certain aphrodisiacs were thought to work simply because their shape looked like a penis or vulva. Ginseng, which translates to “person root” in Chinese because of its person like shape, was thought of as an aphrodisiac and a cure for sexual dysfunction in men. Tiger penis, deer penis, oysters, abalone, rhinoceros horn, caviar, asparagus, bananas and even roses all have been linked to sexual arousal because of their genitalia shape. Avocados were referred to as “testicle tree” by the Aztecs and thought to have an aphrodisiac effect. Figs, which once opened give the impression of a vulva, are one of the oldest aphrodisiacs. Strawberries are thought to look like nipples and were once given to newlyweds in the French countryside as a cold soup. While all of these aren’t proven to stimulate desire some of them may help to nudge them along. Oysters are high in zinc that is essential for testosterone production and have amino acids that may trigger sex hormones. Abalone has selenium, which is a mood enhancer, and magnesium that helps with the production of sex hormones. Asparagus and bananas also contain nutrients that help with hormone production. In India bananas are symbol of fertility and in Central America the sap of the red banana tree was used as an aphrodisiac drink.

Sexy Bath Time

Beautiful Couple is Taking a Bath

The bath is a great place to get a little dirty while you’re getting squeaky clean.  The bath can be a break from the cold polar vortex, to reconnect after a stressful day or just the only place your kids won’t barge into. There are some super sexy ways to enjoy your bath time, and shower time too. So let’s get that water going so it can be hot and steamy by the time we’re ready to dive in with some of these tips to make your bath time even hotter.

Slippery When Wet

Sex in the shower can be a slippery situation. Even getting into the right position in the tub can feel a little risky in the slip and fall department. You can find handles in many different sizes and configurations that adhere to your bath with a suction base. These are mighty strong as they’re made to take some manhandling. Sportsheets has a great line called, plainly, Sex in the Shower. They have single locking suction handles and single locking suction footrest. The footrest will come in handy when you want to change up positions and that narrow strip between those shallow tub corners gets too small. They even have a dual locking suction handle that has two suction ends if you need something more secure to hold on to. Want to get your kink on safely; they have something for that too. There are suction cup thigh restraints, wrist cuffs, and even a suction cup attached to a collar. They easily attached to any smooth surface. You just flip the locking lever up, press firmly against the wall, then flip lever down to activate suction. With these you can try different positions in the bath or shower with more confidence.
