Natural Aphrodisiacs

  • Wasabi (horseradish): While some people believe that sushi has aphrodisiacal effects all on its own, my Japanese friends let me in on a little secret. Apparently, that green stuff that comes with it (wasabi, or horseradish) is what'll really get your twig and berries ripe and ready. So the next time you go out for sushi, ask for some extra wasabi; it's a kick and will make your eyes tear, but you can make your gal's eyes tear when you take her home and show her Wasaaaaaaabi.
  • Caviar: That's right; fish eggs contain a large amount of beneficial vitamins. They are rich in phosphorus and are very nourishing to nerve cells. Their apparent aphrodisiacal powers are reinforced by vodka. So get yourself into Absolut shape for the night.
  • Divine Drugs

    • Ginseng: The word ginseng means "man root." So it's likely that ginseng gained its popularity as a sexually enhancing herb via its similarity to the male, um, organ. While it is true that the root has a mild stimulating effect, like caffeine, there is no solid evidence that ginseng has an effect on human sexuality. But what the heck — increase your energy, and your sex life will follow suit.
    • Yohimbine: Taken from the bark of an African tree, yohimbine is believed to work by stimulating the nerve centers in the spine that control erection. Although even the FDA found its studies on animals to be positive, there is still no scientific proof that yohimbine works on human beings. But some gentlemen swear by yohimbine, and like I always say: If it's good for the goose, then slip on a condom and give it to the gander.
