SINFUL SATURDAY: Weird Aphrodisiacs from Around the World

No matter where you go in the world, people are looking for ways to spice up their sex life. Many aphrodisiacs have no scientific basis behind them, but here are some interesting (ie: WEIRD) ones from around the globe.

Eastern Asia—Ground rhino horns
Supposedly a cure for erectile dysfunction

Chinese, Egyptians, Hindus—Licorice
Increases sexual arousal and stamina

Indonesia and Malaysia—Bat meat
Often served whole to spice up the sex life. It probably tastes like chicken

India and Nepal—Rhinoceros urine
To increase sexual desire and vitality

Columbia—Big-bottomed ants
Often given to newly-married couples to spice up the wedding night.

Asia—Snake blood
A potent sex enhancer

Scandinavia--Reindeer antlers
To make you horny

From the Romans and Greeks—Aniseed
To increase your desire

China—Snake meat
Eaten, will recharge the sexual batteries

The avocado tree was known as ahuacuatl, or "testicle tree.” Thought to have passion-inducing properties

Cambodia—Deep-fried tarantula
To help a man feel frisky “down there.”

The phallic-looking veggie supposedly stirs the loins, so to speak.

Becca Simone writes erotic romance for The Wild Rose Press. Personally, she would rather go sexless than eat deep-fried tarantula or a whole bat with eyes. Becca's Halloween story, Midnight Treat, is available now. You can learn more about her and her writing at her website.

Becca, yeah, forget the deep-fried tarantula and the bats... but, hey, the licorice root is great. I use it all the time for other health reasons. It's great for your adrenals.

Love the list. But I think I might need therapy regarding the deep fried tarantula... my father-in-law ate that when he was on a mission trip...didn't need certain thoughts put into my head. LOL
