Aphrodisiacs To Stimulate Your Senses
For many centuries' couples have tried to bring pleasure to their partners by using aphrodisiacs. In Greek mythology, an aphrodisiac was a festival, which was celebrated throughout Greece where Aphrodite (the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty) was worshipped through sexual intercourse with her priestesses (women who represented the goddess). This was not considered prostitution, but just one of the many ways of worshiping Aphrodite.
There are parallels of Aphrodite in many of the ancient civilizations. The Romans, for example, called her Venus and Cupid was her messenger. Throughout time, however, the word aphrodisiac has come to describe any food, drug, potion, or other agent that arouses sexual desire.
Aphrodisiacs come in various shapes, sizes and entities. Gems, for example, have been used for their metaphysical aphrodisiac properties, while various foods and drugs are consumed for their reputed aphrodisiac properties.
These days, Aphrodisiacs are big business. Many herbs are now combined to create commercial preparations, which can be found "over the counter" at drug and health stores. However, going out and buying "off the shelf" formulas are not the only way to use aphrodisiacs.
Many herbs and foods with aphrodisiac properties can also be used when cooking and preparing everyday food or teas. The power of aphrodisiacs, however, is not to be underestimated. So, take careful precautions by asking questions or discussing any concerns with your pharmacist or doctor.
