Leaf Cutter Ants

Leaf Cutter Ants have normally been given to newlywed couples as gifts in this country for over 500 years, and for a good reason. These little crunchy toasty, nutty buggers have been known to pack a big libido boosting punch for both men and women, alike. They are also high in protein and low in fat, so there’s no guilt in indulging in these tasty little treats before… well… you know.

Tokyo, Japan
Fugu (or blowfish)

Not for the faint of heart, this aphrodisiac is considered the most dangerous of them all. Many people have died from eating Fugu, due to one fish having enough tetrodotoxin to poison you, your Mama, your Mama’s Mama and Mama’s Mama’s Mama!!! But if you go to a reputable restaurant where the chef has been specially trained to handle this poisonous fish, you’ll have an experience second to none! The after effect of eating this delicacy is a tingling sensation that is famous for increasing libido. You can safely indulge in Fugu in Japan, as long as the chef preparing it is specially trained and licensed with the proper technique to handle it.

White Asparagus

In Germany, White Asparagus (Spargel in German) has a cult-like status as a serious aphrodisiac. They’re packed with a lot of nutrients (potassium, vitamins A, B6, C, thiamin, folic acid, and fiber), said to boost the histamine production that is necessary for both men and women to reach orgasm. The only time you can have access to the fresh White Asparagus is from late April to mid-June and expect to pay… and I mean really pay a premium price for this well sought after libido booster! But ok, growing white asparagus does involve a painstaking process, and it must be purchased within 24 hours of maturity to get its full aphrodisiac effect, but hey… what else do you have to spend on, yeah? A small investment in what could be a very hefty return! LoL

Middle East/GCC Countries

Considered the most expensive aphrodisiac, in essence, this is a substance secreted by sperm whales (whale vomit). It’s banned in the USA, due to sperm whales being endangered. But many other countries still buy and sell it for, depending on the size of the piece, tens of thousands of dollars. It’s often added to different foods and in luxury perfumes. Though women have used it in perfumes to heighten pheromone production, it actually has a history in the Middle East of being consumed by men to increase libido and stamina. One tonic recipe is a combination of ambergris, milk, and honey. So if you have the money to spend, it ain’t trickin’ if you got it!

Naples, Italy

The whole concept of the consumption of oysters having aphrodisiac qualities did not begin in the USA, which may surprise some folks. There is actual documented evidence that this practice began in Italy, all the way back in 1 B.C. Research has shown that oysters contain zinc and amino acids that encourage feelings of euphoria, support fertility and ignite the production of sex hormones in men and women. So the next time you and Boo are in Italy, order you a dozen and see why the Italians are considered some of the sexiest people in the world… when in Roma… I mean Naples!

Tywkiwdbi (pronounced Tai-Wiki-Wid-Be)

Tywkiwdbi wine is an alcoholic beverage that includes a whole venomous snake or scorpion in the bottle of rice wine liquor. This is considered the most popular global aphrodisiac among men because it’s not only known for significantly increasing libido, but also for relieving back pain, rheumatism, farsightedness and hair loss. What goes into making this wine is… well… gross, so I won’t go into the details. Just know my husband (at that time… I’m single), and I partook of this libation in Busan, South Korea, and let’s just say a good night turned into a great one!

Bon Appetite Y’all and Happy Sexing!
