Apparently, there are a whole load of foodstuffs out there that have the aphrodisiac quality…
- Red Wine
Now, the above list is by no means exhaustive. There are many more items that are meant to affect our libido in a certain manner, and get us in the mood for lurve, if you know what I mean!
Looking at the items above, I would say I consume pretty much all of them, with the exception of red wine… sorry, can’t do red wine! And chillies, within limit.
If you’d asked me a week ago if I would try oysters, I would have reverted to a child and pretended to throw up! I have only recently started to eat fish regularly, and prawns are the only shellfish I will eat… unshelled of course!
But on the weekend, our whole family went to Loch Fyne, a seafood restaurant, as a treat for a few members of our family’s birthdays. I did shy away from the fish, and ordered a duck main, but I was brave enough to have salt and pepper squid for starters.
You can order oysters here too, singly, or in any numbers up to a dozen, and there are a few varieties from plain, to sweet chilli, horseradish and beetroot, to lime and tequila! My brother in law decided to order a selection and paraded them in front of me. Lil Man wanted to try, but shied away. Lil Princess and my mother in law said “No Thanks” firmly!
Hubby Dearest had a try, and then I got my guts up, and tried a Sweet Chilli one. And it was surprisingly nice! Admittedly it was in batter, I just could not have done that ‘slipping down your throat’ thing! The thought makes me heave!
Did it do anything aphrodisiacally??? Well I am afraid I can’t disclose that!
But if you know of anything that gives you a ‘boost’, Viagra aside, leave a comment below!
