Aphrodisiacs may well be the one thing that crosses all barriers, race, culture, ethnicity, age, making it unanimous: We all want to have better sex. One category of foods that were thought to be aphrodisiacs are foods that resemble genitalia. Eggs and caviar may come to mind, as well as asparagus, celery, and onions. Clams and oysters also lay claim to aphrodisiac qualities because of their shape and texture. Oysters, in fact, are high in zinc -- a nutrient that was lacking in people's diets at one time; eating them could improve a nutritionally deficient diet, thus improving a person's overall health and increasing their sex drive. An herb very commonly associated with love is ginseng. Some say ginseng is an aphrodisiac because it actually looks like the human body. (The word ginseng even means "man root.") Studies have reported sexual response in animals who have been given ginseng, but there is no evidence to date of ginseng having any effect on humansSights, sounds, and scents within your reach are the best precursors for a romp in the hay. Nothing can compare with the sight of your partner's lips parted in a smile, or the sound of those three words, "I love you." Combined with a healthy dose of mind candy (your imagination), you're well on your way to a fabulous night of sexual exploration.
