List Of Natural Sex Aphrodisiacs

Aphrodisiacs are mentioned in countless volumes of the world’s sacred texts – ancient narratives are filled with glowing accounts of aphrodisiac foods and potions. By the time of the golden age of Greece, their use was fairly commonplace.

The Romans were also intimately familiar with the art of culinary seduction and the use of oils and perfumes.

Aphrodisiac lore passed from the Roman to the early Christian era, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and to modern times.
