This week on Your Pleasure, Sensuality Consultant Ellen Nicolas Rathbone explores the topic of aphrodisiacs.

Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, lent her name to what we today call aphrodisiacs.

These are foods, techniques and art forms that, when applied, increase our sexual desire, ignite our passion, and can help us to become better lovers.

Intended to amuse and entertain, this path to eroticism has roots in ancient cultures such as Japan, China and India, where once these erotic techniques were limited to harems, the bedrooms of courtesans and the ‘floating world’ of Oriental pleasure houses.  They are the herbs and spices, scents and unguents, recipes and concoctions which lovers the world over have used to increase desire.

At a time when there is increasing interest in herbal remedies from our own folk tradition, it is difficult not to find something useful among all the aphrodisiacs, many of which are a fascinating part of our sexual heritage.
