the aphrodisiac history of ginger
Envelop yourself in the heat of this exotic, Eastern flavoring. Ginger has been used for centuries as a highly effective aid to digestion. But its classification as a natural aphrodisiac comes largely from its ability to increase circulation. Served pickled, candied or in the raw, ginger increases sensitivity in the erogenous zones. Ginger will also make the tongue tingle and lips swell with its tingling effect.
French legend Madame du Barry made a practice of serving ginger to her lovers. It was said to drive all, including her most famous lover, Louis XV, to a state of complete and utter submissiveness.
