Natural Aphrodisiacs - The World of Aphrodite and Its ImmortalityThe world of Greece was not always a kind one to Aphrodite, as the Roman world was notalways kind to Venus. Goddess of the Greek and Roman mythology are associated with love,beauty, lust and reproduction. Aphrodite rose from sea fully grown, and while she is associatedwith love, she had little for her fellow gods or humans. She was married to Hephaestus, the godof fire and smiting, and she was eternally unfaithful to him. All of this does not paint a beautifulpicture of a vain, uncaring and faithless woman of great beauty. While love was her first realmof power, she showed little. Thus, in the literature she is more associated with lust and love andbeauty or reproduction.Lending her name to the word aphrodisiacs comes directly in line with this propensity andassociation. Natural aphrodisiacs have long been for the creation of lust with little concern forlove and beauty. Literature has attempted to change this and the marketing world of thetwentieth century forced a different view on the buying public.As her priestesses were forced into ongoing prostitution with little hope beyond the temple life,and the use of natural aphrodisiacs seems to have arisen from this role. For centuries naturalaphrodisiacs have been touted for their effectiveness and include ginkgo biloba, ginseng,damiana, artichokes, strawberries, oysters, rhinoceros horn, tiger penis and chocolate. Whilethe rhinoceros horn and tiger penis are illegal to obtain, the remainder of the aphrodisiacs areeasily accessible in the modern world.Different Natural Aphrodisiacs And Their Effects
