    Ice Cream to Make You Horny 

    viagra ice creamOne of your favourite chilly treats just got very hot! A new gelato called The Sex Pistol, with supposedly the same charge as a dose of Viagra, is selling at fancy London department store Selfridges.

    That’s right. A sexy icecream. And it can’t even claim to be the first ice cream designed to kick start romance. That distinction goes to the famed Heladería Coromoto ice cream shop in Mérida, Venezuela, which launched a blue tinted delight (to match the little blue pill) made with “natural” – and secret – aphrodisiacs.

    The Sex Pistol, which we first heard about on Lemondrop, was created by The Icecreamists in London. The frozen treat not only has ginko and guarana in it to increase blood flow, but it’s also flavored with La Fee Absinthe – highly alcoholic and as Cosmopolitan magazine suggests, probably the key to the whole I-want-to-have-sex promise.

    Lining Up For More

    The concoction has been described as “more Sid and Nancy than Ben and Jerry” and has predictably attracted unstoppable publicity for the “Pop Up Icecream Boutique” which will only be open in its subterranean Selfridge’s  location until November.

    London media report the Sex Pistol and similar delights have everyone from tattooed hipsters to 85-year-old grandmas lining up for more.

    World Record Flavours

    Its Venezuelan competitor is famous for a multi-year streak in the Guinness World Book of Records for the most ice cream flavours: almost 900 at the most recent count (though only a paltry 70 or 80 are available on any given day). Besides Viagra, you might find the Coke and Diet Coke flavours, chile pepper, and even tuna.

    How It Tastes: The Viagra Ice: “It may be hard to taste anything beyond the vivid aqua color, meant to evoke the little blue pill; the specific main ingredients are a secret, but are reportedly “natural” plant aphrodisiacs.” (Travel and Leisure)

    The Sex Pistol: “Forget traditional vanilla, this will get your blood pumping” (The London Paper) “We want one” (Perez Hilton) “Electric” (The Daily Telegraph.)

    Sex Boosting Flavours
    The “warm up” though, it turns out you don’t have to buy a specialty flavour — standbys vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and pistachios all have supposed aphrodisiac powers, reports Travel and Leisure magazine in a story on the world’s strangest ice cream. Other alleged sex-drive-boosting flavors include pomegranate, honey, alcohol, avocado, cinnamon buns, licorice, lavender, chili and pumpkin pie, all of which are available as ice cream.

    The ultimate dessert for that champagne and lobster dinner? Champagne sorbet with, um, lobster ice cream (really).

    Hot Herbs for Valentines 

    The quest for the perfect aphrodisiac is as long as human history, and yet many sex experts – Dr Ruth among them – still say the most important sex organ is located between the ears – as in “it’s all in your mind.”

    Chocolate, oysters, avocado and honey have all had their place as romance boosters in 5000 years of folklore, although 20 years ago the FDA poured a cold shower on the whole idea of libido lifters as “unscientific.”

    However as the baby boomers reach 60 and notice things ain’t what they used to be in the bedroom, many are discovering that centuries of human experience can’t be dismissed as simple “anecdote”. Natural enhancement has been around since man walked upright, and natural sex boosters are coming out of the closet.

    So here’s our pick of A Lover’s Dozen of Sex Boosting Herbs to add an extra spark to Valentines Day for men and women. For info on where you can find health products containing some of these herbs, go to http://www.herbalignite.com.

    Tribulus Terrestris

    A testosterone enhancer from Europe which works for both men and women (in women it helps with menopause symptoms). Lifts performance and libido.

    Damiana

    South America shrub induces a testosterone effect and was used by the ancient Mayans as an aphrodisiac drink. Scientific effects recorded over 100 years ago.

    Guarana

    A stimulant also known as Brazilian cocoa and a national beverage there. Guarana increases energy and libido, helps with weight loss, soothes nerves and fights free radicals.

    Ginseng

    Used by North American Indians as a general tonic to give extra energy and strength. (Daniel Boone used to pick wild ginseng and sell it in New York.) Widely used to improve overall energy and vitality, particularly during times of fatigue or stress. Beneficial for diabetics as studies show it normalizes glucose levels after meals.

    Gingko Biloba

    Counters impotence. Ultrasound examinations of 60 impotent men who took ginkgo biloba herb showed improved penile blood circulation after six weeks. After six months, 50% of the patients had regained potency. Many other benefits including increases blood flow to the brain, reduces risk of heart attacks and stroke. Good for treating complications from diabetes, particularly nerve damage and eye problems. Ginko biloba may put the pep back lost as a result of taking anti-depressants.

    Horny Goat Weed Herb

    A performance enhancer and a libido and energy booster for both men and women.

    Saw Palmetto

    Excellent herb for prostate health, sexual functioning and desire. Shrinks the prostate, relieves the major symptoms of enlarged prostate – benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

    For Women

    Tong Kat Ali

    Also called Long Jack, an Asian forest extract with consistent performance boosting properties. Just watch out for insomnia as a possible side effect, so perhaps take it in the morning for good effects later in the day.

    Black Cohosh

    Popular as a natural alternative treatment for women’s menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flushes.

    Chaste Tree Berry

    Also known as Vitex, the Chaste berry well known since ancient times for treating “womens problems”. It is mentioned in Homer’s 6th century BC epic the Iliad and was known to “The Father of Medicine” Hippocrates in the 4th century. Chaste berries are used in treating PMS and menopause.

    Dong Quai

    Also known as Chinese angelica (and not related to the European Angelica) Dong is considered the ultimate, all-purpose woman’s tonic herb. It is used for almost every gynecological complaint from regulating the menstrual cycle to treating menopausal symptoms caused by hormonal changes, including dryness and hot flushes.

    Wild Yam

    Has progesterone-favourable effects on the body, because it contains a compound from which progesterone is made. Wild Yam extract helps regulate the estrogen /progesterone ratio, normalizing imbalance. Good for menopausal problems such as sleeplessness, hot flushes and vaginal dryness and for menstrual cramps. Topically applied progesterone creams can help with sexual health.

    The pioneer in the use of natural progesterone was Dr John Lee, who investigated natural progesterone in his book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause – The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone. Dr Lee coined the term “estrogen dominance” and was one of the first to show that synthetic hormones did not do what was claimed and could be harmful to health. His book lists recommended creams of guaranteed quality. Although Dr Lee died in 2003, his work is continued on his official website at John Lee MD (http://www.johnleemd.com/)
