In my latest story, my character Rosetta comes from a long line of herbal healers/seductresses. What foods could she have used to ensnare Henley?
The goddess Aphrodite came from the sea and so it seemed logical that seafood would get a person in the mood. Mussels and oysters have long been considered aphrodisiacs and now we know that the chemical compound in them releases sex hormones. If someone invites you for dinner and they're serving white wine and mussels, consider yourself warned.
Strawberries have been thought of as a natural aphrodisiac since Roman times. The bright red hue, the heart shape, the lusciousness of the fruit have made it seem a bit sexy. How many movies have had scenes with people sexily eating chocolate-dipped strawberries? In France, some couples eat a cold strawberry soup to increase their libidos for their honeymoons but so far, science has not backed up this claim.
If your intended target fails to comply after oysters, strawberries, and artichokes there is still hope. There is always the greatest aphrodisiac of all time: tequila.
WHEN THE SYNERGY OF TWO AUTHORS COLLIDE, A NEW STORY IS TOLD. WITHOUT RISK, LIFE IS STAGNANT.
