Honey, sweet anguish
Legend has it that Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, entertained her lovers and awakened in them an erotic sense of desire pooring a fine paste of honey with crushed almonds on their private parts, which afterwards was enjoyed with great pleasure and satisfaction. The aphrodisiacs, substances that stimulate sexual apetite or facilitate intercourse, are present in every culture.
Honey, is a thick solution, sweet and oversaturated with sugar, produced by bees to feed their larves and is additionally intended to assure survival throughout the winter.
Thousands of flowers are being visited by bees in order to produce one single gram of honey, and its reputation as an aphrodisiac is grand: newly weds go on a "honeymoon", this word comes from the ancient custom of gifting pitchers full of honey in order to allow for the first acts of love to be crowned with success.
Honey contains lots of vitamin B and C which stimulate the production of sexual hormones and it has an energetic value of 3.259 cal/Kg. It is comercialized in its original panels or centrifuged and sold as extracted honey. Furthermore the product is sold in form of honeycomb pieces emerged in liquid syrup. For thousand of years honey was the only sweetener known to mankind. The Royal Jelly which is a subproduct of honey is also known to be a general stimulant including for the genital area, which may delay a bit to take effect, but the effects are prolonged and assured... Going on a honeymoon was not a foolish expression at all.
It is a food of high energetic value for its richness in vitamins and minerals. Its properties like conforting the passionates have been wellknown among the most advantageous since antiquity. The effect is most potent when the product is pure, since heating to make it more liquid and soft can harm some of the aphrodisiac properties.
