Libido help. Help!

Perusing the Huggies forum yesterday, I came across something called horny goat weed.

And it is what it sounds like - an aphrodisiac. There's hope for the boy yet.

Apparently the Chinese have been using it for thousands of years, for mojo-related purposes. And look how many Chinese there are in the world.

I'm a little surprised that the boy hasn't been slipping it into my cuppa every evening (or, if he has, it mustn't be working). Perhaps he just doesn't want to risk getting blood and guts all over the duvet (side effects include dizziness, vomiting, dry mouth, thirst and nosebleed).

Horny goat weed on the huggies forum? What the?

Cathi said...

I'm pretty sure I saw this in, of all places, Thorndon New World. It was a mainstream place, anyway :) and something of a shock to find it there. I don't know if it works though, and does it work on women as well? I thought it was a man thing.

the editter: it's for, y'know, post-partum libido-loss...i.e.women on the forum complaining they just aren't in the mood any more now that they have littlies...

cathi: I don't see why it shouldn't work on women too - viagra does - but perhaps men are more likely to seek it?

hey whatever works. I guess.

I need horny elephant weed

angela: I read in a blog somewhere that what might work is telling your hubby that there's nothing sexier than the sight of a man cooking dinner, doing the dishes and putting the kids to bed ;-)

avery's mom: I thought you'd be the last person to need help - seeing as you've already got bubs # 2 on the way!

They sell that stuff in health food stores here in the States. But to me it just looks dangerous.

Violet said...

Neil: more or less dangerous than viagra?

glomgold said...

Yeah, why would that stuff be on the Huggies forum?
I gave some ridiculous West Indian drinks to a friend as a gag gift, and I'm pretty sure they contained that stuff along with a bunch of other ingredients I've never heard of in my life.

Sexual confidence has to be sensed rather than seen. The ability to please women sexually is not something you can just talk about. It has to come from you knowing you’ve got what it takes. If you know you’ve got it, she will too, even if it’s totally subconscious. This is the strongest pull you can have on a woman. And the best part is you don’t have to say a thing, it just flows out of you! http://www.viagrathunder.com
