Today is National Apricot Day and we never pass up an opportunity make your sex life better with food. If you are currently eating healthily- here is an incentive to keep going. And if you're not- you may wish to start if it means good things for your physical relationship.
The world apricot is actually a derivative of the aptly named ‘apricock’ and they were often served as an aphrodisiac by both people in the court of James I and by Australian aboriginals so you may wish to start having them for dessert after your evening meal.
The flesh of the fruit was actually mashed up and spread over a man or woman’s erogenous zones as a pre-sex perfume, which is less calorific than whipped cream or chocolate body paint if you're trying to watch your weight.
Shakespeare handed out apricots as an aphrodisiac in his play A Midsummer Night’s Dream; “Feed him with apricots and dewberries…And for night-tapers crop their waxen thighs, and light them at the fiery glow-worm’s eyes…”
In China, apricots are called ‘moons of the faithful’ as they are thought to enhance a women’s fertility.
Apricots are bursting with Vitamin E, also known as the ‘sex vitamin’ as it boosts sex drive and fertility and they also contain abscisic acid (B-17) which sustains the vital sexual hormones.
So if you spread, massage, soak in, sniff, cook or eat them raw - whatever you choose- make sure you are keeping your ‘apricock’ happy.
