The search for aphrodisiacs is popular all over the world. In India, sprouted beans, drumsticks, onions etc are considered to be mildly aphrodisiacal. My husband claims that the best one he ever encountered is the smell of strings of jasmine flowers..

Anybody else come across any other (possibly strange) aphrodisiacs?

I've heard of both strawberries and chocolate having such effect.

Also, I've heard that foods high in zinc (including olives) is a good one for men.

Wait a minute!
If we eliminate all those, then why do you need these so called aphrodisiacs.

Never heard of sprouted beans or drumstics used as aphrodisiacs...

Onion might just have the reverse effect on your date..if you forget the mint

Though once very long ago heard of snake-oil being used as one...

Chocolate is good for everything so I'm not surprised
