Is this the most sexy thing that you can think of – blisters?
Well that’s what Spanish fly relies on to get your sexy time going.
Cantharidin is part of the leg joints of a type of beetle that is crushed up to make the dust that is part of the so called ‘Spanish Fly’. It’s not a fly – and if you apply it to any body part it’s going to hurt.
Or give you a pleasant warming feeling, depending on how much you actually apply. Of course the crushed beetle can be added to drinks, but blister beetles are not only very attractive – they can be deadly, and they’re only renowned for their effect on men.
So gents – don’t even bother to add it to a young lady’s drink – it simply doesn’t work.
Believe it or not Cantharidin has been used to remove warts or even tattoos – it isn’t effective as a sexual stimulant. In men, if taken orally it can irritate the urethra – so you may get a mild sort of tingling in your nether regions as it’s excreted.
In larger doses an erection will result – a long lasting one. The down side is that the use can result in death.
This is why most of the ‘Spanish Fly Romance Helper‘ that you buy only contains very small portion of the actual ingredient. An erection that lasts days is not fun at all and may require medical intervention.
Unless you think that a scalpel and a trip to an emergency room is your idea of a romantic night Spanish Fly (or crushed up beetle bodies) is not for you.
Oh – and it doesn’t work on women – leave it alone and stick to a great meal and being a gentleman.
