What you need to know about aphrodisiacs

Modern science recognizes only some substances with aphrodisiac properties. One of these is the Spanish fly. This contains an alkaloid called kantharidini a caustic material which, when used in controlled amounts, dilates blood vessels causing swelling (prolonged erections in men).
