Chocolate Continued
Cacao
Montezuma (a famous Aztec king) would have snow brought from the mountain tops and would
pour chocolate over it
The spaniard spread the word that cacao was an aphrodisiac because Montezuma consumed a lot
of it to keep all of his mistresses happy
In 1519, ships were sent to Europe with cacao
Today, chocolate is a symbol of courtship
Valentine’s Day
The catholic church recognizes at least 3 different saints named Valentine, all were martyred
Legend #1
Valentine was a priest living in Rome in the 3rd century
Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers and outlawed marriage
for young men in his troops
Valentine deified Claudius and performed marriages for young lovers in secret
Legend #2
Valentine, a Roman was killed for refusing to give up Christianity
He died on February 14, 269 AD, the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries
He fell in love with the jailer’s daughter while he was waiting to be put to death
On february 14, he sent her a love note and signed it “From your valentine”
In 1861, Richard Cadbury created the first known heart-shaped candy box for Valentine’s Day
In 1923, Frank Mars invents the Milky Way chocolate bar in the Twin Cities
During World War II, nearly all the chocolates produced in the US is earmarked for the military
Other tasty aphrodisiacs:
Honey: the nectar of aphrodite, honey is used to make sensual sweets, men sometimes refer to a
women’s secretion as “sweet as honey”
Tea and coffee: stimulating because of the caffeine, but probably not an aphrodisiac unless it
keeps you awake for night games
Alcohol: often connected with the dating game or wedding rituals
Wine, champagne, cognac, brandy
Henry IV of France made cognac and brandy stylish as an aphrodisiac, a glass after
dinner or before bed
Beef: the Italians believe that raw meat is erotic, cut in very fine slices, called capaccio
Goat: the ram symbolizes male sexual energy
Testicles: organs of certain animals have been believed to have eroticc properties. Men eat them,
women usually don’t, in the US testes are called Rocky Mountain oysters
Shrimp, prawns, crab and lobsters: very tasty, very aphrodisiac, boil and dip, supposed to
stimulate lovemaking
Oysters: “queens of aphrodisiacs”, eat them raw and slurped down
In the game of erotic play and food, the shapes most desired are phallic and rounded, those that
are fleshy, with moist texture, those with sensual colors of skin or pungent smells
Banana: associated with erotic energy and its a phallic symbol
Apple: the symbol of temptation, garden of Eden, it is also the symbolic fruit of Aphrodite, the
Goddess of Love
Almond: is associated with passion and fertility and is considered the most sensual component of
Arabic pastry making, italians use dit as a tonic for love
Cherry: Jocks used to boast of “popping a cherry”
