I knew that title would catch your attention.
Forbes has a slide show, and apparently these are the aphrodisiacs that work for them:
Barry White tunes
A little skin
A dozen oysters
A few stiff drinks
Herbs and supplements
Here’s my take:
Money – if you are a ho. A vow of celibacy would be preferable to cavorting with the likes of Donald Trump or H. Ross Perot.
Promises, promises – for those in the casting couch?
Barry White tunes – no thanks. Bryn’s Da Man (Yes, we all have our little idiosyncrasies).
Manolo Blahniks – Nice shoes are great but not as aphrodisiacs, and besides Manolos have a negative connotation, being the shoes of choice of the Sex and the City dames.
A few stiff drinks – maybe a drink. No need for a bottle of Jack Daniels.
Herbs and supplements – what about side effects?
The list doesn’t include a nice bouquet of fresh flowers (roses are nice, but other flowers are wonderful, too).
A real aphrodisiac would be a completely private evening of quiet time and undivided attention by the fireplace.
In our busy times, that’s what I’d call a real luxury.
In the meantime, a little music sampler.

You’re not subtle, but you don’t want to be. Fast, loud, and dramatic, you want people to notice you, and then get out of the way. In a world full of sheep, you’re a raging bull.

and here I thought I was a Volvo station wagon type.
