Apricots never looked so sexy!

Apricots never looked so sexy!

Today is National Apricot Day and we never pass up an opportunity make your sex life better with food. If you are currently eating healthily- here is an incentive to keep going. And if you're not- you may wish to start if it means good things for your physical relationship.    

The world apricot is actually a derivative of the aptly named ‘apricock’ and they were often served as an aphrodisiac by both people in the court of James I and by Australian aboriginals so you may wish to start having them for dessert after your evening meal.

The flesh of the fruit was actually mashed up and spread over a man or woman’s erogenous zones as a pre-sex perfume, which is less calorific than whipped cream or chocolate body paint if you're trying to watch your weight.

Shakespeare handed out apricots as an aphrodisiac in his play A Midsummer Night’s Dream; “Feed him with apricots and dewberries…And for night-tapers crop their waxen thighs, and light them at the fiery glow-worm’s eyes…”

In China, apricots are called ‘moons of the faithful’ as they are thought to enhance a women’s fertility.

Apricots are bursting with Vitamin E, also known as the ‘sex vitamin’ as it boosts sex drive and fertility and they also contain abscisic acid (B-17) which sustains the vital sexual hormones.   

So if you spread, massage, soak in, sniff, cook or eat them raw - whatever you choose- make sure you are keeping your ‘apricock’ happy.
