sex toys

These might be such an obvious form of aphrodisiac that we don't see them in that light, but they certainly can't be overlooked.  Sex toys come in many forms — games, videos, magazines/books, pictures, vibrators, just to name a few.  They can be used in conjunction with, or in place of, traditional sex methods.

A couple I know came up with the idea of developing a game to help couples put a bit of fun and variety into their sexual relationships.  The fact that it's been a big success proves the need for honesty in the way we deal with sexual matters that once were considered taboo.  All couples in long-term relationships need help to keep their love-making interesting, not in the first one to two years, but certainly after that, except in very rare cases.  Yet many conventional couples would frown at the suggestion of 'blue' movies, sex toys or pornographic material being introduced into their sex lives.

As a counsellor, I would advise that anything which works is acceptable as long as both parties are willing.  Like the sex therapist I asked, I would be inclined to favour aphrodisiacs that aid sexual fantasy rather than ones believed to make a biological difference.  The exception, of course, would be in cases where there's a medical problem or need for specific intervention.
