Sex is an eternal theme for men. Heroes have suffered from kidney deficiency since ancient times. The root of all aphrodisiac recipes can be found from Teacher Freud - the castration anxiety of male animals.
A few years ago, in an interview, I first met Marka. With a mindset of learning and research, I asked the chef about the origin and efficacy of this ingredient. The chef who has studied Tonic Diet blushed and told me eight words: nourishing yin and tonifying kidney, regulating yin and yang. Then, Maka was dubbed "plant Viagra" and "South American ginseng" by the market and media, and was once fried to tens of thousands of yuan per kilogram. Only then did I understand why the chef blushed when he mentioned the efficacy of Maka.
However, there is no absolute truth in the world. Some experts have confirmed that Maka is just a common food often used by South American people to feed livestock and cook. Its nutritional value is almost equal to that of radish, and there is no clinically proven "magical effect". Therefore, it was pulled off the altar, and the price of tens of thousands of yuan has also returned to the price of cabbage, which has been rarely seen on the table in the past two years.
A huge army of "Zhuang Yang" food ingredients
"The Maka from Peru ultimately did not receive the recognition of the Chinese people and was unable to rank among the first echelons of Chinese aphrodisiac recipes. However, on the Chinese dining table, there are countless ingredients entrusted with a certain" magical effect ", which has never been lacking since ancient times.".
Turning to the list of "aphrodisiac foods", in addition to scallions, chili peppers, and leeks, there are also beef and sheep whip, tiger whip, beef and sheep treasure, kidney, dog meat, donkey meat, loach, pigeon meat, snake meat, oysters, and other Chinese herbs that are homologous to medicine and food, such as cistanche deserticola, eucommia, and wolfberry.
In an informal online survey, 40% of respondents believe that certain foods do have the effect of improving sexual desire and function. However, more experts and clinical research results show that the efficacy of aphrodisiac foods is more of a psychological comfort.
The reason why chives, known as "aphrodisiac herbs", are considered to be aphrodisiac is because they contain a substance called zinc, but the zinc content in 100 grams of chives is only about 0.43 milligrams, which is not comparable to even mushrooms (8.6 milligrams per 100 grams); Another ingredient that is considered a sacred aphrodisiac because it is rich in zinc is oyster, which has a much higher zinc content than leeks and mushrooms.
Zinc plays an important role in gonadal health. Zinc deficiency can cause growth retardation in children, resulting in short stature and male developmental disorders. However, there is currently no evidence that zinc intake can improve male sexual ability; The main nutrients provided by animal organs known as "man's gas stations", such as kidneys, are protein and fat, which cannot treat kidney deficiency. Moreover, most of these foods are high in fat and cholesterol, so eating more has no benefit; As for foods such as "shape reinforcing" animal whips, cattle and sheep treasures, there may be a little more male hormones than other organs, but eating them does not work, because after heating and digestion of gastric juice, these hormones are basically gone
The Magic of Group Suggestion
If aphrodisiac ingredients don't have much effect, what about those health products that have been snapped up with heavy money? In fact, the reason why some health products really work is because Viagra is added to them. In a recent law enforcement inspection conducted by the State Food and Drug Administration, it was found that 51 enterprises have explicitly or implicitly added chemical substances such as sildenafil to the product names, labels, and labels of 69 types of health alcohol and formulated alcohol, while in fact, these products have been secretly and illegally added. Sildenafil is the drug Vigara, commonly known as "Viagra.".
In Ireland, there is a small town called Ringaskiddy, because everything in the town has changed since the American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer built its famous product Vigara production plant here. People say that the air in a small town is filled with the smell of "love", which strikes people's hearts. Even cats, dogs, and dogs have become extremely energetic. The Viagra factory has brought many benefits, not only promoting the population growth of the town, driving economic development, but also attracting many curious people to visit the town, developing the tourism industry.
But in fact, a spokesman for Pfizer believes that all this is an illusion among residents that their products are not yet as powerful as that. "Our drug production process is very responsible and strictly complies with relevant procedures," he said, which is actually everyone's psychological effect. "Take the air as an example, our factory does not have a chimney at all..." In short, "there is no emission of aphrodisiac substances."
In psychology, there is a method of communication called group suggestion, which is used to indirectly signal people to accept a certain point of view or engage in a certain behavior, while the suggestion in collective behavior is closer to hypnosis. Participants in collective behavior are usually in a state of excitement, which makes them lose their ability to analyze and criticize the surrounding information, manifested as blind faith and blind obedience.
Unavoidable castration anxiety
Why are men all over the world flocking to aphrodisiac food?
Oxford University graduate writer Samoff wrote a book called "What Men Think Except Sex," with over 200 pages of white paper. "They filled up my book to prove me wrong," said Semoff. "But I wonder how many people's minds will jump to the topic of sex right after the course is over."
Sex is an eternal theme for men. Heroes have suffered from kidney deficiency since ancient times. Behind all aphrodisiac recipes, one can find the root cause from Teacher Freud - the castration anxiety of male animals. Almost every boy has been intimidated into "cutting off your little JJ" as a child. Throughout their lives, they cannot escape such castration anxiety. Men who succeed in their careers also need to gain a different sense of achievement in the process of conquering the opposite sex. The three words they are most afraid of hearing are "you can't".
To be fair, men are afraid of "not being able" and women are also afraid of "aging". The root cause of all this is the fear of losing their sexual attraction. Therefore, most men in the world are passionate about aphrodisiac recipes, while women are seeking various secret recipes for nourishing yin and tonifying the kidney.
"Eating abalone for women is considered to be 'supplementing the shape with the shape'."; The snow clam, which is believed to extend the "female freshness period", is expensive and has the effect of "nourishing essence, nourishing yin, and moistening the lungs." In fact, it is the nutrient frog oil in the fallopian tubes of northeast female forest frogs. It is rich in estrogen and collagen, which is good for the skin, but long-term use can increase the risk of cancer; Schopenhauer also pointed out that the flowers that women like are just the genitals of plants.
From an anthropological perspective, eating aphrodisiac foods to enhance one's sexual attractiveness is just an instinctive response made by humans to reproduce for the next generation, and there is nothing wrong with their appetite for sex. Even though most of these aphrodisiac foods serve as psychological comfort, people are willing to believe in their certain abilities and efficacy, and after eating them, encouraging themselves mentally can indeed improve the happiness index between the sexes. Why not? What's more, if there is no aphrodisiac recipe and no desire kitchen, the restaurant menu may be half of the products offline, which is also a pity.
