5 Surprisingly Effective All-Natural Aphrodisiacs (That You Probably Have in Your Kitchen)


Surprisingly Sexy Ingredient #1: Cornstarch

The first item on this list isn't something you eat, it's about the feel of the cornstarch on your body (half- to full-nude body preferred). Just the initial sensation of cornstarch dropping on the skin mimics the sensation of liquid silk. Try a few drops on yourself and you'll see what I mean. Just a few sprinkles of this cool, tingly powder elixir onto the skin and you are almost guaranteed a few titillating giggles right from the get go. But don't stop at sprinkles; once you have enough on the body, take out a pastry brush and gently spread the cornstarch over your lover's entire body. Next, give a seductive full-body massage using the cornstarch instead of body oil. It may take a minute to get the pressure just right so that the cornstarch just flows across the skin through your fingertips, but once you do, it won't be too long before you are off to some other pleasures.
