Is It Safe To Use Spanish Fly?

This article answers the most popular question about the most popular aphrodisiac produced by one of the most popular insects in the world.

Have you ever ever heard of the Spanish Fly? It’s a widely known aphrodisiac that has been stated to work magic!
Well, back in the ancient times, it was an “aphrodisiac”.
Nowadays, it is no longer in use.
To be honest, it’s even banned in a lot of places around the world especially the Western countries like France and Denmark.

But first, before we take a look at its safety and effects, permit me to digress a bit and the you everything there is, about this aphrodisiac.

Important Facts About Spanish Fly

Spanish fly is gotten from the spanish fly aphrodisiac (note the variation).

The Spanish fly is an insect that belongs to the group of insects called blister beetles. Its a green colored insect that is found in parts of Europe and also Asia, with some found in Siberia.

The blister beetles are so called because they secrete a chemical substance known as Cantharidin, which produces severe blisters on the surface of the skin if there is contact with it and has also been used throughout history to cure a number of illnesses.

Apart from that, they — and most notably, Spanish fly — have been mainly used as an aphrodisiac to stimulate the genitals.

The Cantharidin produced by the Spanish fly was gotten in two ways: from from the amount secreted to insect’s body, or by drying and crushing them.
Safe Or Not?

Although cantharidin is used by doctors and scientists for curing a number of things, it’s essentially a very potent poison and all that it does is to irritates genitals and this led to humans believing that it would actually help them aroused. But the truth behind this irritation was revealed and showed to be dangerous. It also had numerous side effects, if used in uncontrolled amounts.
Additionally, it did not really work as expected (as a drug), but as a vesicant which could potentially harm the skin and internal organs, so basically human beings had been risking their lives through the use of Spanish fly, which is rather sad.

Side Effects

The effects of using Spanish fly wrongly on the internal body organs are numerous.

A few of them are:

• Severe abdominal pain
• Kidney destruction
• Irritation of the urethra (this is how it does its “work”)
• Eroding of the mucosa (lining) of the organs especially the gastrointestinal tract
• Internal bleeding
• Migraines

The eventual death of the affected person is usually inevitable, in most of the cases of Cantharidin poisoning.

So, in case you are asking if it’s safe to use Spanish fly or not, the definite answer would be to only take controlled amounts of Cantharidin with a doctor’s guidance, so as to have help at hand in case of an emergency.
However, there are other libido boosting products these days made from aphrodisiacs, which have similar names as Spanish fly, but with different composition and ingredients.

Set the right mood with Spanish Fly

What makes up sexual mood? What puts a person into a particularly receptive mindset as far as sex is concerned? Well, believe it or not just because that female wants to have sex with you now, does not necessarily mean that she would want to have sex with you later on in the future.

You see sexual mood, just like your regular moods, tend to fluctuate. They go up and down over time. You have to keep this in mind because there are many components to sexual mood. It involves a time, place, setting and most importantly triggers. People actually think in autopilot to some extent. They just need to see certain cues or triggers and they save a lot of biochemical, physical energy as well as willpower, trying to figure things out based on first principles. They look at a situation and as long as they can see certain elements that is good enough for them. They can take default or automatic action based on the presence of those signals.

You see how this works? This also applies to sexual mood. You just have to see certain triggers and it is very easy for your libido to change for the better.

How to enhance or trigger sexual mood

If you want to take things into your own hands and actually trigger a sexual mood, pay attention to timing, setting, decoration and your wide range of triggers. In other words, pay attention to yourself. Keep a journal and you would see certain patterns. You would see that in certain times of the day you are more likely to be emotionally aroused in terms of sex.

Emotional arousal needs accurate tracking. Why? Oftentimes, we assume we know ourselves but it turns out we don’t know ourselves all that well. We assume too much. We expect too much. We make all sorts of leaps and we are left in the lurch. It turns out that we are simply filling in the gaps and we are reading too much into things and when it comes down to it we are left clutching an empty bag.

Emotional arousal requires the kind of introspection and personal honesty and authenticity that scares most guys. Most would prefer to be scared little boys deep down inside. They would rather dismiss the big issues and the big challenges in their lives through denial and all too comfortable and numbing fictions, myths, and delusions. Sadly, if you want to get laid, none of these would help you. You have to base your game on reality. You would have to base it on actual emotional arousal and this requires paying close attention to yourself and truly knowing yourself without going on auto pilot or engaging in lazy self-delusions.

You can also look at the setting and location. Do you get excited in the library? Or do you get excited in your bed? Decoration is also very important because they send all sorts of signals. They are not as big as a formal triggers but ultimately they can be quite effective as well.

A little word about triggers, they are mental in nature. They are concepts that you do not necessarily have to front of you. You do not necessarily have to be able to process them with your senses. Oftentimes, a memory is enough. Triggers are important because through your willpower and your ability to read into things, you can amplify the power of a trigger so you can fix certain problems.

This is especially true if you are suffering from low libido. You can use physical triggers. What do they have in common? How do they operate? What specific forms do they take? Well, you can try clothing. Have you ever heard the old saying that if you want to feel like a million bucks, start dressing like somebody who is worth a million bucks. In other words, clothes can make the man. If you are aware of some commonly understood uniform for a success with the ladies, then a chain reaction takes place in your mind and somehow, someway you are able to find the resources and the time to produce with the right results.

Spanish Fly can also be a great physical trigger.  Because of its long history, you could read a lot on its positive effect as far as your sex life is concerned. Finally you can look into aphrodisiac foods. These are actually quite powerful. How come? You read a lot into these foods. You read meaning into them. You draw limitations. You imagine boundaries. You read into them your hopes and wishes.

This might sound all delusional but there’s actually a lot of power involved. Why? The moment you define something you can make it really powerful or really weak. In other words, you practice your power of editing your personal reality. This is a powerful and almost inexhaustible source of personal power.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use this power intentionally, clearly, and on point? Wouldn’t it be awesome to finally break free of all your self-imposed limitations by simply focusing on a physical trigger and predictably getting a boost? Well, you can with aphrodisiac foods and other physical triggers with all sorts of historical and traditional readings and reputations. You just need to believe in the conventional wisdom surrounding them and you get to get out from under whatever limiting beliefs you have about many of your abilities and desires.

Never underestimate the power of triggers. We are constantly reading meaning into our world. If we only chose to be more mindful about this process, maybe the process can work for us instead of against us. Instead of thinking that life is unfair or the sex game is stacked against you, by simply working with your mind’s triggers and associations, you can set up your success with the ladies in a way where every victory leaves you more and more confident. Spanish fly can start that process. Get on that upward spiral of sexual confidence today.

Food, Sex, and Art: An Essentialist View

Paul Bloom argues that what humans find pleasurable can be linked to evolutionary adaptations such as the desire for sex, fat, salt, warmth, social bonds and stimulation and also to beliefs about the essential nature of things. The essentialist states that things are treated the way they are for deep, underlying reasons. These essential views are sometimes irrational. Like our unspoken belief in magic.

Food and PleasureBloom sees both evolutionary forces, such as the drive to consume protein and calories, as well as cultural factors in our choice of foods. Aversions to food tend to be formed around the former illness or are especially linked to food that derives from animals–either meat or foods such as cheese. This hints at a biological, evolutionary adaptation to avoid poison or being sickened by eating rotten flesh. Continue reading
