Sex stimulants continue to gain an unprecedented level of popularity especially among the youth, who use these aphrodisiacs for sexual pleasures.
This contradicts the popular belief that reduced sex drive majorly occurs in individuals with relatively low levels of testosterone, meaning post-menopausal women or men over the age of 60.
In the pursuit of increased stamina and improved libido, several youths have resorted to the use of stimulants and drinks thought or said to be an avenue to sexual pleasures.
Thenetng takes a look at some of the popular sex stimulants that Nigerians now use to improve their sexual capabilities and pleasures.
This is the most commonly used stimulant available. Herbal drinks have always been available, but became extremely popular in the early 2000s with the birth of the famous medicinal drink from Ghana called ‘Alomo’, which is said to be a health drink with curative properties, especially for men.
However, it has turned out to be one of the most sought after sex stimulants by most young men, who take the drink judiciously. Other herbal drinks in its category, allegedly with the same sexual stimulating properties include Ogidiga, Ori Malu, Webo, Osomo, Action Bitters and many more. Investigations have revealed that these alcoholic drinks are said to increase men’s stamina during sexual intercourse.
SEX CHEWING GUM
This is reportedly often used as a trap to lure unsuspecting ladies, arouse them sexually and then have sex with them (now you know). These stimulating chewing gums reportedly deliver a unique feeling and sexual arousal for women only.
Chewing the gum can secrete estrogen, which stimulates the pituitary gland to produce excitement and then transmits it to the nerve. The chewing gum is sold in sachets with 10 pieces going for just N500, and is said to work better when chewed 30 minutes before sexual activity.
Aphrodisiacs are substances that increase sexual desire or libido. Many foods, drinks, pills, ointments and even chewing gum have been said to make sex more pleasurable. However, from a historical and scientific standpoint, the alleged results may be more because the users believe that they will be effective, also known as the placebo effect.
Like normal tea bags, the Love Tea also comes in a pack, but with a different composition and mission. Its mission is to stimulate the urge to have sex in both men and women.
It’s best served and consumed hot, and in a matter of minutes it sends a tingling sensation down your spine. You begin to feel aroused. The love tea is particularly reliable, according to habitual users, who say it doesn’t have any known side effects and works wonders.
Viagra surely needs little or no introduction at all. It’s the world-renowned capsule that gives unparalleled strength and ability to a man during sexual intercourse.
At its inception, it was embraced by older men who were not as virile as they used to be. But these days, it’s a favourite among Nigerians both young and old, who either don’t have full confidence in their natural ability to perform sexually or want to last longer in bed.
The Viagra capsule comes in a sachet containing 12 capsules and cost N5,000. Cheaper ones are also available in sachets of four capsules. Men usually use Viagra 10 minutes before sex.
One of the several sex enhancers that people patronise is Sex Sugar. It’s a lubricant that a lady rubs on her private parts and makes the man enjoy the sexual intercourse beyond.
Its main function is to ‘sweeten’ the experience, hence the name. It’s a lubricant that comes in little white pack and costs N1,000. It is often used with condoms.
Popularly called Rhodiola, and originally from Russia, it’s a popular natural libido enhancer for men and women. The Sex Tonic is a medicinal herb that is used to increase sex drive and urge for people who suffer from low sexual appetite. Two spoons of the Sex Tonic daily gets the job done.
This soap costs N2,500 and is used 15 minutes before sexual intercourse by both ladies and gentlemen. Its primary function is to delay ejaculation, making sex more enjoyable and long lasting.
