Just because NewJackSwing cares!
Wow, what a day and what a weekend. I'm pooped from work because we got hammered! It's that lead in period in the retail world that takes you towards the Holiday season. It seems like people either have money to blow or they're starting their holiday shopping. I think it's going to be a good holiday season again for the store and hopefully this season my bonus will be bigger!
Anyways, as I was sitting here relaxing I was giving some thought about what to add for my blog installment here on AdultFriendFinder. So as I sat thinking I clicked on my trusty copy of Netscape and it loaded. I browsed through the articles to stay up on my world events and I stumbled across this article. As I read it I thought "Wow! let's be a real help to the folks in the AdultFriendFinder community!".
So folks, never say I didn't give you anything of value when it comes to reading my blog! (and hey, that's because I care about your sexual well being and I am that kind of guy! ). Oh and as a side note, if you eat what's recommended in this article and do live in London Ontario and do get a certain "way" get in touch with me and we'll see if this works!
Enjoy and until next time,
(but you can call me Jay)
This Food Really Makes You Feel Frisky!
Old wives' tales have long held that oysters are an aphrodisiac that will inspire great lovemaking. Turns out, it's true. An international team of American and Italian scientists has shown that bivalve mollusks, a group of shellfish that includes oysters, mussels, and clams, are rich in two rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones, report London's Telegraph and HealthDayNews.
"For centuries, old wives' tales have said that eating raw mollusks--oysters in particular--would stimulate the libido but there has really been no scientific evidence as to why and if this occurs," lead study author George Fisher of Barry University in Miami, Fla. told the Telegraph. "We think this could be the first scientific evidence of some substance."
Fisher and his team, including researchers with the Laboratory of Neurobiology in Naples, Italy, analyzed samples of bivalve mollusks bought from fish markets in Naples. Using a process called high-performance liquid chromatography to identify which amino acids were present and in what quantities, they determined there were two unusual ones: D-aspartic acid (D-Asp) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). "They are not the normal amino acids that Mother Nature uses," Fisher explained to the Telegraph. "You can't just find them in a vitamin shop."
An earlier experiment by the Naples team showed that when rats were injected with these amino acids, it caused a chain reaction of hormones that resulted in the production of testosterone in males and progesterone in females. "Increased levels of those hormones in the blood means you are more active sexually," Fisher explained. Spring is the best season to take advantage of this aphrodisiac because the mollusks themselves are breeding and they contain the highest concentration of amino acids then.
One important note: The oysters must be eaten raw for the most effectiveness since cooking diminishes the quantity of D-Asp and NDMA molecules. HealthDayNews notes that other foods thought to have aphrodisiac qualities include asparagus, almonds, avocado, bananas, basil, chocolate, eggs, figs, and foie gras. The study findings were reported to a meeting of the American Chemical Society.

Do the eggs have to be raw as well? Oh, by the way, how'd you like to stop by for dinner? I'll be serving Oysters on the Half Shell, Clams Cassino, Avacados, Asparagus and Chocolate dipped bananas.|
