Aphrodisiac's and Sensuality

Hi again,
If you are just connecting to the blog, then check out the earlier ones to get up to speed on this copy.

What is an Aphrodisiac and do they really work. Well we get the word Aphrodisiac from the greek word Aphrodites. WHo the heck was that.

Well she was the Greek goddess of love and beauty
A Gorgeous, perfect, eternally young woman with a beautiful body.
Her Girdle had magical powers to compel love and intimacy.

She was a Potent sexual goddess with entraping attractiveness, and a dazzling beauty.

He main weaknesses were she was up herself. A bit stuck on herself, but with a perfect face and body, who can blame her?

Her parents: One genealogy gives her parents as Zeus, King of the Gods, and Dione, an early earth/mother goddess. More commonly, she was believed to be born of the foam in the sea which bubbled around the severed member of Ouranos when Kronos slew him. (The queen of surfing)

Her Birthplace: Rising from the foam off of the island of Cyprus.

Her Spouse: Hephaestus, the lame smith-god. Also associated with Ares, god of War.

Children: Eros, a Cupid-like figure.

The story goes like this: Aphrodite rises from the foam of the waves of the sea, enchanting anyone who sees her and inciting feelings of love and lust wherever she goes.

She is a contender in the story of the Golden Apples, when Paris chooses her as the fairest of the three goddesses (the others were Hera and Athena) and Aphrodite decides to "reward" him for giving her the Golden Apple (the prototype of most modern awards) by giving him the love of Helen of Troy, something of a mixed blessing that led to the Trojan War.

So as you can see, she was the perfect 10 in every mans eyes. A sensuality that had men grovelling at her feet for the ultimate in erotic fantasy and lust. Of course out of that came eros which is where we get the word erotic (which is a love of the sensual) as oppossed to Philio (which is the greek word for Human love between a man and woman).

Understanding the words we use is powerful. So an aphrodisiac, is something that compels us towards total abandonment in sesual pleasure. Is there such a thing? Well we will look at that in the next blog
