Description

About The Magical and Ritual Use of Aphrodisiacs

Aphrodisiacs--the "foods of love" that increase sexual desire and potency--fall into two classifications: biochemical, which have a direct effect on sexual activity, and the more important group whose effects are psychophysiological in nature. Richard Alan Miller provides comprehensive and detailed information on using both kinds of aphrodisiacs. 


• Emphasizing the powerful role of the mind on the biochemistry of sexuality, Miller shows how intention and motivation can be focused to greatly augment the physical effects of these substances. 


• To stimulate the imagination and enhance both the physical and psychological effects of aphrodisiacs, the author suggests specific contemporary rituals drawn from sources as diverse as Tantric yoga and Western magic. 


• In previous editions, this and the author's other titles have sold more than 50,000 copies.
