Ambergris
If you’ve ever seen the “Ambergris” episode of Bob’s Burgers, you know that it is a truly strange substance. Secreted by a sperm whale, it is used both as a food and as an ingredient in some luxury perfumes. Casanova apparently used ambergris-infused perfume to make the ladies swoon, and it has a history in the Middle East of being consumed to increase a man’s virility. One royal family in that region reportedly combines ambergris with milk and honey to create the passion-inducing dish. It is banned in the United States because of the endangered status of the sperm whale, but other countries still buy and sell it. Depending on the size of the ambergris, it can be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Upon seeing his enemy descend upon him, the Irishman looked heavenward and repeated the object of his quest in his thick accent: "Whale oil. Beef, hooked."

And she says to him,
"I've just walked by the dolphin tank,
And they're feeling very amorous -
They're doing all sort of things to each other.
And the trouble is in less than an hour,
We've got three busloads of second gr...

Fugu
There’s nothing like a near-death experience to get you and your partner in the mood. Handled improperly, fugu (or blowfish) has enough tetrodotoxin to poison you 30 times over! Many people have died from eating fugu, but if prepared the right way, it leaves adventurous eaters with a tingling sensation that is said to be one of the reasons it increases libido. You can safely help yourself to fugu in Japan, as long as the chef who prepares it has the special license and technique to handle it properly.

In both Britain and Germany health ministers have enabled Viagra to maintain its marketing mystique by refusing to allow its prescription through their respective general medical services. Had they wished to perpetuate the mistaken belief that Viagra is an aphrodisiac, they could hardly have picked a more certain strategy.

Public discussion was forbidden. More Pricks Than Kicks, the 1934 book by Samuel Beckett, was banned on the strength of its title alone, although that came from Jesus's words to St Paul, "It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." From then on, Beckett's heroes became the image of the wholly impotent man, short on both sexual prowess and economic power. They went on to help him win the Nobel Prize.

Mighty this whale was though, and it would not be brought down. It dragged his vessel for leagues, eventually in to the heart of the storm. Our Irish sailor persisted, trying every trick to bring down his nemesis, but to no avail. The whale heaved his ship through the storm, battering it with waves and weather until it was barely seaworthy.

That sex existed in Eamon de Valera's Ireland is a matter of record, but on some evidence hard to believe. Looking back, the culture is in the position of teenage children who find it difficult to imagine that their own parents ever had sex at all. No positive images of sex or sexuality present themselves from those times, which in practice lasted until at least the early 1970s, when Ireland's membership of the EU began to enable citizens to challenge aspects of restrictive sexual controls for the first time.

Oatmeal
Mmm, nothing is sexier than a hot steamy bowl of oatmeal. All joking aside, eating concentrated amounts of oats has been shown to increase testosterone levels in men. Skip the strawberries for breakfast and give your man a box of Quaker Oats instead. Or better yet, whip up a batch of Diane’s 6-Spice Oatmeal Cookies. That’s sure to whet his appetite.

If there was sex in de Valera's Ireland, as we must conclude, it was officially a practice entirely divorced from pleasure. Until Ireland joined the EU, the standard response to any means of artificially assisting or encouraging pleasurable sex and sexuality was to either ignore it or ban it out of hand.
