If you expect Spanish fly to send you and
your lover into spasms of sexual delight, watch out! A most unpleasant surprise
awaits those who toy with this famed „aphrodisiac.“ Scientifically, Spanish fly
is known as cantharides and is actually produced from the crushed wings of the
Lytta vesicatoria (also Cantharis vesicatoria) beetle. The thought of eating
beetle parts may not seem particularly appealing, but that’s not the worst of
it. This is one drug that not only fails to live up to its reputation as a
sexual mood enhancer, but will also prove to be a real bummer.

Cantharides are used legally as a method of
inducing farm animals to mate.‘ The drug doesn’t make bulls feel sexy or conjure
up images of bovine Linda Lovelaces, however. What it does is to severely
irritate the urethral passages during urination. The resulting burning sensation
in the genitals creates a false sense of sexual excitement in the animal.

People have tang believed the myth that
Spanish fly will cause them to have superhuman sexual capacity and desire.
Wrong! Even a tiny dose will more often cause a combination of fever, painful
urination, extreme irritation of the genitals, and a bloody discharge. If
that’s‘ not enough to scare you away, consider the- fact that cantharides can
permanently damage the kidneys and genitals. Maybe you am get a kidney replaced
in this modern age of transplants, but go try to find a new set of genitals.
Even worse, in a great many instances, use of cantharides by humans has resulted
in death. Not much fun at all.

Don’t be fooled by phony ads or head-shop
products that offer „real“ Spanish fly. Thankfully, they are not selling the
real thing, but only cayenne pepper, a substance that gets fun seekers nowhere

Let a word to the wise be sufficient: Leave
Spanish fly to the farm animals. The aphrodisiac benefits in human use are
simply a lot of bull.
