There’s a saying that goes “hunger is the best spice.” This is true. Without starvation as my salsa, I would never have been able to ingest all of those microwaveable burritos I ate when I was a wee street waif. You know the burritos I’m talking about: They come frozen in packs of 30 and they’re essentially toilet-paper tubes filled with beef caulking. This isn’t a saying anyone says, except for me, but it’s also true: “chastity is the best aphrodisiac.” Which is one reason I am totally pro-dry humping, a highly underrated sexual activity.

A 35-year-old man in New York died after ingesting a small piece of an aphrodisiac made from toad venom. The man went to the hospital complaining of chest and abdominal pains, but doctors were unable to treat him. The aphrodisiac, a hardened resin that contains chemicals known to disrupt heart rhythms, is supposed to be applied topically rather than ingested, but authorities say even that can be harmful. If you’re feeling the need to spice things up in bed, don’t buy anything sold under these names: Piedra, Love Stone, Jamaican Stone, Black Stone, or Chinese Rock. [Gothamist] Keep reading »
