Truffles - Tasty Aphrodisiacs
There are two types of truffles and both of them are tasty and sexy! I’m talking about the kinds you hear about in the forest that pigs root for, and I’m also talking about the chocolate kind – that we all root for!
Chocolate Truffles - Tasty!
They look alike, don’t they? Is it any wonder that they modeled the chocolate kind on the earthy, musky rare forest kind?
Ever since the Roman orgy times, woodland truffles have been prized for the exotic aphrodisiac qualities. Just the smell of one of those prized little woody mushrooms can send a woman up in flames. That’s said to be true because the musky smell is very similar to those hot musky male pheromones guys send out when they are excited! A dish made with white truffles can turn dinner into delight, but a little bit of a rarer black one can light your night on fire!
And then there’s chocolate truffles. Maybe there isn’t scientific evidence of the aphrodisiac effect of a chocolate truffle like there is about the woodland truffle, but let’s get real here. Chocolate is a turn on! And we naturally beautiful women love you fabulously sexy guys (or gals for some) who give us gifts of chocolate kisses and boxes of Valentine’s chocolates, and yes – we will get all gaga and googoo over you when you give us just one (or maybe two) delicious, delightful, sexy chocolate truffle!
tummy tucks - natural beauty??????
Are you kidding me? Is this what we are wanting to do to our bodies today? And what would this person have looked like if she had stood up straight and had a bra on in the first photo?
I’m not saying that plastic surgery is unsafe – well, maybe I am. But what about losing weight, drinking water, exercising and maintaining your natural health so that you don’t have to get cut and slashed to maintain your natural beauty? Isn’t that what you and I are all about?
This is the 21st Century and plastic surgery has come a long way since the early days. However there are risks inherent in every surgical procedure, in every procedure where anesthesia is utilized, and every time a human being has a knife inserted into them. Just ask rap star Kanye West whose mother died during a cosmetic surgery procedure.
According to a recent show done on the BBC, “A tummy-tuck is one of the surgical procedures which has higher complication rates because mobility is restricted after surgery. ”
That being said, eye lifts and liposuction might be okay if you do your research carefully and thoroughly. Here is some advice that is worth following:
- First, make sure that you are in excellent physical health, especially if you will be having same-day surgery with no aftercare.
- Second, listen carefully to the advice of the surgeon and if you are told you’re not a good candidate, don’t go out and find another surgeon who will do it anyway. Be sensible with your own natural health.
- Third, always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon.

If you’re like me, you’ve got to wipe the drool off your computer after watching this video. Could there be anything sexier than two people dancing the Tango – and I guess the answer is YES if the two people are JLo and Richard Gere.
The Tango is all about romance and sex and giving your partner all of your undivided attention with your eyes and your body. You convince your partner that she or he is all important to you. On the dance floor this is enacted by two dancers staring fixedly in each others eyes nose-to-nose. While you are dancing together, you listen to each other’s bodies and adjust yours to theirs, slowly and deliberately making sure that your bodies are acting and reacting as one.
Tango dance is the ultimate in romance and beauty and the epitome of allure of the ballroom dance, which we all know is very, very popular these days with “Dancing with the Stars” et al. It is a sultry and seductive form of dance that creeps into the hearts and bodies not only of the dancers, but also of the watchers. The tango is like sex – promiscuous, sweaty, lustful exchanges between two participants with eyes only for one another.
The tango is an intimate dance with complicated steps – walking together in close embrace, one body up against the other with chests pressing together, legs rubbing and sweat mixing. It is a communication between two lovers, two partners. As one tango master says, “ Each partner must be willing to become vulnerable in order to exchange energies: a physical and emotional transaction takes place.”
Tomato Hair Rinse for Natural Beauty
Tomatoes Good for your Hair's Natural Beauty
Got a dog? Did it ever get sprayed by a skunk? Then you know the cure for skunk smell is tomato juice. Tomatoes aren’t fabulous just for skunk head, they’re pretty good for some other head uses. Any kind of hair product will restore your hair’s pH to normal, as well as get rid of swimming pool chlorine.
Ketchup really can’t be classified as a vegetable (sorry President Reagan), but it is great mixed with oil for dry hair. Mix the ketchup with a tablespoon of some good oil (sweet almond or extra virgin or avocado) and apply to hair. Leave the ketchup mixture on your hair for 10 15 minutes. The proteins in the mixture will repair some damage from dryness and pollution.
If your hair is blonde, only leave it on your hair for a very short time as it will leave some red residue.
But if your hair has turned green because you didn’t listen to my recommendations on how to cut down on chemical damage from chlorine (See Previous Post - C is for Chlorine – Cutting Down on Chemical Challenges), never fear. Get some pure organic tomato juice or tomato sauce and put it on your hair. Leave it in for 15 minutes (less for blondes!) and rinse it out. You should be green-free and totally tress-terrific!
I’m not going to tell you to run out and have an orgy with tomatoes – although, hmmmm?????? But I will tell you that the tomato, which has also been referred to as a “love apple,” should not be ignored as a delicious way to get some sexy romance started.
All of you Italians out there are going to love this – the tomato is sexy! Once thought of as poisonous, they are now considered very healthful due to the high concentrations of lycopene, an antioxidant. The tomato is a member of the nightshade family (see previous post – N is for Nightshades – No, No, NO!!!) which is troublesome to people dealing with pain of arthritis. And it’s also related to belladonna, which really is a poison!
Whether you believe that the tomato was actually the culprit in the Garden of Eden, or you just look at the siren red succulent color of a rich, ripe tomato and go all sexy, if you’re looking to have a romantic evening, you might want to start out with a hot and spicy Bloody Mary or a dish of Pasta Pomodoro to get the love juices flowing.
