When Food Is Sexy: 10 of the World's Weirdest Aphrodisiacs

April 23, 2014 2 min read

Everyone's heard of the mystical powers of Spanish Fly, but what other wild and crazy edible aphrodisiacs are out there? To get in the mood, would you drink cobra blood, or eat any number of animal penises? Frankly, it just seems easier to get some Viagra. But we thought we'd share some the shocking libido-boosters from all across the globe in case you change your mind. 1. Cobra: In parts of Asia, this deadly snake is harvested for its blood and meat, both touted for their romance-inducing qualities. The blood is sometimes mixed into alcoholic beverages, while the meat is consumed as a delicacy. 2. Fugu: When properly prepared, fugu, or blowfish, is said by the Japanese to produce a tingling in one's cheeks and lips that, after it fades, increases sexual arousal. Of course, this is also one of the deadliest fish in the sea, which if not properly prepared by licensed chefs, can kill you. Somehow, it just doesn't seem worth the risk. 3. Bird's nest soup: This Asian delicacy is exactly what it sounds like. Soup made from a bird's nest. The rare and difficult-to-procure nests are made from the saliva of the cave-dwelling Swift. Though that might sound less than appealing, people who have consumed this extremely expensive dish swear by its ability to get your motor running. 4. Maca: Used as a powder, this root found in the Andes contains sterol, a steroid-like chemical guaranteed to boost your libido and make for a magical night. 5. Balut: Another Asian delicacy, these fertilized duck eggs are served boiled in their own shells, and thought to act as an all-natural Viagra. 6. Rhino horns: OK, let's keep the "horny" jokes to a minimum, shall we? This rare and illegal aphrodisiac (endangered species, anybody?) is especially craved for by men in Africa suffering from impotency. 7. Ambergris: Pretty name, disgusting source. This waxy substance comes from the digestive tract of sperm whales. Long used as a perfuming agent, certain Arabian texts also prescribe it for use in the bedroom. 8. Giant Leaf Cutter Ants: For more than 500 years, these giant ants have been a traditional gift to South American newlyweds on their wedding night. Roasted with the legs and wings removed, they are considered the ultimate key to a wild night. We wonder if this goes on the registry. 9. Sea Cucumbers: Due to a high concentration of vitamins and minerals, these nasty looking, slug-like creatures that roam the sea floor are touted as a major pre-coital boost in China. 10. Baboon urine: In Zimbabwe, if it's sexual woes that ail you, baboon urines is the way to go. Drunk with beer, locals swear by the amazing powers of monkey piss. Would you try any of these wild cures to spice things up in the bedroom? Source: Your Tango

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
