Let's hear it for aphrodisiacs

…HA guesses Viagra and Levitra are aphrodisiacs, but the Medicine Hunter Chris Kilham, explorer in residence at the University of Mass (great title, huh?), is old school.

…He has trekked to furthest reaches of the world looking for botanicals that boost sexual performance.

…His book is “Hot Plants.” How could it not be?

…His jungle-finds enhance performance by ridding the body of stress compounds (HA thought that is what sex did). Others increase arousal and enhance circulation.

…If you don’t have time to scour the Back Forty, Kilham’s concoctions are available in pill form under the name of Hot Plants for Him and Hot Plants for Her. He claims they won’t hurt—and actually could be quite pleasant.

…You do remember how to take a pill, don’t you?

A reader had fits trying to sign up to comment (what's up with this sysytem?) and asked me to post the following:

Dear HA,
Reading your post on Hot Plants, I'm feeling tingly all over. Many thanks for the "contact high" (bet you haven't heard that term since the 60s). I'm gonna run, not walk, to my local Whole Foods and buy a bottle of Hot Plants for Him and Hot Plants for Her (for my wife). Will let you know what becomes of the tingle.
Warmly,
/DD
