Spanish Fly: Aphrodisiac or Assassin?
When the average person thinks of a sex stimulant, they more often than not think of Spanish Fly. The legend behind this substance has been around for centuries, dating back to the Roman Empire.
Truth is, Spanish Fly is not a fly but a beetle. The substance is a powder made from the crushed, dried wings of a greenish beetle called Lytta vesicatoria, found in southern Europe. The powder doesn’t cause sexual interest but instead irritates the genitals, which leads to an itch you can’t scratch.
It gets worse. Not only is a genital itch not sexy, it can be dangerous---even lethal. A moderate dose of authentic Spanish Fly will kill a person. Even a tiny dose will more often than not cause fever, painful urination, extreme irritation of the genitals, and a bloody discharge.
As you can see, there’s nothing sexy, romantic or even safe about Spanish Fly.
Most companies offering Spanish Fly are in fact not selling anything close to it. Most create a “proprietary formula” usually containing cayenne pepper. While the pepper can be good for you, and may flush a person so they feel warm inside, it is not a true sex stimulant.
In short, if someone offers you Spanish Fly, run.
