Thread: In Praise of Licorice
I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this; however, I think the general thrust may appeal to the younger Lotharios of the forum (I am not young, nor, to the best of my knowledge, have I ever been a Lothario).
From the NY Times food section:
"In one small experiment on sexual response to food scents, vaginal and penile blood flow was measured in 31 men and women who wore masks emitting various food aromas. This was the study that found men susceptible to the scent of doughnuts mingled with licorice. For women, first place for most arousing was a tie between baby powder and the combination of Good & Plenty candy with cucumber. Coming in second was a combination of Good & Plenty and banana nut bread."
