Aphrodisiacs--the "foods of love" that increase sexual desire and potency--fall into two classifications: biochemical, which have a direct effect on sexual activity, and the more important group whose effects are psychophysiological in nature. Richard Alan Miller provides comprehensive and detailed information on using both kinds of aphrodisiacs.

Emphasizing the powerful role of the mind on the biochemistry of sexuality, Miller shows how intention and motivation can be focused to greatly augment the physical effects of these substances.

To stimulate the imagination and enhance both the physical and psychological effects of aphrodisiacs, the author suggests specific contemporary rituals drawn from sources as diverse as Tantric yoga and Western magic.

In previous editions, this and the author's other titles have sold more than 50,000 copies.
