If you have to believe in early European stories, asparagus is what it takes for a romantic evening to go true. In the nineteenth century, France often left the bridegroom eating three asparaguses before moving on to the wedding night. If you add ginger, there would probably be excitement in the new marital bedroom.
But before that time, in the 17th century, the English herb maker Nicholas Culpepper wrote that asparagus “wakes light in both men and women”. Perhaps it was the phrase that the good French did. However, the rumors of asparagus are not entirely without reason. They contain large amounts of fiber, vitamins A, B and B6 as well as folic acid. The latter should reportedly boost histamine production, which is not quite bad as it is necessary to achieve orgasm.
