The Legacy of Love Potions

Tropical Flower by W. Scifres
Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder is still the most common form of sexual dysfunction. Gynos see patients all day long who are hoping we have finally synthesized that perfect 'love' potion that we have sought since antiquity. One of the most poetic renditions of a gyno consultation for a love potion can be found in Ovid, the Metamorphoses XIV. It describes the consultation by Glaucus with the sorceress (shall we say sorceress/gyno). It was a fateful consultation for object of his affection, as Circe fell for her patient, thus when he rejected her advances she transformed his beloved into a rock. .And al these eons later, we are still actively doing research on the modern day "potion" for instance with the Bloom Trial.which is no longer enrolling, but the data is being studied. In that case the potion is actually testosterone in a lotion, so perhaps it pushes the definition of potion a bit far, but still, a bit of fun in the bed room is not all that bad.
