Why Spanish Fly works also on men. And is NOT deadly anymore.
What was Spanish fly? Was it designed for men only? Was it deadly? You might have heard about Spanish fly in the sex comedies of the 1980s. This aphrodisiac is made for men to make their ladies hot.
The name of the Spanish fly has come from the insects known as the Spanish flies. These are also called blister beetles and meloid beetles. These are used as the aphrodisiacs as they have a specific chemical, cantharidin.
This chemical makes the Spanish fly act as the aphrodisiac. Moreover, the cantharidin has given the name of blister beetles to the meloid beetles. These are very harmful and can blister your skin. If you ingest it, it will act as the poison.
According to the biologists, the meloid beetles develop this chemical for their safety purposes. They try to make them unattractive and secrete a milky fluid from the joints of their legs and store them for the future use. Their mating is also businesslike. The male will hand over the sperm to the female. The female will have the discretion to accept it or not.
The male also produces bonus cantharidin to cover the eggs and to protect them from the predators. This is known as the nuptial gift. This process might inspire the researchers to use this chemical to make the man hot.
Cantharidin works as an irritant. People use it to treat warts, tattoos, and moles. These are considered effective for the digestion and ingestion. When it makes its way to the body, it causes irritation. It will be extremely noticeable in the case of women. Men will experience swelling in that area and that will support long-lasting erection. These are not pleasant and comfortable. But still, people use this harmful chemical.
A small dose might not be that harmful. But if you take it in major quantity, it can be fatal. Yes, you have heard right. The philosopher and poet, Lucretius, is believed to have died with an overdose of this chemical.
There will be many other side effects including mild and severe. Swelling and irritation are obvious. But the death is the severe side effect. Even if you are using it, make sure that you are taking only a small quantity and with the recommendation of an expert. Otherwise, you can experience many problems. You should always remember that a minor overdose will cause lasting erection and you might need to visit your doctor for the treatment.
In addition, you can experience the heart and respiratory problems, extreme abdominal pain, convulsions, coma, bloody urine, and death. As it is an easy way to induce an erection, people normally ignore the side effects. But you need to be much more careful while using the Spanish fly.
