Good wine improves your mood… and your sex life
Wine, health, love and sex. With these ingredients, Dr. José Luis Arrondo has written an interesting book (Cénlit Publications) to which Kukuxumusu has added some light-hearted illustrations with its own singular humor and images.
The book is a complete and pleasant treatise which expands on the many benign qualities that are to be found in wine throughout the 250 pages of this book. However, the whole treatise could be summed up in just a few words: wine is good for one’s health, one’s love life, and, indeed, even one’s sex life.
Thus, the author tells us that, for the ancient Greeks, wine was an almost sacred element, which was linked to fertility and to sex. And he explains that fact with a recipe taken from the period: “All those who grind up fifty pine nuts and mix them with some peppers and who drink them down diluted in two glasses of wine may acquire the capacity to complete the act of love several times in succession”.
One of the most amusing aspects of his treatise is when Dr. Arrondo makes use of science to convince us of the beneficial power of wine, due to its vasodilator effects, when taken in moderation, of course. “If the wine is good for the heart, (cardio-protector), it must also be good for the penis (penis-protector), for the clitoris and for the vagina”, he notes, when he outlines that the arteries of the penis are high-risk arteries, just like those of the head and the heart.
Indeed, we could extract many such amusing affirmations from this entertaining book but the best thing would be to go out and buy the book (besides, 50% of the author’s rights go directly to Medicus Mundi NGO), and then uncork a bottle of good wine. As you slowly sip your wine, dip into the book and browse some leisurely extracts and let your imagination work at its own pace and thus enjoy your wine as you learn something more of its abundant qualities.
At Kukuxumusu we like to taste some good wines to aid our inspiration. Our neurons soon dilate and begin to dance with the pencil cases. From time to time, we are inspired by images, such as this one of a bottle-opener and a wine bottle, as they get it together to the rhythm of UB40. We put the drawing on some pijamas, and this could be the perfect outfit for wearing at home as you prepare the dinner, or we sometimes even put it on some cute boxer shorts like these.
One particular piece of advice catches our eye from among the many that we can find in this book: in order to discover the amatory qualities of a person, just observe them as they sip and drink a good wine…their attitude could be most revealing… cheers and the best of luck!
