Menopause Symptom #7 is Loss Of Libido, and now Too Hot Mamas is going to share with you the cure!
Did you know Graham Crackers were invented by the Reverend Sylvester Graham to cure “the fever of lust”? That’s right. The reverend believed whole, bland foods would cure us of carnal urges.
This is a load off of Too Hot Mamas’ minds and, we bet, off of yours, too.
We are not in menopause, after all, ladies; we have simply eaten too many Golden Grahams. Granted, the Rev. Sylvester probably wasn’t thinking about slapping a hunk of Hershey’s and a big ol’ marshmallow between his biscuits, like we do, but still graham crackers and other bland, whole or nutritious foods could be responsible for the crash of our libidos. Also, in Sylvester’s day milk and meat were considered to be responsible for sexual appetite, so you know the top ten anti-aging foods–all those fruits and veggies and lean things you’ve been told to focus on? They don’t seem so helpful anymore, do they?
Girlfriends, we have been sold a bill of goods about our diets. Salmon, blueberries and broccoli are supposed to kill hot flashes. Well, they’re gonna kill your libidos, too, sisters, so tell the waiter to bring you that Mississippi mud pie, after all, one fork.
You’ve burned your bras, now open that bag of Lays and don’t you worry your pretty heads about eating just one.
Thanks for the great tips, Reverend Sylvester. You are our new diet guru. We’re putting a brisket in the oven, baking up a Death-By-Chocolate cake and digging the 400 thread count sheets out of the laundry, ‘cause love is in the air. Or it will be, as soon as we’ve eaten the better part of a herd of cattle.
