Fall is in the air which means it’s time for me to start talking about one of my favorite foods, pumpkin.
Did you know that pumpkin is an aphrodisiac? Well, let me entertain you…
This pumpkin butter is sure to kick start some serious flirting or something more frisky! The scents of pumpkin and cinnamon are known for arousing men, as well as women. They are two aphrodisiacs that work well together that create magic on a fork. Use on your favorite breads, biscuits, muffins or last but not least use on your lover. A little forkplay adds to foreplay which is a very good thing!
