Irrespective of culture and civilization, females, before having sex and in order to show their consent, normally send some kind of signals such as: 'You can have me'. Additionally, in certain cultures, a female starts undressing the male.
Although alcohol can impair sexual desire, we find a lot of poems which associate wine with good sex. Paradoxically, the poets of the past, due to religious prohibition, might not have had an alcoholic drink at all. Another contemporary example is Hollywood movies in which too much strong drinks are used.
We are told that some kings were surrounded by dancers, musicians, poets, and court jokers. In these courts, to arouse the kings, herbs and aphrodisiacs were used. Perhaps some secrets as to enhancement of love making were passed to the kings.
Middle Eastern men have had a different outlook on sexuality. For instance, there is a story about a junior king living in the same area, who after having sex with his wife, turned very angry, because, while having sex, the woman had rhythmically moved her buttocks, a rude behavior which made the king very disappointed. He displayed his anger by saying, "Am I having sex with her or she with me?" This reaction can be interpreted as disrespect for women and, in general, lack of essence of democracy.
However, it seems that people, particularly in Western societies, have undergone a gradual evolution: tampering with Nature's incentive to reproduce. Consequently, they are using contraception. Presently, with the advent of sex tools, they have taken another giant step by using female libido and sexual enhancement products to illicitly benefit from the Nature's incentive. Why? Because they are told their sex life should always be healthy and fulfilling. This sounds great because they can have their partners at hand's reach. Therefore, men are no longer a female's only focus.
Among these tools are: penis-shaped objects in various forms and sizes, vibrators that can stimulate the G-spot, a mythical figment of imagination, clitoris stimulators, some offering anal stimulation, balls, used to insert them into the vagina or anus and then removing them in order to create stimulation.
While genetically modified fruits do not taste as good as the naturally ripened fruits of the past, we find a new generation of women who have developed a new taste for GM sex rather than organic penis.
