Spanish Fly

I was always a little disturbed by the seedier stories I heard, in my youth, about Spanish Fly – but for some reason, apropos of nothing, it just now struck me how much of a monstrous┬ádrug those urban legends would have been.

This was not the angle of approach that I recall the fourteen-year-old narrators taking in imparting the mystic qualities of a ground bug.

The whole thing has me seriously reconsidering the classic concept of the love potion.
