Sexpert Q&A: Anaphrodisiacs

Dear Dr. Yvonne, After a weekend of pre-marriage counseling, my fiance and I have been challenged by our church to practice abstinence until our wedding night. My fiance is super sexy and we've had such an active sex life that I think the next two months are going to kill me. Any suggestions on how I can reduce my sex drive?? Neil

Dear Neil, What you're referring to are anaphrodiaics - substances that decrease sexual urges. To reduce your libido, people have been known to_

  1. Read something really boring.
  2. Excessively use coffee, tea, tobacco, alcohol, lime juice, vinegar or lemons, as all are known to lessen desire. (Note: I'm not recommending them and it wouldn't be wise to use these in great quantities).
