Spanish Fly is No Bueno…

I’m conducing a couples workshop in Mexico this week and a question arose about the notorious Spanish fly.  Yes, there really is such a thing and no, kids, don’t try this at home.  The spanish fly is made from beetles — the South American Emerald Green Beetle to be precise.  The Spanish fly is poisonous to humans but they are sometimes used to arouse bulls as an enticement to help them breed. I didn’t actually know bulls needed any more motivation to breed than a heifer in heat! The moral of the story is, as yummy as they look, leave these beetles to the bulls.
