What would you do if your husband ate Libido ice cream with another woman? It happened to me!
My friend from college and his wife were visiting from out of town. He and I both ride motorcycles, so we took mine out for a spin. Not to be outdone, my husband took my friend’s wife to Larry’s Ice Cream in Dupont Circle. He highly recommended the Libido ice cream, and she was game.
Libido ice cream just sounds so scandalous, especially with someone else’s wife! Larry’s Ice Cream must have a clever marketer because “Bailey's with Pistachios” just doesn’t have the same shock value. Plus, the jokes that can go along with ordering Libido ice cream are endless.
Is there any truth to Larry’s Ice Cream’s silly name? Can ice cream actually increase your libido? According to David Zinczenko, author of Eat This, Not That!, the answer is yes! “Ice cream has high levels of calcium and phosphorus, two minerals that build your muscles' energy reserves and boost your libido. All that calcium can also make you more sexually charged, since the muscles that control sexual response need calcium in order to contract properly.” But men should be aware that “too much sugar will lead to spikes and crashes in your blood glucose, ultimately sapping your testosterone levels (and your libido).”
My husband firmly believes in the health properties of ice cream; he’s quite the aficionado. So when he could combine one of his favorite foods with a blush-worthy name in an area like Dupont Circle that’s great for people watching, he knew Larry’s Ice Cream would be perfect for an out of town guest. In fact, our friend orders Libido ice cream whenever she is in town! Next time you have an out of town guest, or someone you’d like to egg on a little, head to Larry’s Ice Cream in Dupont Circle and order Libido ice cream.
