World's Strangest Aphrodisiacs

Rhino Horn

Photoshot Holdings Ltd/Alamy

Rhinoceros Horn
Africa and China

The demand for powdered rhino horn—a singularly potent symbol of power and sexual prowess—has sadly caused the near decimation of the black rhinoceros species in Africa. Most typically used (illegally) in Chinese medicine and in northern Indian tribes, the horn is ground up and served in a soup.

Where to Find It: Rhino horn is, for good reason, illegal. Most often poached in Africa, the major—and unfortunately, increasing—demand is in Asia.
