The mollusk monologues

Once upon a time in a land far away, a nude sunbather was bit in her nether regions by a horn-eyed ghost crab. 

I officially rename it horn"y"-eyed ghost crab. ;)

Said crab evidently mistook her hoo-ha for an oyster, a part of their natural diet.

After seeing the picture in the news article, I can now see why oysters are considered an aphrodisiac.

Although scientists did find oysters are rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones (testosterone and progesterone) and are high in zinc content (important for sperm production).

So if you are going to take advantageous of the libidinous and fertility-enhancing qualities of oysters, enjoy them raw.  

Cooking them will destroy the nutrients helpful for improving fertility.

Num num.
