Sex and the plants

Sex and the piante ricettario di un donnaiolo (da un codice medievale tedesca, 1275)
The ancient manuscript was one of the old papers found during the inspection carried out in the cell of a not-long-before deceased monk who was thought to hold rather inappropriate relations with local female parishioners when alive.


 Once cornered, he had admitted he accidentally found it on the bottom of an abandoned chest inside the crypt: after reading its contents, he decided not to tell his superiors and to use it to more successfully seduce the devout local girls who attended the parish.
According to the humble peddler, the indecent event was immediately submitted to the Church authorities, who didn’t really make a big deal out of it (the bold monk was probably just given a good lecture), but rather soon acknowledged the remarkable value of the finding: a Medieval document; a precious source of information on pharmaceutical knowledge in the XIII century in the field of sex, given the wide range of ingredients and both erotizing and anaphrodisiac plants mentioned in the (perhaps a little imaginative) journal, for some unknown reason forgotten on the bottom of an old chest.
Any pharmacodynamic grounds related to the potions dealt with in Hyeronimus from Bingen’s spicy journal (which will never exceed the limit of decency) shall be indicated as “notes” (*) and provided with commentary delivered by an expert.
