Objective: To study the effect of V. tessellata on the sexual behaviour of male mice and general toxicity, if any, in mice. Methods: An aqueous suspension (2 g/kg, wet wt.) or extract (water or alcohol, 200 mg/kg) of root, flower or leaf of V. tessellata was administered ( p.o.) to male mice and 1 hr, after administration their mounting behaviour was observed. The most active extract (alcohol extract of flower) was administered (50 or 200 mg/kg, p.o.) to different groups of male mice and… Expand

Effect of Hydroalcoholic Extract of Cydonia oblonga Miller (Quince) on Sexual Behaviour of Wistar Rats
The results showed that after administration of the hydroalcoholic extract of the fruits of Cydonia oblonga Miller (quince) in Wistar rats, mounting frequency and the mating performance of the rats increased highly significantly (P < 0.01). Expand
Evaluation of Aphrodisiac Activity of Buchanania axillaris (Linn.) Leaves
It is suggested that the methanolic extracts of Buchanania axillaris exert significant aphrodisiac activity on male Wister albino rats as evidenced by an increase in number of mounts and mating performance. Expand
Aphrodisiac Activity of Aqueous Extract of Phoenix dactylifera Pollen in Male Rats
Data from this study identified that the aqueous extract of Phoenix dactylifera pollen grain enhanced sexual behaviour in male rats and supported the traditional use of this plant as acclaimed aphrodisiac and for the treatment of pre-ejaculation and impotency. Expand
Effect of Aqueous Extract of Massularia acuminata Stem on Sexual Behaviour of Male Wistar Rats
The improved sexual appetitive behaviour in male rats at the doses of 500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight of Massularia acuminata stem may be attributed, at least in part, to the alkaloids, saponins, and/or flavonoids since these phytochemicals has engorgement, androgen enhancing, and antioxidant properties.

Aphrodisiac property of Trichopus zeylanicus extract in male mice.
Administration of Trichopus zeylanicus leaf (ethanol extract) to male mice stimulated their sexual behaviour as evidenced by an increase in number of mounts and mating performance, and oral administration of a single dose was found to be more effective. Expand
Marshall’s Physiology of Reproduction
There appears to be an inverse relationship between suckling frequency and the concentration of milk constituents, and caution is required in interpreting data from feral animals, both because the extent of supplementary feeding is unknown and because it is difficult to ensure that milk collection procedures have not altered the nature of the sample.
