Confessions of a sensimilla slut

The Datura flower as a drug has been mainly
used throughout the Middle Ages by sorcerers,
shamen, poisoners, and oddly, pimps:

“Datura flowers were commonly sold for their
aphrodesiac qualities all over central and
southern Europe. they had the reputation of
breaking down any resistance to sexual
approaches. Pimps in particular knew how to
use the herb to their own best advantage. An
indignant German writer aptly documents this
common use of Datura, which he describes as: “a
tool of brothel-keepers, wicked seducers of
girls, depraved courteseans and shameless
lechers.”

I keep Datura Noir, nocturnal perfume it is,
decanted in a bisque owl bottle my boyfriend
bought me in Germany. It sits alone in its
decanter on my fireplace mantel, separated
from all the “nice” perfumes by several rooms.
