I Know Why Oscar Wilde Loved the Stuff

-- By  K. Wilde in  New York, NY. USA on Tue, 7 Jul 2020 at 12:54.

To set the scene, it was my twenty-first birthday. I had gone with a boy I love to this lavish bar in Manhattan. I had read about absinthe in Oscar Wilde's writings and in Victorian literature (which I am currently studying at University) and there must have been some reason that my middle name is Wilde because I also swear by the stuff, I, too lay at the mercy of the Green Faerie. Now, this topic is more so a highlight of how Absinthe is an aphrodisiac, and I'm not going to spare anyone any delightfully wicked details, but I will, however, be...well-behaved with how I tell the story. To Continue, I was with the boy I love, and it was both of our birthdays so we went to a bar in Manhattan-- I knew from the start that they had Absinthe and that was one of the main reasons behind going, other than celebration. We made a big show of our birthdays, we got a cake with sparklers, and people around us stared as we balanced the sugar cube on the spoon and drank like lavish hedonists, giggling and hiccuping like bright young things do. Now, truth be told-- I'm both a lightweight and quite the nymphomaniac. Absinthe didn't help with either. Firstly, I came in a slow blanket of intoxication and euphoria, almost as if I had smoked marijuana and I was slowly starting to feel high. Then, suddenly, while looking across the table to my person, I had began to hyperfocus on the little things about him, his eyes, his suit, his smile. The way he sipped his own drink and the way we smiled at each other in a drunken haze. I started to feel a bit turned on just by looking at him. I pulled my dress down a little bit and fidgeted with it a little bit to try and distract myself, and my boy even noticed the blush I had on my cheeks and noted that I was giving him the (his own quote) "Fuck Me Eyes". I suppose I was and I was starting to succumb to the drink itself as it were. I began to sway a little bit to the music of the bar and the rhythm and chatter of the crowd around us, conversing at the tables around us. Suddenly, I felt the familiar fluttery feeling between my thighs, and in my stomach. I mentioned in passing that I wanted to make out with my date right then and there and he said "Well, we're in public, and at a rather fancy place... so, we're going to have to wait." and then I realized that I couldn't take it anymore and I was extremely aroused, so I excused myself to the Ladies Room to "powder my nose" and luckily for me, being in an opulent bar in Manhattan had it's perks, especially when it came to the intimacy of its lavatories. It was personal rooms with soundproof walls and the music was much more loud and pumping in the restrooms than they were in the dining hall. I thanked the heavens for such privacy. Never before have I have I wanted to... /relieve my own arousal/ in a public place. However, I was under the spell of a powerful beast, and I was technically in private, so I gave myself a pass.
My God, did I relieve myself.
I don't think I had orgasmed so hard and so frequently at once in my entire life. I was so sensitive and everything was so heightened-- I was certain that I would be too loud. Despite being able to hardly grasp onto self-control, I finished one last time, cleaned myself between my legs, flushed the toilet, and washed my hands thoroughly. I returned to my lovely man who was looked at me, concerned, asking why I had been so long in the restroom and if I was alright or ill.
I was more than alright, and my only sickness was pleasure.

H. Deniset absinthe poster
Does absinthe possess any aphrodisiac powers? This remains a hotly debated topic, though this classic poster for H. Deniset, a Pontarlier-based distillery, does suggest the company of the other sex becomes more pleasurable under the wings of the Fairy. (Poster: Musee de Pontarlier)
