Most roots enhance sexual response and performance.

Weston A. Price, D.D.S. (“Acid-Base Balance of Diets Which Produce Immunity to Dental Caries Among the South Sea Islanders and Other Primitive Races,” Dec. 4, 1934) wrote …
“It is of particular interest that in my studies of the South Sea Island groups taro was found to be one of the most universally and extensively used articles of food. When used with adequate primitive diets of all the island groups studied, except the Hawaiian Islands, which would include the Marquesas, Society, Cook, Tonga, New Caledonia, Fiji and Samoan Islands, the taro, which was cooked by baking in ovens consisting of heated stones covered with leaves and dirt, produced a very high level of immunity to dental caries in every instance where the groups were isolated from contact with foods of modern civilization and where they were using only their native vegetables and fruits and animal life of the sea.”
Fitz John Porter Poole (“The Ritual Forging of Identity,” Rituals of Manhood: Male Initiation in Papua New Guinea, 1998) wrote …
“There is an emphasis on male foods and substance [during the four-day Tarot Rite]. On the first day, the male initiators build a screen of boughs around the entrance of the low root house. This screen is called the ‘saliva house.’ To the right of the screen, male initiators, whose foreheads are covered with red pigment, hold taro and a special kind of ginger (both male foods). To the left, female initiators, with black pigment on their foreheads, hold soft cordyline leaves. As the novices step through the boughs, their ritual fathers rub red pigment on their foreheads. The boys are then told to eat in succession five cooked male foods: ground-dwelling bird eggs, river moss or algae, red mushrooms, toads, and land crabs. In each instance, consumption of a particular male food is followed by ingestion of taro and ginger. The boys are also rubbed with the soft leaves and are told to spit on the ground in recognition of the sacred power of these male foods, which they will now continue to eat. On the following three days, female initiators bring them cucumber, sugarcane, and cooked taro.”
