Spanish Fly is a compound with a misplaced reputation in human sexual behavior, according to biologist, Thomas Eisner. This compound or chemical is called cantharidin, a notorious aphrodisiac that the male fire-colored beetle (Neopyrochroa flabellata) carries in a gland in his head, that he uses as an offering to a potential female mate.
