“If you want to boost your sex drive, come to this road!” These are the words of Thuso Fofa, a 32-year-old herbalist from Dibete. A stretch of 22km from Dibete village along the A1 Road has become the largest market for sex herbs in Botswana and the sellers say the business is booming.

More sellers are now lining up the road to meet the growing demand for the product. A view through the window of a passing vehicle shows the main product in bottles full of red liquid in makeshift stands on the left side of the road when heading up north. But what is inside these bottles?

The Monitor team took the ‘22km Sex Drive’ market and toured the various stands along the roadside and compiled a list of herbs according to their sellers. Fofa and his mate, Gofaone Odirile both from Mmatahite cattle post took time to assist in the compilation. The men gave us the colourful names of their herbs that come from various plant species together with their benefits.
