The Argument

Magic designed to cause feelings of love has been an important part of many cultural attitudes to love. Love spells were relatively common in Ancient Greek and Roman societies. Court records of love potions-turned-accidental-poisonings indicate that love potions were not unusual.[1] Love spells were largely considered masculine endeavours, cast on the recipients of male lust.[2] Love magic has been a part of multiple other disparate cultures since this time. Records of love spells have been found in 15th century England[3] and 18th century Russia.[4] Magic spells have been regarded throughout time and place as a viable path towards a deep, mutual love. It is the perfect way to create positive energies and to for one to receive back the love they are giving out.
