Venus Drug - Illegal love drug featured on episode No. 6 "Mudd's Women" on the sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69.

Venus Drug

The ruby red Venus Drug fooled the senses by enhancing a person's physical attributes-giving men more muscles and women more curves. A space smuggler named Harcourt Fenton "Harry" Mudd was found to be in the possession of the Venus Drug when apprehended transporting three women that he hoped to sell as wives to settlers on distant planets. He gave the Venus Drug to the women to make them more desirable, but their sudden allure soon faded without the assistance of the drug.

Eve McHuron (Karen Steele) one of Mudd's women unknowingly took a placebo dose of the Venus Drug and discovered her inner beauty still shined through even without the aid of the reality altering substance. As Kirk reminded Eve, "You either believe in yourself or you don't."

TRIVIA NOTE: On episode No. 146 "The Call of the, Like, Wild" on the sitcom THE MANY LOVES OF DOBIE GILLIS/CBS/1959-63, a chemical mixture makes Maynard G. Krebs (Bob Denver) irresistible to women.  See also -"Granny's Love Potions"
