What is the Aphrodisiac

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

An aphrodisiac is a substance that stimulates sexual arousal when consumed. The word aphrodisiac comes from the Greek ἀφροδισιακόν, aphrodisiakon meaning “sexual” or “of or pertaining to Aphrodite“.

Substances that have the opposite effect are called anaphrodisiac.
