An aphrodisiac is a type of food or drink that has the effect of making those who eat or drink it more aroused in a sexual way. The name comes from the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

Some things thought by some to be aphrodisiacs are ginko, ashwaganda, oysters and chocolate.

A food or drink that makes a person less aroused is called an anaphrodisiac.
