Aphrodisiacs And Stimulants

When one thinks of aphrodisiacs, the image of oysters comes to mind. Yet there is no scientific evidence (short of possible pheromonal components of truffles [5a-androst-16-en-3a-ol] and celery [5a-androst-16-en-3a-one]) (1,2) that most of the traditional foods considered as aphrodisiacs have any aphrodisiac qualities at all. Alternatively, there is considerable evidence that foods can act to inhibit sexual arousal. In particular, alcohol has a marked inhibiting effect on sexual functions in both men and women (3,4). Shakespeare described, "It provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance" (5). Scientific research has just begun to investigate the aphrodisiacal effects of food on sexual arousal.
