Definition - What does Aphrodisiac mean?

An aphrodisiac is anything that increases sexual desire. It could be an object, a food, or a psychophysiological stimulant.

Kinkly explains Aphrodisiac

Simply put, an aphrodisiac is something that excites. There are many substances that are thought to be aphrodisiacs, yet due to lack of research there is little scientific evidence to support these suggestions. As such, aphrodisiacs are seldom granted medical recognition. What constitutes an aphrodisiac may also vary from person to person, as not everyone will experience increased sexual desire from the same stimulants.

Chocolate, oysters, alcohol and marijuana are all thought to be aphrodisiacs.
