Meaning of Aphrodisiac
An aphrodisiac is a substance that, when consumed, increases sexual desire. Aphrodisiacs are distinct from substances that address fertility issues such as impotence or secondary sexual (dys)function such as ED. - See link

 

Aphrodisiac in Spanish is Afrodisíaco
Un afrodisíaco es una sustancia que incrementa el deseo sexual. El término se deriva del nombre de la diosa griega del amor, Afrodita (Venus, para los romanos), divinidad relacionada con la fecundidad y la energía primaveral. A través de la historia algunas comidas, bebidas y comportamientos han tenido la reputación de hacer que el sexo sea más placentero. Sin embargo, desde el punto de vista histórico y científico, los resultados aclamados pudieron haber sido debido a que funcionaría en realidad (el efecto placebo). En concreto, la ciencia médica occidental no tiene pruebas concluyentes de que alguna comida en particular aumente el deseo o el rendimiento sexual. - See link
