Why are so many foods considered aphrodisiacs?



  1. 0 Votes

    A lot of foods (and other products) are purpoted or exaggerated as being aphrodisiacs to entice the consumer into purchasing the product. Simply put, sex sells. If a product or food claims to act as an aphrodisiac, many people will believe it and buy it. 

     In reality, there is little evidence to support many of the claims of certain foods as increasing or enhancing sexual libido. In fact, some consumables are downright dangerous. Spanish fly, for instance, can cause severe gastrointestinal problems.

    When it comes to aphrodisiacs, I think a placebo effect (thinking you’re consuming one) would enhance libido enough that people don’t bother to call out the sometimes ridiculous articles on aphrodisiacs pumped out by content farms. Talking about aphrodisiacs is a good way for sites to generate interest — sex AND food.
