Aphrodisia Greek aphrodisia sexual pleasures, sexual excitement. See: Aphrodisiac.

Aphrodisiac 1. Exciting the libido. 2. Any drug that arouses the sexual instinct. Aphrodisiacs are agents reputed to stimulate or excite sexual desire. Throughout the ages many foods have been considered sexual stimulants. Similar claims have been made for alcohol, amfetamines, cocaine, LSD, marijuana, morphine, opium, and mescaline. These substances break down inhibitions, the cause of much sexual malfunctioning; but if taken in large enough quantities, they diminish rather than enhance sexual capacity. Cantharides (Spanish fly) and yohimbine are also considered aphrodisiacs. The former, by irritating the genitourinary tract and concomitantly dilating the associated blood vessels, does produce a certain stimulation of the genitals, and yo-himbine stimulates the spine nerve centers that control erection.

Amyl nitrite ("poppers"), a chemical used to dilate blood vessels, is reputed to intensify orgasmic pleasure; again, valid data for aphrodisiac effects are not available. Androgens, male hormones produced by both sexes, are the only substances known to increase sexual interest, drive, and performance in both sexes. Where deficiency exists, physicians may prescribe androgen therapy to increase desire and performance without causing other behavioral changes.

Central stimulants as amfetamines and cocaine has an aphrodisiac effect and is often connected with sexual activities. When central stimulants are abused for a longer time, the pleasure of the drug kick becomes more desirable than sexual stimulation and a paradoxal effect disinterest in sexual activity can appear. In rehabilitation of cocaine and amfetamine abusers the sexual aspects are important. Sexual activities is often strongly connected with drug-taking often with multiple partners or hours of masturbating with pornography. Drug-free sex can therefore be complicated and initially cause impotence. Despite long-standing literary and popular interest in internal aphrodisiacs, few scientific studies of them have been made. Scientific research is limited to occasional tests of drugs or hormones for the cure of male impotence. Most writings on the subject are little more than unscientific compilations of traditional or folkloric material. Of the various foods to which aphrodisiac powers are traditionally attributed, fish, vegetables, and spices have been the most popular throughout history. In none of these foods, however, have any chemical agents been identified that could effect a direct physiological reaction upon the genitourinary tract, and it must be concluded that the reputation of various supposedly erotic foods is based not upon fact but upon folklore. It has been suggested that man's universal attribution of libidinous effects to certain foods originated in the ancient belief in the therapeutic efficacy of signatures: if an object resembled the genitalia, it possessed, so it was reasoned, sexual powers. Thus the legendary aphrodisiac powers of ginseng root and powdered rhinoceros horn. From Greek Aphrodite. Aphrodite. Also called Cythera. In Greek mythology, the goddess of love and beauty and the counterpart of the Roman Venus. In Homer's Iliad she is said to be the daughter of Zeus and Dione, one of his consorts, but in later legends she is described as having sprung from the foam of the sea and her name may be translated foam-risen. In Homeric legend Aphrodite is the wife of the lame and ugly god of fire, Hephaestus. Among her lovers was Ares, god of war, who in later mythology became her husband. She was the rival of Persephone, queen of the underworld, for the love of the beautiful Greek youth Adonis. Perhaps the most famous legend about Aphrodite concerns the cause of the Trojan War. Eris, the goddess of discord, the only goddess not invited to the wedding of King Peleus and the sea nymph Thetis, resentfully tossed into the banquet hall a golden apple, marked for the fairest. When Zeus refused to judge between the three goddesses who claimed the apple, Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, they asked Paris, prince of Troy, to make the award. Each offered him a bribe: Hera, that he would be a powerful ruler; Athena, that he would achieve great military fame; and Aphrodite, that he should have the fairest woman in the world. Paris selected Aphrodite as the fairest and chose as his prize Helen of Troy, the wife of the Greek king Menelaus. Paris's abduction of Helen led to the Trojan War. Probably Oriental in origin, Aphrodite was identified in early Greek religious beliefs with the Phoenician Astarte and was known as Aphrodite Urania, queen of the heavens, and as Aphrodite Pandemos, goddess of the people.
