Do Aphrodisiacs Chemically Alter Sexual Arousal and Performance?

Resources used to support "No"

The sexual properties of so-called aphrodisiacs have been proclaimed forever. The big question, however, is whether or not these substances actually alter some biological aspect of sexual desire and/or functioning. Research has shown that much of the alteration is "in one's head." This is based on one's expectation of what the substance is going to do and these "aphrodisiacs" merely act as placebos. One might say "the most powerful aphrodisiac exists between our ears."
