Some foods are considered to be aphrodisiacs merely because they are said to resemble the sexual organs (like oysters and celery) or because they are obvious symbols of fertility (eggs). While this might sound silly, poor nutrition can lead to loss to libido and malnutrition was common in ancient times. Modern science has even found some links between foods and pleasure (most notably, they've studied the power of chocolate on the brain) so we may soon find that the ancients were on to something!
