Mything Words – Aphrodisiac

by Erin on February 12, 2012

It is easy to see the influence of a goddess from Greek myth in the word aphrodisiac. And yes, if that goddess was Aphrodite, then congratulations.

The standard dictionary definition of this word is something along the lines of “exciting desire”.

This time of year, just before Valentine’s Day, it is worth noting that foods, flowers, even fantasies can be considered aphrodisiacs.
