Do aphrodisiac foods really exist?

In the collective imagination, there are many foods that are believed to possess aphrodisiac properties. Among these, we find chilli pepper, oysters, strawberries, lobsters, nutmeg, ginger, ginseng and saffron. To date, most studies have disproven correlations between the consumption of these foods and an increase in sexual desire. However, some foods may behave as a sort of placebo, through the power of suggestion (due to associations with delightful past episodes, such as the first dinner with the partner) and may actually lead to an increase in libido.
