Since the dawn of time, people have believed in aphrodisiacs: foods, drinks or other things that stimulate desire. In ancient Japanese bordellos, courtesans made an aphrodisiac oil from eels, lotus roots and charred lizard to stimulate their clients. Montezuma, the Ancient Aztec ruler, was said to guzzle 50 cups of chocolate in advance of visits to his harem. It took just one oyster for Casanova to seduce a virgin. Or so the legends go.
