Oysters have long been called nature’s most potent aphrodisiac. Aphrodisiacs are substances purportedly able to cause sexual excitement or desire through chemical interaction with the body. Along with oysters, other alleged aphrodisiacs are animal testicles, rhinoceros horn, and turtle eggs. Unfortunately (or fortunately, for innocent young women), no such substance has yet to be discovered or confirmed by modern science.

Researchers have done studies on the makeup of oysters in order to determine if they contain something special that acts as an aphrodisiac. What they found was that oysters are composed mostly of water with protein, carbohydrates, a little bit of fat, and some sugar. Trace minerals were also found but nothing more. None of these substances have any sort of aphrodisiac effect.

However, just because there is no chemical basis for oysters making us horny, doesn’t mean they can’t do so. It is said that the organ of the body most used for sexual excitement is the brain. Everyone has different sets of stimuli that turn them on. For some people, soft, slow music turns them on. For others, it is chocolate. For others it is a hot, sweaty, fit body. Other people like pain. Some like to be tickled. Who’s to say that for someone, oysters are not a turn on. All kinds of crazy fetishes exist, so it’s impossible to rule out that someone gains sexual excitement or pleasure from raw shellfish. Some people are very suggestive, so that if someone in authority or whom they trust tells them oysters cause sexual arousal, they may, psychologically, feel aroused.

Other substances have a closer link to being aphrodisiacs but they, too, do not totally fit the bill. Alcohol lowers inhibitions and clouds judgment so sex frequently occurs under its influence. A substance known as Spanish fly, made from a type of powdered beetle can irritate the bladder and make blood vessels in the groin enlarge, but there’s no real sexual excitement.
