Passion on a plate-lust after food to make you lust after each other.

(SPOT.ph) Named after the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite, aphrodisiacs were believed to arouse sexual desire since ancient times.

Here are 10 popular aphrodisiacs to feast on and where you can get an ample serving of passion on a plate.
