Vanilla, which comes from the pod of an orchid-like plant, is thought to be an aphrodisiac, according to Totonac folklore about a daughter of a fertility goddess who transformed herself into a plant to bring pleasure after being unable to marry a man owing to her divine nature. A 1762 German investigation confirmed this, finding that medicine containing vanilla extract helped to alleviate impotence.
