Noun[edit]

antiaphrodisiac (plural antiaphrodisiacs)

    • 1998, Gilbert Waldbauer, Insects through the seasons, page 65:
      The males of other insects try to keep their mates faithful by daubing them with an antiaphrodisiac pheromone, a scent that mixes with the female's own scent and makes her less attractive to other males.
