(Newser) – Pork is no longer just the other white meat, but also the other blue pill, according to Argentina's president. That’s right: porcine meat is good for your libido. “Pork consumption improves sexual activity,” Cristina Kirchner said as she announced lower meat prices. “Some nicely grilled pork is much more gratifying than taking Viagra.” And she said she has personal experience.

On a weekend getaway with her husband, Kirchner boasts, much pork was eaten, with “impressive” results. “We were in high spirits the whole weekend.” She’s not just boosting, AFP reports. “I'm a pork fanatic, and I'm not saying this just to impress you, or for self-promotion.” The head of an Argentine pork industry group happily agrees, noting that people in pork-loving countries “have much more harmonious sexual lives than us.”
