Cristina Fernandez, Argentinian President, Says Pork Is Better Than Viagra For Sex Life

Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez has told a gathering at her Presidential Palace that pork is even better than Viagra for spicing things up in the bedroom - and credited a satisfying weekend with her husband to the meat.

"I've just been told something I didn't know, that eating pork improves your sex life," she said in a televised speech to the leaders of the Argentinian meat industry, "I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra."

Fernandez was evidently seeking to diversify Argentina's steak-dominated meat industry when the speech turned to her sex/pork life.

Speaking of a weekend spent with her husband after eating the meat, Fernandez said, "We were in high spirits the whole weekend... I'm a pork fanatic."

Head of the association of pork producers, Juan Uccelli, backed up her claims, arguing that those in Denmark and Japan, where pork consumption is high, "have much more harmonious sexual lives than us Argentines have."
