In addition to having a penchant for Condoleezza Rice, his crew of female bodyguards and his Ukrainian nurse, it turns out that Muammar Gaddafi also had a thing for Viagra.

According to The Sunday Times, Faisal, a 29-year-old who served as the leader's chef and servant for seven years (he applied the dictator's makeup and dyed his hair), said that Gaddafi took so many of the little blue pills that a nurse once warned him that he needed to take it down a notch.

All of this Viagra was apparently necessary for his voracious sexual appetite.

From The Sunday Times, via The Australian:

"There were four or sometimes five women each day," Faisal said. "There were so many. They had just become a habit to Gaddafi. They would go into his bedroom, he would have his way with them and then he would come out, like he had just blown his nose."

Gaddafi, who was killed last month near his hometown of Sirte, reportedly hired Faisal after the dictator spoke at Tripoli University, where the young man was studying law, The Australian reports.

In April, the U.S. envoy to the United Nations said that some Gaddafi loyalists had been given Viagra to assist in the raping of women for punishment, according to Reuters. The Associated Press said in June that the office of the chief prosector for the International Criminal Court launched an investigation into the report.

After Gaddafi was deposed from office in August 2011, several of his former bodyguards came forward with allegations of sexual assault. Some of the women alleged that they had been raped by as many as 20 men.

Gaddafi isn't the first head of state to be linked to Viagra. Time magazine reported in 2009 that Umberto Bossi, an Italian politician who served in Silvio Berlusconi's cabinet, spoke about the former Italian prime minister's fondness for the drug.
