Argentina is a land comprised of farmers who statistically consume between 68 and 73 kilos (about 145 pounds) of red meat per year, making the country among the largest consumers of beef in the world. However, they rarely eat pork.
In a nation-wide speech held at the presidential palace, president Cristina Fernandez Kirchner, much to the surprise of her fellow Argentineans, promoted the consumption of pork, stating that it was not only better than Viagra, but that she personally proved that fact.
She said in a recent meeting with representatives of the swine industry: “I didn’t know that eating pork improved sexual activity. It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra.”
Juan Uccelli, the representative of the Argentine Association of Pork Producers, confirmed Kirchner’s testimony by stating that in countries where pork is consumed regularly, such as Denmark and Japan, residents are known to have very active sex lives.
Kirchner unabashedly said: “Pork consumption improves sexual activity… I’m a pork fanatic and I’m not saying this just to impress you, or for self-promotion.”
She stated her conversion to pork became solidified over a recent weekend when she and her husband ate some roasted pork at the couple’s retreat in Argentina’s Patagonia region, and achieved, in her words, “impressive results.”
Some remain skeptical about Kirchner’s findings, and according to Amado Bechara, a specialist in sexual dysfunction: “There is no study showing that pork meat significantly improves sexual activity.”
In the meantime, Fernandez approved subsidies to keep the price of pork low despite inflation, and her government has also recently subsidized red meat producers after beef supplies sharply declined in the South American country.
