Argentinean President Cristina Fernández Says Pork Better than Viagra for Sex

We all know that Argentina is famous for its meat, and we're not just talking beefcakes like Nacho Figueras (though thank you Argentina, for Nacho, too). The South American country is the world's third largest producer of red meat, but in recent years the government has been promoting pork as an alternative to beef since it costs less to produce and they want to diversify the country's meat production.

Speaking to leaders of Argentina's pig farming industry, President Cristina Fernández declared, "I've just been told something I didn't know, that eating pork improves your sex life. I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra."

Then the President went on to share a little anecdote about a recent weekend getaway she indulged in with her hubby, former head of state, Nestor Kirchner, at the couple's retreat in the southern Patagonia region. "We were in high spirits the whole weekend," she admitted with a huge smile.

"I'm a pork fanatic," she concluded, "and I'm not saying this just to impress you, or for self-promotion." We're not going to touch that last statement with a ten foot pole, cause it would be just too easy to make a silly joke. But feel free to leave your own in the comments!

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
