I note in a report from London that a so-called 'Viagra Ice Cream' is to go on sale at Selfridges department store.
Entitled The Sex Pistol, this bespoke creation is served as an ice cream cocktail and it's claimed to have similar effects to the libido-boosting drug Viagra. It contains ingredients such as ginkgo, biloba, arginine and guarana and is served with a shot of the highly intoxicating La Fee Absinthe, so it's guaranteed to get your blood pumping. Customers are limited to one serving per person.
Matt O’Connor, founder of The Icecreamists, says: “This is the perfect après shopping treat. Just one Sex Pistol will leave you feeling energised and confident – but please, don’t pester the staff!”
The Sex Pistol costs £11.99 [about US $20] and is available to customers aged 18 and over.
Er . . . so far, so good, I guess, but I have one burning question. A lack of sexual desire is sometimes referred to as 'frigidity' - and ice-creams are nothing if not frigid! Does an allegedly 'arousing' ice-cream called 'The Sex Pistol' really make sense in that context?
