Sausages made with natural Viagra go on sale to highlight men’s health issues

Men are being encouraged to buy sausages loaded with natural Viagra - although possibly not only for the reasons you think.

The SOS Viagra sausages contain native breed pork - along with L’Arginine, Horny Goat Weed and Korean, Red Chinese & Siberian Ginseng.

These ingredients are all used to combat erectile dysfunction but it’s not the only reason they have gone on sale.

The man behind the sausages is Fathers4Justice founder Matt O’Connor, who wants the perky meat to raise awareness of more serious health issues that affect men but are often not talked about, such as low testosterone, depression, and suicide.

He said: “As a father of three boys I am deeply concerned about the public health emergency facing men.

“I hope our sausages will give people food for thought and help men break the wall of silence around these issues.”

Matt was inspired to come up with the Viagra sausages after dealing with thousands of cases of depression in men he meets through his work with the campaign group - as well as his own experience.

Fathers4Justice wants the government to appoint a Minister for Men to help combat a men’s health crisis.

The SOS sausages are available from The Butchery, 49 London Road, Forest Hill, London SE23 3TY from 9.30 am today (Thursday 29th September).

Each pack of six sausages costs £4.99 with all proceeds going to men’s health organisations.
