Ho, ho, no! Looks like Santa's been indulging in a little too much eggnog:

How does milk (and other animal products) contribute to impotence? The saturated fat and cholesterol in even so-called low-fat 1 or 2 percent milk (which are actually about 20 and 30 percent fat calories, respectively) clogs the arteries leading to all your organs, not just your heart. Milk is also loaded with female hormones, since cows are kept almost constantly pregnant on today's dairy factory farms. One Harvard University scientist estimates that cow's milk accounts for up to 80 percent of the estrogen in the average person's diet.
So if you want to keep Mrs. Claus happy, better make it soy or almond milk with those cookies on Christmas Eve. Otherwise, Rudolph might be the only one who gets up in the air this holiday season.

What do you do when a U.K. survey reveals that some lasses are suffering under the misapprehension that eating meat is "manly"? You show off a slew of veggie-powered super-studs and let the ladies decide for themselves. Here ya go, and you're welcome.

Maybe they were afraid that PETA's hot billboard would melt all the snow. Two sign companies refused to post the billboard that we wanted to erect prior to the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and National Cattlemen's Beef Association Trade Show in Denver, with one of the companies calling it "too much."
We had hoped to remind the cattlemen that impotence can be caused by artery blockage. Physicians and nutritionists agree that the best way to keep from clogging your arteries with the cholesterol and saturated fat found in meat and dairy products is to eat a diet high in fiber, including plenty of fruit, vegetables, beans, and whole grains.
Well, fine, if the cattlemen don't get the message, then I guess there will just be fewer cattletots running around. We're sure the cows won't complain about fewer cowpokes.
Want to have sex that's oh-so-good for you and the environment? Check out author Stefanie Iris Weiss' passionate page turner Eco-Sex. Your go-to guide to everything from eco-cosmetics to scentillating natural perfumes, the eco-sexpert recently revealed these erotic Earth- and animal-friendly "commandments" in an article for The Huffington Post.
My favorite is Commandment 6: Thou shalt not eat meat if thou wants to get busy between thy sheets. Everyone knows that a vegan diet gives you extra stamina and a sizzling physique and helps guys "keep up" with the Johnsons, but who knew that vegan aphrodisiacs such as licorice can spice up your love life?!
Which of these tips do you find the most tantalizing?

Ladies, if you'll give me a moment alone with the men …?
OK, I know this is kind of an uncomfortable subject, but just between us guys, it's important that you know about this new study, which found that a diet high in saturated fat—which is abundant in meat and dairy products—can damage your sperm. Dude, I know, right? So unless you want your little guys in top hats to be walking with a permanent limp, it's time to man up and go vegan. Not only will it help keep your little buddies healthy, it can also help keep your love life lively, as these fellows discovered.

Take one look at British reality TV star Chantelle Houghton's new PETA U.K. ad and you'll want to nip meat-induced impotence in the bun:
Men who eat artery-blocking carcasses may have trouble with their love life, but if you go vegan, the only thing that you won't raise is your risk for diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and cancer.

Psst! Have your hair and your love life lost their luster?
According to Bolivian President Evo Morales, eating flesh from chickens that have been given female hormones could make men go bald and have "problems being men."
When chickens are given hormones, as they are in so many countries, it gives credibility to Morales' chrome-dome claim, and there are hard facts that eating meat causes impotence. And for another mood killer, if you catch your man rooting around in your bra drawer, it might be because he needs the support: Consuming meat and milk laced with estrogen and other hormones may contribute to the development of "moobs."
Thanks for your advice, Mr. President. For even more presidential advice on all things animal-related, pick up a copy of PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk's latest book, The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights.
To reference Idol judge Randy Jackson, seven-time Cy Young Award–winning pitcher Roger Clemens is a bit pitchy in the bedroom. According to his mistress, Mindy McCready, "The Rocket" (ironically) suffers from "a lot of problems" with erectile dysfunction. Now, PETA's got a pitch that may help him, his sexual partners, and animals: Go vegan! We even sent him a copy of our vegetarian/vegan starter kit to help get him started.
Doctors and nutritionists agree that the best way to prevent artery blockage as well as other conditions that cause impotence is to eat a diet high in fiber, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Nobody likes to rubber-arm in the bedroom, and these foods will scrub the plaque off Clemens' arterial walls to get him back on top of his game in no time.
Whether you call it veggie Viagra or a legal performance enhancer, going vegan won't just get you through the night—it will get you through life.

Things that nonbelievers thought were never going to happen but did: "Octomom" saying "Yes" to our spay-and-neuter billboard, the Large Hadron Collider smashing proton beams into one another, and (drumroll, please) author, social entrepreneur, and longtime vegetarian Michael Mann agreeing to donate his half of the hotly sought-after $50 million domain Sex.com to PETA (pending IRS approval of this tax-deductible donation, of course).
Mann's offer to donate his share of Sex.com has us poised to tell the world that a vegan diet supports a lifetime of good health and great sex. If all goes as planned, visitors to the new site will see our sizzling ads such as "Veggie Love" and get information that will help turn on carnivores to the power of "veggie Viagra." Mike's generosity makes everyone a winner: He'll score a huge tax write-off, meat-loving men who tend to limp through their later years (thanks to their artery-clogging diets) will learn how to make their sex lives sizzle by going vegan, and countless animals will be saved from the horrors of factory farms and slaughterhouses.

Men who can't get it up down there, beware: A new study suggests that those who suffer from erectile dysfunction "are twice as likely to succumb to cardiovascular disease or heart attacks as those who do not have the problem." German researchers say that since penile blood vessels are smaller than those in the heart, atherosclerosis appears in the penis a few years before it reaches your ticker.
Finally, someone's listening. Guys, we've told you that the saturated fat and cholesterol in meat, dairy products, and eggs clogs your arteries and slows the blood flow to all your organs, making you a Sally in the sack and increasing your risk of dying young from a heart attack. Not only does going vegan save the lives of more than 100 animals a year, it also gets your blood flowing and your love life going.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
