Mexican Government Says ‘Yes’ to Sex and Veggies

Published by PETA.

Back in November, we were taken aback to learn that Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard planned a citywide initiative to improve residents’ sex lives by distributing free Viagra to elderly men suffering from impotence. We sent a letter to let him know that most men don’t need to pop pills to get some afternoon delight: They simply need to adopt a purely vegetarian diet.

Here’s the response from the Mexican government:

We believe that your recommendations are right in that that they promote balanced nutrition to prevent chronic degenerative diseases, thus improving the quality of life of people.

So, Viagra might be a temporary fix—if you don’t count the side effects, which can range from very uncomfy and embarrassing nether regions to a full-blown heart attack—but adopting a vegetarian lifestyle is the best long-term medicine for long, lonely nights. A vegan diet can immediately start reducing your risk of the main causes of impotence: clogged arteries to your organs. Not to mention that a healthy, vegan diet also makes for a leaner physique and increases overall energy, which can make you more attractive, gentlemen!

Yes, I think it’s true: Vegetarians so have better sex!
