Continuing a brief Icelandic theme, and a contender for bizarre story of the week.
According to the Reykjavík Grapevine (“Your essential guide to life, travel and entertainment in Iceland”) an agreement has just been signed to export a naturally occurring sex aid to Hong Kong.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Össur Skarphéðinsson to declared that the sea cucumber can be used to “power up the sexual prowess of men who are middle-aged” .
It seems that the Chinese can’t get enough of what they call the hai shen (sea ginseng) which they swear by as an aphrodisiac.
In other words it is a kind of natural Viagra and certainly sounds more exotic that using a standard land cucumber as a dildo!
