Someone filled these sausages with herbal viagra


Sausages don’t ask for much by way of seasoning. A dash of mustard, a splash of ketchup you don’t have to go overboard to make them tasty.

Except, somebody did go overboard. They put herbal viagra in them.

UK charity Fathers4Justice which campaigns for equal contact for divorced parents with children is behind the bold move.

In a YouTube video, Fathers4Justice founder Matt O’Connor explained that the viagra-infused sausages are intended to raise awareness about men’s health issues.

“The #SaveOurSausages campaign is a humorous way of addressing deadly serious issues surrounding men’s health,” O’Connor said.

“There is a health crisis in this country,” O’Connor continued, citing male suicide, depression and low testosterone as men’s health issues that aren’t often discussed.

This isn’t the first time the topic of male suicide has been raised as an overlooked issue. In March of this year, a suicide prevention charity urged men to grow sideburns as part of the ‘Sides of March‘ a month-long even to raise awareness about male suicide the biggest killer of men under the age of 45. In August, celebrities including Ricky Gervais participated in a global social media campaign encouraging men to open up about mental health and suicide.

The sausages created atThe Butchery in Forest Hill, London are made from free-range rare breed pork from Abergavenny, Wales. The sausages are infused with ginseng, arginine and horny goat weed three natural remedies believed to help with erectile dysfunction.

O’Connor described the ingredients as necessary to “give the sausage that extra sizzle it needs”.

All proceeds raised from the sausages will go tomens health organisations, includingveterans’ mental health charity Combat Stress, male depression charity Andy’s Man Club and testicular cancer charity Check ‘Em Lads.

Packs of six sausages are available from The Butchery in Forest Hill, London, for 4.99 ($6.47).

Fathers4Justice cook up their Save Our Sausages campaign

SOS Viagra Sausages launched as part of men’s health campaign

Men's campaigner, Matt O’Connor, launches Viagra Sausages this Thursday 29th September as part of his new Save Our Sausages (SOS) campaign aimed at cooking up awareness about what he says is an alarming public health emergency facing men.

Inspired by his own experience with depression and the thousands of cases he has been made aware of through his Fathers4Justice work, the SOS sausages will be launched at acclaimed British butchers The Butchery, 49 London Road, Forest Hill, London SE23 3TY at 9.30 am on Thursday, ahead of National Sausage Month in October.

Made to a special recipe, including native breed pork, seasoning and natural Viagra (L’Arginine, Horny Goat Weed and Korean, Red Chinese & Siberian Ginseng), a pack of 6 handmade sausages costs £4.99.

All proceeds will be donated to men’s health charities including Testicular Cancer Charity Check Em Lads http://www.checkemlads.com, Andy’s Man Club http://andysmanclub.co.uk and the Veterans’ combat stress charity http://www.combatstress.org.uk

The F4J founder from Clapham, who has previously spoken about his own depression, says the sausages are a humorous way of addressing deadly serious issues like depression, suicide, low testosterone, cancer and violence in men.

Said O’Connor: “As a father of thee boys I am deeply concerned about the public health emergency facing men.”

“Funnily, the new series of Cold Feet has helped hundreds more men and the people they love come forward and talk to us about it and in more ways than one, Pete Gifford’s struggle in the plot chimed with my own experiences. It made me think now is the time to do something about it, and to do something with humour, to help more people open up and talk. That is the vital first step that helped me.

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

F4J is calling for the government to appoint a Minister for Men to co-ordinate a government response to the crisis.
