Get your bull penises while they're hot!
CANBERRA, Nov 22 (Reuter) - Australia's sex industry is attempting to stop the export of tons of bull's penises to Asia because it claims they do not really work as an aphrodisiac. "The libido-enhancing claims are fraudulent in the extreme," said Robbie Swan, a spokesman for the Eros Foundation. "They are about as much use as a bull's tongue," Swan told Reuters. The Foundation, which aims to raise the image of Australia's sex industry, has asked the trade ministry to ban the export. But Australian meat company Tenarra Pty ltd, which this year has flown 8,000 frozen bull's penises to Asia, mainly to China, was unrepentant. "We don't claim they are aphrodisiacs. Our customers just say 'they are good for the men'," said Fred McDonald, manager of the abattoir, near the Northern Territory capital, Darwin. "Some of our workers here boiled some up into a soup and they reckon they are pretty good," said McDonald. Ideally, the penises should be boiled for 48 hours into a soup, he added. The total weight of the exported penises was 5,000 tons, fetching A$31.50 (US$1.15) a kilo, plus freight, and demand is apparently insatiable. "We can't get enough of them," McDonald said. "We don't chop them off while they are alive. Most of the bulls killed are feral bulls running wild round the Northern Territory. They are jumping fences to get among the herds of good cattle and farmers want them culled out." To make full use of the product, the abattoir is now turning bull scrotum bags into a useful product -- warm holders for slipping over the base of cold cans of beer. Up to now, most so-called "stubby" holders have been made of polystyrene or rubber. "We've dried about 1,000 scrotums for holding beer cans. They make good Christmas presents. They're quite nice to touch," McDonald said. The bull penises cannot be sold in Australia as aphrodisiacs.
