Viagra Sausages Are for Real, and Here's Why You Should Eat Them for Breakfast

These morning treats will really get you going.

"Good morning. Want a Viagra sausage?"

If someone said that to you, would you run for the hills—or say YES?

The creators of SOS Viagra Sausages are betting you'll want to give their meat products a shot. Their sausages are designed to get your morning off to a solid start, in more ways than one. While there’s no actual Viagra in these sausages, they do contain a mix of products considered to have similar effects: Think L’Arginine, Horny Goat Weed and Korean, Red Chinese and Siberian Ginseng. The packaging calls it "natural Viagra."

But before you think this is another our-food-turns-you-on gimmick (We’re looking at you,  Stiff Bull Coffee, which claims their coffee gets men aroused), these sausages were created for a good cause: To raise awareness of issues impacting men’s health, specifically depression, and to inject a dose of humor into the outreach campaign. 

Matt O’Connor, creator of the Save Our Sausages (aka Viagra Sausages) campaign, told The Feast: “I was a huge fan of the late Robin Williams, whose humor kept me going through dark times, and I thought that if we could get people laughing, we could get people talking about the deadly serious health issues facing men.” O’Connor is also the founder of Fathers4Justice, which lobbies for fathers to get equal access to their children after separation and divorce.

He says the sausages are getting people excited, so to speak, and helping get the message out there about issues affecting men's mental health and survival. “We’ve had an amazing response, which has generated a big conversation about the men’s health crisis," says O'Connor. "The next step for the Save Our Sausages campaign is Sausage Saturday, a national barbecue day to cook up more awareness and food for thought about male suicide, depression and other health issues."

All proceeds from the sausage sales will go to men’s health charities including Testicular Cancer Charity Check Em Lads, Andy’s Man Club, and the Veterans’ combat stress charity. For the moment, you can only buy these sausages at London's The Butchery, but with any luck they'll make their way across the pond in the near future.
