Heat up (and stay up) with Viagra ice cream

Molly Moon, can you make me one? Baskin Robbins, is this one of your 31 flavors? Full Tilt…aw, never mind.

It might not be happening here in Seattle, but across the pond in London, The Icecreamists are “liberating the world one lick at a time” with their introduction of a dessert called The Sex Pistol. This “vice cream” concoction has a variety of substances to get you in the mood, including arginine, biloba, guarana and ginkgo, as well as a shot of absinthe on the top. And, yes, it also contains sildenafil citrate, better known as Viagra.

This dessert will be available at the Selfridges department store starting September 10. Look for a limit of one per customer, with a minimum age of 18 to purchase. Expected cost is about $20. Not bad for a sweet…and a treat.

(Okay…this is fun and all, but one serious question remains: Why are sexual “pleasure promoters” like Viagra so praised, while “problem preventers” like condoms are so villified? Television can run ads for Viagra at any hour, but the same isn’t true for condoms. Insurance policies often cover erectile dysfunction drugs, but not birth control. Etc. This applies internationally, as seen in this recent article, as well as in the United States. I know… it’s ultimately all about gender, class, religion, etc. – topics deeper than this blog typically explores. The whole thing makes me want to just go and, well, eat ice cream.)
