Saudis seize aphrodisiacs

Saudi Arabia has seized banned chewing gum and drops that claimed to improve male sexual performance, a Saudi newspaper reported.

The stimulants, sold discreetly by pharmacies run by "weak souls" in the conservative Muslim kingdom, were apparently smuggled from Israel, the daily al-Eqtisadiah said.

Last year, Saudi Arabia executed four Turks for trying to smuggle aphrodisiac drugs into the country. Reuters - Dubai
