As we get older our sex life may go down hill ?We do not have the "get up and go" of years before.We are not a strong as we once were ?Sure we may wax lyrical down the pub to our peers of how much of a love god we are ?
But help may be at hand(not in the real sense) I hasten to add!
Onthophagus taurus is a type of dung beetle and has been named as the contender for the title of the world's strongest insect.It can pull a load 1,141 times it's own body weight.The equivalant of a human pulling six fully laden double decker buses.
The strength according to the insect experts is down to it's curious sex life.Apparently Female beetles dig tunnels where males mate with them.If a male enters a tunnel already occupied by a rival,they lock horns and try to push each other out.
How does this help us ?I would suggest sneaking into in the dead of night,your local insect emporium and nabbing a few.Take these home and while your partner lounges back on the bed(It matters not what sex your partner may be),put a few around the entry to your bedroom.Then tape two forks to your head and go down on all fours and get the buggers out.This will help you get stronger and make your partner moan with longing over your macho stance.Also you can cook the beetles for a post coitus snack.
Hey no one said it was going to be all angling.
Lastly to the three chaps who were spotted angling out of season for Barbel on the Wye today.Pack it in you have been warned!!
