PIG fat is back in vogue as a sexual lubricant.
Experts said the trend for triple-cooked chips and other lard-based meals in fashionable restaurants meant it was only a matter of time before people started smearing lard on their genitals again.
Trend analyst Stephen Malley said: “Lard is vintage, it’s earthy and unlike petroleum-based lubes you can get a year’s worth for a couple of quid.”
Mary Fisher, from Peterborough, added: “I keep a block of lard by the bed for oiling purposes, but if we’re hungry after intercourse it’s also a great high-energy snack.
“It’s what the word ‘fistful’ was invented for.”
