Indonesia’s Minister of Health has said the country should use “penis enlargement” massages to attract more tourists.
Minister Terawan Agus Putranto has announced that his country should use traditional medicine to attract more tourists to Indonesia because “foreigners will be interested”.
Local media report Putranto cited Mak Erot, a massage believed to increase the size of men’s manhood, as a way of enticing more foreigners to the country.
The massage is seemingly named after Mak Erot, an Indonesian woman widely known for helping men to lengthen their penises using traditional herbs and prayers. She died in July 2008.
Putranto has reportedly referred to the massage as “a national asset” and he has added: “We must popularise the idea of traditional medicine for tourism.”
The minister added that Tongkat Ali, a leaf believed to increase an athlete’s performance and muscle mass, and Purwaceng, a Viagra-like substance, could also be used to attract tourists.
He also said that Kerok, a technique which uses coins and menthol ointments to treat several ailments, could be attractive to tourists. Kerok sees a coin rubbed on the back skin with a menthol ointment. Local media report many believe it increases the circulation of blood and oxygen.
