back to article Pumpkin pie could prompt Thanksgiving sexual free-for-all

The US will become a seething mass of unbridled passion tomorrow, as millions of American men succumb to the penile enlargening properties of that traditional Thanksgiving dish pumpkin pie.

Another Christmas theory...

"We're guessing the results will be released in time for Christmas and will show that American women find the most erotic combination to be eggnog and roasted chestnuts."

Or expensive gifts, irrespective of the season.

Paris, because you cannot take anything with her icon seriously.

Only trouble is, the turkey puts us all to sleep!

Ever consume that much triptophan (sp?) at one sitting?

Effects of Liquorice

The only effects 'down there', that I've noticed from eating liquorice, is that it makes my urine bright yellow. This could be useful for writing my name in the snow when winter comes.

o shi!

House hold sents are leading men to objectify woman and increase the chance of sexual arousal! A pumpkin pie is just one step away from Child pornography and inevitably abusing children! Said a nameless representitive of some BS child protection lobbiest trying to line its pockets.

"vaginal blood flow" needs to be defined *very* carefully.

Maybe motherhood. Sex? Nuh-uh.

"That teachers its youngsters that having sex is like warm apple pie" Say what? You guys usually do better than that when needling Americans, but that's just plain out to lunch.

I take it you never watched American Pie??

There's an absolutely classic scene in that movie. Worth the price of a rental all on its own.

Considering most of us probably associate this scent with our grannies, you do have to wonder about those who found it stimulating.

and 'mom's pumpkin pie'

It really does say a lot -- possibly more than they'd like.

"Yo mama . . ." etc. etc. Oh, and 'motherfucker' as well.

The country that bought us the term 'MILF' - though we never knew it was thier own mums.

"Nostalgic recall"

Hmm. Getting a boner while remembering Mom's pumpkin pie is probably not something Freud would have classed as "nostalgia".

The reference to a "Pavlovian response" reminds me of something else. Certain newsagents have started giving away family-size Dairy Milk bars with newspapers. I now salivate every time I see a copy of The Daily Telegraph. Most inconvenient.

Pavlovian response?

Works for me, I'd take meringue & fresh whipped cream over a pumpkin pie any time. Especially if it was intended to be eaten

Daily Mail US Edition?

This reads like pure Daily Mail ('Red wine is good for you' [in vitro, one of the antioxidants inhibited the rate of absorbtion of xyz in a nonrelated protein - extrapolated enormously] - coming to a Mail headline near you in time for Christmas).

Shock news!

People often have sex on a holiday and get aroused when reminded of it!

Research - nice work if you can get it.

Does Pumpkin pie have the same effect on the brits?

- as it has no particular associations and isn't widely eaten.

Sounds like a joint university program to me

31 Americans get the hots for pumpkin. At least they'll be easy to spot at the greengrocers.

Re:Same effect on the Brits?

I was wondering the same thing. Perhaps have a pumpkin pie night at a gay club and see what happens? If you need a volunteer to measure them up...

I'll also gladly volunteer to examine the results on clitoral blood flow. I'm an equal opportunities pervert.
