MALACCA: The aphrodisiac liquid for women being sold here is “potentially fatal” and lab tests are needed to verify its actual contents.

State Health, Sports and Anti-Drugs Com­mit­tee deputy chairman Datuk Ng Choon Koon said as such, the people should not consume the liquid due to its possible side effects.

He said the main concern was that the li­quid sex stimulant could contain the highly toxic cantharidin or Spanish fly, which was banned in several countries.

“When mixed with water, the liquid can irritate the genital tract.

“We need to conduct a laboratory test to determine the actual concoction of the ampoules peddled here by foreigners,” he said yesterday.

The Malacca Health Department and the police are now working closely to track down itinerant peddlers from Thailand and seize the liquid to conduct tests.

“We believe they are still here peddling the substance in public areas,” he said.

The Star reported yesterday that the stimulant was sold in ampoules at RM30 each by peddlers from Songkla, Thailand.

A peddler claimed that the stimulant was made from various herbs with minimal drugs that would trigger sexual urges in women when mixed into a drink.
