You call yourself a bacon lover. But are you a bacon lover?
Baconlube is exactly what it sounds like -- the world's first bacon-flavored personal lubricant and massage oil.
According to J & D's -- makers of such beloved bacon-based products as Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, Bacon Lip Balm, and Mmmvelopes (envelopes that taste like bacon. These guys are GENIUSES.) -- baconlube was never actually intended to be a real product. It began as an elaborate prank for April Fool's Day.
But after the joke was over, a good portion of the public -- more than 3,000 people, J & D's says -- apparently thought the prospect of bacon-flavored sex was so enticing that they harassed the company until they decided to make it a real thing.
