VENDORS selling a new 'sex coffee' that allegedly enhances sexual performance are making brisk business on the streets of Harare.

The coffee is being sold for between $3 and $5 a sachet, depending on your negotiating skills.

Vendors who spoke to the news crew said the coffee helps men maintain an erection for long periods. It also helps them avoid premature ejaculation, they claimed.

They said the coffee is taken 15 minutes before the act and gives an individual the stamina to perform for the next 72 hours.

The claims could not be independently verified.

The vendors are targeting customers at popular joints such as KwaMereki in Warren Park suburb, Zindoga in Waterfalls and KuHuku in Hillside.

Vendors who trade at Fife Avenue Shopping centre were all in agreement that the coffee works wonders after their husbands took the drinks and they reached orgasms because of the improved performances.

"Mukoma munosiyiwa kumba uku namaiguru tengai coffee iyi munozouya muchinditenda pano, amai vanokupai sando dzenyu mukatendwa nemutupo kana muchinge mabata basa," said Angeline, a vendor.

The women who declined reveal where they buy the coffee said the demand for the product is very high.

"During the week I sell from here (Fife Avenue Shopping Centre) but at weekends I am based at Mereki and the major advantage is that you can take the coffee either with cold water or hot water. My clients include both men and women but women do not usually buy openly as they are shy to do so," said another woman who identified herself as Anna.

One man who bought the sachets said he was only doing it for a friend who requested that he brings him the product.

"No I don't use these things I am buying them for someone else," he said.

According to one medical doctor who spoke on condition of anonymity, the problem of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation is quite widespread in Zimbabwe.
