A doctor has urged people to not put hot sauce in a used condom to avoid pregnancies.
Following bizarre online rumours that Drake used hot sauce to prevent condom tampering, Dr Earim Chaudry has spoken out.
The medical director of men's health platform Manual said it shouldn't be a way to "spice things up" in the bedroom.
He said: "I cannot stress enough that nobody should be using hot sauce with condoms, or any other contraceptive device at all.
"Many people find introducing food into the bedroom an effective way of spicing things up, hot sauce should not be one of them.
"Hot sauce contains a chemically active component which sets off the receptors in our brain as those triggered when we are burnt."
He added: "Areas that come into contact with hot sauce can suffer from serious pain and inflammation.
"There are around 4,000 nerve endings in a penis, and more than double at the tip of a clitoris.
"Secondly, there is no medical evidence I know of that suggests hot sauce is effective as a spermicidal agent.
"Spermicides are solutions that block the female cervix in the vagina, and also slow down the rate at which sperm swim."
The doctor went on to explain how spermicide is often part of the lubricant that comes on packaged condoms.
He said they have a 28% failure rate which can be used as birth control along with contraceptive measures.
Dr Earim continued: "It doesn't take a medical background to know that using hot sauce as birth control is an extremely bad idea.
"But for anybody that still needs to hear it, I strongly condemn the use of any hot sauce, or any other condiment as birth control."
