He said the bug must be swallowed alive 15 minutes before the start of sexual activity for it to be effective.
“The effect is as if we are running in a marathon non-stop,” claimed the 45-year-old man, who said he started eating queen termites seven years ago.
Abdul Rahim claimed the price of a queen termite can be as high as between RM2,500 and RM5,000, depending on its size and colour.
He said that he once pocketed RM7,000 by selling three queen termites.
Well-known gynaecologist Datuk Dr Ismail Thamby, however, brushed off Abdul Rahim's claim as just a myth.
“If there is any effect, it is only psychological in nature because the person who eats it believes it works,” he said.
