Creator Of Boy Butter Completes Record Swim In World’s Saltiest Body Of Water

blogger-image-240545703Last Friday, Eyal Feldman, founder of popular lubricant Boy Butter — as if I had to tell you what it was — completed a 1.2 mile swim in the Dead Sea, according to a post by Eyal Feldman on the Boy Butter Blog (you’d need some lube just to say that three times fast).

Feldman, apparently a “long time marathon swim enthusiast”, said he did the swim “just to see if it could be done.” The Dead Sea — one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water and Earth’s lowest elevation on land bordering Israel, Palestine and Jordan — is nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean and is so dense with salt that swimming is similar to floating.

But Feldman managed to slip right through it like a hot boy knife through boy butter, completing the stunt in 35 minutes — what, he claims, may be a world record.

Though swimming in the Dead Sea is encouraged for health and holistic reasons, it’s also considered the second most dangerous place to swim in Israel. Many think it’s impossible to drown in the Dead Sea thanks to how thick and molassy it is, but in 2010, 21 people had to be pulled to safety by lifeguards.

Not Eyal Feldman.  The “dozens of people” who are drowned every year made “this a super fun challenge.” Feldman apparently avoided getting salt poisoning as well, so I can only assume that the amount of Boy Butter he’s exposed to on a daily basis soaked up all of that gorgeous sea salt.

Killing two birds with one stone, if he was feeling peckish after his swim, Eyal could’ve just scraped down his skin and spread it on some toasted buns. Delish.

      He used to come into my office sometimes. It seemed like he was 8 foot tall. My jaw dropped and my pants stretched every time I saw him. I never saw him in a speedo, but now I can’t think of anything else.

      I can’t figure out why this is such a big deal.

      @Polaro: Only because he’s a hot guy. If he was not hot, it wouldn’t be.
