Young Men, Healthy who Take Dick Pills Develop a Psychological Addiction (Duh)
A recent study found that when young, otherwise healthy men used erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra and Cialis excessively, they develop a psychological addiction to the pills.
Keep in mind that the men in the study averaged about 22 years of age, and they were taking the ED pills “recreationally” — they didn’t have anything wrong with their wangs. (I’m pretty sure that’s how the grant proposal was written.)
Christopher Harte, the lead study author, said, “the more frequent ED medicine use was associated with lower confidence in achieving and maintaining erections, which in turn was associated with lower erectile function.”
The irony is that excessive use to Viagra or Cialis leads to erectile dysfunctions by the association of the pills with a boner, apparently. The use of the drugs may have the men developing “unreasonable expectations” as to their sexual performance, Harte opines.
Young men? On drugs that makes them go from hard for hours to hard for probably most of the day? And that leads to unreasonable expectations?
You don’t say…
Google thinks a Sex Party is a Sex Party
A Sex Party candidate in Australia (as in, a political party, not an orgy) is crying foul over the way Google is treating the party’s advertising on its site.
Fiona Patten, who was in the running for a state seat in Melbourne, said Google refused to run her ads because they were too racy. The company pulled the party’s ads during the last election, and continued its policy to Patten’s latest run.
You’d think that the Sex Party would be all for blowjobs for everyone. You’d think that, you’d be wrong. Patten’s platform is made up of more innocuous planks like drug law reform and 24 hour public transport on weekends in the inner-city. In fact, screen grabs of her ads feature racy text like “24 hr City – 24 hr Public Transport,” and “Choice, Freedom and Responsibility.”
So much for free blowjobs. Politics can suck the fun out anything, even a sex party
Though Google ultimately allowed the ads, they ran a few days before the election.
“It’s giving me the shits that in two elections we’ve not been able to run ads with Google when all of the other political parties have had no problem,” she said.
Olympians Like to Fuck. No kidding.
Imagine this: you’re young, you’re one of the top physical specimens on the planet and you’ve been spending the last couple of years training and competing at a world class level.
Are you horny? Does Maury keep paternity test labs in champaign and caviar?
Apparently, the general horniness of Olympians and the general, all around fucking that goes hand in hand with putting them all together in a “village” is news to the press.
Though past athletes stuck to a cliched party line of “what happens in the village stays in the village” (which is also applicable to that god-awful M. Night Shyamalan movie and the Smurfs), it’s pretty clear that anytime anyone tries to be clever with a tagline developed by Las Vegas marketers is admitting there’s lots of debauchery going on.
“If they gave a gold medal for sex in 2000, it would’ve gone to American javelin thrower Breaux Greer. His roommate, shotputter John Godina, said each day three different women visited him,” John Henderson writes in a Denver Post blog.
Then again, if you’re a javelin thrower, I suppose the only time anyone pays attention to who you are is during the Olympics.
