A man's erectile issues should be everyone's business, don't you think?

It is vital for all of us to know who can or can't get it up anymore and why. So, before any prescription for Viagra or any other ED drug is given, a mandatory counseling session and rectal exam should be imperative-for prostate awareness.

And, although he might find the idea of a rectal exam repugnant and humiliating he would still have to sign a note of permission in order to be eligible for the services he sought. Then, of course, would come the mandatory counseling session, where a doctor, most probably a female, would explain the process to him in vivid detail, and even show him graphic pictures of a rectal exam. I guess he could object and try to refuse but he -did- sign that permission form. Of course, he is free to 'choose' to see a painful, intrusive, humiliating, unwanted and unnecessary rectal probe as rape, but really, we women know what's best for the men and for their bodies and, after all, it is for their own good.

2. Absolutely... I think they need to be on a public internet registry.... complete with....

their detailed sexual history, history of cardiac and rectal exams-- to insure that we detect early problems-- and of course, any history of inappropriate sexual behavior--including their use of pornography, 1-800 sex chat lines, and any college fraternity pranks. They need to document having seen a very graphic film detailing the complications associated with a seriously prolonged erection, for sure--for their own good, after all. The registry, "flaccidity watch" should be fully funded without delay.









(if I really need to do so)

4. And they should have to pay for it!

I don't want my tax dollars going toward some man so he can have so much sex that he can barely walk. So much promiscuous sex--why, I bet he'll want women (or men) to pay for it! <sarcasm>



It is a subject that Rush isn't going to talk about, I wonder why?

14. Pulmonary Hypertension

Sildenafil, the generic of Viagra, is used to treat pulmonary hypertension. PH can be a pretty deadly condition.

The company that makes Viagra manufactures a version of sildenafil called Revatio for use in PH treatment. It's the same thing as Viagra. Not sure of any dosage difference in the two.

7. Yes we should be very "concerned" about men's ED

And they shouldn't allow men who are married to women who are too old to have children get Viagra. Why do they need it if no children are going to be created. And if you have low sperm count, you will be denied Viagra. An erected penis should ONLY be used to create children.

9. The voice over on the commercials always SAY

"Ask your doctor if it's safe for you to have sex"

That certainly implies that a FULL work up should be forthcoming.. EKG..prostate exam..full urological exam (complete with the metal dilator thingie), and perhaps an ultrasound, just to make sure things look okay "down there"..

Gander..meat meet, sauce

32. Regular Testosterone Checkups

I think what men really should be required to do, is have regular testosterone checks done at their doctor's office to make sure their testosterone is within normal range and not to high where they may find themselves committing a rape.
Health insurance need not pay for this. That's just the cost and inconvenience of being a male to insure to women that men's levels are within safe limits.
