he US Food and Drug Administration has decided to put more prominent warnings of potential hearing loss on impotence drugs Viagra, Cialis and Levitra....The warnings followed what the administration called "a very small number" of patients reporting hearing loss and at times ringing in the ears and dizziness.

Some guys might think of that as a 'side-benefit' rather than a side-effect, per se: more sex, less nagging--can't be all bad. :lol:

Side note: My husband and I were playing Scrabble the other day, and I formed the word 're-nag', which my husband denied was even a word but which was worth about 26 points under the circumstances of the game. When he challenged me, I asked him what word he'd use to describe the action of nagging one's husband more than once. He had no answer. I got the 26 points.

Re-nag (def): the act of getting after one's husband a second or third time after the first time didn't work. (Used in a sentence): After I asked my husband to take out the trash last night, he just sat on the couch and watched football, so I had to re-nag him about it this morning.

Re-nag :D

The Viagra side-effects I am aware of are:
1.Seeing blue,
2.Dizziness,
3.Deafness...
Thats not bad at all actually.
This means, She will look like a blue alien, she will also be wavy (dizziness) and finally you wont hear her complimenting/thanking you on your fine performance............I can live with that.

Either give in on the word or be re-nagged about all not long.

...and so we can confidently include re-naging in the list of associated side effects.

Kind regards

So, Rush can't hear his ditto-head fans?

ETA: That must be every woman's nightmare - the sight of Rush entering the bedroom armed with a bottle of Viagra.

It just struck me that Viagra is the male equivalent of the face lift and the tummy tuck. Perhaps the breast implant.

Women can always hope for the one side-effect to kick in: heart attack.

Sure the hearing loss isn't associated with all the noise she's making? ;)

OK!! OK!! So I'll only take it until I need a hearing aid. What was that you said? :lol:

Peferably before the other effect.

I still quite haven't figured out why men should seek medical attention in the event the intended effect lingers for several hours...

I'm trying to picture the 911 call for that one.

For the love of God, send help, I'm dying here! She won't stop!!

If you are talking about priapism, my understanding is that this can be quite painful.

I'm not a guy, so I wouldn't know--unless you are talking about the lingering effects of all my re-nagging. :lol:

Priapism can do permanent damage, it's not meant to stay that way for so long. There needs to be a recovery period, that's what cuddling is for.

priapism aka. adolescent male effect

Permanent damage indeed. When speaking of this, if you have one of those things, you will reflexively cross your legs. Tight.

The turgidity comes from blood being held under pressure in spongy tissue. If that valve isn't opened and the blood allowed to return to circulation, thrombosis and later gangrene can set it. IOW, it will rot and fall off and probably kill you in the process.

To take it down in the worst case, if it doesn't respond to the initial procedures, they have to well, stick needles in there and make openings to let the blood out.

And all the XY types reading this now have their legs tightly crossed with a wince on their face.

And, believe or not, there is a similiar condition in women involving their own little piece of similiar tissue. It is extremely rare, but it can happen.

I think I'd rather take the hearing loss.

Actually, I'll avoid the stuff altogether.

Hee, hee. If you really want to cross your legs, do some directed Googling on "medical oddities" involving mishaps with this particular appendage.

It can be broken when turgid, for instance.......wince. And generally, victims of these sorts were usually doing something very embarassing (maybe even illegal in some states) and delay seeking treatment, making things worse. Much worse.

And since we're on this subject, one that must be mentioned involved the Rasputin. Put "Rasputin" + the term for the appendage in question, and you will find an interesting story. Whether it is true or not is in dispute. Rasputin had a rather powerful hold on women it was said, and this may explain that. Apparently his murderers were so incredulous, they had to preserve it for posterity. 30cm.

And that reminds me of a tale of undertaker who was similiary impressed with one of his charges, and just had to preserve it. The dead man's name was Fred. He took it home and snuck up on his wife with it, hoping to scare her. When she saw it, she simply said, "Fred, not now, my husband will be home any minute now!"
