News on male sexuality

Here are a few recent news articles on male sexuality I thought you might find interesting. I am not endorsing anything you read here nor am I offering professional advice. Just a mix of entertainment and education.

  • Queen Elizabeth II Knights ‘Father of Viagra’, Dr. Simon Campbell– Dr.Simon Campbell worked for Pfizer for 26 years, working to develop drugs to help with high blood pressure. By accident, they developed what came to be known as Viagra. “Campbell co-wrote the preliminary research proposal but even that didn’t include a mention of erectile dysfunction as one of the conditions the drug hoped to take care of. He didn’t sulk about it either, saying he was in New York when Viagra was launched, right on his birthday in March 1998.”


  • Vitamin D Highlights: A Bedroom Boost– “In a study of 143 men, Alessandra Barassi, MD, of University of Milan in Italy, and her colleagues found that those with severe erectile dysfunction (ED) had significantly lower vitamin D levels than those with mild ED, and that deficiency was worse in those with arteriogenic ED than in non-arteriogenic ED.”



  • Sex Question Friday: How Many Men Have Paid for Sex? – “…the most recent results suggest that about 1 in 10 guys today have paid for sex before. However, it is important to note that the odds of purchasing sex seem to be decreasing in each successive generation because the number of people who reported having ever paid for sex is even lower among younger guys than it is among older guys.”

    You raise such a good point about supplements. And I kind of like this potpourri approach. Nothing to add, though.

      Thanks Carol. Supplements can be wonderful but the vast majority are either useless or dangerous. It’s something I write about for a client and it’s been a real eye-opener.

    So many links to so many great articles.

    I don’t know much about male supplements whether they’re prescriptions or OTC, but I know that counterfeits and questionable ingredients are problematic. I talked to a guy a while ago who runs some online retail sites. He’s had the FBI come in and clear his inventory of supplements that had questionable products they claimed they did now have. The owner is happy to get those products out of his inventory. Supplements are popular, but not worth it if they contain illegal or harmful ingredients.

    As for my lack of knowledge about enhancement drugs and supplements … it’s because Parrot doesn’t use them and I haven’t been with anyone for a long enough time in the distant past who has used them. I just know that some guys will try all kinds of crazy things before they see a doctor.

    I think there’s a story about that I need to write.

      Bobbie, it does sound like you have a story to write. The drug supplement industry is growing–it’s astonishing how many people take supplements–and amazing how bad many of them are. I would urge any man who’s having beginning issues with erections to check out the Private Gym I wrote about–safe and simple and legit!

    Interesting developments. The vitamin D is of particular interest as I’ve been without the sun for a bit. Better get on that.

      Hi Daniel. The neat thing about that one is that it’s fairly easy to add Vitamin D…the standard recommendation is 20 minutes of sunlight a day, though you can also add vitamins and D-enriched milk. So go for it! Thanks for stopping in. Just noticed that you live in Alaska; I’m guessing sunlight is a rare thing.
