Bite me

Viagra is one of the biggest success stories in the world of pharmaceuticals, which says something about the priorities of the general public. 

An alternative to Viagra is the venom of the Brazilian wandering spider, which apparently causes priapism of about 2 hours. What this article doesn’t make clear is whether or not the site of the bite is important. Does it have to be at the required site of action, or is it a systemic effect.

Pharmacology apart I can’t think of anything less likely to induce a hard on than the prospect of a big hairy spider biting you on the knob.

    Now, the BMA supported Viagra for years. You know that don't you :). This is why I have a original Viagra pen... you wanna see?
