Women legislators turn the tables and introduce bills regulating men's reproductive health

“Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D) isn’t happy with bills that seek to control women’s access to contraception and abortion. She has joined a trend across the nation by introducing a bill that would require men seeking a prescription for erectile dysfunction drugs to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and ‘get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency.’ Sex therapists would be required to present 'celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.’”

Erectile dysfunction and divorce in pre-revolutionary France.


On his 40th birthday, a man was given a gift certificate from his wife. The certificate was for consultation with a shaman living nearby their apartment, who was rumored to have a simple cure for erectile dysfunction.  The husband went to see the shaman.  The old guy gave him a potion and, with a grip on his shoulder, warned him “This is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful, and then say: ‘1-2-3.’ When you do, you will become a more manly man than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform for as long as you want.” The man thanked the shaman, and as he walked away, he turned and asked:  “How do I stop the medicine from working?“  "Your partner must say ‘1-2-3-4,’ he responded, "but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon." The man was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in bed.  She was definitely interested so she got undressed and joined him in the sack. Once they were in he said: "1-2-3!” Immediately, he was the manliest of men.  His wife was excited but asked: “What’s the 1-2-3 for?“ And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we could end up with a dangling participle.
