“Viagra” Bill Introduced in Ohio To “Protect Men’s Health”


As I’m sure anyone who has experienced priapism can no doubt tell you, erectile drugs side affects are no laughing matter.  Well, unless you’re in an “American Pie” sequel.

That’s why Ohio state Senator Nita Lowry is introducing a very important bill to help regulate Viagra usage.

Via the Middletown Journal:

Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way.

At least she didn’t mandate a rectal exam.
