According to "The Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction," men "who have a problem with anger" are more "likely to experience erectile dysfunction." In fact, anger is cited as the second cause of E.D., after physical causes.
Interestingly, "In large-scale studies, nearly 80 percent of men who reported having erectile dysfunction were also overweight."
And, "at age 40, there is an approximately 40% prevalence rate (of erectile dysfunction), increasing to almost 70% in men at age 70," according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Even men who don't get the surgery, but use a pill like Viagra, will pay about the same price for just ONE blue pill as a woman would pay for a whole month of oral contraceptives. (But the difference is that the Little Boy Blue pill is specifically for enhancing sexual performance, and has no other health benefits.)
Chances are that the gentlemen will likely use more than one blue pill per month, thereby exceeding the monthly budget for a woman's Hormone Therapy Tabs, many times over.
So now, Mr. Limbaugh, I ask: according to your criteria, will the REAL "sluts" please stand up?
I absolutely do not mean to imply by anything said here that I believe that penile implant surgery is a bad thing, or something to be made fun of. At the meeting I attended, a charming little grandmotherly gal got up to testify that her husband's surgery was the best thing that ever happened in their over-40-year sex life, and that she particularly loved the fact that there was a switch that she could turn on and off, according to her preference at the moment. Upon further reflection on that point, I began to understand her excitement. She noted further that she enjoyed the fact that they had a remote control for the apparatus! (I just hope they can keep that remote away from the dog!)
It's easy to imagine that someday, all the guys who have had this surgery will be happily advertising it on the online dating services, with particularly rewarding results for all parties involved.
