Despite being in agony, he reportedly said nothing for months, hoping that he would eventually be able to pass the rod back out again.Eventually as the pain increased he turned up at the hospital where doctors carried out an xray and discovered the cause of the pain.They said it was a relatively simple operation to remove the steel rod from inside the man, but they did not say whether it had caused any longterm damage to his internal organs.Like us on Facebook

Included in the material released was a copy of the handwritten statement Limbaugh provided investigators after he was detained upon the discovery of the impotency drug.In that statement, Limbaugh claimed that the drug had been prescribed in his doctors name to protect my privacy, given the potential embarrassing nature of Viagra.An affidavit sworn three days later by Limbaugh was also released. In that document, Limbaugh explains that the Viagra was intended for my exclusive use and that the drug had been prescribed in the name of his drug treatment doctor, Steven Strumwasser. (4 pages)
commentsJeffrey Archer has revealed that he has been left impotent by surgery after he underwent prostate cancer treatmentJeffrey Archer has revealed that he has been left impotent by surgery he underwent to treat prostate cancer.His candid admission, in an exclusive interview in todays Mail on Sunday Event magazine, has been welcomed by health campaigners as a courageous boost for other men suffering the condition.Lord Archer, 74, said: You can still get the feeling, you can still get the urge, but you cant do anything about it. Cant do a thing.You live with it, like anything else. Get on with it. Notmuch I can do about it.The bestselling novelist and Tory peer was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013, after his wife Mary persuaded him to undergo a thorough medical checkup following a routine blood test which revealed he had indicators of prostate cancer.Lord Archer, 74, had been warned of the dangers before he had the operation at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, but he chose to risk the potential impact on his sex life because it improved his chances of survival.He said: I didnt want to die of cancer.In June last year Lord Archer wrote exclusively for The Mail on Sunday about his battle with cancer and urged other men to get their prostate specific antigen levels checked by their GP.He described how at one point during his treatment he became a baby again, having to wear large nappies.Lord Archers revelation echoes that of Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has also spoken openly about his battle with prostate cancer.The 66yearold composer was left impotent after surgery to remove his prostate, following a diagnosis in 2009.Lord Archers courage in sharing such intimate details about the sideeffects of his treatment has won the praise of cancer charities, who say it will help reduce the stigma surrounding the disease.Owen Sharp, chief executive of Prostate Cancer UK, said: Men are getting much better, not only at opening up about their health, but addressing any concerns head on.They are much more likely to speak to a friend, for instance, about their health than they used to be.The frank honesty of prominent figures like Lord Archer is boosting this trend enormously.Prostate is the most common cancer in men: one in eight will be diagnosed with the disease in the UK.For support and advice from one of Prostate Cancer UKs specialist nurses, phone the charitys helpline on 0800 074 8383 or visit the website www.prostatecanceruk.org I dont care how much I am worth... I am 74 and I could be dead tomorrow. I dont work for money: Jeffrey Archer on his career, prison and why Mary is still with himBy Cole Moreton for Event MagazineHes survived prison, penury, a very public affair, political scandal and now, he tells Event, an illness thats robbed him of his virility. So what if he sounds like the villain of a potboiler? Hes sold 270 million of them... and hes still got Mary by his sideI am first and foremost a storyteller. I dont want you to put the book down, I want you to turn the page. I want to capture and hold on to you, said Jeffrey ArcherWhy on earth is she still with him? Thats what everybody wonders about the brilliant scientist Mary Archer and her lying, cheating exjailbird of a husband Jeffrey.But very few dare to ask him to his face.Ha! Nobody asks that who knows us, says Lord Archer of WestonSuperMare, laughing out loud.That is only said by people who have never met us.But thats fair enough, there are millions of them!We will get to the bottom of this in a wideranging and breathtakingly frank interview that covers his love for Mary (she is very forgiving), his vast wealth (I havent a clue how much Im worth), the forthcoming Election (Nigel Farage is a brilliant politician), his literary reputation (Im not sure Ian McEwan can do what I do) and the lifethreatening illness which has now robbed him of his virility. But first my eyes have to adjust to the surroundings.His penthouse apartment on the south bank of the Thames overlooks the headquarters of MI5 and could easily be the set of a spy movie.Lord Archer sits grinning in a deep and wide cream sofa with floortoceiling windows behind him that offer stunning views.The whole place is designed to impress, including the first thing you see when you walk into the flat: a painting of the Houses of Parliament by the impressionist Claude Monet, which will turn out to be a version of the real view outside his windows.The painting is worth at least a couple of million pounds.We call that Kane And Abel, says Lord Archer, referring to his bestselling novel of the same name, which has been read as he delights in saying 50 million times in India alone.In total he has sold 270 million copies of his books, a number he mentions frequently. This is his defence against the dying of the light, and the fact that at the age of 74, he is no longer as full of himself as he used to be. Not all the time, anyway.The first letter I got when I came out of prison was from Margaret Thatcher, he saidThe grey business suit he is wearing is still that of a man who was in his pomp in the Eighties, and I half expect to see a flash of red braces. But whereas Archer used to bark at those he disagreed with, now he growls playfully.The stage he has set for himself is magnificent, with the sun fading as we speak and the lights of London coming on behind him.He can afford to be confident with all this around him and can admit his own failings, even if it is as a prelude to a boast.I am a storyteller, he says.Not a writer?No. I would like to be both, he continues. But I am first and foremost a storyteller.I dont want you to put the book down, I want you to turn the page. I want to capture and hold on to you. I greatly admire Ian McEwan, who is a superb writer. I know I cant do that. But Im not sure he can do what I do.Does he feel underrated by the literary establishment?Not outside my own country. I won an award last week from the Irish. That was a good party. I have two from France, one from Germany, one from America, never anything from this country.He wins these awards certainly, but like fellow popular writers JK Rowling and EL James he is rarely praised for his literary style.Is there some literary outsiders club in which he and the authors of the Harry Potter series and Fifty Shades Of Grey respectively get together to bitch about the critics and count their money?No, he says flatly, not seeing the joke. And he wont admit that the lack of respect bothers him.It doesnt worry me in the slightest. I was talking to my publisher this morning and the truth is, which would you rather have, 270 million sales or the Nobel Prize for Literature? Frankly, the 270 million sales, please.There is no doubt that he is a success again, 14 years after he went to jail for perjury and perverting the course of justice but then telling his stories has been his salvation as well as his downfall.His new book, Mightier Than The Sword, is a riproaring read that revels in high finance, boardroom power struggles, politics and terrorism. Theres a big bang in the first few chapters, a beautiful spy and an epic trial.It is the latest episode in The Clifton Chronicles, the decadespanning saga of Harry and Emma Clifton that is also being made into a TV series, possibly with John Hurt as the character Old Jack.I know they are getting very big names, says Lord Archer.They are casting, they have a director and, yes, they do have the money. So I am taking them seriously.This will be his first screen adaptation for decades, so why has he been ignored until now?I dont get it, he proclaims. John Grisham has had the same problem. I have had options up to my eyebrows you get a very nice cheque but then you never hear of them again.Was it all the bad publicity that ruined his chances? His novel First Among Equals was made into a TV series in 1986, but that was also the year he had to stand down as deputy chairman of the Conservative Party, after being accused of paying a prostitute 2,000 to leave the country.He sued the Daily Star for libel for saying he had slept with her, protesting that he was not a former client but had made the payment out of charity.He won 500,000 damages, but the evidence he gave in court came back to haunt him in 2000 when he was charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice.He was accused of asking former friend Ted Francis to provide him with a false alibi, presenting a fake diary as evidence and lying on oath.We would have left each other years ago if we did not still have a tremendous relationship, of course we would have done. I dont want anyone else, thanks very much, he said of his marriage to MaryArcher was running for Mayor of London at the time, but withdrew as a result of the charges. In 2001, he was sentenced to four years in prison. He served two of them.Surely that must have kept his books off the telly?No, he assures me. If book sales had gone down I would agree with you, but they have gone up every year.Still, the enduring mystery of his life is how he stays married to Mary, who was made a dame in her own right in 2012 for her services to the National Health Service.Having been an outstanding scientist, she revived the fortunes of Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge and is now chairman of the Science Museum Group.Its an incredible job, five million visitors a year, Lord Archer says. She was off at seven this morning for her first meeting. I have never seen her happier.He must have made her miserable a few times. The first was back in the Seventies when bankruptcy loomed. Archer had to step down as an MP after just five years, after losing all his money as the victim of a fraudulent investment scheme.Mary always says that was the worst of the lot, not knowing if you could afford the next meal, he says.It was much worse than anything else we have been through. We had two children, aged three and one. She wanted stability.Jeffrey withactress Sally Farmiloe who died of cancer last summer.Their affair had lasted three years.I hadnt seen her for 15 years, he saidWe had just moved to Cambridge. It was seven years between facing bankruptcy and becoming financially secure again.His way of avoiding bankruptcy was to write, which was a lot more possible in those days.Luckily, his first book, Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less, was a success. Archer rose again and together they launched a charm offensive on Eighties high society, becoming famous for their parties.His wife was close to Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister, a fact he brings up when I ask if Mary is scary.Yes, he says. She and Margaret Thatcher were taught chemistry by the same woman, who got them both to Oxford. So they had this amazing bond.It served him well until his political career crashed again at the beginning of the century when he was told by the Tory leadership that his conviction for perjury meant he could never run for office again.By now he and Lady Mary were said to be living separate lives, he in London and she at the Old Vicarage in Grantchester, near Cambridge, although they put on a united front.Mary and I held a party here 15 years ago, Lord Archer says.The bestselling novelist was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013, after his wife Mary (left) persuaded him to undergo a thorough medical checkup following a routine blood test which revealed he had indicators of prostate cancerWe think, looking at the list, that there are only four people who completely deserted us. Two of them are trying to get back in now, saying, Oh Jeffrey, you are wonderful. Balls.There is a sinister flash in his eyes, just for a moment, but he is too much of a born charmer to allow it to last.The people who stood by me, God they were loyal and so wonderful. The first letter I got when I came out of prison was from Margaret Thatcher, handwritten. Come and have lunch. The Ritz, centre table.During and after his time in jail several women told the press they had been his mistress, including the actress Sally Farmiloe. Their affair had lasted three years.Jeffrey wasnt highly sexed, she revealed in 2011. He didnt want it five times a night or anything, thank God, but he was certainly very sexy. And a good lover, definitely.What has it been like having to face Mary whenever something like that has appeared?Im not sure she cares any more. Shes so busy, he says, chuckling. He is talking about the present day, not the past.I remember seeing her drifting off at breakfast. I said, Will I see you again? She said, Yes, we are seeing each other at nine. As if it was an appointment. The boys say the same. I have got used to that. It is part of the deal.When Sally died of cancer last summer, Archer published a short tribute, a tacit admission of the affair which led to a wave of new stories. That must have been a tricky moment.I hadnt seen her for 15 years, he admits. It was rather the press digging everything up again.So why not just say nothing?He says: I did discuss that with his publishers and they thought a simple statement would be better than Callous Man Says Nothing. You cant win, by the way.Jeffrey and Mary Archer will have been married for 50 years in 2016, but their relationship appears to have changed of late.Far from being estranged, as was previously believed to be the case, he describes a routine in which they are very much living together under the same roof (whichever of their homes they happen to be in).They go to the theatre twice a week, once in London and then on a Saturday night in Cambridge, always parking in the same spot, eating at the same restaurant and taking up the same tickets, in row F.He must have tested her patience greatly.I certainly have. But then she is a patient animal, and very forgiving. Very understanding, he concedes.We would have left each other years ago if we did not still have a tremendous relationship, of course we would have done. I dont want anyone else, thanks very much.He had a funny way of showing it, but sounds sincere.If I had life over again she is the one I would have, he says. She is very special. Shes not easy because shes so demanding, on herself.Dame Mary is the model for Emma Clifton, a remarkably capable and intimidating women in his novels.When we were young, in our 20s, her father called for me, Lord Archer recalls.Before he died of cancer, he said: I want you to assure me you will not stop Mary advancing in any career she takes up. I said, I give you my word, sir, that she will progress in anything she is capable of.Mary said to me the other day, You could face my father now and say, Well, shes chairman of the Science Museum, what else do you want?In 2000 Archer was charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice. He was accused of asking former friend Ted Francis to provide him with a false alibi. In 2001, he was sentenced to four years in prisonWould it not have been very hard to face her father when he was in disgrace?Oh yes, he agrees, but we all have an up and down life. You included.Ive not been to prison yet.No, no, no. But I think on that Marys career I could face him honourably, he says.Researching this article, I came across a clip of the Ice Bucket Challenge they took together last year.Mary clearly relished dumping icy water on his head but there is an intimacy and physical closeness on show that surprised me. Does this come as a surprise to people, given the rumours of estrangement?Not friends, no, Lord Archer says. If you had seen us last night. She was singing OldFashioned Millionaire with the choir and had the place in fits of laughter.That was an interesting choice of song. The lyrics say, I want an oldfashioned house, with an oldfashioned fence and an oldfashioned millionaire... Ill stay weaving at my loom, be no trouble to my groom, if hell keep the piles of money mounting.Mary must have made a relative fortune of her own, thanks to a stellar career in science and medicine, but it wont be in his league. How much is Lord Archer worth?Havent a clue. Dont care, he says. I know that might sound silly but it isnt what I work for these days.I am 74 and I could be dead tomorrow. I dont work for money, I work to make you admire the book.I dont want you to say, This isnt as good as the last one Jeffrey, youre losing it. Thats what Im frightened of.People arent saying that. If anything his literary reputation is improving, as he is well aware.I think I am a better craftsman than I was, he concludes. I am more experienced. Now the more serious critics are saying. This is the best thing you have ever done.Meanwhile, the Archers have faced other challenges that have brought them much closer.First, Mary suffered bladder cancer and had to have a major operation at Addenbrokes. He nursed her, although she remained formidable.I wasnt at all convinced it was going to be all right, he admits. I, who know nothing about medicine, was panicking. She was obviously pale. The morning after the operation, the senior nurse brings in some flowers and Mary says, Janice, could you just sit down? I have been worrying for some time about the rota for junior nurses. There is nothing that sums Mary up better than that.Then Lord Archer was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which also required an operation. He wrote about it frankly in The Mail On Sunday last summer and said there was a danger of becoming impotent as a result of the surgery. Did that happen?Yes, he says. You can still get the feeling, you can still get the urge, but you cant do anything about it. Cant do a thing.How does he deal with it?You live with it, like anything else, he says. Get on with it. Not much I can do about it I didnt want to die of cancer.Jeffreys penthouse apartment on the south bank of the Thames overlooks the headquarters of MI5 and could easily be the set of a spy movieThat is the Jeffrey Archer way: dont give in to misfortune however selfinflicted just keep going.If you dont like the story of your life, tell another one. Politically, then, is he tempted for another go with Ukip?No, he tells me. I havent had any contact with them at all. They havent been anywhere near me.He describes Nigel Farage as a brilliant politician but adds: I dont see that they can govern this country and I can see that they might stop the party I support governing this country.Of the two million votes they are going to get, 1.3 million will probably be Tory.Doesnt that suggest there is something wrong with the Tory leadership?I have a great deal of sympathy for David Cameron, he says.If you go to Eton and win a scholarship to Oxford and you get a first class honours degree, hello? Do we not want people like that? Do we only want people who didnt get a good education? Is this the new rule? If you get a first, youre out? Thats the politics of envy and I hate it.He remains a diehard Conservative and a major fundraiser for the party as well as for charity.Archer is a brilliant auctioneer funny, selfdeprecating, able to charm the money out of peoples pockets in any room. He raises millions for charity each year in this way.The strong friendships he developed in prison show he can get on with anyone, and Lord Archer has little time for politicians who see themselves as above the socalled common people, born to rule.I am a pleb, he says. I have no aristocracy in me.This is clearly a reference to Andrew Mitchell, former Chief Whip, whose career is in ruins after he lost a libel case against The Sun, during which the judge said he probably had called police officers plebs outside Downing Street.Does he have any advice for Mitchell or for Andy Coulson, the former Downing Street spin doctor who was recently released from Hollesley Bay, the prison where Archer served his time? The answer is yes: find something else to do for a while.I didnt go back, he says. I turned to writing. Jack Profumo turned to charity and did very well.I would say to anyone in that position, not just in politics, that it takes a long time to come back. Dont think you will do it tomorrow morning.The road from prison to here has been long, but Lord Archer has beaten off cancer, is a year off celebrating one of the most unlikely golden weddings of all time and he will almost certainly do so with another bestseller under his belt.No wonder he is so pleased with how the story of his life is turning out.After all these years, you see the crowds I appear in front of, he says.You see the book sales, the people who read me.

Surgery 6Aging . It is four times more common in men aged in their 60s than those in their 40s. 7Kidney failureDiseases such as diabetes mellitus and multiple sclerosis (MS). While these two causes have not been proven they are likely suspects as they cause issues with both the blood flow and nervous systems.Lifestyle: smoking is a key cause of erectile dysfunction. 8 9 Smoking causes impotence because it promotes arterial narrowing . 10Surgical intervention for a number of conditions may remove anatomical structures necessary to erection, damage nerves, or impair blood supply. Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of treatments for prostate cancer, including prostatectomy and destruction of the prostate by external beam radiation , although the prostate gland itself is not necessary to achieve an erection. As far as inguinal hernia surgery is concerned, in most cases, and in the absence of postoperative complications, the operative repair can lead to a recovery of the sexual life of patients with preoperative sexual dysfunction, while, in most cases, it does not affect patients with a preoperative normal sexual life. 11ED can also be associated with bicycling due to both neurological and vascular problems due to compression. 12 The increase risk appears to be about 1.7fold. 13Concerns that use of pornography can cause erectile dysfunction 14 have not been substantiated in epidemiological studies according to a 2015 literature review. 15 However, another review and case studies article maintains that use of pornography does indeed cause erectile dysfunction, and critiques the previously described literature review. 16PathophysiologyPenile erection is managed by two mechanisms: the reflex erection, which is achieved by directly touching the penile shaft, and the psychogenic erection, which is achieved by erotic or emotional stimuli. The former uses the peripheral nerves and the lower parts of the spinal cord, whereas the latter uses the limbic system of the brain . In both cases, an intact neural system is required for a successful and complete erection. Stimulation of the penile shaft by the nervous system leads to the secretion of nitric oxide (NO), which causes the relaxation of smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa (the main erectile tissue of penis), and subsequently penile erection. Additionally, adequate levels of testosterone (produced by the testes ) and an intact pituitary gland are required for the development of a healthy erectile system. As can be understood from the mechanisms of a normal erection, impotence may develop due to hormonal deficiency, disorders of the neural system, lack of adequate penile blood supply or psychological problems. 17 Spinal cord injury causes sexual dysfunction including ED. Restriction of blood flow can arise from impaired endothelial function due to the usual causes associated with coronary artery disease , but can also be caused by prolonged exposure to bright light .DiagnosisThis section needs additional citations for verification . Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources . Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.(May 2010)( Learn how and when to remove this template message )It is analyzed in several ways:Obtaining full erections at some times, such as nocturnal penile tumescence when asleep (when the mind and psychological issues, if any, are less present), tends to suggest that the physical structures are functionally working. 18 19Other factors leading to erectile dysfunction are diabetes mellitus (causing neuropathy ).There are no formal tests to diagnose erectile dysfunction. Some blood tests are generally done to exclude underlying disease, such as hypogonadism and prolactinoma . Impotence is also related to generally poor physical health, poor dietary habits, obesity , and most specifically cardiovascular disease such as coronary artery disease and peripheral vascular disease . Therefore, a thorough physical examination is helpful, in particular the simple search for a previously undetected groin hernia since it can affect sexual functions in men and is easily curable. 11A useful and simple way to distinguish between physiological and psychological impotence is to determine whether the patient ever has an erection. If never, the problem is likely to be physiological if sometimes (however rarely), it could be physiological or psychological. The current diagnostic and statistical manual of mental diseases ( DSMIV ) has included a listing for impotence.Duplex ultrasoundDuplex ultrasound is used to evaluate blood flow, venous leak, signs of atherosclerosis , and scarring or calcification of erectile tissue. Injecting prostaglandin , a hormonelike stimulator produced in the body, induces the erection. Ultrasound is then used to see vascular dilation and measure penile blood pressure .Penile nerves functionTests such as the bulbocavernosus reflex test are used to determine if there is sufficient nerve sensation in the penis. The physician squeezes the glans (head) of the penis, which immediately causes the anus to contract if nerve function is normal. A physician measures the latency between squeeze and contraction by observing the anal sphincter or by feeling it with a gloved finger inserted past the anus.Nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT)It is normal for a man to have five to six erections during sleep, especially during rapid eye movement (REM) . Their absence may indicate a problem with nerve function or blood supply in the penis. There are two methods for measuring changes in penile rigidity and circumference during nocturnal erection: snap gauge and strain gauge. A significant proportion of men who have no sexual dysfunction nonetheless do not have regular nocturnal erections.Penile biothesiometryThis test uses electromagnetic vibration to evaluate sensitivity and nerve function in the glans and shaft of the penis.Dynamic infusion cavernosometry (DICC)technique in which fluid is pumped into the penis at a known rate and pressure. It gives a measurement of the vascular pressure in the corpus cavernosum during an erection.Corpus cavernosometryCavernosography measurement of the vascular pressure in the corpus cavernosum. Saline is infused under pressure into the corpus cavernosum with a butterfly needle, and the flow rate needed to maintain an erection indicates the degree of venous leakage. The leaking veins responsible may be visualized by infusing a mixture of saline and xray contrast medium and performing a cavernosogram. 20 In Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA), the images are acquired digitally.Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)This is similar to magnetic resonance imaging . Magnetic resonance angiography uses magnetic fields and radio waves to provide detailed images of the blood vessels. Doctors may inject a contrast agent into the patients bloodstream that causes vascular tissues to stand out against other tissues. The contrast agent provides for enhanced information regarding blood supply and vascular anomalies.TreatmentTreatment depends on the cause.Exercise , particularly aerobic exercise during midlife is effective for preventing ED exercise as a treatment is under investigation. 21 :6, 1819 For tobacco smokers , cessation results in a significant improvement. 22Oral pharmacotherapy and vacuum erection devices are firstline treatments, 21 :20, 24 followed by injections of drugs into the penis, and penile implants. 21 :2526MedicationThe PDE5 inhibitors sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra) and tadalafil (Cialis) are prescription drugs which are taken orally. 21 :2021A cream combining alprostadil with the permeation enhancer DDAIP has been approved in Canada as a first line treatment for erectile dysfunction. 23One of the following medications maybe injected into the penis: papaverine , phentolamine , and prostaglandin E1 . 21 :25PumpsMain article: penis pumpA vacuum erection device helps draw blood into the penis by applying negative pressure. This type of device is sometimes referred to as penis pump and may be used just prior to sexual intercourse . Several types of FDA approved vacuum therapy devices are available with a doctors prescription. When pharmacological methods fail, a purposedesigned external vacuum pump can be used to attain erection, with a separate compression ring fitted to the penis to maintain it. These pumps should be distinguished from other penis pumps (supplied without compression rings) which, rather than being used for temporary treatment of impotence, are claimed to increase penis length if used frequently, or vibrate as an aid to masturbation . More drastically, inflatable or rigid penile implants may be fitted surgically.SurgeryMain article: Penile prosthesisOften, as a last resort if other treatments have failed, the most common procedure is prosthetic implants which involves the insertion of artificial rods into the penis. 21 :26Alternative medicineThe FDA does not recommend alternative therapies to treat sexual dysfunction. 24 Many products are advertised as herbal viagra or natural sexual enhancement products, but no clinical trials or scientific studies support the effectiveness of these products for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, and synthetic chemical compounds similar to sildenafil have been found as adulterants in many of these products. 25 26 27 28 29 The United States Food and Drug Administration has warned consumers that any sexual enhancement product that claims to work as well as prescription products is likely to contain such a contaminant. 30HistoryThis section needs additional citations for verification .

Ottoman miniature.During the late 16th and 17th centuries in France, male impotence was considered a crime, as well as legal grounds for a divorce. The practice, which involved inspection of the complainants by court experts, was declared obscene in 1677. 31John R. Brinkley initiated a boom in male impotence cures in the U.S. in the 1920s and 1930s. His radio programs recommended expensive goat gland implants and mercurochrome injections as the path to restored male virility, including operations by surgeon Serge Voronoff .Modern drug therapy for ED made a significant advance in 1983, when British physiologist Giles Brindley dropped his trousers and demonstrated to a shocked Urodynamics Society audience his papaverine induced erection. 32 The drug Brindley injected into his penis was a nonspecific vasodilator, an alphablocking agent, and the mechanism of action was clearly corporal smooth muscle relaxation. The effect that Brindley discovered established the fundamentals for the later development of specific, safe, and orally effective drug therapies. 33 bettersourceneeded 34 bettersourceneeded LexicologyThe Latin term impotentia coeundi describes simple inability to insert the penis into the vagina it is now mostly replaced by more precise terms, such as erectile dysfunction (ED).

Fuck I cant stop reading articles and comments from this website!0July 20, 2014DeviousThis articles posits a question but doesnt really answer it. Why are most men impotent and depressed? I think the answer is a combination of bad genes, bad diet (high fat and sugar content), and overstimulation from high dopamine stimulants like porn, the internet, video games, and media in general. Our human brains simply have not adapted to be able to handle this much stimulation without producing less dopamine receptors. We dont get a rush from the every day anymore because of this and it greatly limits drive, desire, and determination in people. Hence, what makes men masculine is being eroded at a physiological level.There is an increasing body of neuroscience that supports all of this. Especially related to porn.The red pill helps us know whats wrong and the symptoms, but understanding why is the key to actually solving our predicament.0July 20, 2014Clark KentI think its deeper than that but youre right that porn and constant neon distractions are a part of it.Learn to swim.Today my mom told me about her coworker and her beta provider husband And the black married man she is having an affair with Hearing that brought down my motivation for the day tbh.. Its more than just the media Its the perception of a lack of options.No stable family life, no battles to fight, no truth, brutal financial situation, were a primarily secular generation and ppl feel isolated and without any clear paths.Jefe is right.. Go do what you really wanna do and quit bitching The problem is figuring out what is worth doing.. Or just stop thinking and go for it.. Anything Just get off your ass.0July 21, 2014Riso AbovoA seriously consistent training program, meditation and clean diet gets your brain functioning well in no time. That and abstainining as much as possible from mainstream media and entertainment.0July 20, 2014AngryWhiteMailI do think that part of it is genes, but theres no denying that depression is in part the bodys way of telling you that youre doing something very wrong to yourself and that needs to change.With your point about dopamine in the body, I believe that depression in the past was nowhere near as bad as it is today, because there was a lot more stability in the family unit, as well as a reliable life path that most could expect to follow as long as they played by the rules. Life was also very exhausting in its own, allowing for better sleeping patterns etc.0July 20, 2014PhantomIve come to really like your articles, Jefe. Always straight to the point and with a powerful actionable message.You are right: angst, restlessness, dissatisfaction..all that shit is your subconscious telling you to cut the crap and become what you are meant to be.0July 20, 2014HALIm at a point where I am contemplating giving up. I am 25 and suffered through years and years of public school and its humiliation without achieving women. I have done more self introspection and self work than a half decent looking female could ever dream of having to achieve. Along with continuing to play the societal game as best as I can. And still I get to scrape the bottom of the barrel. 4s. I dont even bother of course. Sometimes its hard to keep trying without any positive results. I take steps backward in my development often. And yet I keep pushing forward. Tomorrow I will try to improve myself once more.0July 20, 2014BaneWhat if I told you most women youd deem as attractive are rough 4s? Simply google pornstarsactressesmodels without makeup. Thank me later.0July 20, 2014Dr.FHAL, if you have any whatsoever, then simply get tuned into your local P4P culture. Why pay (dinner, drinks, movies, small gifts) and put the effort into fucking civilian 4s, when you can pay far less to be guaranteed to fuck 79s any which way you want??? An ironic spin off effect is that fucking escorts hookers will vastly improve your game with civilians. Game both the system and women and then simply enjoy. Trust me, you dont want a LTR livein situation with 95 of women anyway (regardless of hot they are), so pay upfront to drain your balls on a semiregular basis w professionals, then augment w some casual dating and 1 night stands with civilians.If youre not relying on a woman to help nurture and raise your children, then they are simply not worth being around much. Male relationships (platonic, or course) are far more worthwhile, loyal and intellectually stimulating w a small fraction of the drama when compared to female relationships. If you are a bit of a social reject and cant make friends easily, then I would recommend getting a small dog, such as a Dachshund itll enrich your life immensely. Just my 2 cents in efforts to help, gent.0
June 7, 2009Format: PaperbackIn The Church Impotent, Leon Podles takes as his subject the severe gender imbalance in Western Christianity, both Catholic and Protestant. Although Im not sure about his explanation of the cause, his analysis of masculine religious psychology makes this one of the most enlightening books Ive ever read.It is an undeniable fact that women dominate the ranks of Western Christianity. In the myriad pews across the theological spectrum, women will make up from between 55 to 90 of the congregation. Christianity has come to be seen by the majority of Western man as something feminine or effeminate. Men may not be overtly hostile to a nominal Christian affiliation, but to actually attend church and actively participate in its life is widely considered unmanly and practically unthinkable, especially for single men. Men do make up the vast majority of the clergy (even in denominations where female clergy are allowed), but those men, as well as male churchgoers in general, tend to be more effeminate in character, behavior and interests. In fact, in the study Podles cites, only active homosexuals ranked higher than Christian clergymen on a scale of effeminacy. Indeed, in many Protestant denominations, homosexuality is accepted as an acceptable lifestyle, and in many others open homosexuals can even be ordained. In the Catholic Church, which officially regards homosexual sex as a sin, there grew up in the mid 20th century a lavender mafia in the priesthood which is only now being combated by the Vatican. This dominance of the church by women and an effeminate, and often homosexual, clergy has turned the church into something that men regard with indifference or aversion.Many people claim the reason is that women are simply more spiritual than men. Islam and Judaism belie that claim. And in the first 1000 years of Christianity, Podles points out that there was a gender balance in the Church (although of course not in the priesthood). Men were just as observant as women, most saints were men, and the Church emphasized things that spoke to the hearts of men (which I will get to shortly). The problem, he claims, can be traced to 3 causes. The first was the preaching of St. Bernard of Clairvaux (10901153), who used bridal imagery and romantic almost erotic language to describe the souls relationship to God. The second cause was the rise of the womens movement in the Middle Ages, which resulted in greater personal freedom, more female religious orders, more female saints and subsequent devotion to them. The third cause was the Scholastic movement, which applied logic to theology and thus divorced it from mysticism. Take these for what theyre worth I think his explanation bears further study, but that is his starting point. He says that thereafter the dominant attitude in everything from art to devotional practices was that the only way to relate to Christ was as a woman: passive, receptive, obedient. The divine paradigm was either husbandbride or motherson. He says that the Reformation, with its emphasis on Old Testament severity and patriarchalism, was a reaction to this medieval feminization of the Church, but that Protestantism too quickly fell victim to the feminine spirit of sentimentality.Even in ages we regard as fanatically religious, the gender imbalance persisted. Where there is extant evidence, Podles cites hard facts. Church membership records from 17th century Puritan New England show that even then women made up the majority of the church. The same was true in 19th century America, where popular literature often derided Protestant clergymen as effeminate halfmen. One only has to think of Jane Austens simpering Mr. Collins for a wellknown literary example of the type. Podles cites 19th century Spanish church membership and popular sayings for a comparable Catholic context. He also details the various efforts churches tried to reverse the trend. So, to paraphrase Freud, what is it exactly that men want?For the answer to this, Podles examines male psychology and the religious paradigms that actually speak to them, and this is, I think, the most profound part of the book. In contrast to girls, who automatically ease into womanhood with puberty, a boy needs tobecomea man through a spiritually transformative action. In the initiation rites, religious texts and national epics of practically every world culture, the story is the same: the boy must separate from the soft, sheltering world of women of mother enter the world of danger and challenge, face death, and only then return to the world of women as a protector, having conquered death and been reborn as something new. Through trial and suffering, he undergoes a spiritual death as a boy and a transcendent rebirth as a man. In societies where actual war isnt an option, initiation rites create its moral equivalent. If theres one thing that men across the globe instinctively share, its the view of the warrior archetype as the purest form of masculinity. And what is the warriors highest ideal, but selfsacrifice? Masculinity is an infinitely greater and different thing than being tough, bedding women, or being materially successful. Masculinity is, at heart, a willingness to sacrifice oneself for the other.Jesus Christ was the epitome of this masculine template. He left His family, underwent supernatural battle in the desert, defeated the devil, and brought back a great boon of enlightenment to His people. Then, He was tortured and killedfor their sake, but conquered death itself with His Resurrection, bringing salvation to humanity. Men instinctively relate to this heroic, glorious and masculine aspect of Jesus. He was, and is, everything we want to be as men. Yet, the feminine church has replaced Him with Jesus meek and mild, a woman with a beard in popular iconography, a nurturing bridegroom who walks and talks with me and tells me Im His own, a mother who kisses my booboos and provides a shoulder to cry on. To be sure, men need comforting too sometimes, but a religion that focuses on our weakness rather than our strength will not keep our interest long. And when the search for masculinity is divorced from the spirit, it manifests itself in the faux transcendence of modern America sports, sex and violence.Podles gives some examples of the masculinefriendly Christianity which still exist. He says the Holy Week Triduum of the Catholic Church is the apotheosis of the heroicmasculine ritual in Christianity. I can testify to that. The reenactment of the Passion, the sound of the bare wood clapping on Good Friday, the darkened church, the sense of desolation and eventual triumph effected in me an intimate identification with Christ and a feeling of transcendence. Podles also cites the Catholic Penitentes of the Southwest, who combine initiation rituals with physical mortification. Most well know though, is the conversion spirituality of evangelical Protestantism. Because men tend to think in black and white dichotomies (goodevil, deathlife), the stark choice presented by evangelical revivalism between salvation and damnation is very attractive to men. They see themselves in spiritual battle, and make a heroic choice to die to the old and be reborn a new creation. Men have a natural need and understanding for conversion throughout their lives, while it is relatively unimportant in womens lives. Unfortunately for the evangelical churches, once the men convert they find themselves in environments that are the very definition of effeminate. I think of the Promise Keepers, the evangelical mens movement, which gets men together in football stadiums so they can hug each other and cry. Good Lord! Revivalism does convert a lot of men to evangelicalism, who are then driven away by the normal effeminacy.Podles recommends that churches emphasize the masculine struggle and victory of Jesus. He says religion which speaks to men will use the language of warfare, of black and white contrasts, of those paradoxes (you must die in order to live) which men automatically grasp, of the transcendence of the self through selfsacrifice. Its worship will be serious rather than happyclappy. He cites the need for some sort of initiation ritual for young men. If Christianity isnt to become some sort of amiable ladies club, we have to rediscover the masculine heart of our Faith.
