Spider bite causes four hour erection
Orange News UK ^ | 03-08-2011 | Staff

Posted on 03/08/2011 5:25:19 PM PST by Red Badger

Scientists believe a spider could lead to a breakthrough in sexual health after finding a single bite can cause a four hour erection.

Researchers at the Medical College of Georgia believe the venom of the Brazilian wandering spider could lead to a new cure for erectile dysfunction. Dr Kenia Nunes, a physiologist at the college, said it works in a different way to Viagra, reports the Daily Mail, "This is good because we know that some patients don't respond to the conventional therapy. This could be an optional treatment for them," she said.

Her study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved experiments using hypertensive rats with severe erectile dysfunction. "The toxin was able to normalise the erectile dysfunction in these animals," said Dr Nunes.

However, further research is required. Other side-effects can include loss of muscle control, severe pain, difficulty breathing and death. Dr Nunes added: "The venom of the Phoneutria nigriventer spider is a very rich mixture of several molecules."These molecules are called toxins, and then we have various toxins in this venom with different activity."Because of this, when a human is bitten by this spider, we can observe many different symptoms including priapism, a condition in which the penis is continually erect."

Obama, his Islamic-agenda NASA chief, and the Space Shuttle Captain could have used a “bite of the spider”.

The last Shuttle had a satellite to launch into space -

But Obama could not get it up!

How long after the erection subsides does it shrivel up, turn black, and fall off?

Hmm, tough choice. I'd say it's a coin flip.

Spider bite causes four hour erection

He just got taller.

Sounds like it has all the makings of a winning Super Bowl ad a few years down the road. They'll need to find a way to work in Rocky and Megan. The announcer drolls on, Medical studies have shown that one of the most common causes of death of powerful men of a certain age is heart failure while committing adultery with younger partners.

I’ve heard of toxins that do this before.

the anti depressant sleep aid Desaryl does this too at times they say

1) there are some ED drugs in the pipeline that are more neuron agonists than NO2 stimulators

2) more importantly make a drug to give middle aged gals who want it..to have something to bring back the drive they had back when they baby craved and stayed horny

or just start making Quaaludes again..I’m serious...that would work....Quaaludes made gals ravenous and very uninhibited...and a good night’s sleep too but no driving

seriously...women too often after the lust for getting pregnant fades after a bunch of births or menopause hints at coming or just tired from mommying or God forbid...the vaunted “career”...they need something to get em going..

Men...real men anyhow..even in marginal health like me are ALWAYS motivated for sex...at least for me...I’m 53 I am no different than I was 30 years ago except grayer and more tired...but women slow down..hell some just quit bless their hearts

Pfizer or Merck figures out how to boost drive in women over 40 and they got it going baby...the husbands will be buying it and dosing wifey

(*no I’m not speaking from personal experience but most of my peers most certainly have this complaint)

I rarely side with fembots but I do agree that too much attention is paid to men on sex....but maybe these older women would rather not have something for the man to hold over their head...I have heard women complain they wish Viagara had never been invented...that the old coot won’t leave them alone

I never understood erectile dysfunction. How lazy can you get?

On the other hand, I don’t want a four hour erection.
