    Barbara Boxer: Why no Viagra complaints? By: Tal Kopan March 25, 2014 11:28 AM EDT As the Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday about the Obamacare mandate on birth control coverage, Sen. Barbara Boxer questioned why those up in arms about the requirement have no problem with most insurance covering Viagra. “I have never heard Hobby Lobby or any other corporation, I could be wrong, or any other boss complain that Viagra is covered in many insurance plans, practically all of them, or other kinds of things, you know, for men, which I won’t go into,” Boxer said Tuesday on MSNBC’s...

    TRENTON, N.J. - Men who are bashful about needing help in the bedroom no longer have to go to the drugstore to buy that little blue pill. In a first for the drug industry, Pfizer Inc. told The Associated Press that the drugmaker will begin selling its popular erectile dysfunction pill Viagra to patients on its website. Men still will need a prescription to buy the blue, diamond-shaped pill on viagra.com, but they no longer have to face a pharmacist to get it filled. And for those who are bothered by Viagra's steep $25-a-pill price, Pfizer is offering three free...

    Viagra may have a future well beyond erectile dysfunction. Someday, we could perhaps see it prescribed for weight loss—or even to combat cancer, in combination with green tea. Scientists know that mice have lower rates of obesity, despite fatty diets, when they're on the drug. Now, researchers in Germany have an idea why: Viagra plays a role in turning white fat cells—a factor in overweight humans' "spare tires"—into beige ones, which burn energy, the New York Times reports. Meanwhile, researchers in Japan have found that the drug may be handy in fighting cancer, if it's taken with a dose of...

    Viagra is a performance-enhancing drug. But will it help players gain an edge on the football field? Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall seems to think so. When asked about Adderall, which is being blamed for a rising number of PED suspensions in the NFL, Marshall had an interesting response. “I don’t know too much about Adderall,” Marshall said during his weekly press conference. “I know guys, it is such a competitive league, guys try anything just to get that edge. I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with size and some smarts to give me my edge. But some guys, they’ll...

But it went on for months — hours and hours of headbanging sex.” The report in the liberal Gawker comes on the heels of The Daily Caller’s early Thursday article about how Menendez allegedly paid two women in the Dominican Republic for sex.

The scientists showed that sildenafil makes stiffened cardiac walls more elastic again. The drug activates an enzyme that causes the giant protein titin in the myocardial cells to relax.

    Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, struggling to close an estimated $325 million budget hole, has engaged in an open war of words with the city’s public employee unions. At a press conference Thursday, the mayor said resistance from the American Federation of State, Council and Municipal Employees to renegotiated contracts was costing the city $500,000 per month. “Either they can’t read or they can’t add or they can’t comprehend — it has to be one of the three,” Bing said. The union shot back,

    BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Argentina's president recommended pork as an alternative to Viagra Wednesday, saying she spent a satisfying weekend with her husband after eating barbecued pork. "I've just been told something I didn't know; that eating pork improves your sex life ... I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra," President Cristina Fernandez said to leaders of the pig farming industry. She said she recently ate pork and "things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true."

    “The men who have brought us this [amendment] don’t single out a procedure that is used by a man, or a drug that is used by a man, that involves his reproductive health care, and say they have to get a special rider...There is nothing in this amendment that says if a man some day wants to buy Viagra, for example, that his pharmaceutical coverage cannot cover it, that he has to buy a rider.” This is the latest drivel in the health care debate brought to the Senate floor by Barbara Boxer this past Monday in response to the...

    Here is video of Barbara Boxer comparing insurance which covers Viagra to justify why government health insurance should cover abortion...(Video)Boxer said "is it fair to say to a man "you're going to have to buy a rider to buy Viagra and this will be public information to be accessed?" No, I don't support that. I support a man's privacy, just as I support a woman's privacy, so it's very clear to me that this amendment would be the biggest rollback to a woman's right to choose in decades."

    A cream allowing erectile dysfunction drugs to be applied directly to the skin could one day make them safer to use, say New York scientists. Studies in rats suggest that Viagra, Levitra and Cialis could pass through the skin in tiny capsules, they say. The research, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, could mean fewer side-effects, and even significantly speed up the drug's action.

    THE widespread tendency in Brazil for men to remarry women several decades younger than them, called the "Viagra effect", is undermining the country's pension system. The report, by Brazil's National Social Security Institute, showed that a trend of men in their sixties marrying women half their age was leaving a big pool of young widows collecting benefits for much longer than anticipated. "The social security system was planned so that the wife receives her husband's pension for only 15 years or so," the author of the study, Paulo Tafner, said. "With growing life expectancy and remarriages with much younger women,...

    Arguing that having sex is essential to a reasonable quality of life, a Swedish court has ordered local authorities to subsidize a 30-year-man’s prescription for the potency drug Viagra. The case involves a man from Gothenburg in western Sweden who recently emerged from a 15-year addiction during which he was treated with a medicine that left him impotent, the Göteborgs-Posten (GP) newspaper reports. The issue of whether or not he was entitled to assistance originally came about because he did not have specific medical advice recommending that he needed to take the potency medication. The local support unit in the...

    ... Buffett, a supporter of President Barack Obama during last year's election campaign, said a second economic stimulus package might be needed. The Obama administration says it does not see a need for a second stimulus yet. "I think a second one may well be called for. It is not a panacea. A stimulus is the right thing. You hope it doesn't get watered down," he said. He likened the first $787 billion stimulus package passed by Congress to "half a tablet of Viagra and then having also a bunch of candy mixed in --- it doesn't have really quite...

Enforcement officials said the coffee was mixed with sildenafil to "perk up" drinkers beyond the usual...
