Men’s Health

A Blast from 2013, which still holds true today. Men mostly don’t go to doctors, unless they want something specific.

More studies are coming out that are pointing out that: thanks to Erectile Dysfunction medications (like Viagra) men seem to be getting healthier.

I said it, I meant it. Boner pills have saved many Men.

Men's health


Think about it, most men go to the Doctor when their arm falls off or their skin turns purple (i.e. never). “I’ll just walk it off”, or “Nothing to worry about”, are typical excuses by men, who believe that going to the doctor is a sign of being a Wuss.

I don’t remember who wrote this, but she was female, and she pointed out that if men poop’ed blood, they’d simply go to the bathroom with the lights off, so they wouldn’t have to see it (a very true statement about men’s health).

Then the MIRACLE of E.D. medications arrived. All those men who felt that somehow their virility was not what it should be, now started to flock to their Doctors to get themselves a “little blue pill” (or whatever the other pills look like).

The Globe and Mail

How did this stunted (if not weird) conversation go between the patient and the Doctor?

Patient: Hey Doc.
Doctor: Hey Mr. X haven’t seen you since you stepped on that board with the rusty nail and got gangrene in your foot, what was that like 10 years ago?
Patient: Yeh Doc, I’ve been kind of busy, but I wanted to talk to you about a problem I’ve been having.
Doctor: Really Mr. X? What kind of problem might that be…..
{fill in your favourite uncomfortable explanation about how Mr. X.’s plumbing does not work the same as it did when he was 18}
Doctor: Well, I think we can do something for you, but I’ll have to give you a complete physical first.
Patient: What for?
Doctor: Well, if you have heart problems or high blood pressure and I give you this medication you might die.
Patient: I guess so Doc, if I might die…

That is why Men may start living longer because they want to have the ability to bang a nail in without a hammer. Their view that their partners will not love them unless they can do something for 4 hours, which most folks don’t do for more than 3 minutes.

An entire industry is now created around men wanting the ability to hang their hats without a nail, and due to this, men’s health has improved (in spite of themselves). Yes, we men are a complicated species to understand, but at least now we know what might motivate us to go to the Doctor more than once every 20 years (aside from our Doctor’s having a stunningly beautiful receptionist).

Health is more important than wealth, but most men don’t figure that out until they are very unhealthy (and can’t get back to healthy easily either). Work on your wealth, but remember that without health, you are making sure your estate has lots of money for your kids.

See your Doctor, if you haven’t seen him (or her) in more than 5 years.

If they could figure out this kind of association for Financial Health, think where we might be?

Oh and to add a financial spin on this, I owned stock in Pfizer as well (for full disclosure).

Feel Free to Comment

  1. “if your erection lasts longer than 4 hours, call your doctor”.

    That’s not a warning, that’s an advertisement. And after four hours, what guy is calling the doctor? Most guys would be calling their buddies with “Hey, check it out!”.

  2. Interesting information,
    Months ago, an article in the Journal of Clinical Investigation confirmed that researchers have discovered that Viagra helps a protein that defends the heart from problems related with blood pressure.
    It seems that there is another reason why men are getting healthier.


  3. Well I am glad to see that this topic is still a sensitive one, I would have thought I’d have at least one person yelling bullshit, but I guess once you talk about Penises, everyone clams up.

  4. I never thought of that before: men are getting healthier because they go to their doctors more often because they want ED pills. That’s funny and plausible. One more joke in italics and I’ll have to report you 🙂
