If you experience impotence, instead of a little blue pill maybe you want to apply shockwaves to your privates instead.

(Thanks to many people)

"These are very, very low energy shock waves," Vardi said. Each shockwave applied roughly 100 bar of pressure — some 20 times the air pressure in a bottle of champagne, but less than the pressure exerted by a woman in stiletto heels who weighs 132 lbs. (60 kg)."

Personally I don't shoot champagne bottles at my privates or allow women in stiletto heels stand on them, but that's just me.

That's the Ozzy Osbourne story, right?

Shockwaves to Your Privates?

Ah, science. Proving that applying a woman with stiletto heels to your penis may improve erectile dysfunction.

The juggernaut of Science rolls on.

Shockwaves to privates. Sounds like an AFV bonanza night.

"less than the pressure exerted by a woman in stiletto heels" What?? I think we know what these researchers are thinking about.

Or you could just have some woman in high heels kick you in the groin.

"The men underwent two weekly sessions for three weeks, and then repeated this course of therapy after three weeks of rest."

Averages out to one per week .... just about the level of my sex life too!

i've kept a die-hard battery and jumper cables right by the bed for years in case of just such a medical emergency.

Thanks for sharing that, Kibby!

Actually, I sent in a story a while back about a guy walking down the street who lsot a testicle when an Unknown Woman kicked him in the groanal area (as Archie Buncker would say).

al: you mean that wasn't you in those photos?

Maybe these shockwaves will catch on so well, women can go back to doing their nails IYKWIM.

I would lie and scream, "It's working! It's working! Please, Jack, stop it now--I swear it's working!! For the love of God, please stop!"

t directing shockwaves at penises
So, vibrators for guys?

And if you beat it w/ a shovel it will swell up too....what's the point??

Why is there no mention of this here?

Each site on the penis received some 300 shockwaves over the course of three minutes.

The girl in pumps must be in pretty good shape to administer 1 2/3 shocks per second.

"We also want to see how long this response will stand..."

Sometimes, the joke writes itself.

So whenever a woman tells me to stick my crank in a light socket she is actually being helpful?

There were 20 volunteers for this trial?

I'm shocked - shocked! - shocked! - shocked! - shocked! - shocked! - shocked! ......

rambam-thank you ma'am ?

*snork* @ insomniac

How are those shock waves measured, on the Dichter scale?

applied shockwaves at five different sites on their penises

What 5 sites? Inquiring minds want...
It's just me that wants to know, isn't it?
Thought so.

people, just people. Trying to find their way.
The most complicated have the simplest of answers, thus is our Creator!

There is an easier 'cure', it's called privacy. & privacy is knowing who you believe in

Well, the Sears Diehard battery and a set of jumper cables sure as hell didn't get the job done. I wonder if 220V AC will work. Be right back.

I think that did it! Now if I can just figure out where it landed.

Shock it to me...shock it to me...shock it to me

Brings new meaning to the term "taking a jump."

""We also want to see how long this response will stand — is it forever, one year, two years, six months? We know that at three months, it stays the same." Well, at what point should we consult a dr? Still 4 hours?

I'd kind of like to know where the five points are too DPC. I can think of three..... butt, the last two could hurt really bad.

I'm all for it!!! I'm only 30, and I'm happy to report that my wood works quite well. But the treatment still is appealing. If the therapy is "proven to trigger growth of new blood vessels from existing ones," what would it do for a guy like me? Would I have a new and improved Super Boner?! Would the growth of new blood vessels give me a longer or wider package? What do you guys (and gals) think???

Or you can strip, put on a BG's record and turn up the treble. Same thing.

Wait a minute! Why in *hellck* would you want to aid erectile dysfunction!?! I would think - personally, as a guy of the male gender - you'd want to defeat erectile dysfunction. Could just be me, I guess.

Santa's gonna blow a gasket when he gets this load of requests.

Why no control group? They could easily pretend to be applying the treatment without really doing so.

This treatment also works when you want them to get off the couch and mow the damn lawn.


You mean dead-hard battery, right?

You mean dead-hard, right?
