Man suffers three-day erection after taking Viagra for bulls

A Mexican man had to undergo surgery after a Viagra-type drug for bulls left him with an erection that lasted for three days.

The man, whose name and age weren’t released, told doctors he’d been planning on getting nasty with a 30-year-old woman, according to La Republica. Wanting to impress her, he picked up an erectile dysfunction drug with a little more kick to it than normal Viagra has. “He had taken a sexual stimulant which he had bought in Veracruz,” the newspaper quotes his doctor as saying. “It’s used in that region to invigorate bulls for insemination.”

While the drug did work, it worked a little too well. Three days later, he was still standing at attention — and in serious pain. So doctors had to cut him open to temporarily block the flow of blood to his penis, La Republica reports. There’s no word on how the man’s recovering from the troubling surgery.
