You know who also has trouble getting it up? Annoying nanny-state morons who try to micro-manage every waking moment of your life.
Mayor Bloomberg has begun a hard-sell campaign to discourage young people from smoking: It could destroy their sex lives.
The city Health Department’s “NYC Quits” Web site warns that young men who smoke cigarettes are more likely to suffer erectile dysfunction in middle age.
And females are more likely to become infertile.
“Men who smoke can have trouble getting and keeping an erection. Quitting smoking can decrease the risk of erectile dysfunction,” the site says.
Male impotence, or ED, is caused by a lack of sufficient blood flow to the penis. Inhaling carcinogen-laden tobacco smoke for years can lead to ED because it disrupts the ability of the heart to pump the necessary level of blood needed to achieve and maintain an erection, studies found.
Please, just go away.
