Sexual Side Effects of Chemotherapy
Most people expect certain side effects of chemotherapy like hair loss and nausea, but they are usually surprised when it affects a very personal part of their life --  their sex life. The sexual side effects of chemotherapy are plenty, but what you experience and the severity greatly depends on what chemotherapy drug(s) you are taking and at what dose.  From the loss of sexual desire to male impotence, chemotherapy's sexual side effects can pose unique challenges in the bedroom.

Benefit of statins for impotence uncertain
Conclusion Overall, this study provides some evidence that treatment for six weeks with atorvastatin (Lipitor) improved some measures of erectile dysfunction (but not to within the normal range) compared with vitamin E or placebo. There are some limitations to this study, some of which are described by the authors: As this study only included men who had previously had their erectile dysfunction treated with sildenafil (Viagra) and showed no improvement, the study findings do not apply to men yet to receive drug therapy for their erectile dysfunction. This study was of short duration (six weeks), so long-term outcome...

The soft option
More than 100 British sex offenders have volunteered for 'chemical castration'. But do the drugs make them harmless?Barry was sentenced to life in prison in 1976 for murdering a man, a random stranger who'd refused him a light for his cigarette. He didn't think of himself as a sex offender. He is a voyeur – "That's my thing. I like to look" – and has never been convicted of a sexual offence."But no woman, no girl, was safe if I was in a room with them. It could be any girl, from the age of 13 to 60 – I would ensure that I would be sat in a position where I could see up her skirt. Or if...

NHS Choices assessment of press reports about ginseng being 'new Viagra'
Source: NHS Choices Area: News NHS Choices has conducted an assessment of a press report in the Daily Mail about ginseng being the 'new Viagra.'   The headline was based on an 8 week RCT which compared two groups of 59 men with mild-to-moderate erectile dysfunction, who were assigned to a ginseng extract pill or a placebo pill. The study reported that ginseng did not improve sexual dysfunction more than placebo across the vast majority of areas tested; the only exception was ejaculation function, which was statistically better than placebo, but the improvement was still very modest. The study was published in the...

Claims ginseng is 'new Viagra' just don’t stand up
Conclusion This randomised control trial comparing 59 men taking ginseng extract pills to 59 men taking placebo pills for eight weeks found that ginseng did not improve sexual dysfunction more than placebo across a range of areas (erectile function, intercourse satisfaction, orgasmic function, sexual desire and overall sexual satisfaction). Those taking ginseng showed a small but significant improvement in erectile dysfunction score compared to those on a placebo dummy pill. The research authors’ conclusions put an overly positive spin on the results of this well designed study. They concluded that “oral admini...

Viagra gives plants a lift
Nitric oxide, the chemical at the heart of the drug's success, could work wonders on the food and flower industries, writes Paul SimonsHe had a hunch that Viagra might work the same magic on plants so he put some into a vase of cut flowers and found they stayed fresh and perky for up to a week longer than usual. Just 2% of the dose needed to treat a bout of male impotence brought a new lease of life to roses, carnations and African daisies."The flowers looked much fresher, their colour remained longer, and they were also much more turgid," reported Leshem. No one is suggesting spraying Viagra over plants to stave...
