The same phones that help people get laid are apparently also preventing men from achieving liftoff in the sack. Xinhua News reports that Taiwan hospitals are now seeing more and more erectile dysfunction sufferers aged 20-30, whose girlfriends blame their impotence on playing too many cell phone games.
Kaohsiung Medical University practitioners say in the last 20 years there’s been an upward trend (poor choice of words) in erectile dysfunction sufferers aged under 40. They cite many reasons, among them smoking, but also Taiwan mens’ habit of staying up all night playing cell phone games.
Researchers say all-nighters may cause a fluctuation in hormones (maybe it has something to do with those video game-induced blood clots too). One UK study even found that that one in three men would rather play video games than have sex. Though if Angry Birds is turning you on more than your girlfriend you might want to consider a break up.
If this somewhat questionable find is true, we think it’s only fair that cell phone manufacturers rectify this by offering an app that cures erectile dysfunction. How long must we wait for “iBone?”
