You want to regulate our ovaries, uteri and order us to carry state-mandated children? Well, fine. We want to regulate your erectile dysfunction.

 

That’s the message of state Democratic Senator Nina Turner’s erectile dysfunction bill in Ohio (SB307). The bill is meant to inflict the same sort of humiliation and violation of privacy on men as mostly male legislators are inflicting upon women across the country, but is wisely being sold under the exact same disingenuous “concern” as Republicans sell their attempts to control women’s wombs.

 

Turner sweetly pointed out, “I certainly want to stand up for men’s health and take this seriously and legislate it the same way mostly men say they want to legislate a woman’s womb.”

 

SB 307 requires that:

 

(A) No person other than a physician shall issue to a patient a prescription for a drug intended to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction.


(B) Prior to issuing a prescription for a drug intended to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction, a physician shall do all of the following:


(1) Obtain from the patient a notarized affidavit in which at least one of the patient’s sexual partners certifies that the patient has experienced symptoms of erectile dysfunction in the ninety days preceding the date on the affidavit;


(2) Refer the patient to a sexual therapist approved by the state medical board for an assessment of the possible causes of the patient’s symptoms of erectile dysfunction and obtain a written report in which the therapist concludes that the patient’s symptoms are not solely attributable to one or more psychological conditions;


(3) Conduct a cardiac stress test and obtain a result, described in writing, indicating that the patient’s cardiac health is compatible with sexual activity;


(4) Notify the patient in writing of the potential risks and complications associated with taking drugs intended to treat erectile dysfunction and obtain the patient’s signature on a form acknowledging the patient’s receipt of the notification;


(5) Declare in writing, under penalty of perjury, that the drug the physician is prescribing is necessary to treat the patient’s symptoms of erectile dysfunction and attach to the declaration a statement that clearly describes the physician’s medical rationale for issuing the prescription;


(6) Place all documents described in divisions (B)(1) to (5) of this section in the patient’s medical record and retain the documents as part of that record for not less than seven years.

These steps are all sound medical suggestions that are often overlooked out of courtesy to a man’s ego and in deference to his privacy.

 

Sen. Turner defended her bill as standing up for men’s health, “Even the FDA recommends that doctors make sure that assessments are taken that target the nature of the symptoms, whether it’s physical or psychological. I certainly want to stand up for men’s health and take this seriously and legislate it the same way mostly men say they want to legislate a woman’s womb.”

 

The take away is that Senator Turner is going to use legislation to “protect men’s health”, just as Republicans are using legislation to control women under the auspices of protecting health.

 

There’s nothing like a first hand experience of governmental overreach punishing citizens for things they have no control over and controlling their private organs to help Americans decide that the Republican war on women must stop immediately. Senator Turner is reminding lawmakers that they are setting a precedent that can be applied both ways.

We’re only doing it because “we care”, cried the white men legislating themselves into control over every American woman’s body. Guess what, boys? This ain’t the 1950s and you will pay a price for the relentless war on women. See state Senators Turner and Davis for starters.

 

We’re mad and we’re not going to take it anymore. And, oh, hey, please proceed because we’re just getting warmed up.

They have ads on TV here, with a bunch of old guys testifying how some mini Hoover crotch vacuum cleaner or something is bringing back all that "true love" that was missing. No drugs. No medical exams. Seems very cost efficient. Order now and you can get two of them, just pay the shipping and handling.

 

Wonder if they can get these under Obamacare? Be really great if they took care of the ED and you could do some dusting of those hard to reach places, too.

Amen. Now we can finally agree.

 

I find these all fair suggestions. I wonder why they are not already done.

 

 

 

I'm sure some idiots will say this is a "war on men" but they will be just as idiotic of those proclaiming the "war on women"

 

While we are at it, lets eliminate any public funding for men or womens sexual practices. How much can we save for not supporting Viagra or birth control or abortions???

 

Kudos to the senator for standing up!!

I like Senator Nina Turner :)

We definitely should support her as well as all those who stand up for more sensible medical practices with women's health issues too.

 

Like I said, it'd also be great to end all public funding of erectile dysfunction, birth control and abortion.

You know men aren't going to allow public funding of Viagra, Calias etc. to end. Ask the other men on this forum how they feel about it.

Old, but not there yet. Could change any day now though as I just turned 59 this week. Into GILFS now.

Men are better off when it doesn't work anymore. Then women have true equality. You don't need them for anything. Men can just unload them. Football, sports talk, beer, hunting, cards, and all the other things that women are always trying to curtail immediately become more available. No more getting shut off for so called bad behavior. I am almost there (middle sixties) and am looking forward to the day when I can tell my girlfriend to go find a young stud. Free at last, free at last.

Guess we all have a different libido levels, I for one am not looking forward to the day that I can't get it up.......

Am I wrong that it appears that you take sex as a penance and not a pleasure....

I guess funny things happen as we age, I remember my Grandfather, while in his 70s, telling me that a good dump was as satisfying as sex....

 

And kudos to the Ohio Senator ....good for her ♀

Agreed, no more than bc pills. If ya wanna sport fuck, well, pay the price of admission.

That's my point. This plan will backfire because we won't be led to believe we are having our "rights" stepped on by not getting our bills paid for us.

bs, as usual. I can list hundreds of legislative bills and conservative comments that support the "war on women" point of view.

No, what she is saying is completely relevant. Read the OP.

No, it is apples and oranges. The first concerns a growing human; the second the possibility (or not) of implanting half the genetic material.

 

And none of it should come out of our pockets.
