Yikes! They polled a couple thousand guys and found that half the men in the UK, in their thirties, “struggle to get an erection” (https://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/health/men-30s-hit-impotence-epidemic-12541561).
Why? Well, 49% blame stress, 24% cite an over-fondness for alcoholic beverages, 36% say they’re just too tired, and 29% blame anxiety. And don’t blame me for that coming out to 133%. Maybe someone’s abacus is broken. Or maybe a lot of guys gave more than one main reason for being stuck in neutral.
And “another one-third have broken up with their partners as a result.” “Pratners” is a word implying indiscriminate fornication.
So… Just like we’ve got this communications revolution but can’t think of much to say, we’ve got this great sexual revolution that leaves half its male participants unable to get out of the starting gate. And I’d better wind up this post in a hurry, because I’m running out of decorous euphemisms.
Hello? Is there anyone out there who really, truly doesn’t know culture rot when they see it? I keep on saying, “Kill the culture, and the culture will kill you back,” but the movers and shakers ain’t hearin’ it. They’d rather just keep on killing the culture.
We have oversexed our popular culture–and undersexed the people who live in it. What a trick! Way to go!
