Viagra overdose ends in tragedy for poor old man trying to impress his younger girlfriend
Maybe we don't give men enough credit for the issues they face regarding their penises. Sure on occasion we talk about how size doesn't matter (when really it does) to make them feel better or if they have problems getting it up we tell them it's totally natural and not to worry about it because it happens to everyone although how would we know unless we've been in that kind of situation with every man in the world. All you need to do is look at the success of Viagra to know that men have penis issues to deal with. Take the case of a 66-year-old man from Gigante, Colombia, who was so desperate to make sure that his penis stood at attention for his younger girlfriend that he overdosed on Viagra. Oh, his penis went up, but it wouldn't go down.

The unnamed ma, who is a farmer and claims to be a former politician, admitted to a local newspaper that he overdosed on purpose. After days of having a perpetual erection that turned painful, he sought medical attention locally and was refered to a medical facility in Neiva. Apparently, his penis was not only inflamed, it was also fractured. He was told that the only solution available was to amputate his penis in order to stop the spread of inflammation and gangrene to the rest of his body.
Horror of horrors!
I know it was pretty dumb of this aging lover to purposely overdose on Viagra, but I can't help but feel sorry for him. I'm sure he had no idea that it would lead to losing his penis. He was trying to impress his new girlfriend and now he has literally NOTHING to show for it.
I wish him a speedy recovery and I genuinely extend my condolences for his loss.
