Have you experienced an unexplained prolonged boner out of nowhere that refuses to calm down even after applying an ice pack? Doctors are now saying you could be dealing with a rare COVID complication that could leave you in a horrible predicament. Researchers now believe the ‘VID can leave some patients with priapism where guys remain erect for many hours without stimulation.
That’s right, the ‘VID can cause you to bone up and to remain stuck in that situation for hours upon hours, according to Ohio doctors who wrote in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine about a patient who was dying from COVID, but then nurses noticed he was erect.
The blood was drained from the patient’s penis and the erection issue was taken care of, but the man eventually died from the disease, the doctor’s wrote.
In June 2020 during a separate case, doctors blamed blood clotting due to priapism/COVID for a 62-year-old man’s four-hour-plus erection.
As if us guys don’t have enough to worry about in life like cutting the grass on Thursday night so the yard looks amazing for the weekend, now we have to be concerned every time a mystery erection comes along. It could be the wind blowing in the correct direction. It could be making initial eye contact with a beautiful golf course. It could be caused at work while thinking about crushing multiple beers on a Saturday while the kids are at grandma’s and your wife is out doing who knows what with her girlfriends. Or pleats.
Women think erections are the result of one thing. Us men know they can be caused via a variety of arousing situations. What doctors are telling you here is that if that bone cause by the wind doesn’t settle down in the normal timeframe, you need to have that thing checked out. You could have the ‘VID.
In other words, just be careful out there, fellas. Bone safety first.
