In what might be the most startling COVID news to men around the world, doctors say the virus that has caused so much pain and suffering is also responsible for the startling ‘COVID d–k’ phenomenon.
What’s COVID d–k? Doctors say it’s an erectile dysfunction brought on by a lack of erections over a period of time that then causes shrinkage. That’s right, the lack of boning up while down with the ‘VID is leading to smaller penises and it’s setting off alarm bells with urologists who are paid to solve these issues.
Dr. Ashley Winter, an Oregon urologist, told the New York Post that “COVID d–k is a real thing,” but that it can be treated with some penis exercises.
This is great news for OutKick founder Clay Travis who revealed Thursday that he has tested positive for Omicron ‘VID while noting that he also had the first edition of COVID way back in the day.
That’s right, he could be facing a severe case of COVID d–k if he doesn’t take Dr. Winter’s advice.

“The main reason that we think [COVID d–k] occurs is something what we call endothelial dysfunction,” she explained. “That’s basically the cells that line your blood vessels… and they’re really important for the function of many different organs.”
“And because the erection is a blood flow-event … When those blood vessels are affected, you can get the erectile dysfunction,” she added.
Now, this is where the penis exercises come into play. Winter and other urologists suggest doing “penis push-ups” or getting your hands on a “penis vacuum” to get those inches back.
She’s suggesting getting on Viagra or Cialis to get that blood flowing again and then adding in the penis exercises. The “penis push-ups” call for using a penis pump to encourage blood flow.
“These are easy things you can do at home to either prevent shortening or actually get back length that you’ve lost,” Winter told Slate.
