Viagraholics Anonymous
image Sex addiction can be real enough, but Viagraholics Anonymous, a site dedicated to helping men who are addicted to Viagra, seems a bit tongue-in-cheek. For instance, take this testimony from Ben, a recovering Viagraholic: "I turned to the Internet and ordered more Viagra online, from two or three sites at a time, to maintain my supply. The days that followed are just a blur. Mornings I'd wake up on the couch, my pants around my ankles with another damned erection, then take a cold shower and stagger into work. I'd be walking around with an obvious erection in my pants, unaware that people were laughing at me behind my back." Ben's problem sounds a little like something out of a Clive Barker story.

Viagra claims isn't habit forming, but sex is.

wait! it must be a hoax! the answer is in the name. "Viagraholic," like "workaholic," and "chocoholic," are all spin-offs of "alcoholic." They took the word "alcohol" and added "ic." All 3 are wrong because there's no such thing as "workahol," "chocohol," or "viagrahol." But there IS such a thing as ALCOHOL. If people were being accurate they would say "workic," "chocic," and "viagara-ic." But that just sounds stupid. I think people should stop crampin' alcoholic's style and stop saying dumb words like workaholic.

I to am deeply offended by the term Viagraholic...

Wait, no I'm not. And then vision of some fictional poor bastard wandering around the office with a hard on popping through his trousers while his coworkers giggle behind his back is going to keep me snickering all day. I'm snickering right now thinking of it.
