Brazilian Spider Bite May Become the Next Viagra

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the Is-that-a-spider-in-your-pocket? dept.

Medicine 144

An anonymous reader writes "Scientists believe a spider could lead to a breakthrough in sexual health after finding a single bite can cause a four-hour erection. According to the report, researchers at the Medical College of Georgia believe the venom of the Brazilian wandering spider could lead to a new cure for erectile dysfunction. Dr Kenia Nunes, a physiologist at the college, said it works in a different way to Viagra. 'This is good because we know that some patients don't respond to the conventional therapy. This could be an optional treatment for them,' she said. Her study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved experiments using hypertensive rats with severe erectile dysfunction."

Where Is The Bite? (1)

'This is good because we know that some patients don't respond to the conventional therapy. This could be an optional treatment for them,'

A spider bite is considered conventional therapy? BTW, where does the spider need to bite them? If it's, um, 'south of the border' then I think this isn't going to be as profitable as they hope.

BTW, where does the spider need to bite them?

I was bitten by a P. Nigriventer once in Brazil, I was walking through a lawn wearing flip-flops and it bit me in the toe. I think I was fortunate that it wasn't in the "armed" position, so the bite just glanced me and I didn't get the full poison load. I stepped on the spider to kill it and a biologist neighbor identified it for me.

I had a painful toe for a few hours, but that was all.

Can't say about the sex boost, since I was 16 at the time and a nearly continuous hard on is a fact of life at that age.

The Nigriventer is so deadly because of the large amount of poison it can inject, up to 8 ml. I knew a family who lost a 4 year old soon to a bite. The spider was hidden in the child's shoe and bit him in the foot. A good practice in the country in Brazil is to shake boots and shoes before wearing them.

When Insects get bit by a Braz. Wan. Spid.? (0)

When Insects get bit by a Brazilian Wandering Spider, do they become sexually potent that their little stingers rear-up and attack tourists with surprise sexing?

HINT: All Insects are a group of organizsms in which their gender roles are reversed, thereby the stinger is actually a phalus that deposits eggs or venom rather than sperm, yet it is the female that has the phallus while the male is somewhat disowned in terms of mortal combat; yes, all stinging Insects are female and all social Insects of a caste system forming a predominant female host are the kinds of full-on Lesbian psychosis that I would endure to the end of my glans....bring.it.on!

Above poster has not yet run into the deadly Alaskan Micro Shoe-Bear. Only 1 inch tall, it is the most feared mammal of its kind. Not only does it have claws but also a stinger. Once it stings your toe, you will have a toe-erection that lasts for life. Often, it knocks down cabin doors in search of booze and loose women, and if finding none, wreaks havoc on any karaoki equipment you may have in the cabin. I dunno why Wikipedia keeps rejecting my entry on this, it's based on years of scientific research.

I may get whooshed on this, but I'm assuming you are not making some form of obtuse joke.

The conventional therapy is Viagra (as mentioned in the previous sentence of the summary).

Since the spider venom works in a different way than Viagra does, I'm assuming the point here is that a drug based on the spider venom might work on some patients that do not respond to Viagra. So if Viagra doesn't get Mr. Johnson ready for some action, ask your doctor if Spideyagra is right for you (insert list of possible side effects)!

Re:Where Is The Bite? (1)

rubycodez (864176) | more than 3 years ago | (#35458000)

there is another treatment, as an alternative for those who do not respond well to oral PDE5 inhibitors such as Viagra, that involve hypodermic injection of drugs such as alprostadil into the base of the penis. Not impossible that the spider venom might be found to be best administered this way

I might be a bit harsh here, but if nature has determined that you're too old to be breeding and you can't get it up, maybe you should stop fucking. One might go so far as to say that if you can't get it up and you're a younger person, you maybe shouldn't be breeding, either (sort of how certain people don't seem to be able to conceive children *together*, as nature's sort of way of preventing some asstarded attrocity -- or a litter of them -- from being foisted upon the genetic pool) . . . but I would probably extend some sympathy to the younger guys, since not being able to get it up when you're still young and have the desire to get it up is probably insanely frustrating.

Also, thanks, but I'll take a limp dick over letting a spider bite me (and probably find some way to lay its nasty eggs in me, only to have them hatching and crawling out of my urethra in the tens of thousands later on).

Interesting link. Since a black widow spider bite is a known cause of priapism, how the OP news?

Re:Four hour erection? (1)

rubycodez (864176) | more than 3 years ago | (#35458032)

could it possibly be because the other symptoms of black widow bite include "local pain, followed by localized or generalized severe muscle cramps, abdominal pain, weakness, and tremor. Large muscle groups (such as shoulder or back) are often affected, resulting in considerable pain. In severe cases, nausea, vomiting, fainting, dizziness, chest pain, and respiratory difficulties may follow." -- ehealthmedicine.com

Interesting article. In particular, I liked the following assertion:

Other causes of priapism include:
[...]
        * Illicit drug use, such as marijuana and cocaine

I got curious and searched for priapism and marijuana on Google Scholar. The first link [hindawi.com] contains quotes such as:

To date, no specific case of priapism and marijuana was found in the literature.

Cute.

Re:FUD (1)

CityZen (464761) | more than 3 years ago | (#35458076)

That's probably a result of poor editing. Perhaps a previous version merely said "Illicit drug use" (which is likely true, for the right values of "drug"), and later some editor expanded it (incorrectly inserting wrong values of "drug"), imagining that he was clearing things up.

In the event of an erection that persists longer than 4 hours, the patient should seek immediate medical assistance. If priapism is not treated immediately, penile tissue damage and permanent loss of potency could result.

Phoneutria nigriventer, sometimes called Brazilian wandering spiders or banana spiders, are hairy and unsightly little creatures said to have some of the world’s most toxic venoms. Aside from four hours of supposed pleasure, the venom will also incapacitate a person’s muscle control, cause severe pain and trigger breathing problems.

For some people, perhaps, but I have a hard time getting aroused by myself; I need stimulation from another person to be able to maintain arousal. Secondly, a vibe simply doesn't fill the need for a warm body, the sense of skin against skin, or the weight of another human on top of you.

Once you've got a few... treat your spiders well, and they'll last a lifetime, especially if you breed them, they'll probably live longer than you will, no more $20 per dose.

I'm over 60 years old and, with the right woman, hell, even with Five-Finger Mary, could easily crank up a 4-hour boner, no blue pill required.

WTF is wrong with men these days? Viagra et al are an effin giant industry. I must watch bad ads on TV and get spammed just because you guys can't get it up. For God's sake, get yourselves a goddam' spider so I don't have to listen to yet another "E.D." ad in the middle of Star Trek.

"E.D"... - hah, makes me laugh! Bunch of pussies! And get offa my lawn!

Want a nice & hard banana? Just get stung by our patent pending banana spider!

Also safe with poppers, for those of you who prefer your banana brown...

Pills? (1)

How do you recognize this spider? It's the one with nine legs, of course.

Mezcal, psyliocybin, some weed, and a cute little brunette had much the same effect on me around 1986. Except it lasted ALL NIGHT. Muahauhuahahauhahahaha!

Wow...I must REALLY be afraid of spiders... (1)

...because even the prospect of a 4-hour erection under the BEST of circumstances (i.e., in the presence of someone with whom I would like to exploit said erection, and who would also be thus inclined) isn't enough to let a spider bite me.

Well, then... (1)

I, for one, welcome our new hyper-tensed, hyper-libidinous, ragingly erected, iron-manly rat overlords. Rat patriarchs walking around with pet spiders ought to be an interesting sight.
