It's official: Erectile Dysfunction is a Sign of Heart Trouble

"First Come Erectile Ills, Then Heart Troubles," from today's New York Times.
I know that this article skews a little old for my regular readers, but hey--when the Times publishes and article about sex, I pay attention.

And with a gold-mine quote like this, how could I resist?

“The penis is the dipstick of the body’s health,” said Dr. Harry Fisch, director of the Male Reproductive Center at Columbia University Medical Center of New York Presbyterian Hospital.

I hope Dr. Fisch knows how clever he is. It's not every day someone makes such a meta-hilarious comment about the penis and its literal--and figurative--role in the body's health.
