Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey There Mr. Sticky Fingers,

You've burped the nephew every day for 11 years? BRAVO! One wonders what it would take to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Regarding your question, your fears that you may have worn out your home entertainment center are unfounded. In fact, quite the opposite. Frequent wankers often have overall better sexual function than blue-balled sex-phobic rightwing conservatives who tend to cum in their pants while watching Bowflex infomercials.

Most likely you are just having performance anxiety. (Or perhaps your partner looks like Katherine Harris or worse Dick Cheney?) If you have no difficulty getting rock hard when Mrs. Palm and her five daughters (or Mr. Palm and his five strapping sons) comes to call, then you're not really having physical erectile-dysfunction problems. However, if Mr. Happy has become Mr. Softy all the time, you'll need to see your doctor for an evaluation of erectile dysfunction.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
