Now My Pants Are Chafing Me

Depending on your preference, you either want to start paying more or less attention to athlete's crotches. The new wave in performance-enhancing drugs is here and it's long, strong and down to get the friction on.

The Australian reports that athletes are turning to Viagra to improve their performance.

"It has become so widespread that the World Anti-Doping Agency is considering whether to include Viagra on its list of substances banned in international sports."
The head of a World Anti-Doping Agency accredited lab notes that Viagra and Cialis frequently turn up in drug tests and busts.
Experts believe that Viagra, which dilates blood vessels, could help in events requiring explosive power, such as sprinting. Others suggest it could help endurance - not so much marathon sex sessions as marathon running - particularly at high altitude or in polluted conditions, such as those expected at the Beijing Olympics. The drug is believed to aid the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscles.
One would think the increased use of sexual enhancing drugs would lead to some awkward situations. A hard-on has to throw off a javelin throw or the swing of a baseball bat. Pitching inside definitely takes on a new, dangerous meaning. Viagra-using athletes might also want to stay away from Andrew Golota.
