A new sex toy could soon be available on the NHS which claims to help men last up to a staggering 12 hours in bed.
Yeah, seriously. The gadget, which is aptly dubbed ‘Stays-Hard’, apparently holds the penis up to maintain a ‘solid’ erection, even after climax.
And because of its design, it’s believed it can beat problems men of all ages face including erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
Researchers claim that it’s also completely safe to use with condoms and other contraceptives, and can be fitted in just a matter of seconds.
The device, which took five years of research to develop, could be made available as a prescription on the NHS by 2018- that’s if the founder of Tyna International Limited, Richard Wylie, has anything to do with it.
Wylie, who’s a former non-medical partner at a Harley Street clinic, said:
Erectile dysfunction is a nightmare situation. When a man loses potency, it’s like he loses his life. Many men decide not to do anything about it. They don’t want to talk about it and their wives or partners think it’s their fault. If untreated it can lead to the break-up of marriages and relationships.
The product will be the first of its kind in the UK and will cost £40, which seems a bit of a steal considering these issues effect roughly 17 million British men.
Despite this product being primarily aimed at the 40’s to 60’s, with an extreme use of porn now being linked to erectile dysfunction, this problem is also becoming more prevalent in younger people.
It’s estimated that seven per cent of men in their 20’s and 11 per cent in their 30’s suffer with the affliction.
Mr Wylie, 70, who has suffered erectile dysfunction himself following problems with his prostate, added:
I’m not unique. Most men over 40 will notice their erections aren’t as strong as they used to be. This is the best thing since sliced bread. I’ve used it myself and I wouldn’t back any product I didn’t fully believe in. It’s fantastically simple and effective, and essentially promotes relationship harmony.
He went on to claim that it can be used by any blokes who also suffer with diabetes, heart problems, prostate cancer and even just guys who are simply nervous after a long time out of the dating game.
