Olisbos or ollapods' ophelimic officinal option...

From angina to vagina: this Friday, the drug sildenafil citrate, better known as Viagra, loses its UK patent; the 15 years are up, and that's not the only thing! (OK, OK!). The first oral cure for impotence will suddenly have a lot of competition. It certainly works but was it the sexual be-all-and-end-all that people think? No, not really, as Miss Cox (nice name for a sex therapist) says, "Suddenly, men thought anything could be solved by a pill...If only that were true." Charlie Cooper's article in yesterday's Independent makes interesting reading, if you had the paper copy you'd also see the ad for a free tablet...or was that from PC World?

ophelimity: n. - the ability to please (not necessarily sexually)
ollapod: n. - pharmacist
officinal: adj. - used in medicine; stocked by pharmacists; n. such drug.
olisbos: n. - a dildo (readers of Owsblog may remember this word)
As so often, Owsblog obscure words from Luciferous Logolepsy.

Saw a woman on an American programme shown on UK TV the other week complaining that cruises for the Over 60's were now full of randy old men with apparently limitless supplies of Cialis.

haha, not a good prospect, a captive 'audience' unless the old biddies are good swimmers!
