A man was rushed to hospital after taking “Viagra” meant for bulls and ending up with a three-day erection, according to reports.
The unnamed bloke – who was reportedly planning a steamy encounter with a date – is said to have taken the sexual stimulant in Veracruz, Mexico.
The powerful Viagra-like drug – used by farmers to arouse bulls to inseminate cows – left him rock hard for three whole days, Jornada reports.
The randy lad apparently tried to play it cool, hoping its effects would wear off.
But with no sign of this happening it seems he was eventually forced to seek medical help.
A shocking snap claims to show the patient lying on a treatment table after finally plucking up the courage to go to a doctor.
He reportedly needed emergency surgery to get his manhood back to normal, according to La Republica.
Doctors that treated him are quoted as saying: "He was hospitalised in the Specialised Hospital 270 of the city of Reynosa.
“He had taken a sexual stimulant which he had bought in Veracruz, used by farmers in that region to invigorate bulls for insemination.”
It’s not the first report of someone ending up worse for wear after experimenting with a sex drug.
A Brit man ended up hospitalised in agony last year after taking Viagra and then allowing a date to inject his todger with an erection enhancer.
Swansea-born Jazz singer Danny Polaris had an erection for two weeks with doctors at the time warning they faced a "race against time" to save his penis.
And another Brit was warned his willy might “die” after suffering a similar problem caused by a rare reaction to coming off painkillers.
