The bill is sponsored by Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Kentucky Democrat who is a nurse. She told the Courier-Journal newspaper that the legislation is aimed at protecting the health of Kentucky’s men. She wants to make sure they understand the potentially dangerous side effects of erectile dysfunction drugs.

The bill also would require that doctors “prescribe a drug for erectile dysfunction only to a man who is currently married” and “require a man to make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse.”

The bill would also require the current spouse to give the man a signed and dated letter providing her consent for the prescription.

“This is about family values,” Marzian told the Courier-Journal.

  1. Basically the bill is trying to reserve a man's functional erection for his wife whilst ensuring that he has an erectile dysfunction when visiting the jabal. Innovative but impractical.
    To ensure gender equity then female Viagra should only be sold to a married woman if she signs a sworn statement.
