Husband Want Viagra? He'll Need a Note From His Wife If Lawmaker Has Her Way

No nookie without a signed permission slip from the wife, guys! At least that's what one Kentucky politician is proposing with her wife-approved-Viagra law, aka House Bill 396. Oh yes, this is a real thing, and even though she's doing it to make a point against some pro-life legislation in her state, it's still pretty hilarious.


Democratic state representative Mary Lou Marzian has introduced the bill in protest of a law recently signed in Kentucky that requires women contemplating an abortion to speak to a medical counselor about the risks 24 hours before the procedure.

Marzian said that she just wants to "protect men's health" and warn them of any dangerous potential side effects. "I want to protect these men from themselves," she explained.

HB 396 also states that only a married man may obtain the erectile dysfunction drug, and that he must "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."

"This is about family values," she added.

Actually, this is an idea that I'm sure some wives might actually get behind! After years of randy husbands wanting it all the time, don't we ladies deserve a little bit of a reprieve in our golden years? Of course we'll have the little blue pills available ... but only when we're in the mood too.

Of course this law doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of passing ... but it's fun to think about. I bet there would be a lot of happy wives out there with their husbands offering hour-long foot rubs while watching Downton Abbey, just to make sure she feels like her needs are being met too. I'm just saying ... it's not a terrible idea.
