According to an article at Fox News Latino, a central-southern American spider’s bit causes a four hour erection.  I wonder if that would make you ignore the lack of muscle control, severe pain and breathing difficulties that the bite of Phoneutria nigriventer caused.  The arachnid, also known as the Brazilian Wandering Spider is now the subject of research, despite the fact that the bite, on occasion, can be lethal.

The venom of this particular arachnid is cocktail of several toxins.  According to Wikipedia, it was “in Guinness World Records 2010 as the world’s most venomous spider”.  While it does not seem like something one would want injected into their body, it is thought that isolating specific molecules from the creature’s venom may have the potential to be a breakthrough for erectile dysfunction.

Research done on rats, indicates that a certain molecule in the venom does assist in erectile dysfunction.  The venom may be a future alternative to Viagra. It impacts Mr. Happy in a different manner, thereby giving those left limp by the current little blue miracle pill another chance.
