Mr. Bean - Rowan AtkinsonLook out Viagra and Cialis. Move over ProSolution Pills. Say goodbye penis exercises! According to a study coming out of Japan there's a new way of alleviating erectile dysfunction problems that comes from a most unlikely source... comedy! That's right, apparently the age old expression 'laughter is the best medicine' may also apply to men who are suffering from ED due to stress related complications. In this article we'll examine the findings and determine whether this is a legitimate solution or just more pointless academic research.

The Physiological/Psychological Connection

It is a widely known fact that mood plays an important role in proper sexual functioning. If a person is experiencing stress or anxiety, it is very likely that the effects will have both a psychological and physiological impact. For men this often translates to lowered testosterone levels and frequent bouts with sexual dysfunction.

Recently a controlled test was performed by researchers from the Moriguchi-Keijinkai Hospital in Japan to determine the effect of watching humorous films on men suffering with erectile dysfunction.

Background

The study consisted of 36 men diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis (AD) - a chronic inflammatory skin disorder often characterized by eczema. Previous research indicated that the symptoms of this condition were exacerbated when patients experienced elevated stress levels. It was also found that many AD patients also suffered from erectile dysfunction (ED). Since prior studies had determined that watching humorous movies helped alleviate the symptoms associated with AD, a new test was commissioned to determine if this type of treatment would have a similar beneficial effect on ED.

The Study

The participants were split into two groups of 18 men and their wives. The first group viewed one comedy per day for three consecutive days. The films included The Best Bits of Mr. Bean, Modern Times and There's Something About Mary. Participants were then instructed to have sex on the following 4 days after viewing. After two weeks they viewed three non-humorous films over the course of three days that featured various weather information. Again they were asked to perform intercourse on the following 4 days. The second group of 18 men followed the exact same criteria except in reverse order - they first viewed non-humorous control films and then after 2 weeks they viewed the humorous films. Samples of blood were taken from the participants prior to viewing the films as well as during each of the days they were instructed to have intercourse.

The Results

Those viewing humorous films experienced a significant increase in sexual hormone levels while those watching the non-humorous control movies experienced no improvement whatsoever. Hormones like testosterone are linked to erectile and orgasmic functioning as well as sexual desire and intercourse satisfaction. Elevated hormone levels therefore have a direct impact on erectile dysfunction problems.

Conclusion

Mr. Bean can fix your penis! Well no, not really. The researchers are quick to point out that the effects are short-lived and last only a few days. They also acknowledge that the improvement may be specific to those suffering from AD as those patients tend to be highly vulnerable to stress. That however may not entirely be true as the researchers state:

"...our preliminary study indicates that viewing humorous films on three consecutive days also improves psychogenic ED in subjects without AD..."

So technically the jury is still out and further tests are needed to confirm their initial findings. I personally don't hold out much hope for this being a viable ED cure. Comedies can certainly help take your mind off of problems and this will reduce stress levels. Stress is, after all, a killer; both in everyday life as well as in the bedroom. Anything you can do to reduce stress is certainly a worthwhile endeavor. I'm just not certain watching funny movies is the way to go about it. Erectile dysfunction itself is no laughing matter for the millions of men suffering worldwide.
