smartphones blamed for reduced sex drives

Men who play games on their smartphones late into the night are at risk of erectile dysfunction, warn Taiwanese doctors.

According to publication China Times, an increased number of men in their 20s are visiting urologists.

One report details a man of 28 attended to by Doctor Wang (yes, really) of Kaohslung Medical Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital complaining of ‘poor bedroom performance’.

“Addiction to smartphone games is a main cause of his erectile dysfunction. It has reduced his sexual drive," Wang told the China Times.

Reportedly, after quitting smoking and cutting back on late night gaming the man’s condition has ‘greatly improved’.
