Male strippers are ‘more likely to be flops in the bedroom’

Not so Magic Mike! Male strippers are more likely to be IMPOTENT as seven out of ten admit to relying on aids like Viagra to help bedroom performance

  • Researchers suggest male strippers are more likely to be flops in the bedroom 
  • Seven in ten performers admitted they relied on aids such as drugs, jabs or rings
  • Academics from the University of Miami found this in the first study of its kind

Male strippers may look fun when up on stage but scientists suggest they are more likely to be flops in the bedroom.

Researchers found men working in the adult entertainment industry were up to eight times more likely to be impotent compared to those of a similar age.

Seven in ten performers admitted they relied on aids such as drugs, jabs or rings, academics from the University of Miami discovered.

‘But this study suggests it does have a toll. The likely lifestyle, such as taking anabolic steroids, as well as a cocktail of other drugs will raise impotence risk.
