Note From Your Wife Needed For Use Of Kentucky Viagra

Now if you are a male in Kentucky and want to just pop a Viagra to pep up your performance, then you can't do it alone.

You need your wife's written permission to authorise your request.

A bill, HB 396, sponsored by Democrat Rep. Mary Lou Marzian of Kentucky, also called for a couple of visits to the doctor before buying the drug.

"I want to protect these men from themselves," said Marzian, a nurse, according to the Courier Journal.

The bill would also require doctors to "prescribe a drug for erectile dysfunction only to a man who is currently married" and "require a man to 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."

Marzian's bill follows another state bill calling for women to take a doctor's consultation at least 24 hours before undergoing an abortion. Being an abortion rights supporter, Marzian had not supported the "informed consent" bill.

"Do we really want a bunch or legislators interfering in private, personal, medical decisions?" Marzian asked, adding that "this is about family values."

"We are very 'family values' in the Kentucky General Assembly - they are all awash in Christian family values, so that's why I put that part in there that [erectile pills] can only be used in a marital relationship," Marzian affirmed.
