What a book promoting dangerous medical devices may look like. Plus, that kind of thing isn't my bag, baby.

TFA: Medicare pays for penis pumps as durable medical equipment -- the same as it does for wheelchairs, home oxygen and bedpans -- as long as a physician prescribes the device as "medically necessary" for treatment of erectile dysfunction.

How is an erection ever medically necessary?

paragraph one:

Medicare payments for penis pumps have soared by more than 500 percent in the past decade

paragraph two:

annual spending on the pumps has gone up from $7.2 million in 2000 to more than $36 million last year

OK, which is it?

If we're going to pay for your penis pumps and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.

If women have a right to free birth control, I have a right to a free penis pump.

When I saw that Medicare was paying for a penis pump, I was excited until I saw it is for a device, and not a hooker.

The hooker is probably cheaper. Bill it out as "dysfunction therapy"

or if those prove ineffective, coverage for implanted penile inflation devices.

paragraph two:

OK, which is it?


7.2 * 5 = 36 or am i missing something?
 
2012-07-11 06:34:29 PM  
Here, have this penis pump. It'll fix your junk.


"Can my wife have birth control?" No, that is gods will. fark women.
 
2012-07-11 06:40:57 PM  
Wait, let me get this straight: A little suction on the penis will help it get erect?

And men are having to buy devices to accomplish this?

Women, you are not doing your jobs!

lockers: 7.2 * 5 = 36 or am i missing something?


Yes.

That's not how to calculate penile volume displacement.
 
2012-07-11 06:49:38 PM  
Eh, it's $36 million in dick-inflating charges. That's a rounding error.
 
2012-07-11 07:06:51 PM  
Actually it's a straightening error.

100% increase would be (initial*1)+(initial)=2x(initial)
500% increase would be (initial*5)+(initial)=6x(initial)

A 500% increase from 7.2 would be 43.2

/Of course, they said "more than $36 million", and $43.2 million would be "more than" $36 million, so they aren't necessarily wrong.
 
2012-07-11 07:15:48 PM  
Ok, let's make a deal. Penis pumps are in for Medicare if medicinal marijuana can be used for Work Comp pain management cases.

Like with Viagra--men immediately die if they can't get a hardon.

Same way birth control pills and devices are not medically necessary. I guess.

I'll never understand why a 60-year-old man expects the American taxpayer to give him the means to have the penis of a 20-year-old man. Can't these old guys just go to M4M on Craigslist? They can find lots of 20-year-old penis there for free!
