These ‘All-Natural’ Boner Pills Actually Contain Viagra

A hard pill to swallow for consumers.

By Molly Fitzpatrick

The bodega experience wouldn’t be the same without an imposing wall of over-the-the-counter sexual supplements like Sexy Monkey, which alluringly promises both “extra long time lasting sex” and “rock hard erection.” Though the labels may insist their contents are “all-natural” – made of sunbeams, daisy petals, and the twinkle in your great-grandfather’s eye when he first spotted your great-grandmother – their true provenance is questionable at best. 

An FDA analysis of Sexy Monkey and six other supplements distributed by the same company determined that they contain sildenafil and tadalafil, the active ingredients in boner prescriptions like Viagra and Cialis. Midwest Wholesale has issued a voluntary recall of Boost Ultra, XZone Gold, Sexy Monkey, Triple MiracleZen Platinum, Magic for Men, "New" Extenze, and New XZen Platinum. (All of those product names are real, except one. Can you guess which we made up? Scroll down to find out.) We suspect this could prove to be one of the rare recalls that actually boosts sales.

Please subject the things you insert into your body to careful scrutiny, and remember: when in doubt, there’s always Horny Goat Weed.
