An unnamed man from Reynosa, Mexico who was hoping to have a steamy sexual encounter with his date was rushed to a hospital after experiencing a painful three-day erection. At the hospital, he admitted consuming a sexual stimulant meant for breeding bulls in the country.

Seeking to have sex with a 30-year-old woman, the man reportedly traveled from Veracruz in East Mexico to purchase a stimulant that would treat his erectile dysfunction. However, the sexual stimulant he bought turned out to be a kind of drug used by Mexican farmers to breed cattle and bulls and stimulate them for reproduction.

After three days of complaining of painful erection, the unidentified man decided to check himself into a hospital in Reynosa at the U.S.-Mexico border so he could undergo an urgent operation that would help alleviate the erection. He did not deny taking the pills, telling the doctors that he only ingested them to have a successful sexual encounter with his date.

“He was hospitalized in the Specialized Hospital 20 of the city of Reynosa,” a doctor told the reporters. “He had taken a sexual stimulant which he had bought in Veracruz, used by farmers in that region to invigorate bulls for insemination,” the doctor added.

As of this writing, it remains unknown how the surgery went. If it turned out to be unsuccessful, then the likelihood is that the man’s penis will no longer function for erectile purposes.

Meanwhile, the story was quick to spread like wildfire across the web, with several Twitter users posting amusing comments about the story. “Tadalifil does the same thing, ask your GP for some,” one user wrote. “I’ll take a whole pack, please,” another user wrote.

One Twitter user even made fun of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in his tweet, saying, “Get well soon @BorisJohnson.” “They could not have got the coffin lid on if he died,” the user added. Some users also jokingly suggested using other types of Viagra as they made fun of the man’s condition. “He should have tried the new Viagra LIGHT,” one user tweeted.
