Schoolboys took Viagra at lunch

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Six British schoolboys were rushed to the hospital after taking the erection-enhancing drug Viagra at lunchtime for a dare, the school said Thursday.

Paramedics were called after a fellow student told teachers about the 13-year-olds' prank, a spokesperson for Forest School in Winnersh, in southern England, said.

The local education authority said they think the student took the pills from home and brought them to the all-boys school where he shared them with five friends.

The school has a no drugs policy and the students likely will face punishment, especially the student who brought the pills into school, the education authority said.

The Sun newspaper quoted a source at the school as saying: "By the time the afternoon lessons began, there was no hiding what they had done."

Paramedics took the six squirming boys to the nearby Royal Berkshire Hospital, where they were monitored until the effects wore off.

The effects of Viagra are typically felt for up to 4 hours, according to viagra.com.

There's a joke that's not all that funny. How you can tell the gay children in all boy's school. I wouldn't be suprised if it was ridicule that had brought the "truth" out.

Stern, there's no reason at all to think they're gay - they took Viagra, the effect happens.

Why the hell did they do it during the lunch break? That is the question.

I think Stern is assuming they're gay because they're in an all boys school. And they are taking it as a group of boys in that school. I think a bunch of boys popping viagras together may be at least slightly gay.

I think it's amusing teenage curiosity :P

My guess is that they were not really aware of what they were getting into (the guys who dared them may have been more savvy). They're 13. At that age there's a pecking order based on who has or hasn't passed through puberty yet. This is a particularly sensational variation on the kinds of pranks that 13-year old boys play. Give us all a break with the gay stuff. Check back on the kids in a few years if you're interested enough.

Haha. We should check back on them all right. I bet you they'll all be working for Pfizer. ;)
