Sex and after

Sir: Excuse me! Provide free Viagra on the NHS for the estimated 39 per cent of British males over 40 who may be suffering from impotency (report, 18 June)? I am no expert on the statistics for the number of times that the vast majority of males claim to have sex every week - although it always seems astonishingly high. But if this proportion of 40-year-olds now appear to be impotent, an awful lot of men must have been telling porkie pies for years.

It would cost the taxpayer nothing if men ceased to feel that the amount of sex they have is a mark of their virility and their worth and started being honest about it, thereby taking the pressure off themselves to perform - and probably ceasing to be impotent to boot!
