Ginsing Up and Erection Situation(26 posts)

Ginsing Up and Erection Situationohmk1
May 22, 2002 10:36 AM
My buddy suggested I try a Ginsing fortified drink before a century this past Sunday. I think it was called Ginsing Up. He said it gives a real rush, better even than Red Bull. I didn't experience any rush, I did however experience a very embarassing, and uncomfortable erection while riding. It lasted for about the first 40 miles of the ride. Anyone experience this type of situation with Ginsing? I for one will never try it again.

"I for one will never try it again."

Not even off the bike? You know, they're not always embarrassing and uncomfortable. ;-)

drafting a Swedish bikini team, or your buddy pulled a fast one on you and spiked your drink with a well-known Pfizer product that rhymes with Niagara.

Actually, I think my buddy was pulling a fast one on me. I just related the story to a co-worker (originally from Hong Kong), and he said Asians have been using Ginsing to put lead in your pencil (his words, not mine!!!) for centuries!!! My buddy is a known practical joker, I should have known better.
I will get my revenge!!!
sorry-- but the image i got of you riding was hilarious! (nm)ColnagoFE

hilarious?-not reallyohmk1

I guess it's kind of funny now, but the reality is that my day, and overall time was effected by the situation. for the first 40 or so miles my average speed was around 12-15 mph-considerably slower than what I was hoping to achieve.
Did you stop at any rest stopsPhatMatt

And if so did you get off the bike. That would be bad standing in line to use the can.

A 40 miler? That's hilarious.

You know every last one of the guys here, maybe even the women, too, are going to rush out and buy a case of the stuff.

Now, if you were Cippo...Ahimsa

...or any rider possessing some talent with the fairer sex, you'd have begged off the ride for a more appropriate recreation. Much better exercise anyway, and you'd be applauded for taking LONGER to finish.

Ah, me.

Cheers!

I apreciate the cycling talents of Cippo, however wouldn't you agree that he's the Liberace of cycling?
So no, I wouldn't be Cippo.

GINSENG UP

Ginseng is positioned as an adult premium soft drink that is refreshingly healthy with oriental mystique and aphrodisiac properties.

GET ONE UP……GINSENG UP!!!!

hmm, sounds like you got a double whammy there big boy! and it looks so innocuous and refreshing...
the warning is in the angle of the ginseng root image :-) NmSpirito
