FELLAS up North take more Viagra-style drugs to boost their love lives than anywhere else in the country.
And it is blokes in the aptly named East Riding of Yorkshire who can’t get enough of the little blue pills.
The number of men prescribed the erectile dysfunction treatment there was double that of Leicester, which had the fewest.
Men in the North as a whole are prescribed it far more than those in the South, NHS figures show.
Other areas with the highest proportion of male patients needing help to keep their peckers up include Rotherham, Barnsley, St Helens, Northumberland and North Yorkshire.
But large areas of London, Stoke-on-Trent and Berkshire were far less likely to see their men asking assistance for their bedroom activities.
Last year around 700,000 men in England were given Viagra or its unbranded form Sildenafil at some point, racking up a £19million bill for the NHS.
Across England’s 106 clinical commissioning groups, around one in every 40 men were prescribed a Viagra-style medication last year.
Among the ten CCGs that prescribed the drugs to the highest proportion of men the rate was around one in every 33 men, while in the lowest prescribing areas the figure was one man in every 54.
