A slippery soapbox indeed

A TALMUDIC QUESTION:

A well respected San Francisco psychoanalyst raises the following question in the hopes that Talmudic scholars might think more about it:

Is it okay for Jews to take Viagra on Sabbath?

One rabbi says that Jewish law forbids the ingestion of Viagra on Sabbath, lest one violate the infraction of erecting a structure on the Sabbath. But another rabbi says that as a medication which adds pleasure to the Sabbath (not to mention the rest of the week), it is permissible. However, taking Viagra is taboo during Passover - as well as any other agent that causes things to rise.

Which raises (you'll excuse the expression) yet another question: What blessing does an observant Jew say before taking the Viagra pill?

There is a choice of three blessings:

1. Boruch Atah HaShem zokeif kfuffim -- Bless you Lord for straightening those who are bent;

2. Boruch Atah HaShem yaaleh vyavo -- Bless you Lord for causing things to arise and come; or

3. Boruch Atah HaShem mechayei hameitim -- Bless you Lord for raising the dead.
rude, crude, and lewd
