Saltburn bred hamsters deliver more than a painful bite that sends most victims to the hospital according to Professor B.S. Totter of Hull University. Their venom stimulates an hours-long erection. Now scientists have figured out the chemical that seems to be responsible for the penis boost.
The hamsters concerned come from the infamous Attack Rodent Institute in Ruby Street Saltburn. Staff in casualty at Saltburn Hospital can immediately spot the victims of a bite from a Saltburn attack hamster. Patients not only experience overall pain and an increase in blood pressure, they also sport an uncomfortable erection.
"The erection is a side effect that everybody who gets bitten by this hamster will experience along with the pain and discomfort," said study team member Christine Bleach of the Medical College of Boosbeck. "We're hoping eventually this will end up in the development of real drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction."
