Does it strike anyone else as funny that we're obsessed with maintaining erectile dysfunction in the elderly (all those ads for Viagra, Cialis…etc.), while at the same time we do everything we can to thwart healthy "erectile function" in teenage boys.

…Actually, YOU CAN'T PUT THAT ASIDE. Just as with the War on Drugs, it's utterly illogical to defend a course of action based on what you hope it will achieve, when it's obviously failed to achieve that goal in practice.
Our sexual response is the result of millions of years of evolution. We get horny as hell in high school, because WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GET HORNY AS HELL IN HIGH SCHOOL.
