ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A medical reporter at the Atlanta Journal & Constitution says it’s time for the media to grow up when it comes to stories about the male sexual organ.

Reporter Diane Lore says many newspaper and magazine editors need to get over their fears about using the word “penis” or printing realistic diagrams of the male organ which are needed to educate readers about male health problems.

Lore says the hullabaloo over Viagra and the increased interest in prostate cancer demands that medical reporters stop mincing words and censoring pictures when talking about the penis.

Most publications reporting on Viagra tried to explain how the drug works by using bizarre representations for the penis including arrows, lightning bolts or even a happy face.

Lore says that only leads to confusion because men need to see a realistic drawing of the penis to really understand how Viagra works.

In her words, “...the more honest newspapers get, the better we get.”
