Along with all the positive things that erectile-dysfunction drugs have done for

Along with all the positive things that erectile-dysfunction drugs have done for the sex lives of the formerly flaccid, they’ve also encouraged old horn dogs to try new tricks. Witness 87-year-old Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone’s recent leg-humping embarrassments. The mottle-faced kajillionaire is all over the news lately for offering one completely unqualified love interest a job when his company was in the midst of a hiring freeze (I’m sure she was popular with her coworkers.) and gifting her with a bunch of company stock. He also insisted MTV greenlight a reality show about a group called the Electric Barbarellas because they feature some trick of his named Heather Naylor. Redstone got so pissy when a reporter dared to diss this reportedly terrible show, that he called the journalist and left a creepy voicemail, trying to discover who’d leaked the info.
