The National Press Club – sex and prostate cancer

It wasn’t easy persuading the National Press Club to let Bettina talk about erections.  So the title of her book, What Men Want, was used as the topic of her talk to the club in September, 2010. But the somewhat surprised media ended up hearing about something rather different. Namely:
