Did Vikings Need Viagra? (PG-13)

A new study shows that Viking men had the same performance concerns as their modern brothers.

In Size Matters: Penile Problems in Sagas of Icelanders, a study for Cardiff University, Dr Carl Phelpstead writes that medieval Icelanders were concerned about the size of their manhood. The paper is based on the Sagas, a collection of Viking stories that contained such gems as women laughing when they see a Viking naked.

"These narratives reveal a relationship between the male genitals and men's identity that is both familiar and alien to us," said Phelpstead.
