"Seminal weakness" indeed!

Right after the list of symptoms (Do you suffer from any of the following?...), the French advert says "If so, you need a natural cure. NO DRUGS. You have broken the laws of Nature, and it is to Nature that you must turn to be cured." Nothing more natural than electrocuting your wedding tackle, no Siree!

These don't work. I use magnets and crystals. 😜

There is something VERY disturbing about that electric fishing line...it might discourage the tuna from checking out the bait.

There is (was?) a Museum Of Questionable Medical Devices located in Minneapolis, MN. I don't remember this particular item on display but there were a good number of devices for treating your nether regions. Most of them made use of that wonder of the new age, electricity.

The most dubious was a device inserted into the, er, anus which would then warm up when current was applied.

I'm afraid the only halfway effective treatment for the "weakness" such advertisements referred to was, in those days, mercury.

Is that one of those old styled toilet brushes dangling from the belt shown in the 2ed ad?

@KDP: That device would be good for those who think they're hot sh1t!

I visited the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices in Minneapolis a couple of times. It was a real hoot! It was also sort of scary. The museum is now closed. The devices were donated to (I think) the Minnesota Science Museum where I saw some on display a few years ago.

Gotta get me one of those, and use it with the snail cream.

I am shocked by such an electrifying idea!

I'll bet General Jack Ripper (Dr. Strangelove) was an avid user of some of these products...
