One rabbi says that Jewish law forbids the ingestion of Viagra on Shabbat, lest one violate the infraction of erecting a structure on the Sabbath.

But another rabbi says that as a medication which adds pleasure to the Sabbath (not to mention the rest of the week), it is permissible. However, taking Viagra is taboo during Passover - as well as any other agent that causes things to rise.

Which raises (you'll excuse the expression) yet another question: What blessing does an observant Jew say before taking the Viagra pill?

There is a choice of three blessings:

1. Boruch Atah HaShem zokeif kfuffim -- Bless you Lord for straightening those who are bent.

2. Boruch Atah HaShem yaaleh vyavo -- Bless you Lord for causing things to arise and come.

3. Boruch Atah HaShem mechayei hameitim -- Bless you Lord for raising the dead.

Amen
