Scots are hardmen of Britain; Lovers north of the Border are least likely in UK to take Viagra.

Byline: STIAN ALEXANDER

SCOTS men are the hardest in Britain - in the bedroom.

A UK-wide study found they are the least likely in Britain to take Viagra or erectile dysfunction (ED) medication.

The survey of 1000 men discovered just 11 per cent of Scots men had taken Viagra to help them stand to attention in the bedroom.

In England, 15 per cent of those polled admitted taking erectile dysfunction medication in the past.

The YouGov study, for online pharmacy treated.com, also found that 36 per cent of Scots who admitted taking ED medication would tell their partner they were taking it, with 64 per cent keeping it secret from their other half.

But men in England were more likely to tell their partner, with 49 per cent saying they'd reveal all.

The data showed men aged 55 and over were most likely to have taken Viagra or an ED drug, with 22 per cent admitted taking it.

Just five per cent of those aged between 18 and 24 had taken the drug, compared to 10 per cent of men aged 25 to 34.

Dr Daniel Atkinson, of treated.com, said: "Compared to other parts of the UK, the percentage of men in Scotland who said they had used treatment for ED is lower.

"We can't know for certain why this is but one observation could be that Scotland has much more rural, sparsely populated land between cities.

"This could suggest that ED is a bigger problem in more built up or urban areas, due to factors like stress being more common.

"Or, it could just be down to logistical factors - seeing a GP or going to a pharmacy when you live in a more remote area might be more difficult."

He added: "When you look at the percentage of men in Scotland who said that they would tell a partner they were using treatment, which was lower than the rest of the UK, it could be indicative of something else.

"Could it be that men in Scotland have more traditional attitudes towards erectile dysfunction, preferring to keep the problem to themselves?"
