"Men urinate like boys"

Yet another out-of-town report on Mayo, this one from the Toronto Free Press with the catchy headline, "Operation Helps Men Urinate Like Teenagers":

What should men and their wives know about the New Gold Standard? No, not the one associated with the London England Gold Market.

A report from The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is good news for hundreds of thousands of males who every year require surgery for this condition. And who worry that it may affect their sexual health.
