Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Rey Curtis investigate the death of Gilbert Sanderson who collapsed in the restaurant next to his townhouse. The medical examiner confirms that he died of a heart attack but also found 1000 mg of Viagra in his system. The man had a heart condition and had been warned by his doctors not to take Viagra. The detectives suspect someone may have slipped it to him. On the night he died, he had attended a fund-raising dinner hosted by Julian Spector and organized by Katrina Ludlow. After some sparring, Ludlow admits she was with Sanderson before he died but that he was fine when she left. She also tell the police she has evidence against Julian Spector. She's put into protective custody with Curtis as her babysitter but it may all backfire at the trial.
Did You Know?
Mrs. Sanderson describes Viagra as an aphrodisiac, which is a common misconception. An aphrodisiac is a substance that enhances a person's libido or sex drive. Sildenaphil (Viagra) does not increase libido, therefore it would not be classified as an aphrodisiac, it is classified as a vasodilator. Vasodilators increase blood flow to certain areas of the body by increasing the size of blood vessels, which is how sildenaphil treats erectile dysfunction (ED). It's a myth that it can enhance a sexual experience for men even if they don't have ED, if a man is capable of getting a normal erection on his own, taking sildenaphil will have absolutely no clinical effect.
