minute men

So today I had this story on page 10, right next to a story about a 6-foot-3 transsexual cop in Oklahoma City. From my story:

BY DEREK ROSE

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

It may not have been romantic, but they did it for science.

A group of 166 men suffering from premature ejaculation repeatedly had sex with women who were timing them with stopwatches.

Those taking an experimental new drug showed a newfound stamina: three minutes up from one.

And hey, guys, don't laugh. That's more than most of you, sexperts say.

"In the movies, everyone lasts for about 20 minutes. In real life it's about 2-1/2 minutes," said Dr. Mark Stein, a urologist at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Manhattan.


As you can imagine, story prompted much discussion in the NYDN newsroom. I wanted the lede (the first paragraph of the story) to be, "Coming soon a treatment for premature ejaculation?" but that was vetoed by an editor.

I also mulled over, "Timed with stopwatches and primed with pharmaceuticals, the premature ejaculators soon showed a newfound stamina," but that is not really DN style. Co-worker T.C. suggested, "Ready, set stop!"

And of course the 2-1/2 minute claim also prompted some discussion.

He should have used "coming soon - etc." as a headline and won you an award. It's sufficiently double entendric enough to pass muster. He needs to let it go.
