Untitled[edit]

The article takes a very pro-alternate medicine stance. Phrases such as "The deer penis is typically very large and for it to retain its properties it must be extracted from the deer whilst still alive." presume that its use as an aphrodesiac is definitely real. Without scientific studies that can be pointed to, the article should take a more conservative approach, per WP:FRINGE. Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:44, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Um, since when has TCM been about scientific studies? Duh. Dr. Blofeld White cat 15:37, 1 July 2010 (UTC)


this whole article is fucking disgusting.


Also - why is it being sliced 'typically by women' relevant to anything? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 164.143.240.34 (talk) 15:22, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Live extraction[edit]

This article states that the deer penis "must be extracted from the deer while still alive." However, the reference for this claim was a book that strictly referred to Angang, Taiwan back in 1995. I am not sure if this is the case for TCM in general, or just very localized beliefs. This was also prior to the passing of the Taiwanese Animal Protection Act in 1998, so there is nothing suggesting whether this actually continues to this day or not.Sega31098 (talk) 05:32, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
