American comedian Michael Blackson has urged everyone who is offered the vaccine against coronavirus to take it – as he reveals he was left with a "limp d**k" by the deadly virus.
The 48-year-old father-of-four says the worst part of being struck down with the virus was that it left him unable to get an erection and completely devoid of a sex drive.
Michael, who has starred in the big screen comedy Nobody’s Fool and will be seen in upcoming Eddie Murphy film Coming 2 America, suffered a variety of symptoms after contracting the virus.
And he is now a vocal advocate of vaccinations and says he doesn’t want anyone else to experience what he went through.
He told TMZ: “Trust me, if you get a chance of catching Covid, take the vaccination. Trust me! Take the f**king vaccination.”
Going on to explain what symptoms he had, Michael revealed he endured one of the less publicised symptoms – erectile dysfunction.
He said: “(I experience) everything man. S**ting on myself, you know, can’t taste nothing, no desire to have sex! That was the worst part.”

He said: “One of the symptoms is you get a limp d**k.”
He went on to declare he would gladly take the vaccine on TV in an effort to encourage others to take the jab when it is available to them.
He said: “After catching Covid, yes. I will definitely recommend a… I don’t wanna see nobody catch Covid.
“I would do it, only because I was affected by it and I know the feeling of having it and what a horrible two weeks it is (once you catch it).”
Last month, reports confirmed that Covid-19 can cause erectile dysfunction.
Founder of MedExpert Consulting, Dena Grayson, MD, PhD told NBCLX: “We now know that people can have long term health effects from this virus, neurologic complications, and now, for men who are watching this — there is some real concern here that men could have long term issues of erectile dysfunction from this virus, because we know that it causes issues in the vasculature.”
Her warning followed a report in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation published in July that warned erectile dysfunction was a possible side effect of Covid.
The report stated: "COVID-19 survivors might develop sexual and reproductive health issues. Andrological assessment and tailored treatments should be considered in the follow-up."
