A bite from the banana spider results in hours-long erections.
The Brazilian wandering spiders or Phoneutria are also known as banana spiders as they can often be found in banana plants.
Their venom contains a toxin, Tx2–6, which causes symptoms of priapism in male victims and can induce erectile dysfunction because of penis thrombus.
These spiders are considered dangerous for humans as they also produce a potent neurotoxin (several cases of death have been reported) but their venom properties could offer new ways of treatment of erectile dysfunction.
