Hard-rocking Tokio Hotel guitarist in sex party Viagra overdose

The 20-year-old guitarist and twin brother of the band’s flamboyant frontman Bill told daily Bild on Friday that he bought the black-market impotency pills from a street vendor.

“I asked the seller: ‘Do I look like somebody who can’t hoist his flag any more?’ He said ‘no’ but said I should try them anyway,” he told the paper. “So I swallowed one.”

He then returned to his hotel with a couple of girls to party and proceeded to take a few more of the pills he had purchased.

“Probably too many,” Kaulitz said. “The next morning my head was aching and my vision was blurred.”

Bild reported the illicit pills also kept his manhood standing at attention for the next two days.

“It was still working for the next 48 hours, unfortunately also in situations where it wasn’t really appropriate,” he said. “The 60-year-old masseuse that I visited the next day was slightly confused.”

Story continues below…

Tom’s brother Bill said he had little sympathy for the potentially dangerous overdose of Viagra.

“Why is he swallowing crap like that? He’s constantly horny anyway,” Bill told the paper. “I nearly called a doctor. But then I decided to let him suffer. It was Tom’s fault in the end.”

Real rock stars did it all without hardon-pills.

Just read the books of Jenny Fabian or Pamela Des Barres, they know first-hand.

I wonder if he'll ever have a hard-on again after the overdose

Two days?!! Wow. The pills certainly worked. But why the hell did he take a bunch of them? Why didn't he wait to see if one would work?

How can I get these pills here in the U.S. This is just what the Obama Administation needs to keep their little minds occupied from passing more stupid legislation !

I worked with a guy who got up in the night and thought he was popping some vitamins...and took three Viagras. The effect did last for about six hours.

I'm calling his bluff.

1) 2 days is probably stretching the truth. He probably took the pills before satisfying his yellow-groupie-fever and woke up the next morning with an erection that lasted until maybe lunch time. The intelligent people at "Bild dir deine Meinung" probably interpret that as 2 days.

2) Tokio Hotel's popularity and album sales have been tanking of late. Just another PR stunt. He's also got no one to really prove it besides his brother.

One swift strike with a five pound hammer would have solved his dilema!

last comment denied probably due to the name of the drug starting with "V"....hmm ok lets try this:

one must usually consume impotency drugs to counter the other drugs one might take.
