Viagra – Getting the Hard Facts

By August 6, 2013 March 21st, 2017 Erectile Dysfunction

Few medications that have hit the market in recent years have been as polarizing or caused as much of a stir as Viagra. The infamous “little blue pill” is said to effectively cure Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and give a man back his sexuality, his ability to perform in bed and ultimately, his masculinity. Many men who suffer from ED claim that the inability to achieve and maintain an erection calls into question the very essence of their manhood and have found Viagra to be something of a miracle drug. (And yes, there are a lot of satisfied women out there who would agree with this sentiment)!

For all the hype surrounding Viagra, there’s still a great deal of mystery and more than a few myths regarding how it actually works. You’ve made the decision to take your sexuality into your own hands and you’ve taken the plunge to pop the magic pill—but what does that mean exactly? What happens next?

In the most elementary terms, ED is a condition where blood flow to a man’s penis (feel free to substitute your own favorite term for this organ—anatomically correct or not) is impeded in some way. Common culprits are high blood pressure, diabetes, stress and other health issues that, on their surface, should seemingly not impact sexual performance. Whatever the root cause of the ED, Viagra works quite simply by increasing blood flow to normal, healthy levels again.

Most men will experience a “surge” within half an hour of taking the pill, and will reap the benefits for up to four hours. (Yes, we’ve heard the worn out line about calling everyone you know if you have an erection lasting longer than four hours and no, this is not likely to happen). Despite rumors to the contrary, Viagra does not instantaneously incite a rise out of most men; the effects are only felt when sexually aroused and will dissipate after orgasm unless additional stimulation in introduced. You can take Viagra with or without food, but it goes without saying that men enjoy a much richer experience if they avoid heavy, high-fat meals prior to sex, because Viagra is absorbed into the body much more fully. Come to think of it, avoiding high calorie meals before engaging in adult activities is a good rule of thumb in general!

Viagra – Getting the Hard Facts

Ideally, Viagra should be taken approximately one hour before engaging in sexual activity, but for those romantics out there who prefer a more spontaneous, unplanned roll in the hay, the four-hour window of effectiveness does allow for some flexibility. It is important to note that Viagra may not be effective the first time it’s taken; many men need as many as three of four doses before they begin to reap the benefits. (By the way, before you get any grandiose ideas, a normal dose is one pill per day; we don’t need anyone overdosing out there!) Before you let the idea that even Viagra may not be immediately effective wound your proud male ego, guys, just know that there’s nothing abnormal about this. Every man’s body just absorbs and reacts to new drugs differently.

Lastly, one of the most common questions men have about Viagra is whether it will enhance their sexual performance in other ways. Will they last longer in bed, or be able to achieve more orgasms than they would otherwise? Will Viagra increase the size of their erection? While results vary from dude to dude, the short answer is that Viagra is not an effective orgasm enhancer in terms of intensity or number of orgasms experienced, nor will it in any way impact the size of one’s organ. However, due to the nature of the drug, one happy incidental side effect for some men is pro-longed stamina. Because the drug increases blood flow to the penis, erections are often harder than could ever be achieved independently, and thus orgasms more elusive. Some men find this frustrating, while others see it as an added bonus to the pill.

If you or your partner suffers from ED, we highly encourage you to consider Viagra. Thanks to modern technology and the overwhelming success of this particular drug, it has become wildly popular and readily available in mainstream, yet very discreet markets for those who prefer not to broadcast their sexual requisites to the public. Viagra can be easily acquired through online prescription providers such as loxdoc. You can research the drug, receive a prescription form a physician, and place an order, all from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Trust us; your buddies will never have to know.
