Common Myths and All Truth about Viagra

Fifteen years ago, in the spring of 1998, US Food and Drug Administration approved a new medicament for treating male erectile dysfunction – Viagra. Ever since these pale blue pills have always been surrounded by all kinds of fictions and speculations. Let’s get acquainted with the most common myths and reveal them at last.

Viagra is not Always Effective

The first and main myth about Viagra: it is only necessary to take the «magic blue pill» and all the problems with erection will disappear. Moreover, the very part of the body, which performance majority of men are most concerned about, will become as hard as a rock – this is how it was described in one of the advertising articles about this drug. In fact, the generic prototype does not give an absolute effectiveness guarantee. And it helps to get rid not of all types of erectile dysfunction. Yes, in 80% of cases the preparation helps. Yet not in 100%. There are some diseases (e. g., penis cavernous body fibrosis), for treatment of which Viagra is useless, and at the presence of pathological venous drainage Viagra works, but with low efficiency.

Sex – here and now!

Another very common myth: if to take a magic pill, a man immediately needs a woman. Otherwise, he’ll have to repeat the fallen path of a famous biblical character, repeatedly convicted for «spilling his seed on the ground». This myth owes its popularity to another idea: sex is a purely physiological process and nothing more. But sex is something more than just physiological habit, such as going to water-closet. Sex is physiology, as well as psychology and even mental effort. Intelligence is involved in the sexual process not less than the body. However, taking Viagra, without sexual intercourse perspective, is not recommended because it causes increased blood flow to penis cavernous body. You should agree, that even without thinking about sex, it is quite uncomfortable to show yourself in public like this.

Viagra doesn’t Affect Sexual Excitement

A wonderful myth connected with preceding one, claims that sildenafil increases sexual desire. Men will be disappointed: nothing like that happens. Sexual attraction is not just increased blood flow … and so on. Viagra is not an aphrodisiac, it only helps to keep «excitement» at the necessary level. The most charming myth applies to women. But in fact, its action is based on increasing blood flow to penis cavernous body. At the same time, women have neither cavernous bodies, nor penis itself. Therefore Viagra causes no effect to them. Viagra also does not help increase charm and attractiveness or childbirth (you can take a whole package at once, but no even slightest impact on quality, amount and activity of sperm cells will appear).

There are Also Negative Issues

But Viagra has an unexpected side effect – increased number of divorces (especially among elderly people) and percentage of STD and AIDS cases among people of old age. But here is the more psychological cause. Men have lost their sexual inspiration long ago for age reasons, after getting magic pills at their disposal start to search for «adventure». Their wives are not so interesting to them anymore – because of age, and such searches end up in bed with women younger and prettier, which sometimes fraught with sad consequences. But no matter how much generic Viagra is praised or scolded, people took, take, and will still take it. And that is not surprising: after all, it is about the basic human need for genus and species survival. And sex is one of the ways to realize this need, has proven its effectiveness.
