Little Blue Pill

Monday, June 8, 2009
No, I don't use Viagra.

It's not that I have anything against it. For men who are actually suffering from Erectile Dysfunction (ED), it's a useful way to remain virile and able to satisfy their sex partners. For me, however, it's simply not useful. I'm in my early 20s, and can both get and maintain an erection just fine.

I know there's a lot of bunk out there about male sex-workers (gigolos, porn stars, etc.) using Viagra on an almost-regular basis, but I don't think that's really the case. OK, maybe porn stars do, seeing how they're fucking on film and not for an individual client. Do any of the women I see really want an erection that lasts up to four hours? Don't think so.

I've asked Adam the same question -- whether or not he uses the blue pill to stay hard. Like me, he said no. Most of the time the women we're with are satisfied with a one-hour fuck, not the marathon-length encounters porn stars must endure to get the perfect shot.

And while I'm sure that Viagra is perfectly safe, all drugs are known to have side effects. Would a man who uses Viagra recreationally in his early 20s be subject to some unexpected consequences down the road? Maybe, maybe not. I don't intend on finding out, either. I've looked in my father's medicine cabinet plenty of times, and have never seen Viagra in there next to the Listerine and dental floss.

The same can't be said for other medicine cabinets, or visiting relatives who hijacked my bathroom back home upon arrival. Fortunately, if one's father doesn't suffer from ED, it's unlikely the son will, either.

So while I'm sure Viagra would love an endorsement from a man who has sex professionally, they'll have to look elsewhere than this blog. And quite frankly, I hope I'm never in the position to endorse their product at all!
