We work pretty much the same. The shape's different but the biology is the same.
It causes blood to flow to sexual areas. Some gals like it a lot. If you try it, try a half a pill the first time.

PS,
I have never used it, I just read a lot.

Edit,
I just remembered, the first time I heard of that was a Sex and the City episode where Samantha practically gets addicted to it.

Seriously, I recommend it for that even if you don't "need" the help.
I agree with Doug G and Velo Dog. To keep this on topic we need a cycling analogy: You may still be able to climb that hill, but it is much more fun to power up it like 20 years ago.

The people who voted never: some are women, some use Cialis, some are barely 50, some are probably less than truthful, and the rest are like Louis.

So, ummmm, I have a question. Does Viagra/other drugs like it only help with the equipment? Is it like getting a great new road bike to impress your friends, but not really caring one way or the other about the ride?

Or is it like getting that great new road bike and enjoying the h*ll out of the ride? And what happens if each of the couple takes some? (We need a tandem smiley!)

Hey, we're 50+! We don't care about stuff like this anymore!

It's like getting a CUSTOM FIT road bike EXACTLY like you have ALWAYS wanted and the ride turns out to be FAR superior and smoother than anything you imagined......and you could care less what the h..l anyone else thinks.

Was that answer oblique enough to not get censored??

I mostly agree execept that, I would have used a colon (i.e., "real thing [:] powerful gasoline, a clean windshield and a shoeshine ..."), and substitute "Mercedes Benz" for "powerful gasoline" because a Luxus, for example, probably doen't actually need "powerful gasoline" to fulfill its spec.

I quoted from the original source. Sometimes you've got to put on your wide belt and work shirt and tell it like it was.

Rumor is some 2008 Miyata Viagras will come on some legs at the next TdF: it's recommended to standup riders for hamering from the rear.

Perhaps an opportune moment to note that it's Organ Leroy at his organ again...and Porgie Tirebiter is helping Porcelain with the dishes.

A woman went to her pharmacist about problems her husband was having. He recomended Viagra. "Can you get it over the counter?" she asked. "I can if I take two." he replied...

Or maybe only 2 respondents were 100% honest and 18% were pretty honest

Truth be told, we are blessed with at least having access to "medicine" that can help in this area.
The entire subject was taboo not many years ago, and many, many men (together with their wives) suffered in silence.

For those guys who need ED pills, and have "success" as a result, I'm happy for them and do not judge them in terms of their fitness or masculinity.

Best regards
