Sex and the Seawolf: Viagra and your penis

Illustration by Vicente Capala

Sildenafil, commonly known by the brand name Viagra, is a drug used to give males an extra boost for happy hour (or longer, if you are a wild child).

Viagra is used commonly to treat erectile dysfunction in males. It is also used to help those who can achieve an erection keep that erection. As we all know, no appendage’s stamina is the same.

There are many questions commonly asked about this penile pill’s power. But first, let’s begin with how it works.

Viagra is a drug that allows more blood to flow inside the penis. One must be sexually aroused for the drug to work at all, however — so no worries on accidentally swallowing a pill during family dinnertime, unless of course “family dinnertime” is just you and the lover. If so, you should then consider calling family dinnertime by another name.

Make sure you don’t eat at least 2 hours prior to taking Viagra, or else it won’t work properly. If you eat something before the pill, your body becomes confused about what it’s absorbing. You also don’t want to smell like onions or grease before making love, so that should be another reason to not eat beforehand.

After taking it, the pill should work within a half hour. It can safely last up to four hours after that.

Make sure you use those four hours wisely, because you do not want to waste the opportunity of prolonged erections by climaxing earlier than your partner. In other words, please him or her before yourself.

For those of you who like to have intercourse multiple times throughout the day, you might want to consider finding other means for your erection to last longer. The recommended dosage for Viagra is once a day, but of course it is different for each person.

One myth about Viagra should be addressed. It involves a man who took several pills, thinking Viagra didn’t work. Once he was aroused he had too much blood flowing into his penis, so his heart went out. Though this myth has not been confirmed either true or false, please follow the recommended dosage, even if it’s for the sole reason that awkward situations arise when you can’t get rid of your erection.
