Animal’s Daily Recreational Use News

Before I get into this uplifting story, check out the latest chapter of Barrett’s Privateers – Unrepentant Sinner over at Glibertarians.

Now then: If you’re using Viagra for “recreational purposes” (why else would you be using it?) you may want to re-think that.

It’s a big problem — and it’s growing even bigger.

Social media users are being bombarded with advertisements for easy access to erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra and Cialis, along with affordable generics — and men hoping to improve their sexual performance are taking their chances.

That’s a hard no, Cleveland Clinic urologist Raevti Bole, MD warns.

Just because these medications are easier than ever to access doesn’t mean you should fall for the hype.

Recreational use of the drugs can carry significant risks, the pro warns.

Here’s why.

Recreational use, one would presume, is the use of Viagra and Cialis by men who do not suffer from erectile dysfunction (as opposed to electile dysfunction, last observed in November of 2020) and who are, instead, using it as a boost to something that’s already working – sort of a sexual turbocharger.

Viagra, Cialis and their generic equivalents are what are known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors.

They open up your blood vessels and can be used in a variety of ways, including the treatment of pulmonary hypertension, or urinary problems.

These days, they’re most famous for being so-called magic cures for erectile dysfunction, or ED. Popping a pill leads to increased blood flow, which means better erections that last longer.

I can vouch for this; Mrs. Animal, who has a chronic cardiac condition, takes a very low dose of sildenafil, which is Viagra’s generic name, as a vaso-dllator that allows her heart to work more efficiently.

In general, it’s not a good idea to take any prescription drug when it’s not needed, no matter how much one might want to impress a new gal with one’s prowess in the sheets.  However if someone insists on that boost, I do happen to know that Viagra, in Mexico, is an over-the-counter drug.
