Viagra Falls

|

Has Viagra, the only fully recreational drug the Food and Drug Administration has signed off on since it brought back saccharine years ago, created a world of Bartlebys who "would prefer not to"?

That's one of the claims in this Independent story, which details how some men "have decided to stop taking Viagra because it has increased their partner's expectations of them between the sheets."

This is an interesting story if only for what it tells us about all drugs, legal/illegal, prescription/over the counter, etc: They never quite work the way you expect them to. (Indeed, the story notes how the uplifting quality of Viagra's active ingredient was discovered by accident.)

  1. sorcerer’s apprentice syndrome?

    to contemplate an age where heightened sexual interplay is feared is terribly unpleasant.

  2. i think the thrust (no pun intended, har har) was that with their dick problems solved they suddenly had lost their scapegoat and had to face their lives. which is probably a terribly unpleasant prospect for a lot of folk.

  3. Imagine that – for some people it seems it’s not all their penis’ fault.

    Poor penis – it always get’s blamed for everything.

    Won’t someone, please, think of the peni?

    …hehehehe
