According to this urology site, "Viagra does not cause erections without sexual stimulation."

Apparently, both you and I were wrong. According to the answers here, the desire is there whether or not an erection can be achieved. If that's true, it must be really frustating. I'm hanging onto the hope that it's only true to some, to most, but not to all.

Damn, you people are impossible sometimes

No, most users don't have coronary disease. In fact, nitroglycerine use is a contraindication for viagra.

Viagra exaggerates or enables an erection only under arousing circumstances. You do not take it and walk around polevaulting all day. Unless, that is, you find your mother-in-law just a bit attractive.

For those lucky few who get a prolonged (4 hours) erection, they lose their sense of humor in a big hurry. It can require surgery. Called Priapism, it also occurs in sickle cell disease and a few other conditions. If you let it grow go, you can get gangrene.

What happened to the good old days where we talked about annuities and whether to pay off your mortgage?

Annuities end when one dies, right? Looks like this issue will last just as long too.

a 4-hour annuity ? Is that some exotic sex thing ? Or does the money just last long enough for a good romp ?

by this logic, acne medication, sleeping pills, and pain killers should not be covered either since they are typically not life-threatening.

this is just a clear-cut situation where you want your personal values to drive insurance policy

Acne= infection, not being able to sleep= yes you can die from that, pain killers quite frankly doctors do not treat pain correctly pain does also kill.

Viagra, please not even close.

i'm going to question that no desire thang.

i was on sexual overdrive for most of my life. only in the last maybe 4 years have i been, um, coming to grips with a lack of desire. i no longer have to have it 5 times (on a slow day) each day 7 days a week and i couldn't be more, um, relieved.

sometimes i shutter to think what i might have accomplished in life had i been able to actually concentrate on anything other than sex. but at least i've had a very fun life.

the thought of needing viagra when not as a fix for a physical condition--& i've been to parties where it was handed out like, um, cocktails--is just freaky to me. i could not be happier than to no longer be on sexual overdrive. i have never known sexual desire to occur without an erection which proved rather embarrassing a few times in my youth.

i think we often misinterpret our feelings. i think the desire for love, for companionship, for a hug, maybe even for something as so-called spiritual does not always require viagra so that the desire is turned into a desire satisfied only by sex. especially where there is no physical impairment, perhaps diminishing sexual desire does not necessarily indicate any malfuction at all. maybe it's just natural.

i'm not upset that i no longer have the growing pains i had as a child, the acne i had as a teenager, nor the erection i had in my 20s. and i still probably have more sex than anyone taking viagra.

But of course there is stimulation, and then there is stimulation. A guy told me that he took it and went to a bar. Every time he danced there was Mr.Jack.

The girls got a real giggle out of it.

"Giggle" was probably not the reaction that would have made him feel he got his prescription's worth...
