Ha

It was supposed to go off patent several years ago, and somehow they got it extended through 2020. I remember the explanation sounding fishy to me. I also remember when it came out, it was advertised for less than $10 a pill. I hope it goes off patent before I will ever need it. I talked my friend into a free sample a while back. Wow, it's got some pop to it. Unless you absolutely need it, I think it should be left to the 20 something's who have the desire to roll in the sheets all night long. I need my sleep!

I think we should have contest to promote the Villages by coming up with a catchy Ad phrase, something along the lines of:

Come to the Florida Villages, where Chlamydia spreads faster than dysentery through a cruise liner. Virginia maybe for Lovers but Florida is for Fornicators.

Sorry, couldn't help myself and good for all those in the Villages that are still sexually active.

I just watched one of those Cops shows and they arrested a guy in AZ for selling black market Viagra. He was young, but was selling it to old dudes in Yuma. Must be a large retirement community down there. The Cops were saying that lots of the Viagra was coming in from China and after testing was found to have a lot of heavy metals in it.

Better to go to CVS and pay the $30.

I would think that is a good thing and they should market it under the name "STEEL ROD" instead of the wimpy Viagra.

Viagra came off patent in Europe in 2013. Maybe the black market is in generic sildenafil coming from Europe.

Generics swoop as Viagra patent expires

I would venture to guess most single females are there by virtue of a spouse passing on and quite frankly they don't want to leave what they know and are comfortable with the surroundings. Maybe not looking so much for a partner but just someone to do activities with.

Come to in The Villages, where there's more than one way to play a few holes.

Actually, their real slogan is accurate. I just didn't get it all these years, until now.

The Villages. Florida's Friendliest Retirement Hometown!

Could it be the wives don't want their husbands to have an excess supply of it so they monitor the prescription.

Well that could very well be the problem. If I was single and living there, I may be tempted to throw away the clubs and take advantage of the opportunity provided by others busy playing golf all day.

Generic viagra has been about $1 a pill in Southeast Asia for a long time. And now that the patent has expired outside of the USA it is sold legitimately over the counter for about that price.

I have a Canadian friend who lives half-time in Southeast Asia and he pays his Canadian handyman with generic Viagra.
