Viagra: ten years old today

Roger Freely, Confidential sex correspondent, and Sleuth, our Friday satirist, on how Viagra changed everything

Published on March 25th 2008.


Viagra: ten years old today

Ten years ago Viagra, the erectile dysfunction drug, was first approved for use by the US Food and Drug Administration. Confidential contacted a prominent medical authority to find out what the main effect has been of the drug which is manufactured by Pfizer Laboratories.

The main effects have been felt in inboxes - particularly those associated with bulk or junk mail. These have tended to fill up and swell leaving them engorged with unwanted and embarrassing advertisements.

Dr Richard Cox, a freelance Mancunian doctor, told us: “Aside from helping couples affected by male impotence the main effects have been felt in inboxes - particularly those associated with bulk or junk mail. These have tended to fill up and swell leaving them engorged with unwanted and embarrassing advertisements. Of course those adverts have themselves come under very stiff pressure from other drugs such as Cialis.”

He continued: “In some extreme cases all these types of harder, firmer, long lasting ads have caused acute distress as they have contained graphic images which some more sensitive souls or those with firm (but not like that) religious beliefs have found unacceptable."

Most shaming of all, claims Cox, have been the situations: "when patients have been looking up, say, a holiday they booked online, and the rest of the family has been gathered round the computer. Countless people have found themselves jointly reading with granny or the kids, email titles such as ‘do you want to really satisfy your fuckbuddy?’ These have led to difficult and probing questions.”

Fortunately Confidential can report that there has been a definite decline in the length, girth and frequency of these emails.

Dr Cox again: “The ads for Viagra have been drooping of late. These days inboxes are just as likely to find their defences penetrated by troublesome penis enlargement advertisements. None of which, in my experience, work.”

My grandad takes em daily but he breaks them up into fours. It's nothing to do with sex, he's just over 80 and wants it to stick out far enough so he don't piss on his shoes.

roger freely. doctor dick cox. Even your advertorials are better than lame-arse viz with a lobotomy. Can you not decorate the page with tumbleweed?

You po-faced buggers that was a funny piece. I'm sick of those bloody emails about viagra and penis enlargments. Please keep this sort of thing up?

It's a very serious subject, so much so I can't help laughing.

I was reading this in the Yahoo news. 'In one test, men would be observed while sleeping to see if erections occurred. Men who failed to get the usual five to six erections per night were deemed to have a physical problem, and those who did get nocturnal erections were said to have a psychological problem and were sent to see a sex counsellor.' Does this mean you just can't win?

Following on from these posts viagra is a serious subject and should not be made light of in this way.

Did you know Viagra was originally made to treat low blood pressure and angina? That's fact, not a lot of people know that. I had some once (not to treat low blood pressure or angina) quite a night that was.

agree with Gav - embarrassngly awful. I had to check it weren't April first. Sleuth's a cock, not a satirist, I'd surmise

Why are men so obsessed with their cocks?
