Truvada isn’t the only little blue pill making waves with the gays these days. Viagra is back with a vengeance and looking to be consumed by millions of men around the globe. For such a popular “helping hand” used by so many, not many know the science behind Viagra, what it’s made of, and that Viagra is not (literally) for the faint of heart. If you’re frustrated because you can’t get hard, embarrassed by impotence, or you’re just intimidated and need to take a blue pill to get you hard, there is what you need to know:

First, there shouldn’t be any shame in your game if you have ever felt like you needed a Viagra. It’s not uncommon to have a moment where something is a total boner killer and won’t let you perform the way you want to. Many gay men, especially at circuit parties, take Viagra to keep hard, because taking drugs can make you stay soft. Whatever is keeping you from standing at attention should depend on your course of action.

Second, some men really do need to take the small blue pill to have a healthy sex life. Erectile dysfunction is a decrease in the blood flow to our penises, and can happen at any time of our lives, even to those of us men who do not suffer from long-term impotence.

Third, Viagra is the medicinal name for the drug within it, sildenafil. Sildenafil increases blood flow to particular areas of the body and relaxes blood vessel wall muscles. Used when needed, it can be taken before sex to increase the changes of obtaining and sustaining an erection during intercourse.

Fourth, Viagra does have its side effects and shouldn’t be treated so recreationally. Most importantly, it is important to know is that Viagra mixed with poppers can kill you, because combined, they drop your heart rate. Avoid using poppers at all while taking Viagra; it can cause heart, kidney and liver issues, including decrease in heart pressure.

Fifth, you can easily obtain a prescription through a doctor’s consultation and recommendation. There is a generic version, Cialis, and is commonly used among gay men. Ask your doctor if either is right for you. Both are often covered by insurance companies with copays and write off available.

Viagra is not for everyone. But for some, it has been a godsend, helping sustain healthy sex lives and men avoid the embarrassment of not being able to get it up. Ask your doctor if the other blue pill is right for you!
