Millions of men around the world are affected erectile dysfunction which is a well-known condition. Due to the nature of the condition, its main treatment – Viagra – has become one of the most popular drugs in the world. Many people do not understand how Viagra works, and want to use it as a sex enhancer even if they are not having sexual difficulties. This is especially true for teenagers.
Many people see Viagra as an aphrodisiac that will give you the power to have amazing, non-stop sex following the myths that have been floating around about Viagra online for years.
There is, however, simply no truth in this. Viagra does nothing for your desire to have sex, and will not give you automatic erections. You must be aroused for Viagra to work. Secondly, Viagra only works for 4 hours, and you can only take it once per day. This means you will not have sex all day and all night, even if you are aroused. If you already get adequate erections, Viagra will not do much to improve your sex life.
Teenagers, believing these Viagra myths, have been using Viagra recreationally for years. These teens are looking to increase their sexual performance and impress their girlfriends and friends. Many see sexual performance as a characteristic of “manliness”, and therefore use Viagra as a way to be the “top man” in school. Many teens use Viagra privately or inside their relationships, but others use it at parties or clubs.
Most people think of Viagra and erectile dysfunction as an “older man’s problem”, and no one really saw the craze among young people coming. Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, and does affect some teenagers. However, even if a teen has a legitimate reason for needing Viagra, it is not a good idea for men under 18. The FDA has only approved Viagra in men over the age of 18, and harmful effects could occur to your health if you use Viagra as a teenager.
Viagra can be dangerous for teenagers on its own, but an even bigger problems is that many young men are using Viagra in combination with other drugs. Ecstasy, alcohol, and other popular “club drugs” are top on the list for drugs mixed with Viagra. These combinations not only get the user higher, but they also increase energy – this can be dangerous in a club environment. Dehydration and prolonged erections are concerns, and both can lead to permanent damage and dehydration can lead to death. Additionally, drugs like alcohol may make your desire for sex increase, but it actually decreases your sexual performance ability – which is the opposite of your goals.
Using Viagra while high can also lead to a lower likelihood of using protection. Viagra will not protect you from STDs or pregnancy, so it is important to use other methods to prevent these things. Viagra is safe and effective for most men, but is not a good choice for people with certain medical conditions or who are using certain medications.
