Did you know that the risk of getting an STD is higher if you use an erectile dysfunction drug? Well, let's not get the lawsuits ready just yet. It seems that "the fault lies not with the drugs but rather the high risk behaviors of those who request them". If you read the piece carefully you will see that the higher risk groups that were studied were bisexual or homosexual men. In reality, however, it doesn't matter. I have found that in the real world there are young men trying to claim to have erectile dysfunction but really want Viagra or Cialis to enhance sexual activity. That is why it is a black market drug. And now you know the rest of the story. My apologies to the late Paul Harvey, who may or may not have had erectile dysfunction.
