Up and Up

The younger set takes on Viagra. Bob Dole would be proud.

What's the benefit? What would you not be able to do without it, that, as a 30-year-old man, you can do with it?

"I've tried it twice. The first time, I think it was a placebo. The second time, I think it was just to experience it. The third time I took it, I told the person that I was with that I'd taken X, and in turn, he gave me half a Viagra."

Is sex better on Viagra?

"I don't think so."

His friend, 31-year-old John, a tall man with light brown hair, glasses, and a goatee explained that Viagra is a remedy for another common limp-penis inducing party product: alcohol. "People get drunk, and then they can't 'cause they're drunk. They take a Viagra 'cause they're drunk.

"You know what's hysterical," he continued, "is I was dating somebody who was a doctor and could have Viagra whenever he wanted. He said, 'Take one.' I said, 'Well, what's that?' He said, 'It's a little bit of Viagra.'

"It came on right after the alcohol. Big time."

Don cuts in. "With X, the hard-on goes up, it goes down..." He put his hands out and yelled down as if he were arguing with his penis.

Don laughed. John laughed too.

One more question: Can people you have sex with be less attractive now that it's easier to get a hard on?

Their replies were telling about their characters:

Don said, "I don't have sex with people just because I have a hard on -- because sex for me takes a lot of work."

John added: "No, even on Viagra you have to be stimulated to get that hard on.
