How Does Viagra Work ?
« on: 23/03/2009 12:45:10 »
Dearest Viagraologists,


Look here are some blue pills ..




Now look what happenned when Caruthers ate one !!



A few questions about the blue pill !


Does it work on girlies ?..if so..what does it do ?

Does it have other effects on the body ?..or does it specifically work in the ' joy department ' ?..if so..how does it target the one location ?



I'm a curious sheepy and I'd like my curiosity satiated !

Hugs & shmishes

mwah mwah mwah

boy, that's a hard question.

Basically, viagra works by blocking the enzyme phosphodiesterase (PDE) or, more specifically, PDE5, which is penile specific. PDE inhibits cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) which is the chemical released by the brain that relaxes smooth muscle.
So by blocking the enzyme that stops the function of smooth muscle relaxing the penis is free to fill and stay fuller for longer.

Does it work in women? Anecdotal evidence suggests that it does.. I think that there is a more specific drug for women with arousal issues.

A random fact - viagra was never developed as a a sex drug - it was tested originally to see if it could help people with angina by expanding the blood vessels around the heart that cause pain when they contract. It didn't work very well on the angina but the male participants in the trial looked unusually happy all the time... and the researchers got suspicious and put two and two together to make five. Serendipity rules...

You mean something came up during the experiment?

There was, I understand, some debate among the experimenters. They wanted to patent the idea of a pharmaceutical treatment for erectile disfunction but feared that the patent would be challenged legally on the basis of teh rather limited evidence available. In the end they decided that(all together now)
 it would stand up in court.

Ha, ha, ha, ha,.......................very good Andy, very funny.

What really gets to me is the commercial where they tell you "seek a doctors help if it lasts for more than 4 hours". Something tells me they're just bragging on their products effectiveness.........Ethos

Four Hours might be quite fun! LOL.. But do you really think it could be harmful or uncomfortable for that long?
