Smoking can cause impotency because it constricts blood vessels.  Erections are caused by bloodflow to the erectile tissue in the penis.  Anything that inhibits that flow of blood will have an effect on erections.  Smoking, drug use, stress, circulatory disorders, etc.  Many prescription drugs, especially anti-depressants, can also cause it.  Viagra was originally tested as a drug to treat some sort of cardiovascular disorder...then they happened to notice the effect it had on Mr. Stiffy and saw the profit potential.  

While it's not exactly curing cancer, it's something that improves quality of life for a great number of men.  Impotency can be very humiliating and stressful, causing a fair share of psychological trauma.

Diabetics can cause this.........Viagra has a very obvious counter effect after taking.

Geez, maybe I should take Viagra to increase my chronically low blood pressure.

To quote Jay....
"While it's not exactly curing cancer, it's something that improves quality of life for a great number of men. Impotency can be very humiliating and stressful, causing a fair share of psychological trauma."

It's important to women too, who may think that a man is not aroused because he does not find her attractive.  With the emphasis our society puts on attractiveness, that can be stressful indeed.

I tried Viagra but I have difficulty swallowing pills.

Does anyone know a cure for a stiff neck?

Good point Bob, but I don't think Corbeille was trying to be hurtful.
