The Dark Side Of Kamagra And Viagra Use (And Abuse)

I’ll start this article with a disclaimer that I have never had, or been diagnosed with, erectile dysfunction. Unlike me, you should never use drugs like Viagra unless prescribed by a medical doctor.

However, there are those certain times in our lives when we’ve had a particularly heavy weekend and little Johnny doesn’t want to play along. This is often due to a chemical rather than a medical condition and should be treated with rest and NOT more chemicals.

Try telling that to younger me though when it’s 6 am on Sunday and I find myself inexplicably in bed with whatever nubile young thing has erroneously chosen to follow me home. Naked and faced with a horny customer, I find myself having to explain the rather embarrassing state of affairs in my nether regions.

Now, if you do find yourself in this situation I strongly suggest tending to her needs first, for two reasons. One, if you provide her with a decent orgasm it may well take her attention off your lack of potency. Two, I quite often find that igniting her fire down there will also cause your genitals to suddenly decide to join the party.

If, however, this doesn’t work then you are left in the rather annoying position of being horny and unsatisfied. A few exceptionally hard-working and incredibly talented young ladies have solved this problem for me with their outstanding oral skills – but this can’t always be expected.

Enter: Kamagra (a Viagra substitute).

I was introduced to Kamagra by a friend after regaling him with a tale of my woeful inability to satiate the needs of an exploit the previous evening. He whipped out a small gel packet the size of a condom and told me to take it next time I had the problem. Well, I have to admit, it works well.  

Too well.

Within the space of a few months, I had become entirely dependant on Kamagra, using it on an almost daily basis even when entirely sober and not ‘chemically’ challenged. Initially, I didn’t tag on to the why this is a really, really bad idea. I flitted around London enjoying my new found sexual prowess, often being kicked out at 3 am by women because they had work the next day and it was beginning to hurt them ‘down there’.

It all came to a head on a cold wet Valentine’s Day one forgettable February some years ago. I had been partying all weekend with friends and had to meet a woman for some or other bizarre bondage fantasy game. Knowing I would need to perform on arrival I pre-dosed with a Kamagra but after half an hour it still hadn’t kicked in. I also had a Viagra on me so figured it couldn’t hurt to try that too.

Unfortunately, I hadn’t eaten or slept for a while and the weekend’s additional chemical enhancements didn’t meld too well with the penis pills. Needless to say within an hour or so I collapsed and suffered through what felt like a mild heart-attack while trying to convince the poor woman I didn’t need an ambulance (which I almost certainly did). Fortunately, I survived and lived to provide you with this warning so you don’t suffer the same.

Recreational Drugs and Viagra (Sildenafil) Do Not Like Each Other

All the various types of erectile dysfunction drugs like Kamagra, Cialis and Viagra are basically a form of the drug Sildenafil, which was originally designed to treat heart disease. In a weird twist of fate though, it’s not very good for your heart if you don’t actually have heart disease.

Sildenafil causes hypertension or high blood pressure. Do you know what also causes hypertension?  Alcohol, cocaine or any other recreational drugs, especially when mixed. Do you know what double hypertension causes?  You guessed it: nothing good. Hypertension can result in increased heart rate, headaches, and nausea and extreme hypertension can result in stroke, heart attack, coma, and death.

It’s a fact of life today that young men will use recreational drugs on occasion, and the resulting erectile dysfunction caused by this will lead them to want performance enhancing aids. Sure, mixing recreational drugs with penis pills is not going to give you a heart attack immediately but long-term use will reduce the effects of both, causing you to increase the dosage.

Being dependent on Viagra in your late twenties or early thirties is not a good look, and it means that when you do get to your 40s and 50s, nothing is going to work anymore. Psychological dependence on Sildenafil is just like any other drug and if left untreated can be a very difficult habit to kick.

If you want to go out and party with your friends then make that just a night of partying – go home after and rest. If you want to have a long, healthy sex life though, consider toning down the drug use. Sex is way better sober anyway and when you get to your late 30s, you’ll thank yourself, trust me.
