5 Things You Might Not Know About Viagra
US News ^ | 03/27/2008 | Lindsay Lyon

Posted on 03/28/2008 1:35:43 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Ten years ago today, Viagra got the Food and Drug Administration's stamp of approval. Here are some facts about the little blue pill:

• Roughly 1 billion Viagra tablets have been doled out since the drug debuted.

• An average of about three Viagra tablets were dispensed each second between its launch and the end of last year.

• Thirty-five million men worldwide have used Viagra, which remains the most commonly prescribed drug for erectile dysfunction.

• The drug has been evaluated in more than 120 clinical trials involving more than 16,000 men.

• Viagra was also tested in about 3,000 women as a potential treatment for sexual arousal disorders. But the trials were "inconclusive," and Pfizer announced in 2004 that it had stopped them.

Statistics provided by Pfizer

What about those goofy ads with the guy on a motercycle and his plates read “Viagra” or the guys in the band singing Viva Viagra?!!!! And the ad I really don’t get at all - I think it’s for Cialis (sp) is why the couples are in the outdoors at the end in bathtubs?!! What’s that about?

I find a competitor's (Cialis) TV commercials to be a bit entertaining: If our product works in a BIG way for more than four hours, consult your physician.

I keep wondering the gender of their target market. Do they want the lads to get in line...or the lasses?

You can add that chasing it with beer can cause your skin to turn a light shade of blue. I heard that from someone, not through personal experience.

Stand up, stand up
The more you do it
The less you fall down
Stand up, stand up
Put your head in the clouds
And your feet on the ground
Stand up, stand up
For the time of your life
You turn it up loud
And stand up stand up ...

A man and his wife went to the chemist to pick up his prescription for Viagra. Seeing the $10 per pill price, the man was astonished - but his wife had a different opinion - “Oh, $40 a year ain’t too bad”.

No, no.

The request for tasteful comments was from the article.

I know better than to call for (or expect) tasteful comments from FReepers.

I’m just glad the moderators didn’t “No Thanks” this thread.

That's one of the side-effects they don't tell you about: after you take the pill you may just want to sit around with a guitar and a bunch of guys singing old Elvis tunes.

From an old email:

The boss of a Madison Avenue advertising agency called a spontaneous staff meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week. When everyone gathered, the boss, who understood the benefits of having fun, told the burnt out staff the purpose of the meeting was to have a quick contest. The theme was Viagra advertising slogans. The only rule was that they had to use past ad slogans, originally written for other products that captured the essence of Viagra. Slight variations were acceptable.

About 7 minutes later, they turned in their suggestions and created a Top Ten List. After all the laughter and camaraderie, the rest of the week went very well for everyone.

The top ten:
10. Viagra, Whaazzzzz Up!

9. Viagra, The quicker pecker upper.

8. Viagra, Like a rock!

7. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.

6. Viagra, Be all that you can be.

5. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.

4. Viagra, Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.

3. Viagra, Tastes great! More filling!

2. Viagra, We bring good things to life!

And the unanimous number one slogan:

1. This is your penis...
This is your penis on drugs

I'm sure many men have hearing loss with carrots as well. But has a definitive causal link has been established?
