nothing really, thats why GTN was used rather than viagra to treat angina, it would just slightly dialate your genitals. You MIGHT notice some increase in lubrication when aroused but when not aroused you wouldnt notice any effects at all. it only enhances arousal, it doesnt cause it which is why its used to treat erectile dysfuntion. you dont pop a pill then stay errect for 24 hours, it just helps the receptors respond to the hormones which cause the physical symptoms of arousal

They must have done studies on women who have taken the same viagra pill to see what happens to them.

Well I think you should just take a pill and see what happens. You will still be a 21 yr old virgin. Maybe a 21 yr old virgin with a sprained wrist though

no, viagra is a drug we study as part of the degree im doing because it means we cant admister GTN because the 2 drugs together cause a MASSIVE drop in blood pressure.

during the lecture i happened to ask some other questions about it because i was interested to see if a person presenting with angina who has already taken viagra would be clincially worse than someone in the same situation if they HADN'T taken the viagra. turns out it means nothing clincially except that you cant give GTN

Shorty and I have just finished the Laboratory tests.

After thorough testing, the Viagra study turned out quite conclusively: stimulating and enjoyable.

( I need to draw some Far-Side type comic for that line)

I have administered a small sampling to a female gerbal and she seems to be smiling allot. The male is with her but seems to not be aware of her "arousal" but only wants to run around on his circular running device. The female just sems to be waiting for him to finish I guess and sits there with a glow about her.

The human genitalia are very similar at least in terms of their embryonic origins, and in fact the clitoris is essentially just a miniature corona (penile head).

In girls the "penis" simply fails to close itself off, the corona/clitoris stays put and the vaginal opening develops.

In short they are similar structures and innervated and provided with blood in much the same way. Therefore Viagra should produce increased sexual arousal in both sexes.

HERE'S THE PROBLEM!! --> Insurance won't pay for it.

Antidepressants along with other psychiatric pharmaceuticals diminish the female sex drive, almost completely eliminating desire/enjoyment of sex in some cases. Viagra (along with Cialis) has been shown to help in some cases.

But at $15 a pill who can afford it? "Oh, okay,$15 a pill every time you want to get laid, no problem!"

...well, go pick up 100 of them sometime. Mmmkay? Yah, didn't think so.
