What does viagra do young men

The Debrief: When we say recreationally, we mean buying it off your weed dealer to impress a new girlfriend. Yeah, that.

What do you think when you hear the word Viagra? Old men shuffling around with something uncomfortable down their trousers? Hugh Hefner? Heart attacks? Well, think again (and also apologies for bringing that hat-trick of unappealing images to your mind). Because apparently it’s not just the oldies who are popping the blue pills – increasing numbers of young men are now turning to those little diamonds too. 

The NHS first started offering UK men free Viagra in 2000 and since then the demand has increased year on year. Around 2.5million British men are prescribed Viagra annually, and in June 2013 Viagra lost its UK patent protection, so the drug became cheaper and more readily available – the price of a four-tablet pack dropped by a staggering £20. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

While it’s estimated that over half of men between the ages of 40 and 70 do suffer from some sort of erectile dysfunction and so would be eligible for prescription, younger men with no medical need for the drug find other ways of getting their hands on it – namely buying it off dodgy sites on the internet or, for those with a more Del Boy attitude to life, trying to wangle it from their GP. 'I went in and made up all sorts of stuff about how I was struggling to get it up etc,' one 27-year-old man tells me. 'But then the doctor began asking about whether I masturbated and I didn’t have the answer to that. In the end he told me to do four weeks of abstinence and come back to him.'

I get mine off the guy I buy weed from, but I know you can also get them online really easily.

But others seem to have had a much easier time. 'I get mine off the guy I buy weed from, but I know you can also get them online really easily,' Ben, a 29-year-old teacher tells me. 'The first time I was given it was when it was my 24th birthday and I was absolutely hammered (so probably wouldn't have been able to get it up) and my mate had some in liquid form, which he put in my pint as a bit of a joke.'

So did he enjoy his surprise experience? 'I loved it - it meant I had no problem performing, could last for absolutely ages and my 'recovery' time was really good - I think I had sex about five times that night which I could never have done, even at 19.' And clearly this first experience gave him a taste for more. 'Now I take it whenever I think I've had too much to drink or if I've done does coke because it eliminates the chance of having an issue getting a boner, or just if I really want what does viagra do young men to impress a girl with my stamina. I don't usually tell the girls because I'd rather they just thought I was a bit of a stud, but my friend all know and either think it's funny or actually do it themselves.'

It’s weird to think that some of our sexual partners might have been ‘helped’ in the bedroom without our knowledge. After all, aren’t 20-somethings meant to be in the prime of life – virile, raring to go and all that jazz? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that some are placing the blame directly at women’s feet. Whilst researching this piece I stumbled across an article in which therapist Raymond Francis claims that, 'women are now so empowered. They want sex on demand. They feel they have just as much right as men to dictate the pace sexually.” Ahem. Yes, that’s right ladies – who do we think we are, telling our boyfriends when we want to have sex rather than just lying back and thinking of England whenever your partner has those animal urges. Francis continues, 'Young men can then find themselves unable to have erections on demand – and they can start to bring these performance fears to the bedroom long before any sex takes place.' So basically, boys are becoming scared of sex and it’s all our fault. 

Now I take it whenever I think I've had too much to drink or if I've done coke because it eliminates the chance of having an issue getting a boner.

Not sure if I want to take this damning conclusion at face value, I decided to ask for a second opinion. I spoke to Denise Knowles, a sex therapist who works for Relate, the UK’s largest relationship support providers for her views on the issue. 'Young men are feeling a bit overwhelmed by what they perceive are expectations on them,' she says. 'Some might be watching porn but they’re also surrounded by a very much more sexualised society where there is still this idea that to be a man you’ve got be able to have an erection and sustain it all night.'

I ask her what she think of Francis’ (flawed) argument. 'If only it was that simple - it’s much more complex issue. Women, both young and old, have become more predatory and able to enjoy sex, rather than feel that it’s a duty, but we need a better understanding of what sex actually is. We should be realistic - if a woman is on the hunt for an orgasm, there are many more ways then just through penetration and a lot of these young men are taking it when there’s no need.'

'The problems happen when there was never a issue with blood flow in the first place' - i.e. when you’re 25 and just want to show your girlfriend a really good time for one special night.

And if there’s no medical need, are these young men actually doing more damage than they think? 'I haven't thought about the health risks,' Ben tells me. 'It can't be any worse for your heart than doing coke, can it?' Surprised by this rather flippant comparison I asked a (female) doctor whether the drug has other effects rather than the rather obvious, desired result.  '"Viagra" works by keeping the blood vessels in the penis dilated, improving blood flow to the area after sexual arousal,' she explains. 'The problems happen when there was never a issue with blood flow in the first place' - i.e. when you’re 25 and just want to show your girlfriend a really good time for one special night.

'Less severe side effects include headache, dizziness, facial flushing, blurred vision, diarrhoea and nose bleeds. However, some studies show in two per cent of Viagra users the tablet can cause heart attacks, particularly in those unaware of any current heart problems.' And that’s not even the worst of it - 'some men may agree the worst case scenario happens when the penis remains painfully engorged for hours, potentially days, needing decompression with a very long needle.' Ouch – if they put that on the packaging I wonder how many young Brits would still be popping the pills on a regular basis. 

'While Viagra is a lifeline for many men, it is an efficacious medicine with effects all over the body,' she concludes.  'As such it should be taken seriously and not simply thought of as a bit of fun.' Well, quite.
