When it comes to knowing exactly how it works and what effects it can deliver in different situations, Viagra has been around for enough time now. There still many people who push the use of Viagra to the limits by taking it for recreational purposes, with all that being said. While this was quite a boom during the early 2000’s when the drug was still a novelty, today this trend doesn’t seem to fade away especially among the younger men. Doctors are still being reported with strange side effects resulting from the heavy mix of Viagra, alcohol and street drugs, despite the fact that the famous ED pill has little potential for recreational activity. But it certainly takes a little more precise explanation knowing that many people are still curious about its over-the-counter potential. So let’s see why Viagra is actually a bad recreational drug.
The widespread misconception
The widespread misconception about its effects is the main reason why people still want to use Viagra as a party or street drug. Many people still believe that it acts like an aphrodisiac, stimulating the user’s libido and turning them into a sex machine. It’s easy to imagine how the drug is desirable when mixed with other substances that either relax the user or change their perception of reality. The bad news, however, is that Viagra doesn’t do anything about your libido. It only improves the quality of the user’s erection and nothing more. The stamina, the sex drive, the sensations remain the same. So there’s really little sense in using the drug for recreational purposes, especially when taking the risks into account.
The risks associated with recreational use of Viagra are very pronounced and linked directly to the substances being used with it. Viagra is rarely taken on its own, usually a part of a heavy mix of alcohol and street drugs. And while the substances alone are known to cause serious side-effects and interactions, adding Viagra to the picture with its effects on blood pressure is certainly not a good idea. Documenting the exact aggravations is a hard task since no one will admit they’ve used illegal substances. But a serious headache, painful long-lasting erection, fainting, hearing loss, vomiting, rushing, swelling and vision problems are just some of the milder symptoms observed in those who were foolish enough to mix different recreational substances with Viagra. Some street drugs may actually cause a lethal drop in blood pressure when mixed with Viagra, so there’s a great deal of risk involved in an experiment that doesn’t provide any substantial results in the first place.
The final word
No matter how great it may sound to use Viagra with street drugs or alcohol at a party – just don’t. Keep in mind that it’s a plain stupid idea right from the start as the drug won’t make wonders when it comes to sex. Sure, it can help you get a better erection, especially if you happen to have mild problems or your erectile function is seriously affected by the substances you’ve used. But knowing the risk associated with such a horrible mix it’s more likely that you’ll spend the night in the emergency room or passed out on the couch rather than enjoying out-of-this-world sex you’ve been dreaming about.
