“Oh, honey, it’s ok...with this new drug you’re able to penetrate me at least 50% of the time..and it seems to work fast, I’m barely undressed and you’re ready to go. You should try the other new drug, so you can complete intercourse 30% of the time, a day after taking it...”
The introduction of Viagra (sildenafil, Pfizer, Canada) revolutionized our understanding of erectile function. The International Index of Erectile Function and the Sexual Health Inventory for Men have become important tools in the scientific evaluation of erectile dysfunction. Success is measured by perception of turgidity, and a successful session includes a rigid penis, penetration and ejaculation. This might be more useful if everyone had the same partner in the clinical trials. Men measure success much differently than women. For example, we have a good day shopping if we get the power drill at Home Hardware and are back home in 45 mins, while our wives can shop all day, buy nothing and enjoy describing their day to their girlfriend. Men and women have sex like they shop – enough said.
