Men who take drugs like Viagra and Cialis continue to express more concern and dissatisfaction with their overall sex life, compared with men who don’t suffer from erectile dysfunction, according to results of a survey conducted by researchers at the University of Manchester.
These men also are more likely to worry about their erections, orgasms, level of sexual desire and frequency of sexual activity, said David Lee, a research fellow on ageing at the university’s School of Social Sciences.
“Their sexual function improved, but these men weren’t reporting that they were any happier with their sexual relations with their partner,”
Lee said. Men taking Viagra-type drugs also were more sexually active and more frequently engaged in sexual intercourse, compared to men without erectile dysfunction, the researchers found.
That raises the possibility that the men who ask for Viagra are more preoccupied with sex and, thus, more likely to be critical of their experiences, said Dr. Landon Trost, a urologist.
