Viagra – The Legal Performance Enhancing Drug


Dr. Kal, Doctor, Health and Fitness Instructor. Former Fat Man.

Every time I turn on ESPN, I hear something about performance enhancing drugs. Typically, it’s something about some Senator wasting millions of tax payer’s dollars investigating whether or not some millionaire athlete used steroids or human growth hormone to boost their stats.

These public officials obviously do not know about the millions of drug-dealers and drug-abusers roaming the streets of countless inner-cities in the United States. They are more concerned with Barry Bond’s home run numbers than innocent children getting shot by a drug-dealer’s stray bullet. OK, time to get off the pulpit.

One day while watching a commercial for Viagra, I thought to myself: Now there’s a real performance enhancing drug.

Viagra

For those of you who live in a box, Viagra is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. A man needs a certain amount of blood flow to his penis in order to maintain an erection. Men with an erectile dysfunction cannot maintain this needed blood flow. Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra work in similar ways to increase the blood flow to the penis. In other words, when a man cannot perform, he pops a Viagra and it enhances his performance.

These drugs do work for most men. However, they are expensive and have potential side effects. The good news is that these medications can be completely avoided by most of the men who need them.

Erectile Dysfunction

There are many causes of erectile dysfunction. However, most of these causes are physical.

Some common physical causes of erectile dysfunction are:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Heart Disease
  • Smoking

All of these conditions are preventable with lifestyle changes or weight loss. In other words, you can prevent and sometimes cure erectile dysfunction by losing weight, eating a healthy well-balanced diet, exercising and not smoking.

So, the next time you think about ordering a Number One supersized from McDonald’s, remember the performance enhancing drugs you will be forced to take. I personally love Big Macs, but I don’t love them that much.

  1. Hmmm…

    Big Macs…Sex…Big Macs…Sex…

    Lol.

    Wouldn’t it be great if we all took a moment to reflect on the possible after-effects of eating a Super value meal at McDonald’s before we ordered it?

    Instant gratification is a major downfall right here in America…how do you stop it? I guess a well-written article about how Big Macs make you go limp isn’t a bad start! Thank you for the “in-your-face” commentary. Everybody needs a wake-up call at some point in their life, maybe this is one for somebody out there.

    Jumpstart, I live for giving wake-up calls. I got mine at age 25 and my goal is to give as many as possible before I leave this world.

    It is interesting my name is Kal too and i am also in the business. Great post, totally right.

  4. Viagra is not a solution today, because of its various side effects…

  5. Great Post Dr. Kal, Men should excercise more and look for alternatives to Viagra first. And I don’t mean herbal pills, I mean eating right.
