I'm 36 years old and I'm using viagra (and possibly cialis soon) because of a bout of Peyronie's Disease I had about 6 years ago. It left the head of my penis not getting fully hard, which makes natural erections fairly high maintenance. I also don't get very strong or frequent nocturnal erections anymore (I'm having my testosterone tested, but assume it has to do with the Peyronie's).

All that is to say, 25mg of viagra turns me into Superman. I'm hard before sex even begins, I can go two or three times in a row for a long time, side effects are minimal (at 25mg) and I'm frankly better than I was before, at least I haven't had sexual capacity like that since high school or college. So, viagra works for me like gangbusters.

But even with that being the case, I have to say I feel emberassed and kind of depressed that I'm having to rely on a pill for virility. My girlfriend is totally understanding and is a sexual dynamo, liking sex everyday (she's only 27), but still, I think, if it wasn't for drugs, I'd be maybe half the man I am on them. Then I start worrying what if the drugs ever stop working, etc., etc.

I hate to sound like a whiner, because I realize how lucky I am to be living in an age where medical science can fix me with a pill, even making me better than I should be at my age. And I tell myself I wouldn't think less of a heart patient for being on heart meds, or a person prone to depression for being on an SRI drug like Prozac. But are there any other "young" guys out there on these ED drugs that wrestle with this issue? If so, I'd like to hear from you.

Thanks.
