Generic Viagra Invades Sports Doping

Steroids and human growth hormone are the most famous substances for enhancing performance in sporting activities, but now there is a new name to add to the list – generic Viagra. It seems that sildenafil, also found in popular Viagra pills, has properties that can also help an athlete gain the extra edge to beat his competitors. Although the little blue pill is most commonly used to treat the condition of erectile dysfunction, many researchers have been examining the different ways the drug can be utilized. The medication has also started being used to treat altitude sickness and chronic pulmonary hypertension in babies. Enhancing performance is just the newest benefit to be found from this wonder drug.

Across the globe, there is only one major organization that deals with using performance enhancers during athletic competition – the World Anti-Doping Agency. Located in Switzerland, this group was begun to help monitor and regulate the use of drugs and other substances by athletes. The first major use of the organization was in testing Olympic athletes, but many professional and amateur sporting groups have jumped on the bandwagon and started using their guidelines. Receiving major media attention, the group has turned its eyes toward generic Viagra as the  next potentially banned substance.

Of course, the obvious question is whether the drug provides an increase in a man’s performance while on the playing field. A number of institutions and research labs have completed studies to address this issue. One of the most thorough studies was done by Marywood University and sponsored and funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency. The initial results have been to state that generic Viagra does allow a person to exercise and counter the effect of elevated altitude after taking the medication. This means that exercise practices at extreme sea levelsare more easily dealt with. The pills achieve this result by opening the arteries of a person’s lungs, allowing them to breathe with much less difficulty. Vic Conte, a man who famously helped professional baseball players acquire steroids, has publicly stated that he advised many of his clients to take generic Viagra for its performance enhancing qualities.

However, there is another major controversy that is related to using generic Viagra to improve athletic performance. The question is whether athletes should be banned from using the drug. The drug is intended for erectile dysfunction and the majority of men use it for this intention. Stripping athletes of the right to take generic Viagra could also be limiting them from normal and healthy sexual activity. While other medications may be used to treat the condition, generic Viagra has been a proven winner and restricting use could increase the number of men with erectile dysfunction problems.

This is a warning: girls can be mean. Behind those cute eyes and plump lips lies an angry woman that is ready to let loose her vengeance against any man that gets in her way. Of course, not every girl is like this, or at least not all of the time, but the fact that some are should be reason enough for a man to be on his guard at all times. Sometimes it can seem like the smallest thing will set her off or sometimes it is months of arguments that leads to a fiery tirade. In any case, a guy will need to prepare himself for these outbursts and know how best to react. Read more

Do Weirdos Score?

It may surprise most “normal” men, but those that are considered weird, strange, or nerdy often have sex that is just as passionate and exciting as that of the “normal” men. In fact, the term normal no longer has much relevance and can actually have negative implications. One could say that a man who is normal is simply not experimenting with his sexual desires and wants as much as he should. Having less common sexual desires implies that a man has identified what turns him on and is willing to be vocal about wanting this specific type of sexual activity. Therefore, it is a misnomer to call the man weird or strange. Chances are that he actually knows more about his own sexuality than the so-called normal man. On the other hand, there is such a thing as taking it too far. Read more

Tackling the sense of lost selflessness and utter loneliness is not often easy. Getting back on track with your life is a constant reminder of her and what the two of you used to do together. From going for breakfast at that old place near your apartment to grocery shopping at the local organic foods market, you have taken up some new customs along the now broken path of love. You got rid of your dirty white socks with an “air hole” strategically located on the thumb’s side and traded them for comfy yet stylish pant socks. People complimented your improved appearance and much needed haircut. Your girlfriend made a master piece out of you, but it all feels pointless now that she has gone off to greener pastures. You might think you are okay with her taking up that cool job up in Amsterdam, while you continue to struggle with life back home. But who are you kidding, man? You miss her. Here is where your best buddies and a bit of imagination come in handy. Now start forgiving and forgetting. Read more

Nice Guys Vs Bad Boys, An Evolution Issue?

Love them or hate them, women secretly seem to have a visceral attraction towards the so-called bad boy stereotype. Seemingly unable to get themselves away from these conceited, self-righteous and overconfident males, women love the essential bad boy and men would love to be him. Though rules of conduct would point to females looking for a kind and trustworthy male to pair up with, everyday social interaction says otherwise. Have a girl asked out by a nice guy and she will soon get bored of him claiming he is “too nice” – as in too complacent, too needy, too soft, too much less of a man. What does that mean anyway? Are girls really looking for an arrogant bastard that treats them like dirt? Evolution says yes. Read more
