When Viagra was first released, many women predicted that it would cause problems with marriage. Their predictions have turned out to be true: according to divorce lawyers, Viagra gets mentioned in a large percentage of cases. Since there still is no “pink” Viagra available, women are left in the dust of sexual dysfunction while their partners enjoy healthy sexual function. With women unable to keep up, infidelity can become a problem with men taking Viagra.
That isn’t to say that Viagra is all evil. While it may be causing many men to seek sexual satisfaction outside of marriage, Viagra has also saved a lot of marriages. Sexual intimacy is a vital part of any healthy relationship. By making sex possible again, Viagra can restore lost intimacy and help couples reconnect.
So how do you find the Viagra balance between intimacy and infidelity?
According to psychologists studying the Viagra phenomena, the little blue pill isn’t directly guilty for any marriage problems. Rather, Viagra can enhance problems which are already there. For example, men who are going through midlife crises often feel sexually insecure. Since they have Viagra to improve their sexual function, they may deal with their insecurities by looking for a younger women to have an affair with. Another common scenario seen by divorce lawyers and psychologists involves men with menopausal wives. While the women are dealing with reduced libido, the men are coming to terms with newfound sexual prowess, so may look elsewhere to fulfill their needs.
In many cases, couples are quick to blame a dysfunctional sex life as the cause of all their problems. Then, when Viagra fixes this problem, they realize that sex wasn’t the problem at all. Being able to have sex may not be the solution to all your relationship problems!
If you are a man in a healthy, monogamous relationship but suffering from erectile dysfunction, the best thing to do is talk to your partner before you take Viagra. Do not take Viagra without telling your partner! Your partner may even think that your new interest in sex is because you are cheating. If your partner is also dealing with the sexual effects of aging or health problems, then she may not be prepared for your Viagra erection.
Communication is key to overcoming any relationship difficulties. By adding Viagra to the mix of an already troubled relationship, it will just complicate things – unless you talk about Viagra first. Make sure that you discuss how important sex is for the relationship and what each of you wants out of sex.
There is much more to sex than intercourse. Viagra may help men get an erection but it isn’t going to boost your libido, make you better in bed, or solve your relationship problems. But, if both you and your partner miss sexual intimacy, then Viagra can help restore that aspect of your relationship by getting rid of those dysfunction problems.
