Why is the popular drug Viagra so praised for its virtues, while the condom is vilified by conservative religious groups among others the world over? Both are 'external' technological interventions that relate to sexual activity.

Conservative religious groups want people to have children in order to bolster the numbers of their own religious groups. It is as simple and short sighted as that. Viagra / Kamagra improves the chances of this, whereas condoms diminish it.

Some still argue that condoms encourage promiscuity, but there is little evidence for this.

Viagra gives guys super boners, while the condom destroys the sensation of getting blown or sliding it in!

The maker of Viagra reported that a small nomber of users experience blindness and it can't be helped.

Is this really a question? It's sorta painfully obvious. It does boil down to perception, but not of the religious breeder variety. Condoms are acessible to people who are sexually active for pleasure (even though it's a practical deterrent to disease and unwanted pregnancy and abortion by extension). But because it's used to have carefree sex, the negative connotation turns condoms into a hedonistic tool that warps the sanctity of intimacy or cajoles children into surrendering their innocence (that's the perception talking). Viagra is used for men who want to regain their vitality to improve the romatic love life they share with a partner; it's not a party favor to be used for raucous, wanton sex nor would any child need it, so it's not helping to ensnare the vulnerable and trap them in a life of sin (again, just the perception.) Basically, condoms are a gateway to abuse and losing virtue, whereas Viagra is an aid to reclaiming something you already had. Messed up, but there it is.

Also, condom is less aesthetially pleasin in sight and sound. Condom looks and sounds similar to condemn or condone or dominate which all play up the theme of authority. But that's coincidence. Viagra is obviously more intentionally named to ring close to words like vigor, vitality, vivacious, viable and, last but not least virility. Score one, marketing wizards.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I would recommend . Excellent service, lowest price, product arrives within 2 weeks in plain envelope. They are the sole of discretion. Believe me, I have used them several times, not that I need them but wow.

I can recommend . Had business with them for over a year and never had any major problems. They can be slow at sending the order, but it always get there, and their customer service is great, always someone to talk to if their is a issue. Will do business with them again.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
First time I took Viagra from it took 30 to 40 mins to work. Work very well for me with no side effects. Was able to have sex more then once. My partner is also very pleased with the results.

Recently I tried to re-order meds on the website and was surprised to find out that it did not work. So, I contacted technical support via e-mail to find out what was wrong. Then I got the answer that the website was closed due to the appeal of competing companies, and that at that moment it was impossible to resolve this issue. I very much liked high-quality meds offered on this website, and I asked them to send me a link to the new address of this online store. In response, I was sent to this new address . Again, I was able to shop there.
If you are already a client, discounts you earned for shopping there will be preserved in full. I hope this information will be helpful for those who faced a similar problem when re-ordering.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple. placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 02/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy. wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.

I ordered Cialis soft tabs from once in the past and they arrived in about 2 weeks, no customs payable and they seem as good as the non generic product. An acknowledgment of my order would have been nice but when i phoned them they were polite and reassuring. I used the trackable service.

Always great to purchase online from a site that actually delivers what you order. I was more than happy with the service from and the pills worked as expected. For genuine generic medication, this is the place to be. I'll stick with what I know for the future.

I'm 37, my husband is 63. We tried Viagra and it works. We decided to try Cialis from RXPILL911 dot COM this past weekend just to compare the two. Cialis is unbelievable, None of the headaches or side effects that he would get from the Viagra and they really mean it when they say it lasts 36 hours. It is a little expensive, but well worth every penny to see your husbands confidence restored. Ladies take it from a VERY satisfied wife you wont be leaving the house for the entire weekend so get everything you need before he takes the pill. Life is good!
