A few things I learned that might help others
Since puberty I've always beeen an avid masturbator. As usual I learned the basics by listening to older kids at school and finding the occasional porn mag. I've always incorporated masturbation into my sex life, with every girlfriend and my present and former wife.
About ten years ago I began to have trouble with my erections. This was particulary troublesome because I was seperated from my first wife and getting back into dating after 10 years. I had a few embarrassing evenings, but all my partners were understanding. We were able to find solutions where we could both find release; usually through masturbation and or oral. I was surprised by the number of women who loved to see a guy masturbate. All you had to do was get over being shy and be up front about your situation.
Thanks now to Viagra, I can have sex the way I used to; however, some planning is required due to the delay from taking to erection. This I found is a great time for foreplay that many women say we men all but ignore.
As cool as Viagra is, it is expensive. One way to cut cost is to get the largest 20mg pills and cut them in half. 10mg is sufficient for most people and a prescription of 20mg Viagra costs the same as one for 10mg.
I have used viagra to masturbate when I want that feeling of a good cum through a stiff hard on. However, I usually use some lube and find my penis will get half hard on its own. Plenty hard enough to cum.
My wife is aware of my masturbation habits and often lends a hand! I hope this info helps any of you in the same boat. Since I'm always eager to learn new things-please post any ideas you have as well, Thanks. OG
