Market watchers and every man over 50 is anxiously awaiting FDA approval and widespread distribution of Stendra, the new 15 minute fast acting erectile dysfunction drug that hopes to compete with if not replace Viagra. Anyone who has taken Viagra, otherwise known as the “magic” blue pill knows that it takes about an hour to take “full” effect, leading many men to come up with various delay tactics such as needing to check an important phone message from the office, reading the online Sports section.. again or finishing the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle, Millenium edition. The sound of ones wife or sex partner tapping their toes impatiently and/or making a face gesture that clearly says, “So, is NASA going to launch or not?” has been one of the few untoward side-effects and limitations of the wonder drug that has made Pfizer Inc. billions of dollars. Sure, occasionally a Viagra user either goes blind or ends up with a permanent erection but most of us are willing to trade some vision for a sexual experience akin to nuclear fission.

Nobody wants to waste that kind of God-like experience, short-lived as it might be, even if it leaves somebody with a towel bar in their trousers for a day or two. Vivus Inc., the makers of Avavanil (Stendra) are betting on the fact that most Americans hate to wait, and if anyone has tried the chewing gum version of Viagra, or God forbid bitten into a Viagra pill in a vain attempt to get a quicker response time knows it tastes only slightly better then Amoxicillin….ewww.
