    As I sat here, reading G&G tonight, I heard no fewer than six Viagra/Cialis commercials. What gives?

    I'm getting tired of having those come on while my 8-year-old is in the room. We've talked a little on the birds and bees, but not much. I'd rather do it at our own pace than to have to explain commercials. Seems like you can't turn on anything anymore without an ED ad of some kind. Bugs me! Bugs you? (Yes, I know I can turn the tube off--I often do!)

    To me, it's like having commercials for Pepsi or Coke...we already know they exist! We don't need reminded 100 times a night.

    Anyway, I'm just venting and thought I'd post something goofy (many would say I do that normally).

    Oh, and for the record, if I have have an E that lasts 4 hours, forget the doctor, I'm calling the local paper!

    IF I HAD AN ERECTION LASTING FOUR HOURS

    I WOULD CALL THE HOME OFFICE OF THE GUINESS BOOK OF RECORDS
    :lmao:

    Seriously, I too am sick of the ads that just go on and on and on most likely making many normal men feel inferior just so they can generate more profit.

    A Russian girl group has begun making fun of all this by naming themselves
    VIAgra. They are three beautiful women who have different women come and go from the threesome but no one notices as they are so beautiful.
    The gag is that they sign terribly but the joke goes over well.

    I think the best wisecrack about viagra was made by the late George Carlin:

    "If I have an erection that lasts four hours, I'm not calling a doctor; I'm calling a hooker."

    Some members here on g&g obviously are relatively young, and with young children who watch and listen to commercials intently and in detail.

    But...for older men, Viagra And Cialias offer a hope for good news. Information on those products can be viewed as helpful.

    As for young kids watching commercials of all kinds, parents are still responsible to use the on/off switch when they don't approve of advertisng, just like when we use the "ignore" switch on g&g when we don't approve of certain member's posts.

    The thing about Viagra is you have to swallow them fast or you'll get a stiff neck!

    Wait! We can ignore certain users??!! SWEET. Just kidding. I don't ignore anyone.

    I would not argue of the merits of such a drug to improve quality of life for millions of men (and women). But I do wonder why they can't inject a little more tact in the commercials, or put them on later at night, or put them on more senior-oriented shows.

    I shouldn't have to explain what a 4-hour erection is when we're watching a sports show on a local station before dinner.

    And yes, I have SEVERELY moderated TV viewing in our house since my son became aware of his surroundings. But there's hardly anything you can watch anymore without stuff like this. Maybe I'm a little old fashioned, but that's how I like it...

    Like everything, there's a time and a place...

    I don't have any children so I tend to just ignore them. What does bother me is the defamation of Elvis Presleys "Viva Las Vegas". Now that bugs the crap out of me.

    Oh, crap! I forgot about that one. I kind of get a kick out of that one. That's exactly what I'm talking about...it gets the product advertised and adults understand, but there's nothing in it that I need to explain. "Male enhancement" can be anything...

    Ah...I remember those days. Life sure does change.

    I've watched so much Spongebob to date that I've dreamed about living in Bikini Bottom (not the good one, either).

    ...who lives in a pineapple under the sea...get it out of my head!!

    Yet they still must make money off them...or else they wouldn't run them over, and over, and over, and over...

    The thing that gets me is some exec. watches these in his office and says yes that's good. They must live in fantasyland.

    My wife and I have had this conversation many times... All I can think is that there's a bunch of yes-men in the board room, not willing to tell the old man that it's crap.

    My cockatiel can whistle that song. It's hillarious.

    I think their marketing people should get on the edge and do a Messing With Sasquatch Viagra commercial. That would be really funny. :)

    I brought some Viagra home one day and my wife said "You don't need those!" and threw them in the toilet.

    Now we have hard water!
