Boots to sell erectile enhancement services

First approved by the FDA over a decade ago in 1998, Viagra has since served over 23 million happy men. But with only 10% of 3 million men with erectile dysfunction being treated, Boots saw a gap in the market and is now offering Sildenafil Citrate at 23 of its pharmacies from tomorrow. Men across the UK no longer have to sneak off with poor excuses to Manchester where the pilot scheme started in 2007.

For those shy of attending their doctor's surgery, a 30 minute consult with a Boots pharmacist (who will get you to reveal all your sexual dysfunctions and write about it on a secret blog) is all you now need to obtain the prescription only medication.

Price starts from £55 for the initial consult plus 4 pills, with subsequent doses at £26.59. This is marginally higher than buying from dodgy internet websites that are arguably legal.  Boots research revealing that 47% of men would prefer to 'suffer in silence' rather than discuss their penile problems with a fellow human being, but is this really going to be a successful scheme? As a side note, Pfizer's worldwide patent on Sildenafil citrate expires 2011-2013, so is Boots offering this to just stay afloat in these tough times? More importantly, do you really need it?

Viagra for you, emergency contraception and chlamydia treatment for her. Truly a match made in heaven. But I still prefer Cialis. Have you ever used Viagra? Do you think it's still way overpriced? What do you think of Boots' move? Let's hear your thoughts!

    One of the pharamists in my local Boots looks like Sarah Palin. Wouldn't mind 30 minutes in a private side room with her. Bet she's not very hygenic given half a chance. :-O Probably wouldn't need the viagra in those circumstances.

    Great fathers day gift, thanks

    Surely, Sarah Palin is a major cause for American erectile dysfunction - how can this be different the other side of the Atlantic?

Goon, and other readers, should note: I am gay and - as you advised - I tried taking Viagra in the bottom but it had little beneficial effect, Apparently Boots is now also selling Viagra in the form of eye drops. It doesn't give you a hard on but it makes you look hard!

    Nice post. I am posting a link back to this on my Digg, Mixx, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Twitter and Facebook right away. I feel the internet needs more health related helpful writers like yourself. Keep up the good work.

    Great write up - five stars. I bookmarked this page. I am promoting my blog which is based around the topic of men's health and we are also promoting a few men's sexual health related products like Vimax Pills, Vimax Extenders, Vimax Patches etc. Please check out my bog for more details.

    The price of those is very expensive compared to the price of Kamagra. There are lots of websites that sell Kamagra and they don't charge for a prescription either.
