So herbal dick hardeners actually work, do they?

This is fun:

They sent undercover consumers into convenience stores and gas stations in the Atlanta and Baltimore areas, and bought products such as Rize 2 The Occasion, Stiff 4 Hours, and Man King.

Although 57 of the products claimed to be \”all natural,\” 81 percent of them contained the tadalafil or sildenafil (marketed as Cialis and Viagra, respectively) or similar ingredients that are not approved by the FDA.

They\’re actually doping the \”herbs\” with chemicals. That\’s why they work.

Which leads to an interesting business proposition. Why not actually make, safely, regularly, securely, dose efficiently, etc, a \”herbal\” remedy which has a consistent amount of tadalafil in it?

  1. Because it would be a lie, in that it wouldn’t be herbal.

    Also, they don’t actually pay the licensing fees for taldalafil / sildenafil to Glaxo / Pfizer, which is why they are much cheaper than Cialis or Viagra.

    It’s the same situation as Kamagra, which is sildenafil made by Ajanta Pharma in India, and is widely (illegally) sold outside India because it’s a lot cheaper than Pfizer’s Viagra.

    There’s a demand for erection tablets cheaper than Viagra / Cialis. Pfizer and Glaxo are not interested in fulfilling this demand because they can’t come up with a way of segmenting the demand by price, and would lose more profit by lowering the price paid by their current customers than they would gain from the additional customers.

    There doesn’t seem to be any evidence that there’s a demand for herbal erection tablets except in so far as ‘herbal’ is an indicator for ‘dodgy, may not work, but much cheaper than the stuff you get from the doctor’.

    Comes in flavoured gel sachets, they are *everywhere* in Thailand.

  3. Bit of pendantry. Risk of double dose. Our boy had excema and prescription for strong cortisone when a baby.
    Neither of us was happy, so my wife bought some Ghanaian gunk from the market, allegedly “herbal”.
    Guess what?

  4. bloke in france – “Neither of us was happy, so my wife bought some Ghanaian gunk from the market, allegedly [herbal]. Guess what?”
