More on painful boners... Our blogger buddy Xersex pointed out in a comment the other day that he'd experienced one so hard he could've "cut diamonds." But there was a downside: he couldn't really feel it; as if it had sort-of gone numb.
Prior to attending a group meeting, though he's young and quite virile, he took Viagra. That is the downside of taking boner pills when you don't actually need them.
The other downside is that, for any guy who can easily get his cock hard, it can be quite dangerous. Worst case scenarios: It can dangerously alter the blood pressure, or cause a heart attack; both of which could cause death. Then there is the damage that can be done to your dick.
Just as keeping the wrong type of cock ring in place for too long,
Viagra causes the blood to stay in the cavernosum, the trapped blood can turn to sludge. Doctors shove a syringe in to drain the blood.
The lack of blood-oxygen kills the tissue. The result of that could be forever losing the ability to get a boner (even with a cock ring).
You'd still have the ability to piss.
But, that's the best outcome. The worst outcome requires surgery to remove the dead tissue - which means losing a hunk of your cock. (I'll save you the sight of those gruesome pictures.) If you love your cock and want to be able to enjoy it for the rest of your life
Don't mess with things that can damage your dicks!!!
