When to Turn to Drugs
Men use erectile dysfunction pills, like Viagra, for a variety of reasons. These can also be an effective solution to performance anxiety because, for many men, one good sexual encounter goes a very long way toward restoring their confidence and quelling their trepidations. This isn't a perfect treatment, however. "The problem is that men become somewhat dependent on them and they become fearful when they're not available," says Ducharme. If you are considering this method for addressing performance anxiety, it's important to consider this risk as well.
