As I have mentioned elsewhere on this site, I struggle between trying to keep myself locked-up to keep my hands off my dick, and still being able to have regular intercourse with my very vanilla (but coming along!) wife. At least for now, she still views sex as me being able to penetrate and cum inside of her. Due to hefting an extra 20-lbs., age, and blood pressure medication, getting a rock-hard erection when the wind blows is no longer possible. So at my latest check-up, I convinced the doc to write me a scrip for 20 doses of 20-mg Cialis tablets. As you know, this is an adventure that could only occur in the USA, thanks to the drug companies, insurance companies and the FDA. I go to Walgreens (a chain-store pharmacy) to fill my scrip - excited to experience the woodies of my youth again! Well, the price for the 20 tablets was $1,556.00 USD! I left it on the counter and walked away. I called the doc, and she agreed to write the scrip for Viagra, and she recommended trying Costco, as they would be cheaper. So I go to Costco, and get in line. The 1st issue is the beautiful 20-something woman at the cash register. Being brillliant, I ask, "Are you a pharmacist?" Lucky for me, the answer was no, and she directed me to a different counter, where I could talk with a middle-aged woman who is a pharmacist. Their price for the Cialis was ~$1,300.00. The same count of 100-mg Viagra (an equivalent dose) was $1,080.00. But she informed me that I could get a generic version of Viagra for ~$550.00. Woot. Then she made another recommendation to discuss with my physician: A bottle of 100-count, 20-mg drug named Sildenafil... I could take between 1 and 5 tablets for a dose equaling the original prescription, and the whole bottle costs $85.00! Does anyone have any experience with the Sildenafil? I don't know if the doc will go for it, but it's certainly more appealing than $78.00 per erection! Lastly, as I walked away, once again excited by the possibilities ahead of me, I glanced towards the beautiful, young cashier - and she was grinning ear-to-ear at me. Seems the customers had dried-up, and she was able to listen to the entire conversation! So much for not enjoying public humiliation! (If only she knew about the tiny, super-short cage under my blue jeans!) Thanks in advance for any advice or experience you may share!
