Thanks for sharing your experience with such a touchy topic (and great storytelling as usual).
Just curious, how would you have reacted if it had been your girlfriend who offered you Viagra? Would that have increased your insecurities or helped you to overcome them? Also, did you consider seeing a doctor when you realized it was a problem or did it take convincing by a peer?
(Asking for personal reasons — I’m still doing the “it’s ok" thing, but since the problem has been going on for some time now, it’s really not).
