Golden Root is a "herbal" one that I have used on many occassions.
I haven't ever used the actual Pfizer pharmaceutical Viagra, so I couldn't make a comparison.
Golden Root comes in capsule form and the instructions claim that it takes about an hour to work.
I found that it has worked every single time and the effects are a very strong erection that doesn't fade (but not every minute of the day) for up to 24 hours.
I don't believe that there is any effect on the volume of ejaculation, although there is some delaying effect.
Side effects are quite noticeable. I believe that nose tissue is very similar to penis histology, and the first thing you notice is very dry nasal passages, and sometimes a sore throat. I also get a flushed face and quite a considerable headache. I have heard that you can also get blurred vision - if this has ever happened, it wasn't serious.
Golden Root comes in 300mg and 500mg capsules - if you are going to take it, I would not use the 500mg again- it's just too strong and goes way past being useful.
On that subject - the instructions state that after taking a capsule, the effects should start in about an hour; which tallies with my experience. You can open the capsules, mix the contents with water and drink it (tastes very bad) and you will get effects in about 10-15 minutes. I'm not making recommendations of any kind - but I do this to take lower doses as I find the product a bit strong in general.
One thing that is worth pondering is how much of it is a placebo effect, and also the convenience issue. On the placebo - whilst I have no doubt that the thing really does work chemically, I find that within a minute or two of taking it, I'll have a very strong erection - even though it shouldn't have worked so soon.
On convenience - when do you actually take these things? If you were to go out on a hot date - it would be a big mistake to take it beforehand as you'd have to sit through dinner with a really uncomfortable trouser tent and the side effects would also ruin things. On the other hand - how do you time things so that you know you'll need it in an hour?
Very good info right here, and I agree with it all apart from the 500mg one, I've tried the 300mg and was hit and miss (I found drinking with a can of red bull completely ruined it, must have been the caffeine) but a 500mg pill with a glass of water and much fun was to be had!
but I don't really feel it will help in this case, you need to get to the root of the problem and that is mind control..take deep breaths during intercourse, relax and feel the energy flowing through your body, as you exhale it helps to kind of make a low manly growl/groan as it will give you something to focus on and will give your partner feedback that its feeling good for you. Be slow and gentle, y'know like after penetrating your partner maybe just lay there for a bit kissing to get used to the feeling..you'll find its getting past that mental stumbling 'block' during the act and once you're past the 'oh fuck I'm gonna cum' stage it will feel a lot more relaxed and enjoy it more - a technique I used is just to not think about it, try and put the whole idea of orgasm out of your mind and focus on the here and now (because orgasms aren't the be all and end all of sex), and as bad as this sounds, temporarily put something else in your head, my trigger was anything the colour red, I would focus on all things red in my imagination just to get over that initial stage and once I got past that I could actually enjoy the sex without having to distract myself, was about 5-10mins for me but YMMV
