The disorder from old age or from owning a Realdoll and thinking you're pornstar material?

I have a right to boner pills and my neighbor should have to pay for them.

I for one am sick and tired of Bayer trying to make money from the embarrassment those of us suffering pene praegrandibus suffer.

grokca: Profits are up!


As much as I dislike the products Bill Gates has championed, he is right about this:

"The malaria vaccine in humanist terms is the biggest need. But it gets virtually no funding. But if you are working on male baldness or other things you get an order of magnitude more research funding because of the voice in the marketplace than something like malaria."

More money goes to hardons because it's more profitable.  That's why we're so spiritually sick in the U.S. right now... not every thing that needs to be done or should be done will make a profit.

Cialis used to cost $12 per dose at the drugstore. They've been raising the price every six months. Now it costs $42 per dose. That's $250 to fill a prescription. Looks like every time they raise the price their total profits increase, because of the inelasticity of the market. So they're going to jack the price higher and higher and higher until profits reach equilibrium.

Viagra and Levitra are raising prices in lockstep. There's no affordable alternative. Rich people can buy erections. Poor people can't. It's not a life-or-death product, but certainly a quality of life product.

Then when the drugs reach the expiration of their patents, the companies that own them will still get to market the generics exclusively, at a discount of 20% off the previous market price. So the higher they can push the price now, the more they'll make after patent expiration.

I've seen this a couple times with some drugs. Can anyone smarter than me answer how that in any way shape or form does NOT go against the very idea of drug patent expiration in the first place?

So there's a drug for evangelical Christianity now?
