I took the pill right before the party because I knew I had to be ready since I went with my man to the party and me and him had already made plans to make love in the hot tub so I knew once we got there I would sneak up to my best friends bedroom with a hot tub on the balcony and make love so I locked the door behind me and got freshened up in the bathroom and then me and my man made love I loved that the viagra brought the spice back to my sex life

  6. Female Viagra is a medication used to improve sexual desire. This does not act like Viagra meaning this drug is used for low libido, not for body functioning (Erect Penis). There are 2 ways of taking this drug; A pill by mouth everyday or a shot in the belly or thigh 45 minutes before sex. Doctors recommend that the shot only be done up to 8 times per month. These drugs boost the activity of chemical messengers in your brain (neurotransmitters) which help you to feel aroused. You would take the pill form everyday even if your not going to have sex. It doesn’t affect the quality of sex it just makes the woman more ‘in the mood.’

  7. I wanted to have a good time at the party and be with the end crowd so to speak. It was a wild night and everyone was already having a good time. After getting a drink I realized that I was not as happy as all the others. I was going to find out why I was not as happy as them. One of the girls there handed me a pill and told me that would make me really happy. I was doubtful but willing to try anything at that point. So with a swig of the beer I washed the pill down not really expecting much. About an hour or so later I started to feel really happy as they said that I could. No one told me that I would not remember anything and would extremely question what had happened that night. And to be honest after I found out it was female Viagra I am glad that at the time I did not know what it was.

  8. I had a lot of sexual desire when i was a girl in college but the work stress came in and i didnt feel like having sex alll the time. I started to take this medication for females and wow all i can say is my sex drive is through the roof again

  9. I started taking the pill just before a dinner and cocktail party, and although I doubted whether it would work, it did! As soon as we got back to our flat, it was nothing less than erotic and stimulating to the say the least. 10/10 would recommend.

  10. Female Viagra has worked great for me! I love my boyfriend and we have been living together for over 20 years, but during that time we have both gained a lot of weight. I no longer find him sexy, and he no longer finds me sexy. I need to use female viagra in order to be sexually stimulated. Fortunately, it works! Now I take it with dinner and we have great sex afterwords thanks to this product.
