    My prescription is for 20mg pills. Would 5mg really do the trick? seems kind low.

    Start cialis with 10 mg, i.e. 1/2 a tablet.

    Take it at least 2 hrs in advance. If you can't get it up at the start of the evening, wait a while and don't stress out about it. Try again an hour or two latter, and then try again after another wait.

    If you don't have any success, try again. If it's the next day, use the other 10 mg half. If the occasion is later on (like the next weekend) then use a full tablet (20 mg).

    Once you get a feel for how things work for you, try splitting in thirds, a dose of 5 - 7 mg depending on how good your splitting is. You can also decrease the wait time from 2 hrs down to maybe 40 minutes.

    (Personally, I like 5 mg Friday before I cut off work, with a second 5 mg Saturday afternoon. It's still going strong for Monday morning wake-up sex.)

    Do get a pill splitter, as the tablets are pear shaped. You need to be able to position the blade accurately and keep it on track as you cut the tablet.


    PS: There's another thread going on abut this. I apologize for not taking the discussion over there, thus contributing to the hijack of your thread.

    Hey. Number one, know that you are NOT alone. There are few things you can try. Number one, I think relaxing and getting to know the woman would be really beneficial. Here are some tips we have heard of that helped others.
    1. Getting plenty of rest the night before play/napping earlier in the day.
    2. Keeping alcohol to a severe minimum.
    3. Spending time with the lady flirting so you can relax around her.
    4. Dancing with the lady. This is a good way to begin touching her body.
    5. Starting play with your own wife. Alot of people do this. It helps assure you that your wife is okay with things, is having fun too..this allows you to relax.
    6. Put on some porn. Always good for getting the juices flowing.
    7. Separate room play (if this is something you all agree to)

    8. HAVE FUN, HAVE FUN, HAVE FUN!!

    This is FUN. Don't apply MORE pressure. Just relax and have this attitude: Even if things don't work out you KNOW your wife is hot and sexy, sensual and erotic...so either way you win!!!!

    Best of luck to you, Shelly
    Merry Christmas and a Ho Ho Ho

    All very good stuff, and speaking in a number of ways to the general idea of time. Good post, Shelly. The more time you have, the more time you spend, relaxed time, with your new partner, the less rushed or pressured that you might feel.

    I have learned this through a number of experiences. Shelly talks about flirting and dancing and touching. All of that is very good and very important, supporting a natural arousal process. If you know that you won't be rushed, then all can be spontaneous. Erections will just emerge, if you get my meaning.

    wow! I just thought i would follow up on my original post. I finally got a chance to try cialis after a swingers party this past weekend. WHOA..lol!
    You could tell a difference right away. First of all let me tell you the time table on everything:
    1)7pm at dinner I took 1 pill, 20mg cialis
    2) Arrived at the party at 8pm and had 1 beer and that was it the whole night. I took peoples advice and cut back the drinking
    3)got back to the room at 1am with a couple

    now, as soon as i got back to the room, i went in the bathroom to kinda freshin up and noticed something right away. Usually when I am about ready to do something like this, I get nervous and my cock gets really small..lol. Well, this time it was semi-hard and had a different feeling to it. Its hard to explain but it kinda had that feeling like if someone started to touch it once it would be ready to go.
    Well, it turned out if was! I had no problems at all and it was a great experience with the other couple. Now, with that being said, I would like to ask for some advice again from all the great people on this website. The cialis did get me one Major side effect. a BAD HEADACHE for about 24 hrs. It was bearable but still, very annoying. Is this anything I can do about this? Maybe cut the dosage back or maybe try another ED drug? I mean, for me its probably a confidence thing anyways and I might not need it anymore but Id like to keep my options open cause wow.. it got SOO HARD. it was awesome..lol
    So..can anyone offer me any advice on the headache issue?

    Yes, less dose, less chance of headache. Also less benefit.

    My experience with Viagra and Cialis is that the more you use them the less side effects you have. Another thing you can do is to take ibuprofen at the same time you take the Cialis. That works very well, too.

    Also, if you want to try a reduced dose, don't buy them; get a pill splitter at your local drug store and cut them, or even just use a sharp knife. You will save money.

    hmm..less effect huh. Not sure I want that. I think the cialis really did its job, I just wanna cut down on the side effects. Maybe the Advil might not be a bad idea. Thanks for the Tip!
    Anyone have any experiences with viagra and its side effects? Maybe that might be something i should try instead?

    My experience with Viagra is that it has more punch; a more dramatic effect, somewhat quicker, though it does not last nearly as long, obviously. Initially, I got the blue vision thing with Viagra, but it subsided over time as I took it, and now it causes not blue vision. It, too, causes headaches. Once again, take ibuprofen when you take the pill and it seems to prevent that.

    Personally, even if I got a headache, I much preferred the enhanced performance of my cock and found it a trade-off I was quite willing to make.

    I can have erections without these drugs, but with them, they come more easily, are harder, and last longer. Better living enhanced sexuality through chemistry.

    I've usually not had a problem, but early on I sometimes didn't get real hard with couples. With single guys in MFM I was always real hard. I think I had some apprehension about doing another female like it was cheating, even if my wife was right there. Maybe not cheating exactly, more like taking your focus away from your wife. That's just not a natural thing to do eh? You might try doing MFM or FMF (especially if she is bi) and see if you are are more comfortable with that.

    On an empty stomach, meaning no heavy food or big meal, it begins to work in 45 minutes to one hour. If you have had a big meal [which is does not fit well with sex anyway...] it could be more like two 90 minutes to two hours.

    It has greatest effect for about 2-3 hours, and then tapers, but for me still offers readily apparent effect even the next morning for wake-up play.

    From my experience, due to 5+ years on blood pressure pills which have caused intermittent but annoying "power failures", I've used 2 of the 3 E.D. pills now on the market. Both have taken care of of any performance issues. Here's my review:

    1) Viagra kicks in in about 45 minutes, keeps me going like an 18 year-old for about 3 hrs afterward. I retain some enhancement for about 12 hours after first taking the pill. At home, I cut the 50mg pill in half to stretch out my supply. (I don't dare take the 100mg pill for fear that I'll be in the ER trying to get rid of a 6 hour long hard-on, ditto for taking 2 Viagra's to keep going more than 4 hours). I haven't noticed any less effectiveness using a half pill. I pop a Viagra when woody is not being cooperative and then use my oral skills to fill in the time it takes to kick in. :-)

    2) Cialis 20mg works great for 42-48 hours for me. Again, it makes me feel 18 again. I'll use it when I think the "fun" part of the party may not start right away and that it will last well into the early morning {and maybe beyond :-) } I usually take a Cialis an hour before going to the club so by the time I get there and get settled in, I'm raring to go all weekend :-)

    3) Someday, maybe I'll try Levitra and send you all a report.

    4) Yep, all of you are right; minimize the alcohol, it's nothing but trouble and don't eat for 4 hours before "partying". Both have a detrimental effect on Mr Woody, pills or no pills

    Meanwhile, does anyone on this forum know when Pfizer's patent on Viagra going to expire so half-priced generics can come onto the market ? I do pay full price for these pills at my local drugstore, despite being easily able to get them on mail-order because I don't trust what they would send me. I also do try to minimize the use of these pills, being afraid that I'll build-up a tolerance to them and they won't be as effective as the years go on.

    We completely understand how you're feeling. In our first few swinging experiences My hubby had some performance anxiety. He was nervous and had drank a few drinks. He also didnt feel 100% comfortable with the couples at first. He tried Viagra and that helped a lot. Even though he was anxious if he was turned on he got hard.

    So i suggest three things.

    First no drinks. maybe one to help relax but no more then that.

    Second no playing unless you are 100% comfortable with the couple. Any inkling of unsureness can ruin the mood for you.

    Thirdly try some form of the blue pill. My hubby uses Viagra and it works great when he needs it. There are coupons online and free samples you can get so they arent quite so expensive. He has a small pill case on his key chain to carry it with him if he thinks he might need it.

    Also you might want to go to a few socials or parties even if you dont play just to help you feel less anxious

    good luck!

    Ed here-- Mindset is everything. I have always felt having an attitude that I'm going to have fun and be playful is the best aphrodisiac and male enhancement drug I can take. If my head is wrapped up in too much else, I don't think I'd 'perform' as well.

    I've never seen anything make a woman more willing to have sex than smile and laughter. And believe me, when it comes to sex, Susan is very willing with me .
    So, there you go.
