The Race to Erection - Levitra vs Viagra

A new pill for erectile dysfunction will be on the market in September. The new pill is called Levitra. Levitra's makers say a major plus is that it works quickly. In clinical trials, some men using Levitra achieved an erection in 16 minutes. Viagra's maker has responded with studies showing half of men taking Viagra were able to have sex within 20 minutes.

Comment: No denying that 4 minutes is 4 minutes.
