User :   Hi. I am a 31 year old black male and I am in decent shape. My question is of a sexual nature. You see, over the past year or so, I have noticed that my male member has started to not get as hard as it used to when I'm sexually aroused. This is killing me, as figure it would most men my age. To my question though. I see that there are all these different e.d. pills out and I just wanted to know am I too young to take these type of pills such as cialis and viagra?
