Why does medication that lowers your blood pressure help ‘raise’ your johnson instead of medication that raises the pressure?



Viagra would be the key example.

In: Biology

A lot of drugs that lower blood pressure (including Viagra) are Vasodilators. This means that they cause your arteries to widen. This increases blood flow which lets more blood make its way to ‘your johnson’ so it can do its thing.

These drugs cause dilation of the periferal blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure, but also increases blood flow to the penis, which causes it to engorge.
