Perceptions of Sexuality withElderly PeopleRichard Galvez CHFD220The message of the cartoon is meant to portray how the elderly is not fully capable to understandwhat drugs they are taking and not reading for side effects or that the elderly always has to be on some type of drug to perform sexually. This cartoon focuses on the male perspective and the difficulty of getting an erection as you progress in age. Whether or not the cartoon is meant to shoot a bunch of subliminal messages, the wife received no benefits from him taking the wrong medication. I believe this cartoon conveys all three aspects of sexual development. Physiological, psychological, and social. Viagra has been linked to monarchs such as Hugh Hefner age 85, and Crystal Harris, age 25, announcing their engagement; Rupert Murdoch age 80 with kids in elementary school; the 74-year-old Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, and that 18-year-old party girl (NY Times, 2011). Viagra isn’t always for older men. This drug has been linked to younger men who experience erectile dysfunction because of physiological disorders. Regardless, Viagra has been prescribed to over 30 million men. For many men, it has been a wonder drug since given the green light for use by the FDA on March 27, 1998.
