Treating erectile dysfunction doesn’t have to be hard.
When my boyfriend first started experiencing the symptoms, he was worried that we were heading down a road that would take multiple uncomfortable doctor’s visits, days of online research, and even possibly months of experimenting with different treatment options.
And while we did do some serious online research, I’m happy to report that we found the perfect solution on the first try.
Thankfully, Hello Cake’s ED meds ticked all the boxes: fast-acting (they work in as little as 15 minutes!), no trips to the doctor, and no uncomfortable pumps or injections.
Erectile Dysfunction (commonly known as ED) is characterized by difficulty obtaining or maintaining an erection for satisfying masturbation or sexual intercourse. Studies estimate that about 52% of people with penisesexperience ED at some point in their lives. While the risk of experiencing ED increases with age, it can happen to people 20 all the way to 100. This isn’t something to be taken lightly – it can happen to anyone, at any time, for any number of reasons.
For us, ED came on totally out of the blue. My boyfriend’s 31; ED was something he joked about having when he was old and gray, not something we imagined dealing with now. What started as him struggling to get hard a few times sort of spiraled as he got more and more stressed about it and his confidence in the bedroom started falling. And then I started to lose confidence, too – was it me? Was something wrong? Once our sex life seemed like it was in trouble, it was hard for it not to affect our relationship in general.
So, we sat down and talked about it. When I brought up ED meds for the first time he was… not excited. Not about the meds themselves, but more about everything that came with them. He told me that awkward doctor visits and the potential for other treatments like injections or penis pumps had been keeping him away from exploring medication entirely. We started looking around online for a pain-free solution, and I asked if he was ok with me sharing our journey so we could help other people who might be in the same situation.
After doing extensive research, we found HelloCake.com – a sexual wellness company whose goal is to simply help the world have more fun sex. I don’t know about you, but my boyfriend and I could definitely get behind that! With a focus on high-quality products, they draw inspiration from both individuals and couples, so that everyone can have the sexual experience they deserve and desire.
More specific to our case though, Hello Cake Meds are from a compound pharmacy that combines both Sildenafil AND Tadalafil. (For the unfamiliar, those two ingredients are more commonly know as Cialis and Viagra. When Sildenafil is taken as a dissolvable, it’s faster acting than in pill form). Hello Cake ED Meds aren’t just one or the other — they are both, which we loved.
When we started looking for ways to help deal with Erectile Dysfunction my boyfriend had a few specific needs:
It’s gotta WORK
It’s gotta work fast
And of course, it’s gotta keep working (aka last a long time)
If it’s not doing all of that, then what’s the point? Our sex life is often more on the spontaneous side. Sure, sometimes we’ll have a lil’ rendezvous planned for the evening (plans can be sexy!), but more often than not, we find ourselves in the moment as it’s actually happening. Having to wait an hour for ED meds to take effect would be a buzzkill, to say the least.
Two things we both immediately loved about Hello Cake’s medication: it typically takes around 15 minutes to kick in, and it could continue to work for up to 24 hours. That could mean a nice little round 2 (or 3, or 4) AND a before-work quickie.
The whole ordering process was super easy and we were done in less than 5 minutes. Then less than a week later, the meds showed up at our door. It is a little more expensive than hims and Roman, but our dose had more than twice the active ingredients that made it WORK.
One thing we loved about Hello Cake is that they understand how essential their ED meds are for the people that take them. Nobody wants to pass on getting hot and heavy with their partner because their meds are too pricey, and Hello Cake gets that.
Thankfully, they’ve set it up so that you can save by ordering in bulk and on your first try, so you can get in for 10% off and then save a full 30% once you know you love ‘em. And when you break down the actual amount of active ingredients in their pills vs their competitors, you really start seeing how much of a deal you’re getting.
You can take a portion of the pill to modulate your dose
Reorder as necessary through Cake’s secure portal
Cost per pill is low relative to the amount of active ingredients
Prescription-only; you can’t get these over the counter
There are some potential health risks, but you’ll be screened by a doctor to ensure that your medical history doesn’t disqualify you
So, that night we put them to the test, and…
I was honestly a little worried that adding ED meds to the mix might make sex feel more clinical and less fun. But weirdly, the meds arriving actually made us excited for sex again. We were, like, giddy with excitement. I could barely wait for him to pop them under his tongue. While they dissolved, we messed around for maybe 10-15 minutes, and then the meds kicked in…
All I can say is, Hello Cake delivered on all fronts. Between dealing with ED and researching all our options, it had been several weeks since we’d last had sex. We were ready. Before we knew it, our clothes were in a pile and we were going at it like we hadn’t seen each other in years. And while the first round didn’t last very long (it had been a while, after all!), we were in for a nice surprise not much later when he was ready for round 2. And again the next morning. And the next night…
