My husband is very frugal. Normally, that is a good thing. At the grocery store, it's a very good thing. In the bedroom, not so much.
Here's the story.
Like many men (and I do mean *many*), Hubby relies on assistance from Viagra from time to time. This is not a problem. But when you combine Viagra ($10 per pill) and frugality, there is a problem.
To save money, Hubby cuts the pills, not in half, but in quarters. Apparently, rock hard sex is worth $2.50 to him, but not $10.
The issue is that a quarter pill doesn't always produce the desired results. In fact, the rate of "success" with a quarter pill is about the same as with no pill at all.
I've tried using logic. "Honey, four failed attempts with quarter pills actually costs $10. What if we have sex less and go crazy with a whole pill instead?"
Logic didn't work.
I've tried extra foreplay, giving it more time to work and making the whole event as hot as possible.
Extra foreplay didn't work.
I've tried fantasy, showing him naughty photos of Cara and talking him through a nasty three way scene.
Fantasy didn't work.
I've tried peer pressure mixed with shame, telling him that "Cara would want you to take the whole pill."
That didn't work, either.
Finally, last week I figured it out. When we went to bed, I took off all my clothes and cuddled up next to him. Then I handed him a $10 bill.
"What's this for?" he asked.
"I'd like to buy a $10 hard-on, please."
FYI - A $10 hard-on rocks!!!!
