Viagra vs. Cialis – Which one do women prefer?



In general, it seems that women prefer their partner use Cialis.


When studied, women who are the partners of men given both tadalafil (Cialis) and sildenafil (Viagra) for ED, had a clear preference for Cialis. In a study of 100 heterosexual couples in stable relationships (J Sex Med 2008;5:1198–1207), the men were placed on a 12 week course of either Cialis or Viagra. Then, the men used the alternate for another 12 weeks. The female partners were asked which drug they preferred: “A total of 79.2% of the women preferred their partners’ use of tadalafil, while 15.6% preferred sildenafil.”

The reasons for their preferences were sought by interview. They concluded that “While the women’s reasons for preferring tadalafil emphasized relaxed, satisfying, longer-lasting sexual experiences, those preferring sildenafil focused on satisfaction and drug effectiveness for their partner.”
