Ever wondered what the secret ingredient is behind Victoria Beckham’s bestselling perfume, “Invictus”? Instagra is the answer. Instagra is the new product from Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson. It’s a low-cost, alternative to Viagra and helps to enhance the potency of sex. According to TMZ, Pattinson is the first to market with such a product and is planning on selling it for $10 a bottle, rather than the usual $300 to $500 per unit price tag of Viagra. 

If you’re unfamiliar, Viagra was first approved for use in the United States in 1998. It was originally marketed as a treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) and is currently the gold standard for erectile dysfunction treatments. Side effects including nausea, stomach pain, and allergic reactions are relatively common. In 2012, more than 7 million prescriptions for Viagra were filled in the U.S. alone.

On the other hand, Instagra comes with a more positive outlook. According to the company’s official website, Instagra “is a lifestyle product for men who want to feel like they’re in control of their erections and able to enjoy sex without the worry of being unable to perform.”

Why Is Robert Pattinson Choosing To Go Down This Route?

It’s widely known that celebrity and lucrative product placement can help to bankroll a movie or TV show. However, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, and MTV reports that Instagra will have a prominent role in the upcoming movie, “The Walking Dead”, premiering this October. The network claims that the movie’s producers approached Pattinson about using his product for the zombie-themed series and the star decided to give it a go.

In an interview with Time Out magazine, Pattinson said, “I grew up with Game of Thrones, and that was the thing that first popped into my head: ‘What would happen if sex wasn’t for reproductive purposes? Would people still procreate? Could there still be wars if everyone just got it on with each other?’ That’s the fantasy. I liked that idea because, in reality, there are a lot of issues that prevent people from being able to have healthy sexual experiences. There are a lot of psychological disorders that get in the way, like anxiety and depression. If there’s a way that having control over your ejaculation could help with those issues, then why not? Why not explore that?”

MTV reports that while working on “The Walking Dead”, producers brainstormed ideas for ways to help their characters escape the undead. As a result, Instagra was born. The network claims that they approached Pattinson about using his product to help fuel escape mechanisms on the show. Apparently, the Scottish actor was initially hesitant about being associated with a medical product but eventually agreed to try it out. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Pattinson said, “I’m not saying that this drug is going to cure all ills of the human condition, but it could help with some things. And who knows? Maybe it could even be the key to creating healthier and happier relationships.”

Pattinson continued, “We’re always looking for ways to improve our sex lives, and this is a new technology that could potentially offer some assistance. I’m not going to pretend that having control over your ejaculation is something that everyone will want or need, but maybe it could be a healthier option than prescription drugs or other illegal substances. It’s difficult to say, but maybe it could be the start of a healthier lifestyle for some people.” 

How Does It Work?

According to the Los Angeles Times, Instagra works by suppressing an enzyme that helps to break down nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide is a chemical that naturally occurs in the body and helps to promote relaxation and increase blood flow to the genitals. When men are exposed to sexually stimulating situations, their nitric oxide levels rise which in turn makes them more likely to reach climax. However, if their nitric oxide levels are inhibited by drugs or other mechanisms, then these individuals will not be able to attain an erection or ejaculate during sex. In other words, if you consume Instagra, you’ll be able to keep your erections and ejaculate for longer without any sexual stimulation. According to the company’s website, Instagra is a chemical compound that functions by inhibiting phosphodiesterase 5, an enzyme that breaks down nitric oxide in the body. As a result, nitric oxide levels remain elevated which in turn allows men to maintain an erection for longer and helps to trigger ejaculation. In other words, Instagra helps to prolong climaxes and increases the pleasure men experience during sex.

What Forms Does It Come In?

Instagra is available in a variety of forms including a gel, a spray, and a tablet. While the gel and spray come in a handy travel size, the tablet forms are intended to be taken in the comfort of your home. On the company’s website, Instagra is described as a “fast-acting” chemical compound that offers help to “men with ED who are unable to maintain an erection or ejaculate during sexual activity.”

According to research literature, Instagra is a promising compound and early clinical trials have reported positive results. One small study presented at the 76th Scientific Sessions of the American Psychological Association observed that men who used the drug reported significant improvements in their overall quality of life as well as increased confidence and less anxiety before and during sex. Furthermore, the study noted that while the drug does not appear to be toxic, more extensive testing is needed to determine its long-term safety. While these are promising results, more research is needed to determine the correct dosage, safety, and effectiveness of the drug.

Can It Be Used With Other Drugs?

While scientists are still researching the use of Instagra and whether or not it can be used in combination with other substances, the early clinical trials suggest that it may not be appropriate for use with certain medications. According to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2011, participants who used the drug in combination with various other ED medications reported more side effects than those who used it on its own. However, the researchers noted that this may be because those taking the combination drug had more severe ED symptoms to begin with. In other words, if you have a history of heart conditions and take medications for those conditions, then it’s wise to avoid using certain substances, especially if you’re also taking medications for ED. It’s something to think about.

When Will It Be Available To Buy In Stores?

While you can get your hands on Instagra right now, it’s not yet approved for sale in retail stores and cannot be found in most countries. According to the company’s website, the drug is still undergoing safety testing and has not yet been approved for use in the U.S. The company has applied for FDA approval so that they can sell the drug here but have yet to receive a response from the agency. In other words, for now, you’ll have to look to online pharmacies and potentially break the law to get your hands on a bottle.

Will It Be Worth the Effort?

Taking a nitric oxide booster during sexual activity has the potential to be more practical for some men than others. If you have a problem with maintaining an erection or ejaculating during sex, then it’s definitely worth giving this a try. As the saying goes, “It’s better to have something that works than nothing at all.” While Viagra has been a life-saver for countless men, Instagra is offering those who need it a chance at leading a healthier lifestyle.
