    Got my promo e-mail today about the clear Progasm and the Rock Hard Weekend "enhancer."
    Would love to hear the feedback from anyone has has tried the RHW product.
    Is it a pill?
    How effective?
    Any side effects?
    Is this something you would take regularly like Viagra?
    How does it compare with the brand name ED meds out there?
    Look forward to hearing from someone - share your experience with those of us who will wait to purchase until we hear your reviews.
    Thanks!

    I ordered mine today, so I'll let you know how the pills work. I'm guessing they won't do much, but they're free with the order, so why not try them.

    From what I have experienced with Aneros to date, if they are promoting the pills (or whatever it is), my guess is that there is something to it. I will be interested to hear what you guys think of it.

    Have fun, life is short!
  • I did some research (thorough) on it this morning for a few hours. There are no complaints only praise, so I ordering soon. I might even get the clear progasm. I have a low sexual drive from suppressing my urges for so long (I guess), but I think that is why some people can progress with the Aneros faster than others. Also, if Aneros is sponsoring this product then it can't be all that bad. My guess is that the pills' effect can make the Aneros dance. I am going to do more research on this product before I order it. The funny thing is that researching it makes me sexually excited; imagine that.

    Too bad I’m in Japan right now I really would like to try this product right away.

    Bummer!

    The Prograsm Ice promo e-mail, with the tantalizing introduction to Rock Hard Weekend, states "Aneros Staff Approved." Okay, you lucky guys who got to try this out, let us hear from you.
    Thanks!

    Do the erections feel so hard, that you feel your going to cum "there and then". Like the aneros gives you?

    So is this a case of inaccurate labelling of a new product -- should it be titled "Rock Hard Week" instead of Rock Hard Weekend?
    Tell me more. . .

    i took one about 45 minutes ago. now, it could be a placebo effect. but... i have spent the last 15 minutes plastered face down on my couch grinding my pelvis and shaking and clenching my ass uncontrollably, driven by serious waves of pleasure.

    rock hard + rewiring = mucho

    post session:
    - very intense session
    - two ejaculations
    - feel a little flush, and possible slight pulse throb in forhead
    - slight heart elevation.

    ie, seems to be at least a vasodilator and a minor stimulant.

    Okay Darwin, Wow!!!!
    If you are physically able, and your vision is still able to focus,
    would you mind telling those of us who have yet to purchase what the ingredients of the
    Rock Hard Weekend are?
    And just out of curiousity, what color is this little pill?
    Thanks,
    Looking forward to more details from you about this.

    ingreds:
    horny goat weed (Epimedium 10%), Cordyceps Ext. 7%, White Willow Bark, Bombyx Mori Ext, Ginger Root, Oyster Est, Green Coffee bean Est, Vinpocentine, Schizandra Berry, Rehmannia Root, Vitamin B3, Korean Ginseng, Wolfberry Est

    Maltodextrin, Magnesium Stearate, Silicond Dioxide.

    Note the coffee been: caffeine?

    meanwhile:
    - slight headache
    - slight tummy sensitivity
    - feel slightly caffeinated

    would be happier if i felt none of above. we'll see if they overwhelm desire to try again.

    i would caution against those who consider this "natural." the only difference between supplements like this and pharmaceutical products is that the former might or might not have a history of human consumption and the latter are subjected to careful trials. but, they are both drugs, with possible side-effects, possibly known, possibly unknown.

  • I popped one 48-hours ago and it’s still working. I can’t say I’m any harder than usual, but I have definitely noticed it’s much easier to get it up. It’s like I’m 25 to 30-years younger, just the briefest thought of anything sexual in nature results in quite pleasant stirrings "down there." (A rise in the Levis). :twisted:

    Side effects, for me, are quite similar to Levitra’s, flushed skin and stuffy nose, and a sinus headache due to the stuffy nose.

    An awesome product, better than Levitra, I think. (And a whole lot cheaper)! :D

    would you say these pills do anything to boost libido or just the bonner?

    Its weird, the ingredients look familiar but I havent got a clue as to why they would last so much time in the system. Im guessing this product is spiked, or that most of the ingredients are there just to take your attention away from the main one or to act synergistically.

    I heard somewhere that cialis can be extracted from see food, maybe the oyster extract is key there. Anyways its in there best interest to keep it secret.

    Keep in mind that the potency of their trial versions might be different from their other ones.

    Im hopping on the train, I'll tell everyone here how it stands against my ED meds, Im esspecially curious how the side effects compare!!!

    18 hours later....

    it is in a capsule. i did not take it apart to see if maybe they are time-released, which would seem to be the only way to explain how they can get horny goat weed to last.

    as far as libido, sure seemed to boost mine in the initial few hours.

    it did not disrupt my sleep, which is good.

    still seem to have a very mild headache.

    i do not have ED. so, at this point, i would just as soon the effects of the pills would stop.

    in that regard, for me, a 4 hour pill would be much preferable!

    Hmmm, sounds like these RHW folk may have succeeded where others have failed.

    Remember guys... it may be helpful to others if you assess & report side effects in two categories:

    a. Those you experience from your early doses. ('Initial' reactions usually disappear after the first dozen or so doses.)

    b. Those that still appear after you've adapted to it. ('Regular' side effects that persist over the long term.)

    The 'Regular' side effects of erectile performance meds are difficult to assess since the majority of "occasional" users aren't on a regular dosing schedule. They never get through the "Initial" effect phase.

    It will be interesting to see whether RHW produces the 'morning after' hamstring and glut pain that's reported by some Levitra and Cialis users. And, how about CNS effects like the 'haloed' vision or color distortion that many users get from Viagra?

    If anyone opens one of these, please comment on whether the powder appears homogeneous or is made up of a variety of compounds.

    Hey Darwin -- I didn't get a clear read on your caffeine comment. If you're concerned, I certainly sympathize with your fears of that evil alkaloid. Just send the unused pills in a plain brown envelope.... I'll find a means to safely dispose of them! :roll: :D

    ok, at this point i'd call this:

    Head Ache Weekend

    can't be sure that it was the pill, but i have felt out of sorts since i took it, with a headache, a little tummy quesiness, and a little light-headed.

    at this point, if i could reverse time, i would NOT take the damn pill.

    surely: never again. for me, with no real ED or arousal problem to solve, a rush of horniness just ain't worth it.

    Interesting, now that I think about it I did experience a slight headache for a few hours. However, I didn't attribute it to the pill. I guess I should have. For the record then, I did experience what Darwin has said about the slight headache. It only lasted for me for a few hours but I thought it was because I used the computer all day (eye strain). A simple ice pack and wash cloth had me feeling fine. No stuffy nose or anything though. :?

    If this is the case of it causing headaches, stuffy nose, or just not feeling good then the benefits sure outweigh the hassle of all this. Sounds like Darwin is not the only one experiencing these symptoms. Maybe it's all those herbs??

    While I can say it made me feel like a 16 year old again, as far as sex drive and horniness is concerned, I need to stay 23. :P :lol: :wink: :twisted:

    I still loved this pill a lot over other supplements.

    Hey guys.

    Suggestion: Be patient and, unless they are intolerable, avoid throwing stones at side effects until you've got several weeks experience with a new med and have properly titrated. Assuming the manufacturer did a responsible job, most of those Initial side effects will vanish after a dozen doses or with proper titration. YMMV.

    Flip side: just use the meds/substances you need to keep you alive or enhance your quality of life.

    Being a good lab-rat is never easy!

    Thanks for the details on this Darwin! and everyone here!

    My ICE on the Rocks is on its way with these pills too. I am sensitive to caffeine and will have to be careful too. Do they give quantities of ingredients? Is it powders in a capsule or a tablet? I am wondering about trying half or less at first to test these out...

    Lets keep comparing notes here. Thanks again.

    How do you guys think this will react to a high dose of fish oil?? I take 2641 mg EPA and 2509 mg DHA daily is this of concern? I would like to try them at least once but wonder if there will be issues with the high dose of fish oil.

    P.S I am 5'6" 190lbs medium build i don't think i am fat. :oops:
  • I tried it yesterday. I had a rock hard erection (pun intended) and a slight headache.
    Any smokers? The headache was kind of like the ones you get if you smoke a little too much.
    Not debilitating, just mildly annoying. That really doesn't matter as long as you are getting some pussy.
    I stayed hard during a couple of pauses in the action as well.
    Today I woke up headache free. Took the dog out in jeans with no underwear. The fabric rubbing against my cock got me rock hard again. So it does seem to have staying power.
    I have had random hard ons today.

    No other problems than the slight headache. I am impressed.

    Darwin, I was hesitant after reading your post but the wife started making some moves so I thought what the hell. I hate you had such a dreadful time with it. We are all different and some will have problems and some won't.
    I was sweating it because I ordered 6 to justify the shipping. Between my experience and Darwin's I guess you will be rolling the dice. If it works for you like it did me, you'll want to keep a few around.

    Hi Carolinaguy,

    I agree, the headache is comparable to a "too much to smoke" headache.

    I'm taking the dogs for a walk in the morning, I'll be sure to leave the underwear behind this time. (Now why didn't I think of that)?

    And Carolinaguy, if I may ask, what's your age, and do you suffer from ED?

    Regards,

    I don't like this product. Yes, I was harder...even at the age of 23 there was a difference. But the morning after I took it, I had a headache so bad that it woke me up after only 4-5 hours of sleep. I haven't had a headache this bad in a while. And I was extremely dehydrated. I had to inhale about 5-6 glasses of water and some tylenol before the headache abated enough for me to go back at sleep...then I woke up at 1 pm...I hate that.

    The rest of the weekend wasn't as bad, but I still had an inkling of that headache. And I had erections more often than I would like (I have no need for one in public 8) )
  • No problem Slippery. I'm 52 and I would say if I have ED it is mild. I have no problem getting erections. The quality of erections sometimes isn't as firm as they used to be. Things don't get there as quick sometimes as well.
    At the end of day two I performed with a very,very hard cock as well. I woke up this morning with a very hard cock on day 3. I make note of that because it wasn't the usual morning wood. It was stone hard. So not my usual in the past few years.
    I should also mention this. They claim you can have alcohol with this RHW pill. They caution against alcohol with Viagra, Cialis and other ED pills.
    I had about 3 pretty stiff Vodka and OJ's before I took the RHW on Sat.
    I had about 6 beers over the course of the day Sun. From 1p.m. - 9p.m.
    So that claim seems to be true.
    Maybe the drinks before counteracted things in a way that minimized the headache I don't know.
    A depressant vs a stimulate.
    I guess it ultimately depends on your individual body and system whether you like it or not.
    But in my case, I'm sold. All the claims are very true in my case anyway.
    I could pull a threesome and wear them both out with this stuff. LOL

    Hi Guys, :)

    While this is nothing I'd be all that interested in trying. It's because of the caffeine in it. I keep caffeine out of my diet as I am very sensitive to it. The question occurred to me...
    Do any of you that have tried the rock hard pill think that there is some worthwhile application to be used in conjunction with an Aneros session? Or was this not the intended use for it? Thanks.

    In looking at those ingredients, I would also bet this product is a diuretic which might explain the headaches if you aren't well hydrated.

    Has anyone tried RockHard and a couple of advil to see if it takes the edge off. Its gotta help, right?

    Hey, at least its better than seeing blue like with Viagra.

    I'm one to get very bad headaches so not too sure if it would be worth it for me to try this product. I'm the king of full day hangovers the day after drinking as well. I too stay away from caffeine.
    But... I'm always a sucker for trying something new so may buy the one pill with free shipping just to try it out.
    Love_is brought up a good question though. Has anybody tried to do aneros sessions while using the pill and if so what quality of sessions have you had?
  • To Love_Is: I personally do not think it would be particularly useful with an Aneros session.
    I am hands off on my cock during sessions. I don't think it matters whether or not you get an erection during sessions as well.

    If it adds to your excitement level to be hard during a session then it may add something.
    You would probably just be compelled to end with a T though.

    it is very possible that there might be an undisclosed chemical inside this formula. The ingredients cerainly dont explain why it works well and for that time frame. My guess is a not yet known cialis analouge and that the other ingredients present are there to support effect and absorption.

    The headaches are very probably not related to the caffeine content of the product! And ver much related to the presence of a pdh5 like action similar to that of viagra, levitra and cialis.

    In any case, when I try it I'll let you guys know how it compares as Ive used v, l and c. If it can be taken with food, lasts that long and has less side effects its something definitively worth it. Maybe it would be a good idea for them to come up with a formula that has a shorter time frame of effectiveness for people like darwin.

    Ok since no one replied about my intake of fish oil with this i decided to take 3 days off the fish oil and i tried this product.

    1. I got a feeling of blood flowing down there about 45 minutes after taking it.
    2. I had almost uncontrollable erections the slightest moves caused me to get hard.
    3. I usually can get it up pretty quick with manual stimulation but this product gave my penis a mind of its own as mentioned almost uncontrollable erections.
    4. I can honestly say i was a little harder than normal but not by much i am normally very hard 28 years old normal kegel exerciser.
    5. I noticed my heart rate notably increased not good imo.
    6. I had a very bad sinus congestion and a headache that increased 5x right after orgasm not good.
    7. My throat was extremely dry as i try to swallow my own saliva i drink over 68 ounces of water daily so i am not dehydrated.
    8. I have and still have red eyes the whites in my eyes are red like they are on someone who smoked weed really not good i work at a jail this better clear up.
    9. I feel fatigue today and still a slight headache basically it ruined my day today.
    10. I might never use this again too many issues and the orgasm was not very good due to headache increase at orgasm.

    I took this on sunday after noon and its 14 hours later sitting with a lightheaded feeling headache and red eyes not good imo.

    One positive is it increased my aneros session sensations a little for the better but of course the orgasm was not great oh well live and learn.

    Ok edited in this last part 17 hours later my headache is still bad so much i tried to eat and could not finish my meal as i cant get my mind off the headache and i went to run an errand and my headache seemed worse out in the summer sun. I notice this stuff doesn't seem to be working too much anymore because i tried to get hard here and i cant very easily so much for 72 hours maybe its the constant headache causing me not to be able to get hard i am home alone don't feel good enough for an aneros session sigh.

    P.S At least my red eyes have gone away now.

    OK, guys I did some checking on the potential drug interactions for the ingredients in “Rock Hard Weekend”. For the most part there is only a moderate interaction potential for everything except the Green Coffee bean extract and the White Willow Bark. If you are taking any blood thinner medications, this product will increase that effect. If you are taking any stimulants, this product will likely increase those effects as well. This is a long post with some specifics for those of you on various medications. Since this product is intended for occassional use only the chances of having a moderate negative interaction are pretty low. Those of you who are on blood thinning meds. could probably just adjust your dose down a bit for a day or two. Avoiding caffeine or other stimulants prior to and during use of this product may help alleviate the headache issue. Taking aspirin or ibuprofen for headache may not be a good idea.

    Sorry for the long post, I did want to be brief but as thorough as I could. Here’s what I found :

    Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) – EPIMEDIUM
    Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) <<interacts with>> EPIMEDIUM
    Interaction Rating = Moderate Be cautious with this combination.

    OK, guys I did some checking on the potential drug interactions for the ingredients in “Rock Hard Weekend”. For the most part there is only a moderate interaction potential for everything except the Green Coffee bean extract and the White Willow Bark. If you are taking any blood thinner medications, this product will increase that effect.



    Ok so i hear and seem to know that fish oil thins blood could this be the reason i have a hard time with this product? I do not want to risk anything over this if that's the case i will gladly ship out my last 5 pills to anyone who wants to try them maybe send one here one there who knows.

    Last edit my headache finally gone 22 hours from the time i took the pill. :evil:

    WELL RUMEL!

    Thanks very much for this information! Exceptionally helpful because of the comprehensive detail! This means RHW, which was a possible alternative to Viagra, is off the table for me too. I have been given V by my doc, but have yet to try it due to wanting to avoid the side effects, which I am prone to having with many drugs.

    On the other hand, ICE IS the focus of this order!!! Had the best Helix session (GMO -Super-T) ever today! :D – far more mobility and action than ever before with Helix – :D , in anticipation of ICE, IMHO! :lol:

    And back on the other other hand; the Super-O and all the Beyond... bliss and energies all work flaccid even, so are we trapped in an old and now more optional paradigm anyway focusing on male member enhancement like so much redickulous spam...?... :roll:

    the glorious consolation/exultation of the energies for all

    ...snip ...Love_is brought up a good question though. Has anybody tried to do aneros sessions while using the pill and if so what quality of sessions have you had?



    Bottom line -- I don't see that it would improve the quality. OTOH, I see a decrement.

    Some anecdotal lab-rat info from several weeks ago:

    RHW wasn't available when the following was done but I think this answers the question. Perhaps someone else has done this but I couldn't find it with a simple |search| of the forums and WiKi.

    I've wondered why most of us are flaccid during an Aneros session. (I've since read that it's normal to go flaccid when penetrated.) At the time, my concern was on what the p-tab might be doing to the pudendal bundle. (i.e. either an arterial constriction or a nerve block.) If there was something going on there, fear of permanent injury would have been a show stopper for me.

    So, on four separate Helix sessions I did four timed intakes of PDE5 inhibitors (two of Viagra & two of Levitra) to look at possible nerve block. There were no surprises and I think I got my normal nitric oxide release in each instance regardless of whether I started PDE5 suppression before insertion or afterwards. I think I pretty well ruled out any nerve block from the p-tab. What I did find though was that once erect, ano-rectal and prostate stim kept my brain sending sigs to my penis that kept me erect for the whole session. (L or V worked normally and NO was being generated for over 90 minutes.)

    I've close to 10 years experience with occasional PDE5 inhibitors (both L and V) and three years experience with regular dosing. I agree with others in this thread -- no gain to be made from their use unless a runny nose is somehow a plus. (but, I've never been into pre-cum)

    Then, did a pair of pge1 injections (one was atropine boosted), both well into two separate Helix sessions. This was done to check for an arterial constriction. One was with p-tab bare and one with p-tab cushioned with a med-dropper bulb. Normal/solid arterial pulse in my penis and normal time to erection (I'm not the fastest horse out of the gate on these tests but am pretty uniform from shot to shot.)

    The pge1 injection produces a very benign, hard, lasting erection with no side effects. Aside from the additional pressure of the crus portion of the penis against the PC muscle I see no benefit of erecting for an Aneros session. The engorgement of the penis was a focus issue for me (a heavily wired guy) and would have prevented a dry-O if I had been capable when I did these tests. (First dry-O was still a couple of weeks away.)

    Bottom line.... For guys who aren't re-wired, it's just an annoyance that breaks focus.

    Thank you too NuBe09!

    Your research, testing and observations are also very helpful. I had forgotten the injection mode and your mention of atropine, given my medical history, really caught my attention. I will look into this option.

    While erection matters less and less in our practice, and I can still get there, it would be nice on occasion to have the sustainable full hard, which the beta-blocker I am on tends to render brief to non-existent.

    I understand the limitation you speak of and the potential for pointlessness.

    Thanks again!

    How do you guys think this will react to a high dose of fish oil?? I take 2641 mg EPA and 2509 mg DHA daily is this of concern? I would like to try them at least once but wonder if there will be issues with the high dose of fish oil.

    P.S I am 5'6" 190lbs medium build i don't think i am fat. :oops:



    Do NOT take this product if you are taking high dose fish oil. There could be a drug interaction between the fish oil and the horny goat weed, they both act as blood thinners.

    As stated on my last 2 post i did take one even after 3 days off fish oil i got pretty bad head ache. So i might as well get rid of the RHW.

    So my free RHW pill is still sitting in my desk drawer. I wanted to bump this thread to see if anyone else has actually tried the pill and what the results were. Any comparisons to prescription ED drugs would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
