Viagra's famous little blue pill is getting some serious competition in Europe from a newcomer called Cialis. Nicknamed "Le Weekender" in France, Cialis helps men with erectile dysfunction have sex up to 36 hours after swallowing it. Viagra, on the other hand, lasts only about four hours. Other advantages: men can take Cialis even on a full stomach, then start getting that loving feeling in just half an hour—vs. up to an hour with Viagra. All we need now is a little pill that keeps women in the mood for days as well.

Availability: Pending FDA approval in the U.S.
