Condom sales in Georgia on the Rise

Data from the National Statistics Office of Georgia has highlighted a 29% increase in the total amount of investment in the import of condoms from $350,000 to $450,000 in 2010 from the same period in 2009.

Viagra, the erectile dysfunction treatment drug, has also seen an increase in sales. GPC, a pharmaceutical company in Georgia, says that it sells on average 200 packets of Viagra a month. However, the company that produces Viagra, Pfizer, will be facing competition from the Georgian company GM Pharmaceuticals who have recently started to produce a generic version of Viagra, simply called ‘Sildenafil’. Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient in Viagra.

The Sexologist Gia Beorishvili says that the number of his male patients is permanently increasing although, he still believes that the prevailaing Georgian mentality is to avoid trips to the sexologist in order to seek help with their sex life. However, compared to 10-15 ago the use of Sildenafil Citrate is much greater, presumably as more people become better educated about the treatments available for erectile dysfunction.

Beorishvili adds, “The experience showed that Viagra is a very efficient medicine. That’s why I regularly prescribe Viagra or other substitute medicines for treatment of my patients who have the need for it.”
