Mötley Crüe Icon Nikki Sixx’s Viagra Confession

Everything is doable in the world of rockstars, from partying very hard with substances and alcohol to getting away with any irrational decisions they made under the influence. While it seems scary for those uninvolved in the rock and roll lifestyle, trying out drugs and not caring about health problems or instant side effects of the chemicals, this has become a ‘normal’ phenomenon in the rock world.

Many talented musicians have been lost to drug overdose, or their lives have been spent many years in rehabilitation centers as they commonly regretted getting to know drugs in the first place. James Hetfield and Ozzy Osbourne have suffered from addiction most of their lives, and Jimi Hendrix is one of the most prominent fallen stars in this matter. However, not all drugs cause instant death, and Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx admitted to using Viagra for fun, but in the end, it was painful.

Why Did Nikki Sixx Use Viagra?

Sixx has always been a ladies’ man, and the number of women he has been with is uncountable. He has never been shy to admit his one-night stands, groupies, or having sex with his friends’ wives. In their Netflix biopic ‘The Dirt,’ his adventures with women were apparent, and in 2007 he talked about the time when this hobby of his got out of hand when he took some Viagra pills.

In September 2007, Nikki Sixx joined an interview with Blender magazine and talked about this painful time. He stated that he met a beautiful woman, and they felt something physical between them. She told Sixx that she would come up to his room to hang out and left. Excited, the Mötley Crüe bassist went to his friends and asked them for Viagra or Cialis pills that help men erect instantly and make the erection last for a long time. He took the pill, and the woman did not show up.

Here is what he stated about that night in the September 2007 issue of Blender:

“I have, on the road, in the last couple of years — Viagra and Cialis. That shit rocks. We were playing somewhere, and there was this beautiful model — she came to the show, and we had a great conversation and were hanging out. She was funny, witty — and we just felt something. So she says, ‘I’m gonna go do something, and I’ll come up to the room and meet you, and we’ll hang out, watch a movie.’ So I said, ‘Okay.’ And I go to someone, ‘Give me one of those Cialis things that you guys are taking.’ So I take it … and she never showed up. That was a painful night.

Those pills are usually taken by men who have physical problems being erected before having intercourse. In the prescription, it is not advised to take on if there isn’t such a physical problem. It is not very clear if Sixx had a problem or not, but he stated the experience as ‘that shit rocks.’
