MEET ERIC & ARDEN STONE
We hear from hundreds of people about how Rugiet Ready has made a meaningful difference in their lives. US veteran, Eric Stone, 51, has been one of our most vocal members on social media since the early days of Rugiet Health. His wife, Arden, runs her own non-profit out of Houston, TX.
Earlier this year, we extended an invitation to Eric and Arden, to come to our headquarters in ATX for a Q&A with the Rugiet Health team.
It was a truly special experience to hear from them. Not just because Rugiet Ready simply worked, but because it had resounding effects on their relationship. See how:
Q: What brought you to Rugiet Ready?
Eric: Well, I guess two years ago I was in Cuba and took a vacation to come home and stayed over there about 8 months on a project at Guantanamo Bay, and our first night together I had an immediate problem that hadn’t arisen before. And it wasn’t that I couldn’t perform, it’s that I couldn’t finish performing.
I had tried Hims prior to that but at some point, I realized that it wasn’t strong enough. They upped it to 3 pills in a packet, and so it was kind of inconvenient. It just, in my opinion, didn’t work very well. I tried Roman… I tried them all.
I saw a Rugiet ad on Facebook with someone my age talking about how it worked for them and I thought it seemed pretty convincing so I ordered it.
Q: What were some of the challenges you were facing in your relationship before Rugiet Ready?
Eric: With Hims and Roman I had about a 4-to-5-hour window after I took it. You had to wait an hour and you know, those are all draw backs for me.
Arden: He would say stuff like, “I’ve got 4 or 5 hours. Stop washing dishes”. Literally, that’s what it’s like. You’re making dinner and he’s like, “well, I took this stuff. We got a time limit”. Like nobody wants to be rushed into that, or, you know, have that time schedule of a couple trying to get pregnant or something.
Eric: And there were times when she would say, “what am I doing wrong? Is it me? Or you’re not attracted to me?” And so, at that point, I had to come out and say, you know, I think it’s my problem. When you go into fights because I’d tell her I’m ready to go, I’m ready to do this, and she says she doesn’t have time, that lead me to thinking, well, she doesn’t care about me.
Q: How would you describe your experience with Rugiet Ready?
Eric: You guys, I just want to congratulate you on what I think is a miracle product. It’s the best I’ve tried. I really don’t feel like I need to go anywhere else. I hope your product is around for years to come.
I think the sign-up process and the questionnaire and everything was pretty simple. I can’t think how you guys could have made it any easier.
With your formulation, I’ve found that it takes stimulation from the other party or whatever for the medicine to start working. You’re ready to go, but you’re not showing everyone you’re ready to go. Also, how do I say this? The intensity of my erection has been the best on this medicine, right?
Eric: With Rugiet I can still finish.
Q: How has your relationship improved with Rugiet Ready?
Eric: She enjoys it a lot more. So, we kind of opened up. We’ve been married 25 years, so it’s helped a lot with that transaction type thing. She’s now more open to different positions. I think that’s number one, she enjoys the quality of the erection.
Arden: Because I think the stress is gone. I’m not worried that he’s going to like, you know, come in there while I’m cooking dinner, and be like “right now.” I feel like it’s kind of like we’ve gone back to normalcy where sex isn’t a chore anymore.
Eric: That goes back to taking one and then having the 36-hour window because I know that’s my window. So yeah, we can be spontaneous. Like I’m ready when she is.
Q: How do you talk about things like sexual difficulties with your peers on the [oil] rig?
Eric: I brought it up with one of my friends who I didn’t know have any E.D. problems and it was just to tell him about how well the product was working for me. We weren’t even really talking about sex specifically or anything. It was like, “Let me tell you, this has changed my life.”
Come to find out, he was looking for something. It was just a conversation that happened because the product was working well for me and I felt like telling someone about it. Come to find out, he was having the same issue and he immediately got on there and became a customer.
Q: How do you talk about sexual difficulties with your friends?
Arden: So, like usually the women I’m talking to is like close friends of mine or, like my sister, my brother in-law has had issues and so I like to talk to my sister about it. I tell my friends that you get to an age where you just don’t care [about the stigma]. I don’t care what people think. I just don’t have time anymore. I mean, you know, we’ve got 5 kids. He’s been to war and back. Like you kind of have to think about all those things and what that takes on a body. And I think that’s opening up that conversation. I tell my friends; this is what works for us.
Q: What advice would you give to the folks out there with similar struggles as you?
Eric: I think it was I was coming to terms with the fact that I might have [ED] and there’s a stigma about it, you know? Because I’m not that old. I’m 51. I thought this was something like for maybe when I’m 60 or something like that. But it was hard to have a conversation because it’s you know, manhood, and all those things that now you’re going to have to take medicine for.
Well, now I look at it as; well, you got some people taking medication for depression or diabetes. Everybody’s got something, you know, and the fact that I’m able to look out for my sexual health and make sure our marriage stays strong because it’s part of it. I’m kind of proud of the fact that I finally took that step, you know, and we finally had a discussion of; hey, I’m taking medicine. It caused a lot less stress for her and me.
Getting the secret out was a lot less stress for me.
Arden: There’s nothing wrong, you know, it’s like there’s nothing wrong with someone because they have [ED] it doesn’t make them less of a person or less of a man. Rugiet has been the big game changer for us, so we recommend it to others.
