"We saw an increase in sexually satisfying events, an increase in desire and a decrease in distress. When we look at this against a backdrop of a common and distressing problem that affects 1 of 10 women and for which no treatment exists, well, we are feeling very positive," said Michael Sand, director of clinical research for Boehringer Ingelheim, which originally developed the drug, flibanserin, in the 1990s as an antidepressant.

This is how it always starts. First there's the promising wonder drug that promises to end female sexual dysfunction. Next thing you know, society is being ripped apart by packs of insane, blood-thirsty nymphomaniacs.

I thought alcohol and roofies were the wonder drug to solve female sexual disinterest. Why are they still looking?

I love how drug co's can turn anything into a 'medical condition' and all of a sudden they have a whole new market to push their pills on. And all the sheeple willingly comply. Retarded.

cure for 90% of these so-called medical conditions: diet and exercise

i wouldn't worry too much since this condition seems to go away when one moves to a retirement community.

or so the internet leads me to believe.

It's called MDMA. It's been on the "market" for years.

You could always openly discuss desires and feelings with your hubby and help him get better rather than expecting him to magically become the wunderkind of sexual prowess and pleasure without any input, because lack of education does so much for improving skills...

Have you ever had sex with a man that just laid there without doing any of the work and focused solely on his own pleasure?

Yeah... it's like that for a lot of guys when they're sleeping with women. A good 30% to 50% of the women I've dated were like that. The sex wasn't fulfilling for me. It was more like I was masturbating but using the woman's body instead of my hand to accomplish the act. It bored me enough that I just got my rocks off and decided to not call them the next day. Some sad sacks that call themselves men are willing to endure that kind of lazy, narcissistic attitude just to get laid, though.

"Attempting to treat low libido with a pill ignores the fact that many women's level of desire is deeply affected by everyday life stress and interpersonal relationships. Add to that a cultural milieu that at once promotes shame and ignorance about women's sexuality while wildly inflating their expectations for sex."

Can someone please explain to me how a sexually active woman is at all shamed in todays world? This is a frakking myth. Men are quite happy to have sexually active women thank you very much, that's why they are pushing this stupid pill. We will try almost anything, but granted, the less effort we have to engage in the better, which is probably a good deal of the problem right there.

Ladies, men really do think of the situation as similar to something out of chivalry - give us a, point us at the dragon you need slain, and then please reward our bravery, over and over again if possible. Be careful about selecting your favored knight and the whole thing should work beautifully, but I can't stress enough.

Yeah... women will have sex when they aren't horny to accomplish other goals, like sustaining the relationship, pretending he loves them, getting pregnant... Why not make this nice and simple and invent a pill that makes men less horny?

It couldn't be that she can't stand her partner anymore, or the whole relationship went stale. Maybe there's a deeper problem in the idea that we can confront all of life's problems by medicating them away. God forbid we actually deal with our problems. That would be hard work, and take time.

I remember heard a (probably apocryphal) story that one company gave up on developing a "viagra for women" when the placebo was 60% effective. . .

Either, man things that are sexual are also mental. Just sayin.'

blueeyedjess: One word that causes this.. STRESS!!!!


What if you have nothing to be stressed about? Husband and wife are fully employed, you just moved closer to your family so you can see your nieces and nephews grow up, the only real annoying thing in your life is your husband leaves his stuff on the floor which is quickly remedied by a gentle reminder and your co-workers who whine incessantly. This also is easily remedied with your iPod.

What excuse do you have now?

With much of the Muslim world having their women surgically mutilated to depress their sex drive, it would seem the solution is obvious - we send them our low-libido women in exchange for the high-libido women they don't want.

No complaints, ladies! You brought this on yourselves!

Men of their dating group might be happy, but older, married men, and more importantly, WOMEN will treat them like disgusting sluts.

Seriously, the shaming of women comes from men when she's not enthusiastic (She was date-raped? slut!) and women when she is. Remember the girl in high school that farked anything that moved? And how all the guys were fawning over her? Well, she had about zero female friends. Women do care about other things besides what men think, you know.

LeroyBourne: 3 times a week? Like that's suppose to be a lot? If my g/f lived with me I'd get her at least once or twice a day.


I said exactly the same thing. and It occurred to me the reason why recently, through an odd metaphor :

DVDs

so there are certain movies that I loved my whole life. When they were broadcast on newtork TV, pretty much everyone I knew would be in front of the TV watching that movie. For years movies like gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, and It's a wonderful life were like this.

In fact, when 'it's a wonderful life' went 'into the public domain' it was suddenly on four or five times a week, on various channels at various times. I made time, rearranged my schedule and sat my ass in front of that movie over and over again.

Then several years went by and it kinda vanished. I bought a copy three years ago. Guess how many times I've watched it?

Twice.

WTF?!

I figured out why ; Choice.

When It was on Tv rarely, I didn't really have too much choice about it - If I wanted to see it that year, I had to make time, make the effort, schedule things, rearrange my life. when I watched it, I'd get even more pleasure out of it than I ever did on DVD.

But now, Every time I think about maybe seeing it, I weigh it against all the other things I could be doing. I think about what I should be doing and what other things I have to do. Suddenly - BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS THERE - the 'need' to see it is less urgent, and frankly, it becomes almost zero priority. Even when it's on TV now, I don't take the time to view it, figuring that I can always see it 'later'.

I think this is what happens - when sex is scarce and you almost never see your girl, you get in the mood just being around her. If you only see her once a week, that's it. You move all your crap around and for those hours, it's just you and her. No Job, bills, parents , nothing else is going to interfere with the massive romance and screwing that will go on then.

so the interest to female's lack of interest is to cloister them with lots of other women and only let them out once a week.

So ... either:

a). You're young
b). You're stupid
c). You're in the early stages of the relationship
d). Your GF is campaigning to move in with you, and this is her bait
e). All of the above.
