Invent it? How can you invent an epidemic?
2003-01-03 11:31:16 AM  
It makes you look like Brad Pitts
2003-01-03 11:31:27 AM  
drugs, eh
2003-01-03 11:32:18 AM  
That is crap. The condition, or conditions as the case may be, certainly do exist.
2003-01-03 11:32:31 AM  
Does it cure a "headache" from twenty paces?
2003-01-03 11:32:53 AM

Movies don't lie!!

I want a pill that makes women not be afraid to like sex.
2003-01-03 11:33:25 AM  
I invented female sexual dysfunction to get laid.
2003-01-03 11:33:29 AM  
How could they have invented "female sexual dysfunction"? My wife holds a patent on that one.

Your wallet magically bulges with money, and a BMW appears in your driveway.
2003-01-03 11:33:53 AM  
female sexual dysfunction? I thought the role of the woman was just to be there during the act?
2003-01-03 11:34:22 AM  
They come to me. I fix them.
2003-01-03 11:34:27 AM  
Wait, i cause female sexual dysfunction when I get laid.

I can never get that straight.
2003-01-03 11:34:36 AM  
a range of symptoms including loss of libido and painful sex

Painful sex could result from lots of things
2003-01-03 11:34:37 AM  
the cure for that is lube and a vibrator.
2003-01-03 11:35:14 AM  
The drug most likely to cure it is Tequila
2003-01-03 11:35:24 AM  
Those evil american drug companies and their....oh wait....
2003-01-03 11:36:11 AM  
As I recall the whole "Male sexual Dysfunction" was supposed to be a myth. Excuse th pun, but a tiny market. Well they came out with Viagra and I bought as much Pfizer as I could. You can bet I'm going to recapture the magic with this.

I don't think there are many male only or female only problems, just people problems. (Obvious - prostrate and such excluded.) In this case what's good for the gander, is good for the goose too.
2003-01-03 11:36:26 AM  
"Do I make you horny, baby? Do I???"
2003-01-03 11:36:46 AM  
43%: Wait, i cause female sexual dysfunction when I get laid.

I can never get that straight.

So, you make women lesbians when you get laid?
2003-01-03 11:37:05 AM  
Nothing a little 4:20 break can't cure...
2003-01-03 11:37:18 AM  
Sebastian Janikowski already knows what pills can cure this.
2003-01-03 11:37:20 AM  
There already is a drug for Female Sexual Disfunction...

It's called Roofies.

<---- Hell
2003-01-03 11:37:35 AM  
More research money going towards helping rich white males get laid.
2003-01-03 11:38:17 AM  
Dear Doctor,

I have "Don't Trust Greedy Pharmaceutical Companies" Disorder. Is there a medication that can help me?
2003-01-03 11:38:39 AM  
there is a direct link between the level of education and pain experienced during sex.

The higher a woman's education, the less likley it is she will experience pain during sex.

Infer what you like from that
2003-01-03 11:38:50 AM  
Good call FLA Chickie.
2003-01-03 11:39:15 AM  
This is nowhere near as bad as Lilly inventing PMDD to renew their patent on fluoxetine.
2003-01-03 11:39:18 AM  
Ya, but herbalists and meta-transindental crystal freaks have been pushing all this crap for longer.
2003-01-03 11:41:04 AM  
GooberMcFly : I like to believe they were already lesbians.
2003-01-03 11:41:24 AM  
Big Dave Smart girls won't let you do'em in the bum?

That's what I got out of it.
2003-01-03 11:41:43 AM  
Cool. 43% sleeps with lesbians.

2003-01-03 11:42:17 AM  
It's called 'vulvodynia' and it exists, it is not something made up by the drug companies.
2003-01-03 11:42:34 AM  
erm, make that 'ad'.

Yeah, I can spell.
2003-01-03 11:42:51 AM  
now, I'm all for pills to increase a woman's libito, however I'm ticked off because it is extreemly unlikely that a doctor will prescribe them for my girlfriend. (as she is a foreign national and not quite 18 years old).

I'll have to start coaching her on what to say...
2003-01-03 11:42:54 AM  
Holy moly 51, that was too much. Ha!
2003-01-03 11:43:21 AM  
Or maybe those "experements" in college you hear about loosened them up.
2003-01-03 11:43:32 AM  
Thank you FoxOnARock. These things do exist. Women do have sexual issues but, instead of reating them, they are told that they are frigid and should loosen up more. Its sad really.
2003-01-03 11:43:48 AM  
This will be a godsend for frigid biznitches who don't want to admin their psychological hangups. Now they can medicalize their conditions, claim they're 'sick' and feel that they don't have to do anything to help themselves. And make others feel sorry for them.

Yes, I realize that the point of this 'epidemic' is to sell drugs, but there will be a lot of prudes who use this 'illness' as an excuse, and who won't get the drugs.

And don't gewt me started on fat people with 'gland problems'. The 'third helping of mashed potatoes' gland, maybe.
2003-01-03 11:43:57 AM  
51 Oh, you're bad...
2003-01-03 11:44:08 AM  
all males suffer from female sexual dysfunction. and boy do we suffer.
2003-01-03 11:46:46 AM  
Man, I could go for some mashed potatoes right about now. Or some sushi, cause of that damned rice cake story.
2003-01-03 11:46:50 AM  
What girl's say: Open, honest discussion and a competent partner that listens will.

What Guy's hear: Talking dirty and a pez-dispencer full of Viagra.

Props to Mrs.M

It's called 'vulvodynia' and it exists

Well, shoot, if it's gotta fancy name fer it, I reckon it MUST exist.
2003-01-03 11:47:17 AM  
What's up with you married men who can't get their wives to put out?

She begs me, and that's all there is to it.

Am I just lucky?
2003-01-03 11:49:01 AM  
My ex had hangups about sex. I got her through them. Once she realized she enjoyed herself, it was smooth sailing.

The secret ingredient, my friends, is confidence and support.
2003-01-03 11:49:09 AM  
Yes nesta, you're very lucky.
Just keep shocking her with new things and you should have a long happy life. :)
2003-01-03 11:49:11 AM  
I found this quote from another article that I think sums it up nicely:

"The potential risk, in a process so heavily sponsored by drug companies, is that the complex social, personal and physical causes of sexual difficulties, and the range of solutions to them, will be swept away in the rush to diagnose, label and prescribe."

It's sad that the women who are ashamed of their sexual difficulties will feel that they can look to a pill for an easy cure, rather than getting to the real root of their dysfunction.
2003-01-03 11:49:29 AM  
***The higher a woman's education, the less likley it is she will experience pain during sex.***

Well, imagine all teh experience tehy got in college, "working" to get an A. By the time you get to 'em, they're worn out.
2003-01-03 11:49:34 AM  
I will buy into anything that gets women to loosen up, so to speak.

I'm not saying that I'm misogynistic. I actually think it's a social problem... women are still sexually disenfranchised.
