Medication Enhances Female Sexual Interest

This drug will be most welcome for low sexual desire and to counteract the side effect of SSRI anti-depressants.

" Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH is banking on sex really being all in women’s heads.

The German drugmaker is putting the finishing touches on a pill designed to reawaken desire by blunting female inhibitions. Unlike Viagra, which targets the mechanics of sex by boosting blood flow to the penis, this drug works on the brain.

The desire drug, the focus of a meeting on sexual disorders in Lyon next week, has the potential to revolutionize sexual medicine much as Pfizer Inc.’s blue pill did a decade ago. That could put family-owned Boehringer at the center of a debate about whether the medicine is a chemical shortcut around a complex dysfunction involving body and mind -- or whether disinterest in sex is a legitimate medical condition.

“This drug has the potential to finally open the door to acceptance of the idea that decreased desire can be something that involves a dysfunctional way the brain works, and not only a bad partner,” said Jim Pfaus, a neurologist at Concordia University in Montreal, who conducted early tests of the drug in rats. “Of course it’s in your head.”

The U.S. market for medicines to rekindle female libido could be bigger than the $2 billion a year in U.S. sales for erectile dysfunction treatments because more women report sexual problems, BioSante Pharmaceuticals Inc. Chief Executive Officer Stephen Simes estimated last year."

  1. We always had that kind of drug, they call it champagne, a Pina Colada, or my favorite, a Hummer.
    It's all in our minds, especially if the guy is a cheapskate, has the finesse of bull in a china store, is disrespectful, a mama's boy, plays with boys, a brute, a jerk, hasn't bothered to develop any sexual skills or is only interested in getting his rocks off and a woman is just a more pleasant vehicle to ride on while getting off. And that is just the short list. Relationships takes efforts on both sides, building sexual trust and passion also takes effort.
    Deal with it or live without it, boys.
    Because as long as they sell vibrators and porno flicks, men are optional.
    You can blunt the inhibitions but you can't fix sexual ineptness with a pill.
    Also try reading the WHOLE Karma Sutra with an open mind, you might learn something.
    Even the lowest of desires can be inflamed by a skilled and caring lover.
