I've noticed a new trend in medications being advertised on television and in print ads. These medications purport to make women more interested in intimacy and "seem like my old self-before the children". The ads show mostly late 30ish and older white women who seem too tired, too stressed out, too busy to be interested in sex. Some of these are even being called "the little blue pill for women", or "viagra for women". Since Viagra for men works to improve an actual circulatory problem, is it accurate to call these medications "viagra for women"? Can female disinterest in intimacy be medicated away? Sistas (and brothas) what's your opinion?

Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Henry you deserve a spanking for that reply, but here's what I really mean...

EVERY woman has days, or nights, when she is just not in the mood or just too tired to make love to her man...Is this really something we should be medicated for? Whatever happened to candelit dinners? a weekend away? a relaxing massage? soothing music? the quickie? strawberry flavored warming lotion? edible panties?

errr....i digress, but you get the point, right? the only sexual condition I would think needed to be medicated in women would be vaginal dryness which is a hormonal issue usually remedied with "the patch". Is television telling us we need to be in heat at all times? that it's abnormal to go thru phases of declining sexual interest?

I disagree with this totally...
I don't think the Viagra for women is to make women more interested in intimacy psychologically, but to fix those problems that make intimacy difficult physically.

There are women implanting probes near their spines just to be able to orgasm.

There are cases when the mental is there and the women's bodies just need help.

Like men.
Hi Ma'am!

it's been a long time since i posted here, but glad to see your interest in the topic. Maybe I can clarify...

I do not believe that this pills which are being advertised as comparable to viagra are actually beneficially in any way. Men's viagra actually corrects/treats a circulatory problem in men. A woman's disinterest in sex is not caused by a circulatory issue, in general...

so women are being sold placebos?
I understand what you are saying about libido, but Viagra isn't about that.

For those who just want a libido boost, they'll probably have better luck with meth. Razz

There are women whose dysfunction is mental. But not all.

Just as with the guys, the female version of Viagra is for those with physical issues.

There are women who no matter how mentally aroused they are, their bodies won't react accordingly.

The women's version of Viagra helps with genital circulation and aids in regards to sensitivity, arousal, and lubrication.

That pill will probably be no good for those with actual no desire for sex, not it's not for them.

Viagra has been showing promise for women who need treatment for their physical problems.
if a woman was having difficulty with lubrication, etc, most likely her doctor would prescribe her a hormonal cream...not a pill which could be ordered off late nite infomercials. I just think the whole "let's make women think they need a pill" idea is bad for women.

if a woman is tired, or depressed, or preoccupied...those are not little blue pill issues.

if she has vaginal dryness...that is a medical condition, which already has standard treatment.
