Don’t Come Knockin’ When The Mini-Van’s Rockin’

porn-for-womenFemale Viagra – or Flibanserin – is on the near horizon. An FDA advisory committee meets in mid-June and will consider endorsing the little pink pill manufactured by a German pharmaceutical company.

Here’s the question: Is this latest development around women’s sexual health …

(a) Earth-shattering (so to speak) good news? Do you give it a Thumbs Up?


(b) a marketing conspiracy to get us to buy yet another product in the never-ending quest to be sexy? Does it deserve a Thumbs Down?

P.S. Has anyone told the male executives that what really turns women on is “choreplay,” as featured above and in the book Porn for Women?!?!

    My preliminary reading shows that wise women are divided on this issue. I am concerned that the pharmaceutical industry is responsible for adding questionable diagnoses to the DSM, the bible for some psychologists and psychiatrists. The intial research doesn’t seem to show a significant result when looking at women who received the drug versus women who received the placebo. I think women’s sexuality is a complex issue and for many women, a pill alone is not the answer.

    Give me good conversation and personal attention (both of which are free I might add) over a little pink pill any day.
