Health: The Female Viagra
Thursday, 2004 December 2 - 11:51 pm
FDA advisers are recommending that the government not approve a hormone patch that boosts a woman's sex drive. Clearly these people are getting more sex than I am.

Researchers have recently found a small but significant increase in the libido of women who were given a testosterone patch developed by Proctor and Gamble. This patch, touted as the "female Viagra", is now waiting for FDA approval.

Despite the many letters I have written, Proctor and Gamble is not calling the patch "Spanish Fly", and the FDA is not close to approving it. There's talk about increased risk of blood clots and breast cancer.

But then again, women using the patch had one more "satisfying sexual event" per four weeks over the control group. Um, one per four weeks? That's like the difference between women who sleep with me, and cloistered nuns. (I should say, hypothetical women who sleep with me.) Isn't that worth something?

I think it's only a matter of time before we have safe and effective aphrodisiacs. The societal question is, will women take them voluntarily, or just wait until they're slipped into their martinis?

That's horrible, I know. This is what happens when I write in my blog after drinking. Come to think of it, my vodka had an odd testosterone flavor to it tonight. And who's that guy lurking outside my window?

I am so not getting this. And I've been drinking too. (We should be iChatting.) Are you in favor or against.

Women will take it. But what they should really do (assuming there's not a physiologial cause) is talk to their men. Tell the men what they want. Take charge. I don't think the men would mind at all.

Boy, this article seemed to make a lot more sense when I wrote it last night. And it seemed funnier too. But that was after four beers and three martinis.
