Are We Ready For Female Viagra?

The pharma industry wants us to prepare our vaginas for the possibility of female Viagra in the very near future. Last week we found out that a new Viagra prototype drug for women is succeeding in seriously increasing the blood flow to the genitals of female rabbits. Adds a whole new connotation to the phrase “f**king like rabbits,” huh? So, does this mean the promised land of Orgasmia is no longer a mirage for the orgasmically challenged women of the world? Some critics of Viagra-type drugs for women are skeptical. They think this latest study is just more unfounded hype. And if a drug were to actually make it through the arduous FDA approval process, it may be an exploitative way for the pharma industry to make big bucks off of us. Critics argue that the world shouldn’t give women a magic pill instead of addressing bigger issues that lead to female sexual dissatisfaction and dysfunction like sexual abuse, derogatory cultural messages about sexuality, and ignorance about our own bodies.

So what do you think? Will female Viagra be a miracle drug or a step in the wrong direction for female sexuality? [Salon]
