The Little Blue Pill Might Help Women With The Blues

While Viagra is an invention that has helped grandpas around the country get it back up for their spouses, nurses, and right hands, it now may be able to help women too! A recent eight-week experiment, funded by pharmaceutical company Pfizer, followed 98 women who were having trouble orgasming due to antidepressant medication. They were given Viagra and asked to have sex once a week with the pill’s aide. Seventy-two percent of the girls gave the erectile dysfunction drug the thumbs up! Although it didn’t increase their libido, the ladies reported that it did help them climax. But the findings certainly have some critics — 27% of the women in the control group who were given a placebo pill also reported satisfaction. However, despite shelling out cash for the study, Pfizer says it will not seek FDA approval for females to use Viagra, since it concluded in 2004 that there were no explicit benefits. If you’re still searching for a pick-me-up that’ll work with your antidepressant, there’s a clitoral therapy device approved by the FDA already, and libido-enhancing LibiGel is currently being tested. It looks like women will have plenty of options without having to pop pills like Bob Dole. [Orlando Sentinel] Keep reading »

Passover is a spring time Jewish holiday that commemorates when my people sprung from slavery in Egypt by not allowing us to eat leavened bread products.

Now, building pyramids sounds hard, but eight days without sex sounds really unfair! However, after a decade in the desert, there’s finally hope women will be screaming “Oh God!” through the holiday. Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in Israel is switching its gelatin-encasing recipe to keep the men Kosher for Passover. So while you’re not able to eat bread that rises, you will still able to get a rise out of your mensch. [BBC] Keep reading »
