    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 »

    Taking The Diss Out Of Sexual Dysfunction

    Let’s talk about sex, baby. Sex after menopause — even our girl boners go limp. So it’s no wonder women have been clamoring for a “female Viagra” ever since the male version came out a decade ago. While 43% of women complain about some type of sexual dysfunction, from painful intercourse to the inability to climax, women don’t like to kiss and tell at their annual gynecological visit. So for decades, the issue of female arousal has been brushed off as not being serious enough for the medical establishment. Talk about a double standard! But finally science is ready to rise to the challenge and take the diss out of sexual dysfunction with the first group dedicated to the dilemma: The Female Sexual Medicine Program at the Stanford University Clinic & Hospital. The research team is headed up by a woman, founder//director Dr. Leah Millheiser, M.D., and she knows it takes more to uncork a woman than opening a bottle of champagne and a little blue pill. “Women are becoming more empowered about sexual dysfunction,” said Millheiser. “They are seeing sex as a quality-of-life issue, not just a health issue.” Thank goodness, help is on the way for our golden years!

    Viagra Turns 10 [Insert Lame Erection Joke Here]

    On Thursday, the little blue pill, which has been used by 35 million men around the world, turns 10, so put on a party hat and celebrate.

    Don’t Passover Viagra

    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. In addition to being deprived of everything from delicious bagels to even the sprinkles on ice cream, devout tribe members have not been allowed to take Viagra since its introduction in 1998, on account of the little blue pill’s gelatin casing isn’t Kosher. 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 »
