Women looking to get their freak back may soon be able to pop a new breed of lust drug: Lybrido.
But scientists developing the desire pill sometimes called “female Viagra” confided in one writer an unusual worry. They fear the libido-booster may work too well.
(And the problem with that is …?)
Journalist Daniel Bergner, whose story on the still-being-developed wonder drug was published last week in the New York Times Magazine, says researchers worry about creating an orgasm-hungry nympho. Yeah, the author expressed surprise at that, too.
“More than one adviser to the industry told me that companies worried about the prospect that their study results would be too strong, that the F.D.A. would reject an application out of concern that a chemical would lead to female excesses, crazed binges of infidelity, societal splintering,” Bergner writes.
So drug companies may actually temper the potency of these easy-to-swallow menthol-flavored passion-stimulants, lest these crazy sex-having females have, you know, crazy amounts of sex. Whenever they feel like it, which would, presumably, be way more often.
Okay could somebody remind me if there were any similar concerns expressed about the introduction of Viagra? All I remember is trumpets blowing and everything but a damn ticker tape parade for the drug company that put it on the market.
"Oh my God!" They said, "Now old men can get boners! This is the greatest invention since sliced bread. Which we don't even need anymore because now we can slice it with out boners!"
Look I have been married....a couple of times, and if this product had been available back then I would have gladly bought it in bulk.
It does not make any difference how good you are in the sack, after working all day, making dinner for the family, and then cleaning up the mess left by the kids, a lot of women are just not as ready to rock their spouse's world between the sheets most nights as they were when they started dating. (And before anybody jumps down my throat you should know that I also worked and made dinner, actually more nights than my wife did. Admittedly I was not so good at the cleaning.)
However the fact is that many men, ESPECIALLY conservative men, fear female sexuality and would not know what to do with a sexually aggressive woman if she bit them in the ass. (And after taking this drug she just might do that!)
Well as a progressive male, in relatively good shape, I say "What's good for the gander, is good for the goose. Bring it on!"
"Societal splintering" my ass! The only thing that might get splintered is a few male egos, and I don't see that as necessarily a bad thing.
