Yep, this is a bummer, but I am not as upset about it as I would have been a couple of months ago.

This is not a surprise. Viagra affects functioning, not libido. Easier to see how a pill can improve plumbing as opposed to desire. To the extent men want more sex when they take viagra, it is not because viagra produces "new" or "extra" libido. It is because the men alwasy had libido, but it was masked by their performance anxiety. Remove the performance anxiety, and the libido is still there. In searching for a "pink viagra", they are looking for a pill to create libido that isn't already there. I predict they will continue to fail, as the factors which needs to be manipulated are numerous and may work at cross-purposes.

The only hope I see is a pill that makes it much easier for women to have orgasms. This might trigger some libido in those women who currently have difficulty reaching orgasm. For the rest of the ladies who wish they had more libido, I don't see much hope of a pharmaceutical solution.

When you see it coming, duck!

My gf always tells me when something gets her wet (from 'scratch' so to speak). It has been one of the most amazing studies for me to attempt to link many of her triggers to common themes. There are a handful of things that I know excite her like being sneaky about touching (even hand holding at times) but for the life of me, I can't figure out the better half of what excites her this way.

I just can't imagine a pill taking the guesswork out of these most mysterious creatures.

I took some Viagra just for kicks. It made my face and chest feel really flushed and hot. But, bummer, the heat wave never reached the downtown area. Maybe it just needs to be ingested from the other end.

Don't feel bad. I was told by my Dr. that bananas helped keep you regular. It wasn't until the follow up visit that he explained I was suppose to eat them.:smileysurprised:

Glenn and I have been seeing each other off and on for years.

We have helped each other through those dreaded ML dry spells.
