It's being called "female Viagra" flibanserin, (marketed as Addyi) by Sprout Pharmaceutical is supposed to treat decreased female libido. Does it actually do that though?

Unless the female "viagra's" are also simply about blood flow they are clearly misrepresented and should be viewed with suspicion. If a woman does not have the continuous demand for sex like a man then it's tough luck... No surprise by the way that these are marketed as the "pills of freedom" and a feminist cure for the lower female sex drive, like there is a disease to cure instead of a "demand" for hornier women among the male population...

Don't knock drowsiness, let's just say benadryl + orgasm = whole other level(disclaimer I'm not a medical professional and am not advising anyone try this and do not take responsibility for any actions any reader may take up on reading this comment). Not saying this drug sounds any good...I mean hell, if I'm not mistaken, viagra wasn't originally meant for ED, they just realized huh that's an interesting side effect.

Yeah, when i initialy heard months ago that people want to fix your willingness - not your physical ability to perform but your libido - sounds a lot like a rape drug. You even pass out from it now, thats just great. Also, "maybe youve had a glass of wine or too" no, you dont take it on a "when needed" basis, you have to constantly be taking it (im sure by slipping someone a way higher dosage, it would take effect sooner, halftime and stuff meaning that if theres more, more will be metabolised in the same timeframe... so this is no protection from using it for rape) - so you cant drink alcohol over the months/years you take it. Ever.

So, this is chemical "Spanish Fly"? If they ever do create a "female viagra" that actually enable the physical act to be more natural, they would *have* to call it Niagra, right? -Shawn

Kim i think your right, They're Phishing for new way to promote a drug that might beuse for other purposes then to stimulate the lebido!  Great Topic.
Jessica Walsh (3 года назад)
This gives new meaning to the phrase "dying to get laid." I hope women are well informed about the drug, if not by doctors then by videos like this, before potentially risking their safety and/or lives.

Sounds like a shitty female Viagra  but a great new drug for Cosby to use. Besides, everyone knows the female orgasm is a myth =P

Viagra for men is so expensive. Why don't they make it cheap like 1 dollar per pill? :/

LyesmithVerity (3 года назад)
+Walter Salano Sounds like it. Misinformed marketing leading to new dangerous possibilities. I can already see the cases coming: Not rape if she drugged herself even though she was unconscious. x_x

Viagra was discovered by accident, it was originally created to lower blood pressure. Scientists found that it gave men erections and so they decided to put it on the market as a sexual enhancement drug. This is why nitroglycerin should NOT be used in tandem with Viagra. I would be wary of any drug that claims to increase female libido without knowing exactly how the drug works.
SJW 4LIFE (3 года назад)
Not to mention that women have to take this drug every day further differentiating it from Viagra. The possibility of having a woman pass out on me before, during or after sex is not sexually appealing to me.

Disthron (3 года назад)
I think maybe this drug was originally developed for something else and now they're just trying to palm it off as something else so they can get some of there money back. Maybe it was original intended to be an aphrodisiac, but it's a failure, and they are trying to sell it anyway. Ether way, they suck. Isn't there already a treatment for low libido for women?
LyesmithVerity (3 года назад)
+Disthron Apparently they were researching antidepressives. Which's even more worrying, because it'd mean that you're supposed to take this drug every day unlike viagra that you can take right before. Not official that I know of. But there are a lot of non-drug things like specific spice mixes and stuff that work as aphrodisiacs for some people.

I hear if you wear socks and have sex on top instead of laying there and taking it you'll greatly increase your chances of cumming. Ladies any thoughts on this?
magister343 (3 года назад)
Why does everyone keep leaving out the fact the Viagra is actually _equally effective in men and women?_ It works by sending more blood to the genitals. In men that leads to an erect penis. In women it leads to an erect clitoris, puffier labia, and increased vaginal lubrication. It is not FDA approved for women yet, but it is not uncommon for women to have their doctors proscribe it to them off label (or write a prescription to their husbands knowing the wife plans to take it) in order to improve her sexual performance.

Well said Kim. You are right on point. Sex drive and the ability to have sex are completely 2 different things but the drug company is trying to confuse people to make money.
Cyruss NP (3 года назад)
Kim you are misunderstanding something. A man's ability to be physically aroused is the same as his libido. If he gets a hard on, he's turned on in 99% of cases. A female is turned on by having desire first, correct?
Brendan Beckett (3 года назад)
+Cyruss NP That's not precisely true. Viagra will give you a boner regardless of what's going on in your head. There are cases where men can have lower libido it's just more rare, and viagra will not help in that case.

Also WHY WERE THERE MEN AT ALL, LET ALONE AS THE MAJORITY?! This is pure bullshit. Fuck the "female Viagra" pill. There are safer, better ways for a woman to have easier orgasms; it's the simple fact that most aren't up to making the effort.
LyesmithVerity (3 года назад)
+Tara Blackmore It is stupid, but apparently that's because most drugs are tested on mostly white male test groups, which's why some people advocate for gendered drug research since the tolerances could be way off. It's just especially stupid in this case.
Tara Blackmore (3 года назад)
Thank you for proving my point, as well as provide an apt metaphor for this ridiculous study.
xxhellspawnedxx (3 года назад)
+Tara Blackmore Not saying that you should trust it, no matter what the study shows, unless there are several independent studies reinforcing the same results. I'm just saying that maybe you shouldn't be so hyper-reactionary about it, and take it personally. Not trusting a drug, or not seeing the point of a study involving said drug, is no reason to fly off the handle like if you were fired from a cannon. Until you have more intimate knowledge of the how and the why of the study, and the specifics of the drug in question, you're essentially trying to shoot down clouds with a gun. It does nothing, it serves no purpose, and you're just wasting your own time.
Tara Blackmore (3 года назад)
Show me a study in which the sexes have been reversed and I will take your comment into serious consideration. The fact is, no study with the sexes reversed would be taken seriously, so neither should this one nor the drug it tested. The fact is, the study itself is pure bunk; why should we trust this product at all?
xxhellspawnedxx (3 года назад)
+Tara Blackmore This isn't about having orgasms. The problem this drug claims to address is that of basic sexual function: To put it bluntly, problems with getting wet. Yes, orgasms is a matter of effort and know-how, not of chemistry, but that is also completely besides the point. As for having men testing a drug aimed to address a specifically woman problem... Well, there could be several reasons. It might be because they haven't managed to come up with enough test subjects. It might be because this is just one phase in a multi-layer testing program. It also might be to rule out whether the drug is chemically effective at all, or if its effect is just psychosomatic, or if it has wider usage than as a woman-only drug. Either way, I think we can rule out the notion that the people behind this are just stupid. We can assume that they have a plan of some sort. As to whether it is for good or not, we can't really tell from the sparse info we have gotten so far. We only have wild guesses, and those are pointless.
Tara Blackmore (3 года назад)
VERY important info. The passing-out post-sex is a terrifying prospect.
German Pepe (3 года назад)
+Tara Blackmore They didnt clarify when they pass out, other then that all of those participants in the alcohol-related test (with mostly men) passed out upon consuming alcohol. However, you have to take this pill daily, not when needed (though it doesnt neccessarily prevent its use as a rape-drug, given that a higher dosage means more will be metabolised in a shorter timespan (half-life). this is the case with other drugs you usualy take over a longer timeframe.) So you can never drink and allways have to expect/live with those sideffects over the years you are taking it.
americanino1234 (3 года назад)
I like that you brought up the feminism angle.  The first thing I saw about this medication was something about Viagra is covered by prescription why shouldn't this one be too?  After you brought this up I'm thinking the drug manufacturers are the ones pushing these advertisements to try to make knowledge of this drug to go 'viral' and also to put pressure on medical insurance providers to add this as a covered prescription.
americanino1234 (3 года назад)
Ok, I agree, not sure why you are writing to me about this though?
americanino1234 (3 года назад)
I'm not clear you read my paragraph accurately.  I clearly referred tot he medication twice as a prescription.  In fact the end of my last sentence is 'also to put pressure on medical insurance providers to add this as a covered prescription'.

+killcat1971 I never said the person would be receiving the pill from someone else.

+killcat1971 The person would be taking it themselves.
killcat1971 (3 года назад)
+Megalus Doomslayer The idea that "drugs" are being given to unknowing woman to facilitate rape is false, there are no drugs, other than alcohol, in almost all cases. And if a woman is knowingly consuming alcohol then she is hardly "being drugged".

Instead of Addyi, perhaps ACosbyNight would be a good name. ACosbyNight, It'll make you feel like you're with Bill Cosby.
