Why You Should Care About ‘Pink Viagra’

Women losing desire, whether permanent or temporary, has been high on the “quick fix” track of pharmaceutical companies since the hit of the “little blue pill” for men – Viagra. Because, you know, the companies feel that it’s a biological problem on why desire wanes – like men and blood flow for ED (erectile dysfunction). To say it’s just a biological issue with women & desire is like saying it’s just the President who runs the United States.

I read a great article yesterday on the sham of ‘pink Viagra’ –> click here for article and the pharmaceutical companies liar liar pants on fire campaign to get the FDA to buy into their dream.

I’m not going to rehash the article’s opinion as it was well-explained and I cannot add any more insights to what they had written. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Think about the impact of a little pill for women & desire. Think about the implications. Doctors have a short attention span listening to women tell their stories about low desire. The comments I have heard from other women about their conversations include the doctor saying, “It’s all in your head,” and “Loosen up,” and my personal favorite, “Have a glass of wine – you’ll be fine.”

Can you imagine what will happen when all they will want to do is write a prescription for a pill? Many (not all) will not dig deep to discover the root causes (it’s usually more than one reason) of the lack of desire?

Do you think doctors look for the cause of ED anymore? Not very often. Why should they if all their client wants is the blue pill?

By jumping on the pill wagon and not getting to the heart of why a woman has lost sexual desire, a doctor/Psychiatrist/Psychologist/Therapist could miss:

  • SSRI drugs (depression & anxiety) dosage is too high & cuts off the sex drive.
  •  A woman might be in the middle of relationship problems.
  • She might be stuck in her own head with defeating thoughts.
  • Body issues could be core.
  • High blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, cancer could be the underlying cause & their meds to treat them.
  • The woman may be living with her parents & with her kids.
  • She may be single and forgot how to feel desire. With desire – once it’s not used any more – it wanes.
  • Still holding onto hurt from a failed love affair/marriage.
  • She lacks confidence in the bedroom.
  • Her husband/partner/lover lacks sexual finesse and she’s bored.
  • She and her partner have different sex drive levels.

And the list goes on.

You should care about the little pink pill that can’t – but big money says it can – being thrust into your life as it will not allow you to get to the bottom of what caused the start of the loss of desire. Without the root cause/s – the desire will slip again (provided the pill even worked) – which will have you  turn to a higher dosage of medication. And that cycle will keep going.

A pill is not the answer. An understanding of the complexity of female desire is a start in the right direction.
