FORTUNATELY MEN DON'T HAVE BRAINS:

Sex pill to turn on women is years away: The latest academic research suggests that the quickest route to a woman's libido is through her brain. (PAUL ELIAS, 9/06/05, Associated Press)

Drug companies make $2.5 billion a year selling Viagra, Cialis and Levitra to help men enjoy sex. Since more women suffer from sexual dysfunction than men, developing a drug that could double those sales would seem to be a no-brainer.

Yet the pharmaceutical industry has failed women miserably -- there isn't a single sexual dysfunction drug on the market that can help them. Pfizer Inc. last year abandoned an eight-year Viagra study involving 3,000 women, conceding that its famous blue pill only works for men.

''I hate to say it, but women are much more complex than men,'' said Beverly Whipple, the sex researcher who co-wrote The G-Spot.


Amen, Sister.

Well, duh. Viagra helps performance, not desire. Completely different animals.

"The latest academic research suggests that the quickest route to a woman's libido is through her brain."

Use a placebo. Show them your long, fat, large billfold. When women see my money clip, they respond: "what are you going to do with that little thing"?

"The survey of almost 1000 girls aged between 15 and 19, conducted by a mobile entertainment company, TheLab, found that... Offered a selection of occupations, 63 per cent said they would rather be a men's magazine model than a doctor, teacher or nurse. The second most popular choice was "lap dancer", at 25 per cent, with teachers trailing at 3 per cent".

h-man:

Calm down, my friend. Those male fantasies will come around and bite you some day. If you ever hear of a franchised shrink venture that goes public, get in early.

Bruce, that is true, but the situation of the sexes is not symetrical, men sometimes have performance problems, but never have desire problems, their brains are not involved, women, OTOH, never have performance problems (except at defined intervals, but always have desire problems, because their brains have to be involved.
