Desire Drug May Prove Sex Really Is All in Her Head


www.bloomberg.com

Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH is banking on sex really being all in women’s heads.

The German drugmaker is putting the finishing touches on a pill designed to reawaken desire by blunting female inhibitions. Unlike Viagra, which targets the mechanics of sex by boosting blood flow to the penis, this drug works on the brain.

Normally I wouldn't bother to share such a silly story but what I found so very interesting in this case was this little part.

After what Pfaus described as an initial period of hesitation about developing a sex pill, Boehringer decided to move forward. The company needs new drugs because it faces the loss of 1 billion euros ($1.5 billion) in annual revenue when two older medicines, Mirapex for Parkinson’s disease and Flomax to treat enlarged prostate, lose patent protection next year.
SO basically there losing some serious money and in their attempt to earn that back they've moved into the sex drug business.... I'll leave it up to you to work in a pun on maintaining the "Bottom Line"

Hah! Star and flag.

What a bunch of ninnies, this is a great topic about the great downward spiral of pharmaceuticals.

next thing you know - new after-work pill... hydromorphone!

Uh, of course the desire for sex is in our head!
Pretty retarded "discovery" if you ask me.

Ya well if you have ever been in a committed relationship in which the desire for physical intimacy has simply evaporated on the part of the Gyno Sapien it would appear heaven sent.I would pay money for that without any thought of questioning the profit motive.

This ain't ''accidental'' bio-weapon flu shot.

reawaken desire by blunting female inhibitions


You can't be serious? These are two conflicting things.

I realize the female viagra is the grail of modern pharmacy, but a pill that weakens inhibitions is not the same thing.

You want the right one, find a pill that guarantees orgasms. Seriously, they're looking at this the wrong way.

How soon will it be available?!!!!


Actually, as another poster has already said, this may seem to be shady on the part of the pharma company, but to a lot of people this will be like a godsend if the medication proves itself effective.
"Blunts inhibitions".... Hmmm, I think that could be good OR bad. I mean, just how much will this blunt a woman's inhibitions? Enough that I may come home to find my wife knockin' boots with my neighbor?


I'm going to buy some and slip it in her orange juice!

The compound takes three to six weeks to kick in. The pill has to be taken daily, and some women taking part in the clinical trials reported feeling tired, Berner said.


It ain't the spanish fly, sorry old chum.



Flibanserin works on the brain by putting “two feet on the brakes” to block the release of a chemical called serotonin, which regulates mood, appetite, sleep and memory, Pfaus said. In time, the process should trigger the production of dopamine, a chemical that, among other jobs, helps stimulate desire.


This sounds like a happy pill, serotonin, dopamine? I call foul. This is an anti depressant repackaged.

Seriously, they're looking at improving their profit margin and not improving any one's life through modern pharmaceuticals...

As you point out the potential of "blunting female inhibitions" comes with dangerous possibilities for abuse.... Remember Ecstasy wasn't always a party drug...

If it works... How long before it's the drug of choice for the college crowd, high school? Middle school kids...

Of course all in her head might very well mean if she thinks it will work it will... AKA Placebo with a fancy new name

Ah, I see what you're saying.
I guess I could have read the article.


Hmmm, an anti-depressant type drug? No thanks.
Funny thing about anti-depressants. They usually end up ruining peoples' lives.

Doesn't alcohol blunt inhibitions?
I think what would be much more effective, would be something that worked on hormones.
When mine went through the roof, so did my libido!
(I'm much more boring now, night in front of the teli is all I need!

Wellbutrin has the same effect already in "some" cases.
There are several products on the market which offer this blunting effect, wine, beer, vodka, gin, scotch to name a few.
What a great new drug to introduce to an already priority warped populace.
It will also increase viagra sales too ..one would think.

I bet it is mainly males that are working on this project


If this worked we would have a bunch of naked heamorraging maniacs running around the street wanting to kill every man in sight. Alright I will admit that might be a bit too far there with the scenario, but have you ever tried to get along with a woman who is naturally inhibited by these chemicals during that time of the month? Imagine an uninhibited woman during that time.


All in good humor but it could be true.

The very idea of having to use a pill to get my mojo going, just lessened my desire immensely.
try, try again....
A charming , hot guy, with a deep sexy voice works quite well.
Bottle and market that !

What? No more beer, wine, snapps, or Jagermeister in Germany? Why a pill?

Ok, so rhetorical questions, because according to this article there are millions of women (translate $$$$$) suffering from this "disorder".

There can be other remedies for this condition. My sister had to stop using black cohosh, as all she could think about was having sex. Licorice can stimulate the libido, too. So can rest, relaxation, a change in partners (or a partner with good hygiene), etc.

While there probably is someone, somewhere, who needs a pill, I do not believe millions do. Pretty soon there's going to be a pill marketed to spouses who don't like dogs/cats/hamsters/goldfish/etc...break down those inhibitions to a family pet, it's all in the brain.

And, AD, yeah, I'ld buy a bottle of THAT! lol

What the hell is wrong with just being in love and having a romantic evening. If there is a medical condition then fine, go to a doctor and see what can be done, but I don't believe that "millions" of women suffer from this.

It is indeed just a scam by the drug companies to sell something that is not needed, but the advertising will end up convincing the masses that it is needed just to make a buck.

But as they say....sex sells...:shk:

Although I am curious as to what the commercials will look like...shame on me..

Now we got a winner :shk:

You don't need a pill for that, you need to find the right partner. I have no problem bringing my wife to acheive full orgasm, that's not the problem and I'm not bragging here. It's just the intervals in between!!! I tried everything!! flowers, dinner, making dinner, doing laundry, cleaning house, etc..etc.. If I could slip a pill into her drink and that's all it would take....I would buy a truckload!!!

I can think of about 1000 ways to help a woman to get "in the mood" other than make her drowsy through a course of prescription drugs.
