A new clinical trial is about to get under way for "female Viagra!"
Yup! It's called Tefina and it's a testosterone gel that women spray up their nose about an hour before doing some sex.
Not as sexy as discreetly popping a pill but hey whatever helps ladies get their rocks off!
The drug is expected to be able to boost female sexual arousal and satisfaction.
It's actually causing some controversy because it seems like a quick fix for something that might not be the main problem.
Others though, like Susan Davis, director of the Women’s Health Research Program at Monash University, feel differently. She said:
"Many women who suffer sexual problems know their problem is real, as opposed to [it being] invented by someone else, and their well-being and relationship suffers. They want treatment options and researchers like me are trying to develop them. We already know most women with a partner engage in sexual activity.
However, many who do so do not experience full sexual satisfaction, and surveys indicate that 30 per cent of women cannot climax during intercourse. For many women, this inability translates into sexual activity becoming a chore or a duty instead of a shared positive experience."
So it could actually save relationships!
As long as it's totally safe and the clinical trials go well we'd say this drug could be a miracle to many women!
Or at least make their lovers seem like real stallions! LOLz!
