Today Show: A Viagra Pill For Women?
There are already many pills to help men out in the bedroom, but there has yet to be one for women…that is until recently. Studies show that between one and four years into a relationship, women’s interest in the mate starts to wane from a physical perspective. Another study showed that up to 15 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 60 suffer from a disorder that causes them to lack a sense of lust, which can cause emotional stress. To thwart problems such as these, there has been a new drug developed that can increase desire and lust in women. The drug, Lybrido, is still in its trial phases.
Today Show: Experts Ian Kerner And Logan Levkoff Weigh In
Today Show turned to experts Ian Kerner and Logan Levkoff to have them weigh in on the issue. Ian Kerner did a a survey with people in monogamous relationships, and found that 50 percent of them were bored with the sensual side of their relationship. Logan Levkoff said that this is a whole new ball game we are in, because generally, this is a problem that men experience moreso than women, which brings into question whether people are naturally drawn to monogamous relationships, or if they choose them only out of necessity.
Today Show: Can Lybrido Really Help?
The next question that was brought up was – can we cure boredom in the bedroom with just a pill? Since the drug is not out yet and results haven’t exactly been rolling in, there really wasn’t any way to say for sure. The implications of this problem being fixed by a drug instead of relationship issues, which Ian Kerner saw as a side effect of our pill-popping society – that we treat the symptom and not the cause. Problems in the bedroom may not be chemical, and could have to do with emotional problems, diet, stress levels, lack of relationship, or the relationship itself.
Lybrido is being called “the Viagra for women,” and Logan Levkoff did not think this to be an apt description because female sensuality is much more complicated than men’s, which Ian Kerner said is not even necessarily helped by the small blue pill, either.
