“Women are not desiring more sex. They want better sex,”

How exactly may I be of service?

I had a couple of girlfriends who enjoyed sex. Shoulda found a way to keep them around but it may have been the only way to keep a man.

Geez people some of us are pestered enough already by young women and now they're going to give older women an aphrodisiac. There is only so much of me to go around.🤣 A man got to sleep sometime.

“The pink pill — originally developed as an antidepressant”

It is all about brain chemistry. Women do produce testosterone from their ovaries but at a much lower level than men from their testes.

This assumes that middle aged women actually WANT to increase their sex drive.
