    The market for products to treat sexual dysfunction is almost exclusively a male club. While men have a variety of choices — including Viagra, Cialis and Levitra — women don’t have a specific pharmaceutical product for female sexual dysfunction, or FSD. That’s partly because it’s hard to measure FSD, experts say. Sexual dysfunction in men is easy to gauge from a physical standpoint. And in women? “We’re looking for an increased number of sexually satisfying events,” said Amy Stevens, a medical doctor and analyst with Susquehanna Financial Group.... ...The standard treatment for female sexual dysfunction has long been testosterone. Commonly...

    If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.) If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. (Now that's more like it!) The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet. (O.M.G.!) A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (In my next life, I want to be a pig.) A cockroach will live nine days without its head before...

    'If you want to find true happiness, just fake it' In her latest book, the feminist icon Fay Weldon has caused a sensation by turning the beliefs of the sisterhood upside down. By Amelia Hill Amelia Hill Sunday September 3, 2006 Observer Telling women not to expect orgasms but to fake them, and to praise their partner lavishly afterwards, is not advice normally associated with a woman who has been in the vanguard of feminism for four decades. Nevertheless, Fay Weldon gives short shrift to the views for which feminists have fought so bitterly over the years. In her latest...

    (snip) - Dear Liza Potter: I am delighted to respond to your recent charge against me, which was sent to Rosemary DePaolo, Chancellor of UNC-Wilmington. Characterizing my column as an act of sexual harassment against all women in the UNC system is a tremendous favor for which I am truly grateful. I’ll explain that as I go along. In the opening lines of your sexual harassment complaint, you stated that you “feel very strongly” that my “sexist, discriminatory language toward the female students at UNC constitutes sexual harassment and violates the existing anti-discrimination policy.” That is an extremely important point,...
  • Pfizer Patents Premature Climax Pill For Women

    Doncaster, UK (AHN) - The maker of the widely popular male impotence drug "Viagra" is now ready to tackle an issue many are not even aware of. Premature orgasms among women is an issue that is increasingly being talked about in doctors offices across the globe and drug maker Pfizer believes it has the market cornered for a cure. "Whilst anorgasmia and difficulties with orgasm are well-represented in the female sexual dysfunction literature, rapid orgasm - a female problem sharing components with premature ejaculation in men - is notable by its absence," says the patent from Pfizer. The company believes...
  • No faking female orgasm in scientific research

    Women may be able to fool their partners by faking an orgasm but a brain scanner will catch them out every time, a conference heard Monday. Researchers at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have used scans to show that different areas of the brain are stimulated during an orgasm but are not activated when a woman fakes it. "Women can imitate orgasm quite well," Gert Holstege told a fertility meeting Monday. "But there is nothing really happening in the brain." He and colleagues took brain scans of 13 women and 11 men, aged 19-49 who had volunteered for...

    The days of faking it are over. Scientists who studied the brains of 24 people during orgasm could readily determine exactly when the earth does not move for a faker. Researchers also found couples can literally get "cold feet" when having sex, and that what women have said for years is true: When it comes to arousal, it's a simple matter of sensation for men, and all wrapped up in a state of mind for women.

    COPENHAGEN -- New research indicates that parts of the brain that govern fear and anxiety are switched off when a woman is having an orgasm. In the first study to map brain function during orgasm, scientists from the Netherlands also found that as a woman climaxes, an area of the brain that governs emotional control is also heavily deactivated.

    Or maybe no. Can the latest female orgasm theory really hold up?Imagine the scenario, five or 10 years hence. 'Did the earth move for you, darling?' 'No.' 'Well, keep on taking the medicine. It's bound to work one day.' Where puritanism and Darwinian science have already gone before, Professor Tim Spector of St Thomas' Hospital, London now follows: female orgasm, he says, is all in the genes.To come or not to come is out of a woman's hands or, for that matter, her partner's. It's all been decided by nature; biology rules that some women will never enjoy what the...
  • Ability to Orgasm May be Genetic

    A woman's genes might affect her ability to achieve orgasm, British researchers report. They haven't found an "orgasm gene," and they don't dismiss other influences (such as cultural, social, and psychological traits). They also say they know they're wading into a "highly speculative and controversial" topic. However, Kate Dunn of London's St. Thomas Hospital and colleagues say science has overlooked female sexuality for too long. "Until recently, little research has explored female sexual function, and yet women commonly report sexual dysfunction," they write in the journal's early online edition of Biology Letters. The lack of scientific interest in the topic...
  • Genes drive ability to orgasm: Scientists say DNA exerts strong influence on whether women climax

    A woman's genetic make-up accounts for at least a third of her ability to climax during sex, say researchers, and may even account for as much as 60%. Further investigations into the genetic differences that influence orgasms in women could help produce drugs to treat female sexual dysfunction, they say. Relatively little is known about the female orgasm, the peak of sexual excitement normally marked by vaginal contractions. "It's a taboo subject," explains Tim Spector, who directs the Twin Research Unit at St Thomas' Hospital, London, and co-authored the report. Women do not need to climax in order to conceive...

    A woman's ability to gain sexual satisfaction is largely inherited, according to research published today.Scientists found that orgasms are pre-programmed into a woman's genes rather than caused by psychological factors, cultural traditions or the abilities of her partner. They believe their findings support the theory that reaching orgasm is an evolutionary device based on the idea that poor lovers are less likely to be good long-term partners. It is hoped the identification of the genes involved will lead to a treatment for the approximately one in seven women thought to have difficulties having orgasms. Researchers at the twin research unit...
  • A Critic Takes On the Logic of Female Orgasm

    Evolutionary scientists have never had difficulty explaining the male orgasm, closely tied as it is to reproduction.But the Darwinian logic behind the female orgasm has remained elusive. Women can have sexual intercourse and even become pregnant - doing their part for the perpetuation of the species - without experiencing orgasm. So what is its evolutionary purpose?Over the last four decades, scientists have come up with a variety of theories, arguing, for example, that orgasm encourages women to have sex and, therefore, reproduce or that it leads women to favor stronger and healthier men, maximizing their offspring's chances of survival.But in...
  • Brazilian Town Declares Orgasm Day

    Sex rarely makes the news in Brazil's conservative Northeast until a small town declared an official Orgasm Day on Monday. Espertantina Mayor Felipe Santolia endorsed the May 9 holiday, which he said was intended to improve relationships between married couples. "We're celebrating orgasm in all its senses. There's even a panel discussion on premature ejaculation. But from what I've seen, women have more trouble achieving orgasm than men, especially in marriage," Santolia said by telephone from Esperantina, 1,300 miles (2,100 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro. Santolia said the remote town of 38,000 people has been unofficially celebrating orgasm day...

    Islam’s Hatred of the Clitoris | October 19, 2001 Editor’s Note: The following article contains graphic descriptions of female genital mutilation, which some sensitive readers may wish to avoid. IF YOU HATE WOMEN, and you hate their sexuality, and you are terrified that you cannot control it, the most effective thing you can do is to mutilate female sexual pleasure. This can be done by a sexual lobotomy, which will destroy an essential and sacred part of a woman’s natural makeup. In achieving this feat on all women, you will become able to ruthlessly dominate them. Make Comments ...
