Women, hold on to your pocketbooks tightly. Big Pharma is after your money in the lucrative game of sexual satisfaction now that they have seen just how much they can get out of your husband or boyfriend by making them feel sexually inadequate. This phenomenon is also being explored in the new film, Orgasm Inc., a ‘First Run Features’ release about the science of female pleasure and Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).
With the huge financial success of drugs like Viagra, the pharmaceutical companies don’t want you women to feel left out so they are creating new disorders, dysfunctions and diseases, to convince normal, healthy women that many of you are “abnormal” according to the definitions they fabricate. They know by spending billions of dollars on advertising they will convince millions of you that something is wrong, when it really isn’t. In fact, the whole concept and diagnosis of the existence of Female Sexual Disorder is questioned by many physicians, medical research facilities and researchers!
So get ready for the fancy, sounding medical names that you are going to start hearing from the pharmaceutical companies like: Female Sexual Arousal Disorder, FSAD (when a condition has initials it always sounds more legitimate) or Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder or Anorgasmia (no orgasm). Remember your first reaction is to tighten your grip on your pocketbook and your libido, and then look for simple, common sense approaches instead of new designer drugs from your friendly 20 billion dollar a year drug buddies.
For those of you who have lower libidos than you would like, you may want to ask your physician to check your testosterone levels. Sometimes low dose testosterone is all it takes to heat things up a little bit. A woman’s testosterone levels are highest in the early twenties when sex drive is also at its highest. The decrease in sex drive women experience can often be related to naturally decreasing levels of testosterone with age. In addition, oral contraceptive/birth control pills can also suppress testosterone production. Decreasing testosterone levels certainly effect women and their sex drive as they enter menopause. The replacement of estrogen by itself does not protect against lack of sex drive, loss of muscle, mental sharpness and get up and go.

To the best you, that you can be,
