Women's Libido Pill: Desire Low, Women Broken, or Overworked/Stressed?

So, what say you KB. Do women need this (unsafe?) libido pill because we have low sexual desire, pick men who's sexual desire does not match our own, we are programmed to believe we are broken and need a pill ( red and blue don't work, so make a pink one?), or are we just overworked and overstressed (as usual)?

Quote:In the trial combining flibanserin with alcohol consumption, three out of 47 women developed a serious side effect of fainting or low blood pressure requiring medical attention.

So no wine ladies.

Quote:As Lori Brotto, a psychologist and women’s sexual health researcher at University of British Columbia, says of women’s sexual dysfunction, it’s “a lot of science mixed with a lot of politics mixed with, some might even argue, hidden agendas, and it’s hard to sift through it all.”

Quote:Dr. Goldmeier, the British sexual health clinician, says flibanserin “probably showed some efficacy. Probably it’s actually safe.” The problem, he says, was “the placebo response rate is so high…You have problems showing it was better than the placebo.”

Considering you have to take it every day and the placebo success rate is high...doesn't this show it's women's programming to be broken sexually, or that since they are incorporating a "fix" into their life, that they are actually putting it as a priority now? I believe they call it 'mindfulness'.

Fixing the myths...

Quote:One of the earliest controlled studies, in 2001, found CBT to be effective at decreasing the symptoms of low desire disorder in women. Before treatment, about 60% of the women in the study reported believing each of the following sexual myths: men are always ready to have sex, and sex shouldn’t be planned. Roughly a third of the women believed each of these three sexual myths: sex should always end in orgasm, couples shouldn’t have too much or too little sex, and you can’t have sex if a man doesn’t have an erectïon.

If in doubt, make a pill.

when i was with my ex, many years ago now, i had hardly any sex drive
at one point.
of course it felt like it was 'my fault'
but after the divorce was all done and i was back to myself, i found
that there was nothin wrong with me in that regard..

my ex was the first one i was ever with.
and i realized later, it was simply because i was not attracted to him that way.
we had love but it was a best friends kind of thing.
but i didnt know any of that then, having had nothing to compare it to.

anyway.
here is tcm's view about it

Interesting article CC.

Quote:Qi can get weak when we get run down, which can lead to low libido or erectile dysfunction

I think being rundown is a biggie.

Quote:Cooling nourishing foods support the body's yin energy so I would suggest deep sea and cold water fish, including salmon, sardines, and shellfish. The omega-3 fatty acids in these fish are also good for one's sexual health.

I think omega-3 fatty acids play a primary role in health.

Quote:It is a way of understanding oneness with the divine through connection to another human being.

Absolutely, but getting on the same page can be difficult.

well..
thats very true.
but nowadays i would pretty much HAVE to know he is on the same page.
or nothin at all will ever begin with that person for me.

its essential i be attracted to him that way.. otherwise, just it would be just friends.
simple as that really.. so it wouldnt be all that difficult to tell.

Then again, there is being with someone for decades and both changing along the way. Trying to get back to the same page can be difficult.

in that way for sure.

it wouldnt be very pleasant to not feel like it with someone you have been with that long.
i was 15 years with mine, and that was not terribly long i know but it was not fun.
ive wouldnt want to do it again that is for certain.
i might not have anyone in my life right now but i would rather be alone than lonely
within a relationship.

İmage

But balancing libido within a long union can depend on many factors and working through them is such hard work. Is it all an art form?

i think it must be.. after all it would pertain to the sacral chakra.. that is all about creation.. sexual energy and so on...

anyway. we did all that. had romance and best friends and the whole thing.
hard times as well.. worked through lots of things together.

did all that. dont want to anymore. now i am all about Being the best and fullest version of myself that i can possibly be here.
thats my purpose. and it has nothing to do with another person.

if someone does come along fine but it will never be anything traditional like that again.
it would have to be agreed that it would be a sharing- time thing..
and if there is no one well thats fine as well.
