Myths, Misogyny, and Misconceptions

Encouraged by the dramatic success of drugs developed to treat male sexual dysfunctions during the last decade, (Viagra, Levitra, Cialis), many of us in the field of sexuality felt that similar drug treatments for women’s sexual disorders would be right around the corner. Certainly many pharmaceutical companies have been hard at work trying to develop a “little pink pill,” with several companies on the verge of testing their version of such a drug on human subjects in Phase III clinical trials.

The prospect of effective drug treatments for female sexual dysfunctions has drawn surprising and sometimes cynical responses from some quarters within the health care community. Some say there’s no such thing as a female sexual dysfunction. Others are plain misogynists. Many, unfortunately, are just misinformed.
