Uh, I don't think that Viagra increases one's desire. It just helps to keep the lead in the pencil. What they are talking about is The mythic "Spanish Fly". Gentlemen, time to trade for a stick!
female viagra.... it's called REVATIO!!!

Sildenafil under the name Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. Another brand of sildenafil is Revatio, which is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and improve exercise capacity in men and women
one of the side effects is probably low sex drive. The disclaimers are probably a mile long, just like all of the other junk the drug companies are trying to pedal to make a buck
Ethyl alcohol is not a fix for this? Medical candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker

Seriously, if there is a woman out there with a low sexual libido I highly suspect there is a man in her life that doesn't treat her right!!!! Sorry honey but if you don't treat your woman right, don't expect to get lucky tonight or any other night! Just sayin'.
Pure America...we are about to be taxed into becoming a 3d world country, most of our civil liberties are being squandered by ignorance and laziness, and the news agencies are bringing this vibrant and important news...perhaps sex is not the most important thing in life children.
They already have "female viagra", it's called "CASH!" :)
