    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia—A drug that could do for women what Viagra has done for men is being tested at the University of Virginia.

    The drug is a testosterone-laden ointment called LibiGel, and it’s intended to boost the libido of women who have lost interest in sex.

    The drug will be prescribed at the university in coming months to women who are suffering from hypoactive sexual desire disorder—a condition believed to affect one-third of American women.

    “It is the most common sexual problem that women have,” said Anita Clayton, a psychiatrist with the university’s Health System and author of the 2007 book Satisfaction: Women, Sex and the Quest for Intimacy.

    University of Virginia joins 99 other medical institutions participating in testing the drug’s efficacy and safety.

    If cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration, Illinois-based BioSante Pharmaceuticals Inc. hopes to offer the drug to any woman complaining of a low sex drive.

    For now, though, Clayton will enroll 25 women between the ages of 30 and 65 to take part in the national study.

    Those women must have had both ovaries surgically removed, be currently taking an estrogen supplement, and be distressed about their lack of libido.

    Ovariectomies, or surgical menopause, can lead to a drop in sexual interest because ovaries produce roughly half of the testosterone in a woman’s body.

    Testosterone plays a key role in sexual functioning for men and women.

    LibiGel comes in a pump bottle. The woman rubs the small dot of gel into the skin of her upper arm. Over the next 24 hours, the gel’s testosterone seeps into her bloodstream, boosting her energy and libido.

    Clayton, who is running the clinical trial at the University of Virginia, says the drug is better than previous testosterone treatments because it keeps levels of the chemical constant, much like naturally occurring testosterone.

    “I expect this will work,” she said.

    In its second-phase clinical trials at 17 institutions, LibiGel led to a 283-percent increase of satisfying sexual encounters for the women taking the drug.

    “A lot of women have this problem, but unfortunately they’ve been largely ignored by pharmaceutical companies,” said BioSante’s chief executive, Stephen Simes.

    “It’s not fair that women have no drugs, while men have many.” AP

    Remarks:

    .......I can understand:

    AFP - Wednesday, January 2 06:52 pm
    PARIS (AFP) - Selling sex is said to be humankind's oldest profession but it may have deep evolutionary roots, according to a study into our primate cousins which found that male macaques pay for intercourse by using grooming as a currency.Michael Gumert of Nanyang Technological University in Singapore made the discovery in a 20-month investigation into 50 long-tailed macaques in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia, New Scientist reports on Saturday.
    On average, females had sex 1.5 times per hour.
    But this rate jumped to 3.5 times per hour immediately after the female had been groomed by a male -- and her partner of choice was likely to be the hunky monkey that did the grooming.
    Market forces also acted on the value of the transaction.
    If there were several females in the area, the cost of buying sex would drop dramatically -- a male could "buy" a female for just eight minutes of nit-picking.
    But if there were no females around, he would have to groom for up to 16 minutes before sex was offered.
    The work supports the theory that biological market forces can explain social behaviour, the British weekly says.
    "There is a very well-known mix of economic and mating markets in the human species itself," said Ronald Noe of France's University of Strasbourg.
    "There are many examples of rich old men getting young attractive ladies."

    It seems old men need not to be lonely after all hehehe.

    Imagine how many people in this planet doing sex every hour and every minute each day, and think how many women got pregnant, how many babies are born each day population is high death rate is low. The world becomes heavier because of sex. The question is, can people control or abstain sex?
