We all need a, ahem, turbo boost sometimes and men have gotten over (not that I would know about that. Ha!) with Viagra since the ‘90s. Women, who often still fight against stereotypes about sexual desire and satisfaction, have been left out of the mix when it comes to sexual enhancement drugs. I’m sure the ladies wonder what’s up. We have satellites that can read the time off your watch, but nobody can create a turn-on pill? Good news is, doctors are on the cusp on something for women. It’s not a pill however, it’s a nasal spray. The main question is, when does it get here? Right ladies? Fellas?

 

From The Atlantic:

Men have Viagra/Levitra/Cialis, and women should have an equivalent option.

Tefina is testosterone in the form of a nasal spray, which, like Viagra, dilates blood vessels. One place that happens noticeably is the genitals, where increased blood flow increases sensation. "This dilation increases the capacity for women to experience an orgasm," Davis told The Current. According to her it's been effective in about 60 percent of patients when used prior to sex. Beyond the physiologic mechanism, interestingly, she says testosterone also "has effects on thoughts, desires, and fantasy."
