A program on CBC, possibly from PBS on the "creation"

by Ziks511 / November 22, 2009 11:53 AM PST

of a new "disease" of Female Sexual Dysfunction. It was a very negative program, under-representative of women who feel that they have some species of dysfunction, and concentrating on the drug industry as the villains in creating a new market based on nothing.

It seems most unlikely that they'd do a similarly negative program regarding the various assistances for men regarding the difficulties arising from age, prostate surgery, high blood pressure, and side effects of medications.

It wouldn't surprise me that women would suffer similar difficulties as men do (except of course for prostate problems) of stress and difficulty relaxing in this over-stimulated world we live in and various forms of drug side-effects.

A really disappointing program about a legitimate question.

Oh, and Viagra used to be prescribed in Britain to help

treat women's arousal problems, but according to Pfizer it doesn't work any better than a placebo. The women on TV programs in Britain were quite happy with the effect of Viagra, but the placebo-effect can work in up to 30% of trial participants.

One man's "frigid" is another man's passionate lover,

or another woman's. Frigid is such an ugly judgemental word, and I've seen it used that way. You can't tell what her prior experiences have been in a short encounter where you write the person off without understanding her experiences.

Remember Feminine Deodorant Spray, an idea that played on

women's fears, made billions of dollars and faded away into nothingness, leaving behind a few very wealthy unscrupulous men?
