A Male Libido Pill! Believe Me, Guys, We Ladies Couldnt Imagine Worse


Byline: Amanda Platell

FOUR words guaranteed to warm a loving womans heart: Hello, darling, Imhome. Add to that And Ive just taken my sex pill time to party, baby and itsenough to make a grown woman weep into her cocoa.

Perhaps if youre 25, this could be a welcome message, but then if youre 25,your bloke probably wouldnt need to take a sex pill.

But for women in middle age, the prospect of a scientific inventionreported in the Mail this weekwhich would spark not only the physical capability (as Viagra does) but alsothe emotional desire in a man to make love is little short of terrifying.

Just when the children have grown up and are having lives of their own, whenyou thought you could have some loving time together, do the things you neverhad time for when the family was youngsleep in, go to the theatre, Sunday lunch at your local, curl up on the sofawith a Catherine Cookson novel, watch The Apprentice togetherhe wants you in a nurses uniform.

Youre feeling like matron and he wants Zoe from Holby City.

So, just when women of a certain ageand lets be honest, with children, thats anything over 40when they thought they were emerging relatively unscathed from the post-Viagraera, those dastardly scientists have gone and developed a new super sex drug.

Youd think theyd have better things to do than spend their time trying toinvent a way of enhancing the libido.

In monkeys, the drug had the added bonus of stimulating tongue flicking andeyebrow raising. Some drug.

After a hard days work, for both of us, mister arrives home presenting hisrump, tail wagging and licking his lips. The raised eyebrows? That would be thewoman.

But no, this is supposed to be serious science, proper research; a way ofmaking men and women live together more happily.

WHATS so strange is that these scientists think its all about sex.

And they think we women are stupid. They claim their wonder drug works as wellon us as it does on men. And it makes us thin.

Itll be world peace next, and all in a pill. So this is how its supposed towork. Viagra, made in Cork and used by an estimated 27 million men around theworld, enhances the physical capacity to have sex. Basically their equipmentworks.

The new drug stimulates the release of Type 2 gonadotropin (only a man couldinvent that name) and makes a man not only capable of having sex, but wantingto have it, too. And with his wife. After 20 years! Forget penicillin, thiscould be the miracle drug of the 21st century. …
