While researching articles on drugs to combat low libido in women, I was listening to my Baroque playlist. One of the comments, “Really is orgasmic music,” by Andrew9994 pertained to this piece http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSjAeKPoq5g&list=PL39AA25748C924B56. Listen for yourself and see if you agree. The next piece on the list had a vocal accompaniment, translation:
Lost love The river of memories The gravel bed of the past Is coming back to me But where will I find you If you don’t want me to? I feel the kisses again Your kisses They are still burning me (Kisses) that make me pine (Kisses) that make me die The river of memories… And the sea you see over there Its heat, its warmth I’d like to change it Into a frosty sea Into a mortal darkness. Translation by Konstantin Bratoev.
A wonderful morning of erotic sounds and words.

Can a drug be too effective? Scientists claim that they may need to change the potency of the new ‘female Viagra;’ they fear an out of control sexual desiring woman. Did they ever consider this for the male Viagra? I think not.
Why not leave it up to the woman to decide? Are we unable to determine whether our sex drive is creating an unwanted situation? If the ‘itch’ is persistent and uncomfortable I believe a woman might decide a lower dosage is necessary. To have scientists and FDA (I suspect male) not offer us options is out of their personal fear; they are not practicing good science.
The word nymphomania is used within several articles. What does that word actually mean? More desire for sex than your partner can handle?
Excerpt from article at SFGate Blog:
Hot Topics: Scientists Fear Libido Booster too Effective
“More than one adviser to the industry told me that companies worried about the prospect that their study results would be too strong, that the F.D.A. would reject an application out of concern that a chemical would lead to female excesses, crazed binges of infidelity, societal splintering,” Bergner writes.
So drug companies may actually temper the potency of these easy-to-swallow menthol-flavored passion-stimulants, lest these crazy sex-having females have, you know, crazy amounts of sex. Whenever they feel like it, which would, presumably, be way more often (starting in 2016, when the drug developed by amusingly named med makers Emotional Brain is expected to hit the market).
(Again, the problem is …?)
“You want your effects to be good but not too good,” Andrew Goldstein, who is conducting the study in Washington, tells Bergner (on page 8, online) in the May 22 story. “There was a lot of discussion about it by the experts in the room … the need to show that you’re not turning women into nymphomaniacs. There’s a bias against — a fear of creating the sexually aggressive woman.”
