Now that the medical market for male erotic stimulation has been completely saturated, it’s time for the ladies. (So much for ladies first, huh?)Anyway, a new drug, a nasal spray, is supposed to strengthen female erotic arousal. The drug is currently undergoing clinical trials in Australia and Canada. Women between the ages of 18-49 are being solicited to test the spray.

The drug, which is called Tefina, is a testosterone gel that is absorbed through the nose within a matter of minutes. From there, it’s said to affect the female libido within a couple of hours.

Many are touting Tefina as the new, female Viagra. While Viagra dealt with the very real health issue of erectile dysfunction, Tefina is said to be a solution to the similar Female Orgasmic Disorder, (FOD).

We all know that there are plenty of women who go unsatisfied in the bedroom but who knew there was a real name for it? Though there is skepticism, there are doctors who insist FOD is no joke.

“Female sexual dysfunction is a real thing and we think up to 43 percent of women suffer some form of sexual dysfunction,” Dr. Fiona Jane of Melbourne’s Monash University told ONENews. “A lot of people have thought that drumming up the idea of a female ‘Viagra’ is just for pharmaceutical companies. In fact, there is a huge need for women to have their sexual dysfunction addressed.”

FOD might be very real and as prevalent as this doctor asserts. There might also be a lot of men out here who don’t know what they’re doing. The verdict’s still out. Either way, I could see how this could be some type of ploy to target a new consumers when it comes to the arousal drugs. We all know about the millions of dollars Viagra made folks.

But the question is, would women be going out in droves to buy this nasal spray in the same ways men snatched those blue diamonds off the shelves? I can think of several reasons why the response might be a little bit different. For one, believe it or not, there are still quite a few women who aren’t comfortable enough with their sexuality to ask for a prescription or pick it up once they’ve gotten it. There’s the additional social stigma of telling their partner they’re not being satisfied, and maybe it’s me but the fact that it comes as a spray is a bit disconcerting. But maybe I could have it all wrong. After all, there was an initial stigma behind Viagra before it practically became a recreational drug for men of all age groups and varying degrees of ED, including those who didn’t have it at all, popping pills.

What do you think, is this a ploy to get women to spend money on arousal drugs? Do you think women will buy Tefina like men bought Viagra?
