Only for women in Europe.
A new sex drug, used as a body patch, and claiming to improve women's libido, is among 20 (!) female sex drugs that are hitting the market in the U.K. this week.
Trials have shown that the hormone-based patch, Intrinsa, helps women both think about sex and want it more often. It works by releasing the male hormone testosterone into the bloodstream.
More from the Telegraph.
The availability of the patch is likely to increase the following situations:
Everyeone remembers Meg Ryan and "I'll have what she's having."
Here's the German version, from "Mädchen Mädchen."
Oh, one more thing . . . the lady in the car? She says: "Next time we'll take our bikes."
Finally, Love Island's Sophie does a Meg Ryan without actually using Intrinsa.
Warning: These are all actors, they are not enjoying themselves. Only Intrinsa can do that for you, taken together with a good man.
And you can only get this drug in the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain. The patch, sold by U.S. drug company P&G, has failed to receive approval in the U.S.
Several members of the Food and Drug Administration's advisory committee said they were not satisfied with the number of women studied so far, the length of the studies and the modest benefits of the drug. No word on how many of those members were men (probably most of them). By a 14-3 vote, however, federal advisers said that benefit was "clinically meaningful."
