Success: FDA Approves First Female Libido Drug

pills-by-farm-studio-field

Target: Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

Goal: Applaud the approval of a drug used to treat low female libido, ending discrimination against women in the libido drug category.

Thanks in part to petitions like ForceChange’s “Don’t Discriminate Against Females for Libido Drugs,” the FDA has approved the first drug used to treat low female libido in the U.S. For years the male version, Viagra, has been around, yet the idea of a female version was controversial and difficult to get approved by the FDA.

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder, or a continuing lack of sexual desire in premenopausal women, is said to affect one in 10 women. In a statement released by the FDA, the organization said it strives to protect and better the health of women, and that this drug was a step towards that goal.

As a previous petition mentioned, women’s sexual dissatisfaction has long been a topic surrounded by confusion and lack of discussion due to traditional societal norms. The approval of this drug will hopefully help to open the door to more discussion about this topic and create even more progress for women.

Applaud the approval of this drug and the step forward towards progress for women.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Woodcock,

As you know, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug used to treat low female libido in the U.S. Drugs like this have often been difficult to get approved by the FDA, maybe because women’s sexual dissatisfaction has been surrounded by confusion and lack of discussion.

I hope that the approval of this drug will help to open the door to more discussion about this topic and create even more progress for women. I applaud you and the rest of the FDA for the approval of this drug and the step forward towards progress for women.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This petition is rapist. Scientists always used to say their was no such thing as a real aphrodisiac, a sex drug. These have only been available in recent years, since genetic engineering came about. I believe they are human genes which have been engineered into another organism like a plant or bacteria for farming and to be refined from it into a product. Their natural human bearers have not been identified or consulted and these products are therefore rape, the sexual use of a person without their consent, and cannibalism, the consumption of another human being. I would not use them myself, and I don’t think anyone else should.

  2. I wonder if the women will have to pay more than the men. Before we jump and down and think women’s sexuality is being taken seriously, lets see much this little gem cost.
