    Yes, it exists and yes, it has a medical name too:

    hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD),

    http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1939884,00.html

    ...and just like Viagra for men, the medicine industry is in a fever to find a "cure" to sell it to desireless women.

    "a German pharmaceutical company presented results from a pivotal phase III clinical trial in North America and announced that it had found a drug that works. "We saw an increase in sexually satisfying events, an increase in desire and a decrease in distress. When we look at this against a backdrop of a common and distressing problem that affects 1 of 10 women and for which no treatment exists, well, we are feeling very positive," "

    I know a few non-medicine based solutions:

    1. Alcohol.
    2. Watching movies with Brad Pitt, Clooney etc.
    3. Diamonds.
    4. Long,long I mean long foreplay, including lots of massage...

    im sure most of it is caused by their own mothers, but good luck trying to get any truth and honesty out of them or the mothers.

    I agree. I was raised that only whores had sex but once you got married it was wonderful and glorious. Before ceremony - disgusting and bad, after ceremony - wonderful and good.

    I have/had lots of 'only whores do that' issues. My husband finds it pleasing and aggravating.

    was talking to a friend the other day, mentioned to her about the level of lies and brainwashing in the average person meant it was hard to get the truth about key issues like these, my example then was gender stereo typing of children prior to birth etc...
    dolls for girls guns for boys & more soo emotional weakness for girls and emotional repression for boys.
    sad really watching millions of children get brainwashed and mentally retarded by their own parents over and over.
    but... such is life.
    maybe a big war will be nice to kill a few million off while a few more hundred million die from disease or something to slow the rampant over population by the lowest intellect of the species.

    many men do not have money on booze everyday and diamonds, so a pill for women is the only choice. Unless of course they require it, but its hard to figure out what women want in the first place, so I say its up to them to eat what they want.

    well than men should watch their noses, as its been scientifically proven that female pheromones literally control man's mind, to act more aggressively and more sexually minded.

    Erectile dysfunction in men--at least in older men--is seldom the result of a decrease in sexual desire or "libido." It's purely physiological. The capillaries in the penis that are supposed to fill with blood to enlarge and stiffen it don't do their job. A failure of the tiny sphincter-like muscles that increase and decrease their blood blow. Vasodilators like Viagra and Cialis reverse the effect, but since they can't be directed to a single part of the anatomy they dilate the capillaries everywhere else too. This is equivalent to a whole-body hystamic reaction, leading to sinus congestion and other similar symptoms.

    A man without an erect penis can be horny and brought to orgasm. It just takes a little creativity and determination. It is of course nearly impossible to achieve with standard vaginal intercourse--which for that matter may be nearly impossible to perform.

    The male libido reflects a variety of stimuli including sheer imagination, but in the absence of any other stimulus the secretion of semen by the prostate will eventually cause it, as it becomes swollen and requires an outlet.

    Women do not have an analogous physiological component to their libido so their sexuality is more complicated and driven more by conscious and unconscious thoughts and emotions. However, both estrogen and testosterone are also required for proper functioning of the sex organs--the lubrication, muscle relaxation, etc., that makes intercourse pleasant or at least painless. Surgical removal of the ovaries generally stops the production of testosterone and can leave a woman with all the emotional components of a libido but without the physical ability to copulate. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is indicated in these cases, with a mixture of testosterone and estrogen that often has to be worked out by trial and error

    You make it sound so dirty Fraggle. LOL.

    But I agree that the issue for women is more complicated, but I feel personally that whats good for the men should be good for the women, so I hope they find some solutions for women, who for reasons they don't know about or can't figure out will find some help and be able to enjoy sex and desire it more often.

    As I discovered, it has A LOT to do with the sexual partner.

    Whores get paid for it Orly, I think the correct term is slut.

    Although, my wife and I did play a game that I heard many women liked. Offer them a card with 4 or 5 sexual scenarios in which they will perform certain functions for money.

    My wife went right for the top dollar option, asked for the money when we were done and I guess got some weird "desire to act like a whore for the day" fetish relief.

    But I agree that our pruder parents messed with our minds, I am determined not to make the same mistake with my kids, honesty and information is my goal.

    We try to give them a leg up in every other area in life, education, money etc but then are afraid to help them in another major area, sex and relationship help. Sad.

    Yes and it works both ways. Some women make it very uncomfortable for a man to be what they really want. Because they are afraid to expose that which they really want for fear of looking like a slut.

    The sad thing is that we don't communicate enough and not enough truth comes out in those communications to help each other.

    And, sometimes they just suck as a lover.

    could the now ever growing number of feminists/lesbians be a result of a growing female sexual dysfunction?

    No. That wouldn't make any sense. It would have more to do with realizing that they weren't or aren't getting the life they feel is deserved for them.

    They realized that they are their own person and should be able to have choices not made by men for them.

    Who says or where did you read that sexual dysfunction is actually growing as opposed to discussion about or willingness of women to talk about it is growing.

    :yay:

    Are you implying that woman/woman relations is indicative of a dysfunction?

    Maybe they went all dyke when they started reading your posts? Just a thought...

    Erm It is called a clitoris. You may or may not have heard of it. If you find one and rub it you may be surproised at the physiological effect it has on the possessor. I should seek permission first though.....

    All sorts of things can make a 'chick cream' not just thoughts and emotions.

    What? Did his reply to me get censored for saying THAT?
    Lame.

    Or did I miss something?

    Has SF become so PC that Draq's comment is erased at the mere murmur of sexism?
