I hear the word "VIAGRA" on a daily basis multiple times.  I can't watch TV at night without being subjected to at least half a dozen of these erection marathon commercials.

So, why haven't you and I heard about OXYTOCIN???  Remember Oxytocin?  Okay, let me really jar your memory...remember... LABOR?  Remember that our bodies secreted Oxytocin during labor so we could actually get that enormous huge baby body out of our teensy weensy ones?

Well, I recently went to the hormone doc for a check up.  She asked me about my sex life and I said it was pretty good, all things considered (saggy body, sleep deprivation, heat flash on/heat flash off, prickly skin, etc. etc. blah blah blah).    

With a twinkle in her eye, she asked me if I'd like a little help...a little boost?  This sounded intriguing, so she explained that Oxytocin came in PILL FORM, and could help with the whole "in the mood" thing.

sex pills

I jumped at the chance for this little Viagra wannabe and she wrote the prescription.  Now, I've got these tiny pills that promise a pack of punch and I'm ready to go.  

I'm a bit skeptical.  How come I've never heard of these sex-drive supplements?  Why hasn't this been on the news and why aren't all the commercials shown during Oprah and The View crammed with the promotion of these libido-loving capsules?

Are women still seen as not being as sex-driven as men and the money just isn't there for the marketing?

I'll let you know if they work...

It is heartening to know that "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" has finally come true in the form of female Viagra, even if it is known as Oxytocin!!  Better hang tight with the few you have and steer those other gals to the nearest doctor's office, and oh, by the way...who is the maker of this pill cause we need to buy stock NOW.

All of this emphasis on making sure no one ever suffers from any type of sexual dysfunction is all well and good, but I have this nagging visual in the back of my head...

Let me paint the picture:

A loving couple enjoying a romantic dinner replete with candles, fresh flowers, wine and soft music.  They flirt and touch but before they take these loving moments to the next level they each grab their "Viagra" and Oxytocin pill respectively, their water glass, toast and swallow...

Romance tempered with pharmacology..........Whatever works!!

    • Ok, you caught my attention! LOL!

      I’d be careful with this drug. I believe it is extremely addictive. Wasn’t it the drug Rush Limbaugh became addicted to?

      Ladies, be sure to read up on all of the drugs you are prescribed. I am sometimes horrified by the symptoms the Doctor and Pharmacist neglect to tell me about, for both me and my kids! I recently was prescribed a cream for a skin rash that actually BURNED my skin! UGH, I was worse off than the rash!

    • Hi Dana,

      Thanks for the comment.  But rest assured, you‘re thinking of OXYCONTIN.  BIG difference.  Oxycontin is a powerful pain killer and ridiculously addictive and dangerous. This is what Rush Limbaugh was addicted to.

      Oxytocin is:

      Oxytocin (IPA: /ˌɔk.sɪ.ˈtoʊ.sɪn/) (Greek, “quick birth“) is a mammalian hormone that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain.

      In humans, oxytocin is thought to be released during hugging, touching, and orgasm in both sexes. In the brain, oxytocin is involved in social recognition and bonding, and may be involved in the formation of trust between people[1] and generosity.

      In women, it is released in large amounts after distension of the cervix and vagina during labor, and after stimulation of the nipples, facilitating birth and breastfeeding, respectively. Synthetic oxytocin is sold as medication under the trade names Pitocin and Syntocinon as well as generic oxytocin.

      During peri-menopause and menopause, women do not excrete as much oxytocin resulting in a lower sex drive.

      The pill form I have taken is a very small dose, and quite frankly, didn’t rock my world sexually, but did give a little added boost of some blood flow which gave just the slightest of tingly feelings.  

      I ran out of it awhile ago and haven’t reordered it.  There are different ways of reving up the ole engine, and this can be a small tiny one...

      Hope this clears things up,

      Mary

    • Sure, if it’s safe and works, what the heck, go for it. But don’t expect miracles from a pill. So much of a women’s sexuality is tied to emotional elements within her, her self-esteem, and the feedback she gets from her partner.
