Well it's about time that they have something for women, when I told my doctor about my problem, I was told that they could not help, because there was nothing that could be done about it, I would just have to learn to live with it and my doctor at that time was a female. I look forward to trying this new durg.

Surrounded by unrealistic portrayals of female sexuality in the media, women often conclude that they are abnormal when they are, in fact, facing a very normal dilemma with sex and their relationships. Instead of reassuring women, sex information today often implies that woman's sexual experiences are dysfunctional. It is also implied that clitoral stimulation solves any problem with orgasm but the truth is that some completely normal women never orgasm with a partner by any means.


Dear Jehnavi,

Female Sexual could be related mostly with the partner's sexual skills and awaareness. Females are conidered as MOON, which is useful at night. Males do not consider female's sexul feelings.
