The article discusses the issues concerning the efforts of pharmaceutical companies to test Viagra for women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). It states that clinical research discovered that compared to placebo, 100 milligram of flibanserin enhanced the number of sexual satisfaction. According to the author, it is unethical to test libido-enhancing drugs against anything, unless it is already proven therapeutics.
