If your partner’s doctor diagnoses him with erectile dysfunction, he may be prescribed a medication such as Viagra.  While this little blue pill has done wonders for men, it has not panned out to be a panacea for women.  For men, Viagra causes smooth muscle relaxation, which increases blood flow to the penis, allowing it to engorge and become erect.  In women, the issue with decreased libido is not one of blood flow, or lack thereof;  it really has to do with the main female sexual organ – the brain!  So if you took part of your partner’s pill, you might find that you feel some tingling or blood flow in your genital area, but this probably will not be enough to get you “in the mood” because many factors are involved in a woman’s desire…which is the focus of my book!
