Move Over, Blind Mice

Since sex seems to be the topic of the day - I deem it necessary to inform the readership of new results in recent studies:

Today's New York Daily News reported that a study shows that women have a loss in their sex drive even after they get off birth control:

The article states that after Dr. Claudia Panzer reviewed records of women taking the Pill, and those who had taken it and stopped, along with those who have never used it - results showed that women who were in their 30's had all been treated for some kind of sexual dysfunction. Eeek

And fellas, don't think you are in the clear just yet.

The FDA is currently investigating reports
Viagra might be the blame for 50 men who went blind. There are 23 million men world-wide who take Viagra.

"This type of blindness is called NAION, or non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. It can occur in men who are diabetic or have heart disease, the same conditions that can cause impotence and thus lead to Viagra use." (AP)

It's a crazy, drug-induced world we live in, people.

All those foreign scientists we have here in H1-B visa's and we can't solve sex-drive-after-the-Pill and Viagra-without-blindness? This country is going to the dogs.

Does remind me of the crap we'd hear in high school -- "if you douche wiht a coke after sex, you can't get pregnant." Or better yet, "if you do a handstand for 20 minutes after sex, you can't get pregnant." Yah, that's a winner.

Interesting, there is an article out today pointing towards how pregnant womens facial makeup may lead to genital birth defects in male embryonic development.

Inconclusive yet so far.

A recent study showed that certain foods cause a decrease in women's sex drives. The first food they studied was wedding cake.
