Fake pill improved sex drive in women

"Faking it" has long been associated with bad sex for some women, but a new study provides a pleasant twist on that phrase. According to a paper released today in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the placebo effect may increase sex drive for women suffering from sexual dysfunction.

"It may be that their behavior changed as part of getting treatment, even if the treatment itself was an inert tablet," said Andrea Bradford, lead study author.

It was a small study: 200 women who had been diagnosed with female sexual arousal disorder - difficulty becoming aroused or maintaining sexual activity - participated in a study to find out whether a popular male erectile dysfunction drug - Cialis - could also treat female sexual dysfunction.  The women agreed to engage in sex acts over the course of 12 weeks and keep a diary. Fifty women were chosen at random to receive a placebo rather than the investigational drug.

Prior to each sexual encounter the women took the placebo (a sugar pill) and after the encounter filled out a questionnaire about whether sex was satisfying or whether they had experienced an orgasm.

To qualify for the study, women had to be premenopausal (between 35-55 years of age) and have no medical conditions that could explain their diminished sexual desire (for example, pelvic surgery or a radical hysterectomy).

By the end of the study, researchers discovered that while Cialis did not markedly improve sexual dysfunction in women, one out of three women had their previously low level of desire restored to one considered to be normal with placebo.

"It's not that these women simply believed, 'a sugar pill will help me,'" said Bradford, a post-doctoral fellow at Baylor College of Medicine and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. "Other elements were probably therapeutic, regardless of the tablet."

Those other elements may be largely psychological, said Bradford - a function of the women simply focusing more attention on their sex lives.

The study raises more questions than it answers, but the idea of a sham medical intervention addressing female sexual dysfunction speaks to the complexities of female sexuality. It may mean that addressing sexual dysfunction among women will never be as simple as prescribing a "little pink pill" (much like the "little blue pill" marketed to men with erectile dysfunction).

"Maybe we're calling something a disease that is not a disease in the same way as diabetes is," said Bradford. "There may be physical causes for lower sexual desire, but one thing that is clear is there's not one cause."

One implied message in the study: A psychological investment in improving their sex life could obviate the need for a drug for some women.

"It would be great if we had a drug but it may not be your only hope and there may be some real simple steps you can take toward improving your sex life that don't need to involve medication," said Bradford.

    A key detail left out of the story is whether these women were in stable relationships or whether some of them were effectively given a prescription to go out and prowl like a cougar at the local bar.

      Why is it that if a woman is sexually active and promiscuous she is like a cougar and if a man does the same thing, he's just being a man. Kind of sexist. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

      He didn't even say anything negative about single women who are promiscuous. Cougar does not have a negative connotation in popular culture, actually it is a powerful animal. The repliers simply created the idea that it was negative, looks like you are the ones who are least accepting to promiscuous women. The repliers here are the ones perputuating stereotypes.

      The implication is that someone is given a prescription to 'prowl like a cougar at a local bar' implies there is something wrong with doing so or being sexually active if you are a woman. I perhaps shouldn't have said promiscuous, but sexually active instead. But the words still imply there is something wrong with being sexually active and female.

      @Derp: That's because it's not a key detail. It's none of our business and completely irrelevant. What women don't need is another uptight person telling them what kind of sex they should be having, with whom, and how long they should know someone before engaging in it.

      And we wonder why women are screwed up sexually? It's because of comments like that which only serve to make women fear having sex and enjoy it. They're so worried about whether someone like you thinks they're a slut that they can't relax.

      Usually to screen in for such a study, you have to be in an on-going sexual relationship (hence the diagnosis). At least in our sex lab, that is a requirement.

      The cougar thing by itself isn't offensive but the idea that a woman only has control over her sex life if she is a predator... is.

      This study has ALREADY been addressed in a book titled: "The principles of social competence". Google it. It shows that the real cause is the mangiina behavior of men today in feminist countries. It radically lowers the libido of women. Men who fail to exercise authority over women also fail to excite them in the bedroom.

      I was pondering the whole why women get the label cougar where there male counter part would be called a chester or dirty old man. My comical side answered that it must be pay back for girls having to endure the label "slut" while the males were considered "studs".

      This is just more proof that the most important sexual organ (especially for women it appears) is the brain.

      It is sexist because of the implication that there is anything wrong with being a sexually active female. In fact you do this yourself by saying women are 'being whores.'

      " that itself is not sexist because he is in no way shape of form comparing it to men...

      It isn't relevant. and implies judgment of the person's behavior. Read TJ Leeland's post and it explains things. If you don't see it, you don't see it.

    • Common Misconception

      It isn't a guy's responsibility to read a woman's mind, especially if she fakes it. If the woman broaches the subject and the guy doesn't care, then obviously that isn't the guy for them. It's a pretty simple concept. There are so many reasons going into this, a guy performing poorly doesn't really factor much into it. From both my guy friend's girlfriends and from female friends of my own the problem DOES usually lie with the woman, typically those who are incredibly stressed. The one case where the guy was performing poorly, the woman had told him for years he was awesome and had faked it. How was he supposed to know he sucked?

      I am a bit confused. WHAT does orgasm or lack thereof have to do with a lack of arousal, which is what the story is about?
      While I find it fascinating that you are frustrated with your selected partner's lack of skill and interest, your rant has little to nothing to do with the subject at hand.
      What DOES have to do with it is the CAUSE of the lack of desire or arousal. There is no ONE cause, as women have rather complicated reproductive systems. Add to that medical issues and psychological issues and one ends up with literally thousands of possible causes.
      A lack of lubrication causes pain during coitus. That can engender a "turn-off" psychological issue. THAT can be addressed a number of ways, foreplay, artificial lubrication, believe it or not, even viagra at a reduced dose can help in aging patients.
      Does she have pain from a physical ailment? Pain can turn off a woman in a microsecond. Consider a herniated disk in the lumbar region impinging on nerves. She'll NOT be even SLIGHTLY interested in becoming aroused!
      Note the LACK of orgasm so far? THAT happens LONG after arousal.
      Even stress causes greater effects in women than men.
      Or should I say it differently, men are rather dumb. A man will get turned on even if he's had a limb traumatically amputated, in the midst of a fire, during a major firefight in the war.
      Women are far more complicated creatures and medical science is only now bothering to discover just HOW more complicated the female reproductive system actually is.

      Actually, Sasha in society it is usually blamed on the guy. A woman unable to have an orgasm is general viewed by society as the man inability to satify her, either physically or emotionally.
      Also the reason doctor's focus on the female is two fold. 1) Far less men have problems reaching orgasm and 2) There are not many physical conditions let alone common ones that account seem to account for women unable to reach climax. It appears to be more psychological and psychological problems are always harder to diagnose and treat.

      (I am assuming your sarcasm was just concerning the sentence "god forbid the guy doesn't care if he's getting her off; that would lead to communicating about sex, we can't have that") Which is a problem with the guy themselves not a generalization of "guys" in general as it came across in your post.

    The main reason it is so difficult to create a female "Viagra" is because women are quite simply more complicated physiologically and mentally in general as opposed to men. You cannot expect the same drug or approach to this problem to work as well on both genders.

      Actually, I don't think it's complexity or lack of complexity...there are many men who are simply tired of sleeping with their wives, however, if they let it be known that they can't get aroused anymore they have to answer to their wives (who now feel completely unattractive and terrible) and themselves (for being unmanly). I would be interested to know whether Viagra or Cialis actually brings back sexual drive or simply gets the plumbing working. In other words, are the men still disintered and simply reacting to a chemical reaction. The difference between men and women is that men have to actually show their arousal whereas women can just lay there and nobody really knows what's going on except them.

    • Wzrd1

      First, viagra, cialis and other ED drugs simply help the circulatory system maintain male erection. There are no drugs currently available or known that work on "desire".
      That said, viagra and cialis were trialed on post menopausal women with some good results, mostly in lubrication and vaginal tone. Interestingly enough, the women complained about a lack of orgasm, which makes one wonder about the level of education given regarding the drug was given to the women in the studies.
      Note that desire was still not covered. Desire is a mental effect, as is arousal. Physical arousal is a bit different but tightly couples with the mental condition. Hence most drugs won't work on a lack of arousal or desire.
      One must find the root cause out of thousands of possibilities.
      Perhaps that might be a reason medical school and residency are so long compared to many other fields...

    This story doesn't make sense.

    If the "Placebo effect" increased sex drive and the same increase was not seen with Cialis, it means Clalis negated the 'Placebo effect'. So, if Cialis lowered sex drive it means that female desire CAN be impacted by a drug.

      I'm guessing this was a typical case of a "CNN-ism". Most likely, they saw the same 1 out of 3 results with Cialis as they did without, thereby concluding it was a "placebo-effect". If they did, in fact, see it lower in the group with the real Cialis, that would be an even bigger headline.

      not at all. you can test a drug.. you can also test the placebo affect of a drug... these are 2 different things, that when looked at together can help you evaluate if a drug is effective or not. for example if 24% of these women taking Cialas were found to have increased sexual drive, while 12% were found to have an increased sex drive while on the placebo, and only 1% was found to have an increase in sex drive with no medication... you can calculate the relative increase in sex drive to be 11% of women. (24% – 12% – 1% = 11%).

      This test shows that it is more psychological than physiological.

      Sorry Tim, but that's completely incorrect:

      If taking a placebo (sugar pill) improves female sexual desire, why was there no improvement when the women took Cialis? (The women don't know iif thera are taking the placebo or Cialis so you should see the same increase in both. Right?)

    • hi

      I think you are misinterpreting what is being said Gregg. The whole point of this study was to test Cialis' effect on the sex drive in women. You are assuming that it will improve the sex drive when that is, in fact, not known. That is the whole point of the study, to see if it does have an effect on the sex drive. Now, one would assume that the placebo should have no effect on the sex drive in these woman. The fact that the placebo improved the sex drive better in some woman compared to Cialis, just shows that Cialis does not have much of an effect on the sex drive for woman. It DOES NOT mean that a placebo pill (a sugar pill) will increase a woman's sex drive. It DOES NOT mean that cialis will lower your sex drive. The effects of cialis on the sex drive are independent of what the effects of the placebo was. For all we know, cialis could have also increased the sex drive in some of the woman (but to not the extent of the placebo), or even lowered it. The article didn't say. But just because the placebo improved it better than cialis doesn't automatically mean cialis lowers it.

      Furthermore, I would question the results of this study. The statistical power of the study don't seem to be very strong. Only 200 patients total? 50 patients only with placebo? That is a very low number to me and I wouldn't take everything said in this study to the bank.

      Ok. I'll try to explain ths one more time:

      If sexual desire truly, statiiscally, increased due to the "placebo effect" (i.e.desire increased because the women think they are getting medicated) , then ANY pill (sugar pill, Cialis, asprin, vitamins, whatever) provided MUST result in the same increase. According to the article, that is NOT what occured here.

      Based on the results as stated, the only logical conclusion is that Cialis had a negtive impact tp desire.

      LOL! The women taking the placebo's were still faking!! They weren't anxious for sex, they just wanted to get over with what they knew they had to do. I found that after childbirth I had much less sex drive, and after I turned 50, I couldn't have cared less if I never had sex again. After 60, I've vowed to never be bothered again. A good book, a good movie or a good trip to Vegas keep me as stimulated as I care to be. Everyone's different and an example of almost ever preference can be found in just this posting. However, having an orgasm at childbirth is a myth. It's just relief that the birthing is done:)

      Lies!!! Women can enjoy sex as much as men, just not in the same way. Good sex is 40% mental and 60% physical. Women need to feel safe, secure, sexy, and feel something for their partner. The combination of an experienced partner and strong emotions makes great sex.

At best it means that some (if not many) women need psychological excitement and stimulation as well as physical much more than men seem to, although there are known to be a small percentage of men that exhibit similar needs to reach arousal. I would assume this has to do with the way most female brains seemed to be "wired" to filter through both emotional and logical aspects of their thought process simultaneously. I am jsut guessing though.

      Though it may be true that women enjoy sex as much as men, women in general absolutely do not have the sex drive that men have. If they did then it wouldn't be so difficult for men to get laid. Women need the right stimulus before they're ready and willing to have sex, this stimulus is much more varied and complex than that required by men. As Billy Crystal once said, women need a reason to have sex, men only need a place.

    Women in general are seeking sexual pleasure from selfish, disrespectful, phallocentric males who have no clue, nor do they care, about how to please a woman.

    Most boys do not know what a clitoris is, let alone what a G-spot is or where they are located on a woman's body and will not take the time to really get to know what turns a woman on. Furthermore, the sexist and selfish attitudes of males towards women indeed have a physiological and psychological effect on woman when they are in close proximity to each other and this causes women to not want to have sex because these misogynists are, plainly put, a real turn-off.

      @Liberty Queen: It's funny, I was just asking my wife if that old stereotype about men and foreplay was dated. We decided it was. She told me that she's never been with a man who didn't give her foreplay or an orgasm.

      It sounds like you don't like men much. I suspect any good man would run the second he detected that attitude. You have to be a good person to attract a good person. But I also suspect that you're a man-hating lesbian who was with one or two men years ago. I don't say this to be mean, but as one of the other guys said, yours is a very dated outlook. Things have changed since the need to educate men on foreplay begun all those years ago.

Try being more open to dating different kinds of men, maybe the ones you are overlooking for not being your type. Most men are decent in most cultures. If you live in one of those cultures where rape is a way-of-life (certain places in Africa, for instance), then you have my sympathies. If you live in the USA, you need to expand your social circle and find new men, because your anti-man attitude is not the truth.

      A woman's ability to orgasm is 95% mental. For some women, having Johnny Depp giving them everything he's got would not induce an orgasm. For others, multiple orgasms are a cakewalk. I've been with both types and everything in between.

    I think the bottom line here is that the more complicated (or convoluted) psyche of a women is the problem. Too many women tend to be mentally disconnected from their bodies but as many here have already commented, it's somehow up to men to 'give' them the big O. This with precious little communication from women. We're just supposed to know somehow and yet suffer the results if women don't cross the finish line.

    Wow. This article and the entire study is infuriating!

    When males have a sexual dysfunction problem, doctors research and come up with a pharmaceutical drug to alleviate the problem. Was a study ever done to test the placebo effect in men and sexual dysfunction drugs?

    But when women have sexual dysfunction, they just take the drug that they already made for men and test it out on the women. They don't create anything, they just recycle a man's pill. And for good measure, in case that wasn't insulting enough, they run a placebo experiment, just to show how silly women are, and how it must be all in their heads. It's like the "hysteria" diagnosis of 100 years ago. Really?

    I wonder if they have ever done a study to look at incidence of sexual dysfunction in men who have been circumcised vs those who are intact. Those would be some interesting results.

      Wow, you obviously have a large misunderstanding of how the pharmaceutical industry works. The ED drugs were originally developed as high blood pressure medicine. Scientists just happened to notice an increase in erections during the testing, and businessmen took advantage of the opportunity to make a lot of money by marketing this drug as a treatment for ED. They undoubtedly used placebos in the testing of this. It is standard practice to use placebos when testing drugs, not an insult to females. The placebo effect is a real thing, so the drug must outperform the placebo to be considered effective. It is funny how infuriated you are at this. I guess some people are just looking for something to get fired up about.

      Placebo's were tested with men's ED treatments. Men's sexual dysfunctions are more related to physiological problems which is why they are easier to treat. Men's treatments focus on the erection which is physiological. Increase blood flow and it works. Sexual dysfunction in women is harder to treat because they are largely not physiological, but mental or emotionally related and tied to the body's hormones. It's not that men are more important, their problem is just easier to correct.

      Actually, Viagra was an accident. It was meant to treat hypertension and didn't work. When Pfizer recalled the drug from human trials there were a lot of men who weren't returning it so the company became suspicious. Come to find out, Sildenafil Citrate did have a use... Pfizer had just won the lottery. There were no studies to make this happen, they only began after the industry found that there was money to be had.

    It is not uncommon for a placebo to have a positive impact in any pharmaceutical study, sometimes a significant percentage of patients in a study will have improvement even though they have been only given a placebo. The fact that the placebo helped some women in the study doesn not mean that another pharmaceutical product that addresses the issue won't be a success.

    Many seem to think that a women's psyche is complicated . . . but what if it is the society's conceptions of what a woman should be that are just so complicated as to be contradictory? A woman who makes the first move is labelled a slut, but then if she doesn't respond rabidly after the male advance, then she is "frigid." And then some of the sex acts portrayed in porn, that so many US men consume, are really quite the turn-off for women. Hard to be libidinous when asked to do something nauseating.

    Women complex? No, I think it's society with the problem. Ever think that maybe taking the placebo allowed women to make the first move without having to blame their "sluttiness"? Now the pill can absolve her of that feeling. Pretty simple, if you ask me.

      Interesting take on the placebo effect, and you are probably not far off the mark! But I don't see why this is such a big issue if only 33% of those taking the placebo had such a respose; I thought a placebo had to have an effect of 50%+ to be considered effective.

      That being said, I think the response by many on here shows that there are massive, conflicting opinions on female sexuality. A study such as this one does not address the intricacies (not complexities) of womens' sexuality, as it is simply seeking to experiment whether or not this particular pill was effective as far as arousal goes. I would like to know if the study group comprised of women who are horny all the time but can't get wet, or of women who don't like sex and so never do it. That's a big difference if you're trying to find a pill to eliminate actual dysfunction.

      Someone earlier in this thread asked if Viagra or cialis increases desire or just the plumbing: the answer is, just the plumbing. Which I believe is why the study used one of these pills. Most of the comments following the article seem to have missed this point (and the article itself may have also).

      @GoodReason: Boy, you are dead on about the porn comment. I'm 42 and my wife is 41; about three years ago we decided to have an open marriage and quickly discovered that there are a lot of 20 and 30 somethings who think porn represents real sex. I guess we're old enough that our generation wasn't as influenced by porn. Many of the women seem to expect that style of sex too and seem to like it. I literally threw my back out one night trying to keep up with a woman who had placed her hands on my hips so she could encourage me to go far faster than I would ever have done on my own. I am 43, after all; my back can't take that!

      It falls on those of use who have a better grasp on sexual technique to tell our partners that we're not into that, and to expose them to other styles. Women, especially, need to ask partners to slow down and not treat them like a sex doll or porn star (NICELY!).

      Unfortunately, I think men have gone from the days of no foreplay and right in to porn sex. We'll get it right some day, but women need to speak out and tell men what works for them.

    it's funny reading these comments–I can't believe the ignorance in this day and age.
    Women: If you are not getting off, and you blame your partner for not enough foreplay or not pleasing you or knowing what they are doing, well that's your fault.
    Either A) you aren't telling them what to do (most men will gladly try whatever it takes-they WANT to please you) or
    B) if you HAVE told him and he doesn't give a ****, then you shouldn't be in a relationship like that anyway. SO either way, it's your own fault.
    (Leaving aside illnesses that cause this, like low thyroid, etc as they did in the study)
    If it's sexual dysfunction, then it has nothing to do with a bad sex partner, and everything to do with a woman's brain. Men's orgasms are centered in the physical, and women's in the psychological. There's a million studies about this–look it up. The brain studies they've done show that a woman's emotional center has to completely shut down to experience orgasm, so if there is any anxiety, stress , distraction etc etc, it ain't gonna go good.
    Stop blaming the men–most of them are good guys doing the best they can-they can't read your mind, and they certainly can't shut it off for you either. That requires work on your own part–whether that takes therapy or a lot of alcohol is all individual LOL

    You can call me crazy, but I think the obesity epidemic and sex drive are positively correlated.

I go to the gym or workout, and because I am in shape and don't push myself to the brink of exhaustion when I do exercise, I can still be horny when I get out. But sitting around all day watching Grey's Anatomy and eating ice cream while you fantasize instead of acting on improving your own health does not improve your sex drive.

    This study just offers evidence of what most men already suspected. My partner goes thru spells of greatly reduced sexdrive, usually brought on by stress from her work and school schedule.

    Most guys who bitch about their wife or girlfriend being frigid just need to make some mixed drinks and engage in a nonsexual fun activity for a while. Playing cooperative video games works for us given that we're a slightly nerdy couple, but I'd imagine watching a comedy or talking about non-work and family related events would work just as well. By bed time she's relaxed and happy enough that sex is more appealing.

    A big tip on whether or not sexual advances are even remotely welcome usually comes in kisses for all our new players. If you're in a private place and you get a light peck on the lips that should tell you something. Same for a French kiss aimed at your tonsils.

    This article makes me furious. As a man who nearly lost his marriage due to his wife's libido issue, I can say without a doubt there are drugs out there that can have a verifiable effect on a woman's sex drive. Yes, it is true that other (non-physical) factors can have an effect on a person's libido, but why is this newsworthy? Am I missing something, or has the placebo effect not been shown to exist in many studies.... involving many types of therapeutic applications.

    Female sexual issues (without a psychological cause) are common, and can often be traced back to a hormonal imbalance... specifically inadequate levels of testosterone. Unfortunately, this issue is poorly understood in a society that will embrace 50 different ways to erect a limp penis, while scoffing at the thought of having the same applications for a woman. Any study that suggests the problem may be "all in her head" is irresponsible, and one-sided. The problem of low female libido needs to be addressed as a real medical issue, and only then, can we hope get couples on the same page in terms of sexual desire. After all, the last time I checked, it took two.

      This is very true. As women age (And as men age), the sex drive lessens. The lack of hormones is most certainly to blame.

    @mediaisajoke, you did ex-GF a favor... goodbye and good riddance to you! 😉
    @Mike, your male chauvinist pig salutation says it all... see @OinkOink below... p.s., you two should get married. :-0
    @OinkOink, your handle says it all... mcp aboveis your pig-in-waiting. p.s., I'm an athlete/martial artist who can kick 'your fatness' from one end of the universe to the other LOL.
    @ugadog, any psychologist will tell you that a guy who talks about how great he is with women... isn't. };-0

    Now quit your sniveling, little boys, and stay as far away from women as possible... you are toxic dumpsites! RFLAO

    The permanent cure for a women who doesn't like sex is "DIVORCE!" They all have a MIRACULOUS rebound in sexual arousal after getting rid of the husband..

    Just another male chauvinistic study about women's sexual "problems." If a woman isn't interested in sex, it's usually because she's not meeting attractive men. Our culture doesn't encourage men to look their best, stay in good shape, be charming, have good ethics, be non-sexist and so on.

      you confirm everything the study says. women are too damn picky, a man would blank a fat b1tch if deprived enough. but to get female attention, a man needs to be a superman, which is just impossible. if nothing turns women on, then they don't have a sex drive. men and women are pretty much equal now, if equality doesn't give them the sexual drive women crave, nothing will.

      wow that's some seriously shallow garbage. Don't assume the rest of the female community has your problem.

      Actually, women aren't picky at -all-, relatively-speaking. Guys can get laid by being funny, smart, wealthy, etc. They don't actually have to be immensely physically-attractive. Consider the opposite: would you screw a fattie who had a "good personality"? If so, my hat off to you, because you are a better man than I.

      Since when does a guy need to be 'good looking', 'witty', or 'funny' to get laid? Explain all these gross frat boy types banging women.
      The truth is, our culture is incredibly shallow. Both men and women tend to be about as deep as a rain puddle on the curb. It's getting to the point now that we're just going to stop having s@x and relationships with human beings because they don't fit our towering and inhuman standards, and go for custom made s@x bots instead. "What, you're telling me you have cellulite? GTFO, you fat freak!" "You're turning 30? Go away! Too old!" "You don't look like you're on the cover of Playboy/Playgirl 24/7? You're just not trying hard enough! Go to the surgeon and get a makeover!" "You don't have rock hard abs and a bubble butt?! You must not care about yourself!"
      Ah, the joys of living in a (plastic)beauty obsessed modern Western 'civilization'.

    @ tiger woods... You made me LOL also!!
    @ Liberty Queen... Geez, hunny darlin', You sound like a jaded, pissed off girl. Also like the bitchy, always right, in yo' face, arrogant type that has to always try to prove that she can kick someone elses ass. Chill out, little woman, lay the vibrator aside for awhile, and who knows... you might even decide you kinda like men a little. Oh, and yes I do indeed know where the G-spot is. And the clitoris. And love them both, and treat them fabulously. Just ask my wife. LOL!
