IGNORES WOMEN’S SEXUAL HEALTH, SAYS PASSION PARTIES
Pharmaceutical Companies Design Dapoxetine to Eliminate Premature Ejaculation in Men, Yet Neglect Sexual Solutions for Women LAS VEGAS, May 27, 2005 – This week, at an annual meeting of the American Urological
Association, dapoxetine was unveiled to prevent premature ejaculation in men. While pharmaceutical companies continue to forge ahead with new drugs to improve men’s sexual health, they largely overlook women’s concerns. As a result, the new wonder drugs are doing little to increase the frequency of intercourse in marriages. Many female partners remain uninterested in sex. Up to 40 percent of marriages suffer from a lack of sexual desire. With men wanting more intimacy, and women wanting less, the sexual chasm is growing, causing friction and feelings of rejection. Passion Parties® can help women who want to sexually reconnect with Due to the demands of work, family, and household chores, women are often mentally and physically unprepared for sex. “Women are complex creatures,” says Passion Parties President Patricia Davis. “For women, sex is mental and physical. We have to invest in preparing our minds and bodies for intimacy with our partners.” Davis suggests the following for women who are having difficulty igniting that sexual spark with their loved ones. Solution 1: Use New Sexual Enhancers Designed To Help Women The more orgasms a woman has, the more likely it will be that she will want to have sex. New scientific advances like L-arginine can accelerate and intensify orgasms for the busy woman. When the amino acid is applied topically, in a gel form, it can assist in delivering blood to the genitals. This improves sensitivity and creates greater potential for climax in both women and Solution 2: Use Lubricants to Eliminate Discomfort and Extend Intercourse For women, sex can become uncomfortable because of vaginal dryness. Without enough lubrication, sex can feel raw and sometimes painful. A simple lubricant can heighten sensations New Male Sex Drug Neglects Women’s Needs - 2/3 during intercourse. Many women are unaware that their lubrication levels can easily fluctuate or diminish. Even over-the-counter medications, like antihistamines, can cause a decrease in vaginal fluids. Additional conditions that can cause vaginal dryness include pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and changes during the menstrual cycle. Solution 3: Set Sex As A Priority – Prepare For It by Getting in the Mood Women need to set sex as an important priority. They need to plan to engage in it by getting in the right state of mind. The average woman needs a minimum of 20 minutes of foreplay. Pheromone-enhanced lotions and shower gels can help block out the challenges of the day, allowing women to focus on romance. Pheromones act as mood elevators to create a sexy state of mind. They are natural attractants that signal your partner that you are ready for passion. Additionally, women can use playful products to heighten passion with their mates. An edible massage lotion that is condom-friendly can lengthen foreplay. Passion games, such as body finger paints, can also help a woman shake off the day’s stresses to playfully reconnect with her Founded by women for women in 1994, Passion Parties has been featured on Primetime Live, CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, National Public Radio’s Day to Day, Queer Eye for the Straight Girl, and in O: The Oprah Magazine, Men’s Health, and The New York Times.
