Today, the makers of PT141, a nasal spray which acts as an aphrodisiac are receiving a large amount of press coverage. Seems like everyone is finally catching up with the small New Jersey companies findings concerning PT141.
The precise mechanisms by which PT-141 does its job remain unclear, but the rough idea is this ... where Viagra acts on the circulatory system, helping blood flow into the penis, PT-141 goes to the brain itself. It's not merely allowing a sexual response to take place more easily, it's having an effect, literally, on how a person thinks and feels. It's been found to even improve the female sex drive.
Talk about better living through chemistry!
Palatin Technologies, the New Jersey-based maker of PT-141, has hopes of its own. Once the company gets Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the drug, Palatin plans to market it to the same people targeted by Viagra: male erectile dysfunction patients.
Help For Women
In the wake of Pfizer's failed attempts to prove Viagra works for women and amid growing recognition that it also doesn't work for large numbers of men, these two markets alone could make PT-141 a pharmaceutical blockbuster. Approval for PT141 as a treatment for female sexual dysfunction may follow.
Say hello to the real, first female viagra.
In the Mood For Love
PT141 finds itself in an awckward position however... a drug that makes you not only able but eager and willing isn't going to remain the exclusive property of the severely impaired. As with Viagra, there will be extensive off-label use of PT-141. Fast-acting and long-lasting, packaged in an easily concealed, single-use nasal inhaler, unaffected by food or alcohol consumption, PT-141 seems bound to take its place alongside cocaine, poppers and alcohol in the pantheon of club drugs.
Love Potion #9
While considering the possibilities of PT141 not only improving your sexual performance but also increasing your sex drive has astounding implications.
Could we soon see the effects of love and lust replaced by a nasal spray so commonly seen at the height of allergy season? Will PT141 replace the birds and the bee's and the effect's of good old Mother Nature?
For literally millions of couples ... PT141 could be a blessing for lagging sex life and decreased libido's on both sides of the bed.
On the other hand ... PT141, also known as the "Barbie Drug" is just the type of sexual help innovation ripe for abuse by a general public bent on sexual excesses.
