It becomes very clear that opponents of HSDD medical treatment options who are holding up "responsive desire" as a rationalization for blocking FDA approval of a first-ever drug for this condition are either being disingenuous, or they have no idea what they are talking about.

The Lower East Side has always been a playground for oddballs, creative types who diverge from Manhattan's mold. It's a quirky neighborhood filled with idiosyncrasies and secrets stuffed in blocks and buildings.

As a menopausal woman, I have a ton of shit going on in my body. What I have been told over and over and over again is that as I age I can anticipate my sex life basically swirling down the toilet along with last night's cost-prohibitive organic, vegan-friendly, heart-healthy supper. I'm not buying it.

It's irksome to me when people reject sex science. Sex science is rational and non-judgmental about sexual diversity and biological phenomena, unlike a lot of the people around us.

Jenny Block

We are told we don't want sex often enough. We want it too much. We are too made-up. We are not made-up enough. We should love our bodies. We should hate our disgusting bodies. And articles like "8 Things That Actually Gross Guys Out in Bed" are examples of the worst of this kind of shaming.

Women have the right to make their own informed choices concerning their sexual health; that gender equality should be the standard when it comes to access to treatments for sexual dysfunction; and that the approval of safe and effective treatments for women's sexual dysfunction should be a priority for action by the FDA.

Ravishly

The most dates I've ever had in a week was five -- all with different guys. It's rare, but I've even had multiple dates on the same day. Coffee? Lunch? Dinner? Drinks? There are too many options. Once, I brought two guys out on a group date. It really was an accident.
