Mother Nature must be a man. Who else would play this mid-life trick on women? Women lose their sex drive and men get Viagra. I’d like to thank the pharmaceutical industry for their complicity. I’m assuming if any women worked on the miraculous erectile dysfunction drugs they were under 40. Girls, girls, girls, you will live to regret it. I’d also like to thank doctors who are handing these pills out like M&Ms. And last, but not least, hats off to that drag queen Mother Nature, for menopause. Now the world of relationships is on tilt.
Listen carefully midlife boys. (And by the way, wasn’t the new Porsche enough?) Women do not lose their sex drive on purpose. It’s business, not personal. So don’t go stomping around all pissed off and pouty that your wife, significant other or girlfriend is denying you sex to be mean. Looking at some of the middle-aged men out there, I suggest they deny you food. Women aren’t thinking about sex and it’s no fault of their own; their hormones are gone, vanished, hasta la vista, bye-bye. Hey, Pharmaceutical Companies, how about making hormone replacement drugs that are safe? I personally would like my skin tone back. Did you think I’d say sex life?
My friend, Jack, called to tell me about an article he read regarding a libido-enhancing drug they’re working on for older women. Huh? Isn’t it possible these women are already happy with their lives? So what if they’re not fantasizing about sex. Ironically, my male friends have no interest in having sex with an older woman or even one their age. Well what’s a girl to do? Cry? Call a plastic surgeon? How about sex with a younger guy? That sounds like hormone therapy to me and just might perk up the old libido.
