Who would have guessed that the best drug men could imagine would be one taken by women?
Scientists are developing a pill which could boost women's libido and reduce their appetite.
The hormone-releasing pill has so far only been given to female monkeys and shrews who displayed more mating behaviour and ate less.
The team from the Medical Research Council's Human Reproduction Unit in Edinburgh believe a human version could be available within a decade.
Of course every brilliant discovery has detractors.
But psychologist Lesley Perman-Kerr said relationship problems usually had a psychological, rather than a biological, basis.
"Some women have problems specific to libido.
"But often if they go off sex, it's more to do with their relationship than their level of libido.
"When couples come to me and they are not having sex, the last thing they want to do is examine their relationship.
"They want to believe that it's nothing to do with their relationship."
Of course a psychologist would see it that way, since the profession makes so much money off of distressed marriages. Why deal with all that complicated relationship mumbo-jumbo when the woman can just take a pill? Another problem soon-to-be-solved by modern pharmaceuticals!
Of course, it could be a hoax.
