Drug Companies Develop Pill For Premature Ejaculation

While women await drugs to help boost their libidos, pharmaceutical companies have developed pills that help aroused men wait a little longer.

Priligy, a new drug developed by Johnson & Johnson, is designed to help men who experience premature ejaculation (PE) last longer in bed. The pill, on sale in nine countries, awaits approval from the FDA before it can assume its rightful place in popular culture alongside Viagra. Meanwhile, other drug companies are developing similar anecdotes to early male orgasms.

One drug company rep explained to the New York Times: "PE is more prevalent than ED (erectile dysfunction). One in three men actually have the condition." But, as one psychiatrist points out, if one in three men ejaculate "early" is that really a disorder that needs a drug treatment? Either way, I guess it won't be too hard to find a spokesman!

What? Why a 'pill' for premature ejaculation? I thought that's what Jack Daniels was for.... I'll be holding out for my loverbots and holodecks then....

I agree with everyone else. Also seriously, why can't we work on some more stuff for women here?

Male birth control, please? I'm sure this will be covered by insurance, mondaymoos... apparently it's fixing something that doesn't work right, as opposed to keeping something from working right. Spokesperson for this though? Who wants their name on PE? I vote for an armada of anonymous geeks with pocket protectors... they should at least make the commercials funny. Geek Squad goes around to random male models offering up PE drugs like breath mints... now there's a commercial!

$50 on this being covered by health insurance, while my birth control still costs an arm and a fucking leg.
