Another sex pill in the pipeline 

If you are one of the millions of Americans who cringes a bit when the erectile dysfunction ads run endlessly through sports broadcasts, then this news will not make you happy:

In the hunt for a new sex pill for men, Johnson & Johnson has staying power.

The health-products giant hasn't given up on what it hopes will become the first drug approved for premature ejaculation, even though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration rejected it in 2005. Regulators questioned whether helping men last longer during sex was a clear medical benefit, and may have had concerns about side effects of the drug, dapoxetine.

God forbid ESPN sells ad space for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation drugs in the same broadcast. The already frayed self-worth of the American male will be reduced to tatters. MTV, on the other hand, must be very excited.

MORE: The clinical trial for this was hilarious:
Dapoxetine was tested in men who, on average, had been ejaculating about one minute after the start of intercourse, as measured by their partners with stopwatches. Some doctors say a normal range is between three and seven minutes.

So, the trial participant's partner clicked a stopwatch when he ejaculated? The things some women will do for science...

News like this only fuels Michael Moore-ism. Is it any wonder a lot of folks (wrongly) think thinks Big Pharma is pushing stuff like this to line the pockets of CEOs and private equity robber barons by selling this stuff..rather than addressing long LONG standing diseases like malaria, even cancer,in a responsible way. Oh well. You don't need a pill. Just squeeze and count to ten, says the Playboy Advisor. Better yet, get your spouse/partner to do it for you...

It's no wonder the birthrate seems to be in free fall in so many places.

But pills are unnecessary. All a guy in this predicament needs to do is scream like Tarzan. It works like a charm.

Michael Moore does not have a timed episode. Mounting is his problem for 2 reasons. The 1st is highly visible, the 2nd is almost invisible.

3-7 minutes? Must be conservatives who have this problem. We free-love liberals have learned to last much longer. Must be what you're trying to compensate for by insisting on lasting longer in Iraq.

Oh. I thought you were going to say "The things some women will do for love." :-)

Yea -- 30 years worth of drug ravaged neurons will do that.

Interesting choice of headline, TH.

Well realistically, she could just hit the stop button when he either A) rolled over and fell asleep, or B) bolted for the front door.

The time difference would be trivial. :)

Why a new pill? All you need is some over-the-counter Sudafed or Benedril.

These antihistamines will reduce the hair-trigger reaction.

Just read some of the medical info on them.ca

The most widespread sexual dysfunctions in men are ejaculation dysfunctions, erectile dysfunction and loss of sexual desire and these are prevalent in the aged people though men of all ages are susceptible to such dysfunctions. http://www.levitrabliss.com/
