Orgasm-inducing nasal gel, anyone?

Testosterone-laden nose gel helps you reach orgasm, with no unwanted side effects.

Nose gel doesn’t really sound like the kind of thing to add a certain spice to the bedroom, but it could be just the ticket for women who struggle to climax.

Trimel Pharmaceuticals have recently trialled a new product – Tefina – which is designed to combat Female Orgasmic Disorder. It’s a gel which contains a low dose of testosterone (the male hormone that gives guys all their manly qualities) and should be used ‘as required’.

Researchers reckon there’s no need to worry about sprouting extra hair or having your voice drop an octave, because the product hasn’t produced any of those side effects in their latest study.

Female Orgasmic Disorder, in a nutshell, is when the absence or difficulty in achieving a female orgasm causes the sufferer distress or interpersonal issues.

Lead investigator in the clinical trial, Dr Sheryl Kingsberg says, “Female Orgasmic Disorder is the second most prevalent sexual disorder affecting women. Currently, there are no approved pharmacological treatment options, leaving an unmet need that Tefina hopes to remedy.”

Apparently it only took a 0.6mg dose of Tefina to increase the average number of orgasms for each woman. 253 were trialled over a period of 84 days, and were randomly divided into four groups.

Each group was given a varying dosage of the product, and one received a placebo. At the end of the trial, the average for those who had taken Tefina was 2.3 versus 1.7 of those using the placebo.

According to these results, the product could be placed on the market in the very near future.
