Do Women Really Need Viagra?

All the hype around Viagra and men clamoring to their hands on the blue pill has pushed up the efforts of Pharma Companies to introduce the Viagra for Women. Naturally it makes business sense because the market for this tablet can outstrip the demand that exists in the market of Viagra for men. The market segment may be equal or more than the existing market.

But the essential question that we need to ask is Do women really want and need Viagra? Is women's sense of fulfillment and completeness come from their ability to be sexually active?

Across all societies women play multiple roles in their lifetimes. Apart from being a wife, they play other roles of being mother, daughter, friend and many more. While some women seek fulfillment in being mothers and raising a successful family, many others seek bigger canvas in terms of building careers and businesses. Current trends show that women are far more liberated in thought and action, wanting to pursue opportunities and explore their own capabilities.

When women are managing a lot of things at the same time, juggling home, career, children, husband and other relationships does she really invest her energies in keeping up her sexual drives?

Unlike men, women are not driven only by reason or logic. They are involved in every relationship emotionally. Therefore the relationship between two partners is built on mutual companionship and caring. Taking pride in each others achievements, in supporting one another are far more important factors that she engages with in her life. So where is the place for Viagra for women?
