    A world-first study based in the Waikato giving women a chance to rate the best drug for erectile dysfunction needs more volunteers.

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]The Partner's Preference study, which began last year, has given 35 heterosexual couples an opportunity to compare – Viagra and Cialis – over a six-month period. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]Dr Conaglen said the $300,000 study was the first of its kind in that it asked women – not just men – for their views. [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]"We want to see what impact choices have on couples", she said. [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]"We know some women will prefer the longer-acting drug (Cialis) and some the shorter-acting one (Viagra) but we do not know how many will fall into each group. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]"In earlier studies men have had a chance to express their preference. But this current study is the first to ask the women `What do you think? How does this affect you and your relationship? Which of these drugs works best for you'." [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]Both partners will fill in questionnaires at the start, middle and end of the study, and researchers will interview the women at each stage of the project. [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, MS Sans Serif]The study is being funded by the Sexual Research Charitable Trust.[/FONT]

    They should do a study comparing "other" drugs for sexual satisfaction, I think they would have an abundance of volunteers if they wanted a comparison between, say, GHB and Ecstasy...... lol, drugs supplied by the Sexual Research Charitable Trust of course :crazy

    Just as long as they dont try to use oxy for that purpose, swim would be in. Swim finds that when he's really doped up, he's usually too busy listening to himself talk to be able to get it on.
