The first FDA approved female , Flibanserin(aka Adyii), will be available for consumers this October, 2015!  BUT, before you jump on the band wagon there's a few things about the creation of this drug you might want to hear about...  T&A talk with Liz Canner, director of the documentary film 'Orgasm inc.' about the race for the pharmaceutical's holy grail, how the 'need' for this drug even came into being, and big pharma's influence on our sexuality.  Fascinating, informative and uncomfortably eye-opening.

Watch Orgasm inc. on Netflix, iTunes and everywhere else: www.orgasminc.org

And, check out A's blog, 'Female : A Cautionary Tale'  for a deeper look at Flibanserin's story
