Instant Sex In A Bottle?-Revolutionary Aphrodesiac That Will Rock Your World

Instant sex in a bottle? PT-141 is a drug in development that reportedly increases sexual desire and performance in men and women. Bremelanotide is a derivative of Melanotan II, a substance originally used as a sunless tanning agent. Researchers noticed that although it did give you a tan, it had unexpected side effects. Those being sexual arousal and spontaneous erections. PT-141 does not come with many of the side effects associated with other ‘sex drugs” because it acts on the brain and not the vascular system.

“With PT-141, you feel good, not only sexually aroused,” reported anonymous patient 007, a participant in a Phase 2 trial, “you feel younger and more energetic.” Said another patient: “It helped the libido. So you have the urge and the desire. . . . You get this humming feeling; you’re ready to take your pants off and go.” And another: “Twice me and my wife had sex twice in one night. I came in [to work] and I just raved about it: ‘Jesus, guys . . . 58 years old and you don’t do that.’ ” Tales of pharmaceutically induced sexual prowess among 58-year-olds are common enough in the age of the Little Blue Pill, but they don’t typically involve quite so urgent a repertoire of humming, throbbing, tingling, and double-dipping. Or as patient 128 put it: “My wife knows. She can tell the difference between Viagra and PT-141.” The precise mechanisms by which PT-141 does its job remain unclear, but the rough idea is this: Where Viagra acts on the circulatory system, helping blood flow into the penis, PT-141 goes straight to the brain itself. And there it goes to work, switching on the same neural circuitry that lights up when a person actually, you know, wants to.
