A little spritz and away you go: An Australian university has developed an aerosol testosterone spray that appears to increase the sex drive in women with low libido. Researchers at Monash University in Melbourne found that while the spray didn't increase the frequency of sexual encounters, it "increased significantly the number of episodes reported as satisfactory." The average increase was "two extra satisfactory events per month," according to women's health professor Susan Davis. Although usually associated with men, testosterone is present in both men and women and affects the part of the brain responsible for sexual motivation. The only drawback of the spray was that some patients reported an increase in body hair. And a sudden desire to watch football on the weekend? Just curious.
