Do women need a sex pill?

"The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is, ’What does a woman want?’ "

This was Sigmund Freud’s response in 1925 to a female protégé, Marie Bonaparte, who sought his guidance. Bonaparte, then in her early 40s, suffered in her own words, from "frigidity."
