Modern science is developing a new miracle cream

In the good old days before we lost our innocence, sex was a simple fun thing to do. When someone noticed the cause and effect of producing babies, relationships became a series of choices. Curiously, modern couples are choosing not to have children. In many developed countries, the birth rate is falling below the level necessary to maintain the population. The reasons are complicated but mainly flow from the change in gender roles. Instead of men marrying women to stay home and raise children, women are making careers for themselves and delaying marriage until later in life. They are happy as DINKS - Dual Income, No Kids. Add to this to stress of modern life which puts pressure on relationships and, suddenly later in life, some men find their erections failing when they are expected to fire the bullets to produce pregnancy. What seemed a natural and uncomplicated process of young people producing children has now been converted into a race against time when the couple finally decide to stop the contraceptive measures.

Before the arrival of oral medication, the quite common failure of erections in ageing men was a real problem that could only be "cured" either by quite painful injections or the use of embarrassing pieces of vacuum equipment better suited to the laboratory than the bedroom. Wives were therefore left with the task of manually trying to encourage a sufficient hardness to achieve penetration. In future the same massage may have a rather better chance of success thanks to developments at Yeshiva University. In this instance, the linkage of Albert Einstein's name to a College of Medicine seems to have produced a great scientific step forward. Dr Kelvin Davies has been leading a team to develop a topical cream that can be rubbed into the penis and produce an erection. This is the first time that so-called nanoparticles have been used to treat erectile dysfunction. The idea is that these tiny particles will pass through the skin and be directly absorbed into the penis. Up to now, the team has been trying out the product on rats and all involved have found satisfactory results. Now the team are planning to move on to human testing.

In theory, the direct application of a substance with the same effect of viagra will have more immediate and consistent results. As it is, a not insignificant percentage of men find viagra ineffective. Often, these are the men who have psychological rather than physical problems. They find the delay between taking the pill and the results disturbing. Hanging around for thirty minutes or more adds to performance anxiety. The researchers hope that rubbing on a cream during foreplay will be more stimulating and more likely to produce the desired effect. Assuming enough couples come forward to allow the human trials to go ahead and the results are as hoped, this cream could be on the market in about two tears time. Until then, couples will have to rely on tried and trusted viagra. It has been the dominant brand for ten years and counting. It will take something special to persuade men to move on to a cream even though the rubbing in could be pleasurable in itself.
