Does the “Female Viagra” Drug Sound Worthwhile?

Viagra pills

The FDA has been studying the drug that’s meant to be the "female Viagra," – it purports to improve women’s sex lives – for whether or not that claim would be a lie, basically. Their results are…not super impressive:

A 100-milligram daily dosage increased the number of satisfying sexual experiences that women had reported from the previous month — a key benchmark the FDA has set for such drugs — from an average of 2.7 to 4.5, compared with 3.7 among those taking a placebo.

Critics of the drug say that an increase of one time per month is laughable, but proponents say that for many women "the difference is significant." My question, then, is whether or not you all would agree (especially the "you all" who are ladies): would you take a pill designed to improve your sex life, if all you expected from it was one extra roll in the hay a month?
