Ok, I hope no one takes offense to this message, but my family is planning a trip to Rome and I've heard some rumors about how women are treated in Italy.

And the number of men seeking help for loss of libido has soared 40 per cent in the same period, the figures show. Then men started to come — those who began to realise that Viagra could resolve certain problems but not a loss of desire. Drugs like Viagara have an effect on erections but not on libido.
