No "woody" mental pictures at all. I think they stuffed up the name of the drug, and thus should change it, and I think I shall write to them to tell them so!



But if you were going to change it, then Chicken, definitely.

You're really put off by the idea that you are amazing enough to encourage erections in men?
That you are capable of giving helping them achieve great pleasure and joy?

Huh. Most women I know would love the thought of that. wink

I'd rather be associated with getting men up than an old, ill, crinkly soccer player.

(besides, if you changed it, I wouldn't have any idea who you were and would complain about newbies being made mods)

At the end of the day, its just that, a name! No matter what you choose, somewhere along the line, people are going to associate it with something that isn't what you associate it with.

hmm, that looks like gibberish now. What I'm trying to say is, names don't matter in the big scheme of things, you're still you (the person who we all love) underneath whatever name you choose for yourself.

They could have used the name for something alot less pleasant
