CBC | Radio-Canada Documentary Sex, Drugs and Middle Age

Over the last 30 years, perfecting the male body and sustaining the male libido has become a cultural preoccupation. In 1998 Viagra hit the market. Now, after hearing so much about estrogen, you're about to hear a lot more about testosterone. Men are lining up for refueling in hopes it will keep them virile and forever masculine. It's a parallel story to the wonders of estrogen replacement for women, which promised to keep them "feminine forever" back in the 1960s. And men who were once considered immune from the cultural effects of aging, are now the fastest growing consumers of plastic surgeries and beauty products. Sex, Drugs and Middle Age will be your cultural guide through the maze of menopause for both sexes. This is a revealing, entertaining and sometimes humorous look at popular culture through the eyes of the menopause industry.
