PHILADELPHIA
CHARLOTTE McLAUGHLIN was married for 35 wonderful years. “He was the only partner in my life, a terrific guy,” said Ms. McLaughlin, a retired cosmetics consultant. But in 2001, her husband, Bill, died of heart disease at 60, and to help cope with the loss, Ms. McLaughlin, who was in her 50s, began taking an antidepressant.

Then in 2004 she met another terrific guy, a 65-year-old widower named Sanford, and felt an attraction, though she worried about keeping up. Antidepressants can inhibit sex drive. “I was afraid of pain at my age, after three or four years of not having … you know, relations.”

So Ms. McLaughlin did what a lot of middle-aged women here do when they are not ready to give up on sex. She visited the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute, which treats about 200 women a week, mostly from the Philadelphia-New York City corridor, but some from as far away as Canada, South America and Britain.

Two ex-consultants bring a bankrupt ointment maker into America’s bedrooms.

Pharmacologist Martin Crosby spent much of the 1990s developing a female counterpart to Viagra. Crosby had made a pile with patents on two pain-management drugs, for patients with terminal cancer and multiple sclerosis. Five years and $1 million later he came up with Zestra–a topical potion, made from evening primrose and borage oils and two extracts, that enhances sexual stimulation. Sensing a hit, Younis Zubchevich, a New York investment banker, agreed to help Crosby bring Zestra to the frustrated masses. He rustled $3 million and hired a mostly male management squad; in 2006 he raised $6 million more in a convertible-preferred stock deal that valued the Charleston, S.C. company, called Zestra Laboratories, at $35 million.
