Dr. Jennifer Berman was the golden newcomer to the burgeoning world of women's sexual health when, in 2001, UCLA lured her from Boston University with a prestigious fellowship and groomed her to open its Female Sexual Medicine Center. Her promise of an innovative approach to an array of disorders grouped under the newly minted term "female sexual dysfunction" had rocketed her to the forefront of the hunt for a drug to enhance female sexual pleasure.

Why is your magazine subsidizing the PR efforts of Jennifer Berman ("Dr. Berman's Sex RX," by Anne-Marie O'Connor, Oct. 2)? A cover shot of Berman poolside in suggestive garb only solidifies the celebrity culture that has now invaded the medical community. How does this shameless coverage of an all-too-receptive "media hound" benefit those who truly suffer sexual dysfunctions? It's bad enough that our culture must endure the despicable media stunts of the legal community as its members become fixtures on various talking-head formats.

Two producers rushed around the waiting rooms of the Burbank studio, breathlessly asking after the welfare of their guests. "Are you all right? Do you need anything? Are you thirsty? Hungry?" When one woman asked for water, she was led to a kitchen, where several tables were piled high with vegetables, and Wolfgang Puck's cooking crew worked frantically to prepare dishes for the chef's Food Network show, next in line for the sound stage.

I cringed when I saw the photo of Dr. Jennifer Berman on her horse, which she couldn't "live without" ("Dr. Berman's Sex RX," by Anne-Marie O'Connor, Oct. 2). Pulling so hard on the reins forces the horse to open its mouth and causes "hard mouth." This forms a callous and makes a horse's mouth lose sensitivity, and the horse can be harder to control. Any experienced horseman would know this, or should. Ease up, doctor! Marti Allen Sherman Oaks

The success of the drug Viagra among men has raised the tantalizing question of whether medications might work for women with sexual disorders, too. As many as a dozen drug companies are trying to develop therapies that would improve female libido or arousal. "There are so many options coming down the pike," says Laura Berman, co-director of the new UCLA Female Sexual Medicine Center.

Belt now pins her hopes on Viagra, the hot-selling impotence pill for men.

"Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" is sufficiently original and engaging to be called merely "Havana Nights" but will no doubt get a boost by the reference to the popular 1987 "Dirty Dancing" even though it is actually drawn from the personal experiences of its co-producer-choreographer JoAnn Jansen.
