Real Time's Bill Maher explained to his audience what the new female sex pill and religion have in common during his New Rules segment this Friday night.

MAHER: And finally New Rule, someone has to break it to the world's religions that they have something in common with Addyi, the new female sex pill. Yes that's right. There's now a pill that makes women want more sex, but can also lower blood pressure and put you to sleep. It was invented by Bill Cosby.

Now, I know what you're asking. Bill, what could a female sex pill possibly have in common with religion? Well, both try to tell you that your sexual urges as you feel them are just not right and need adjustment.

Maher went onto explain the difference between Addyi and Viagra, and that one is a mood drug, as opposed to the other which helps people who still have the desire for sex, but who have physical problems and issues with blood flow, and the fact that the female drug is being prescribed to treat what is called "sexual desire disorder," which Maher thought was so terribly wrong.

After wondering if we're going to need another drug for the people who don't want to take the sex pill, but need to be made to take it and that makes you "want to want what you don't really want," Maher wondered why people who aren't really that into sex should be made to feel like they have to have sex all the time, and vice versa, why those who want sex all the time should be made to feel as though they're doing something wrong.

Which brought Maher right back around to the issue of religion and Josh Duggar and him blaming the cheating on his wife that was discovered following the Ashley Madison hack on a porn addiction.

MAHER: Oh Josh. Dude, you're just horny. I'd say the genie is out of the bottle, but I'm afraid you'd bang the genie... or the bottle.

But look, Josh Duggar, like lots of people just wasn't cut out to me married. Isn't it a bit weird that in a country that celebrates every alternative gender and sexual choice, we're still judging and micro-managing straight sex. Caitlyn Jenner gets up at the ESPYS in a dress with tits and a dick under it and there's not a dry eye in the house. Somehow with gay and trans-gendered people, we celebrate, as we should, the concept of I am who I am. I was born this way. This is my truth. Well great.

But could we get the same deal for the other 95 percent of us? If you don't want to fuck your husband, then fine. And if you want to fuck a lot of people, fine too. Whatever you want should be fine, because when it come to sexual freedom, I'll have what she's having.

Since he brought up Josh Duggar and Bill Cosby, it would have been nice to see that qualified with the words "between consenting adults" but as far as leaving people alone when it comes to their private sexual preferences and being tired of seeing people stick their nose in the middle of it in the name of religion, I agree with him.
