The longer humans have been on this planet and evolved, the more sex has too, and with everyone being so busy these days sometimes we just can’t muster the energy to make our loved ones feel special and our sex lives take a hit. Being the modernised humans we all are, we have done what we usually do and turned to science for the solution. But can science actually improve your sex life?
Arousal is the Brain Sending Signals to the Pelvis
When we feel aroused, something has stimulated pleasure hormones in our brains, which then sends signals to specific receptors in the pelvic region. Blood vessels dilate and the heart beats faster, mix these two things with a mass increase in hormones and you’re having a very good time. Naturally, being addicts by nature, humans have desperately tried to increase this biological response but so far we haven’t had much luck.
There is no Definite Proof Aphrodisiacs Work
There is common belief that eating certain foods like oysters and dark chocolate increase your arousal and make you want sex, unfortunately there is nothing that states this actually works, and most people are consuming those slippery animals for no reason.
We know the drug Viagra causes men to get erections, but even so, this is just increase blood flow, there is no hormone influx or anything that makes men actually feel aroused.
Science May Have the Answer
Once again, science may have found the secret, and it was, as usual, completely by accident. While trying to find a sunless tanning agent, scientists accidentally gave a test rat an 8 hour erection while testing the skin pigmentation protein, melanocortin. Lessening this dose proves to fully arouse males and females, in both the physical and hormonal sense, basically it worked better than an aphrodisiac ever could.
Different versions of this drug are now being tested in the hopes of curing some sexual disorders and it appears to be pretty promising, so hold onto your oysters for now, something much better is coming soon.
