I never believed a day would come when I will write this but it seems the day is here already. This is definitely every man’s dream – a spray that turns women on.
Scientists have discovered a potion that really does have an aphrodisiac effect – with women who have inhaled it finding their partners 15 per cent more attractive.
The spray has syntocinon, a synthetic form of the hormone oxytocin, which is naturally released in the brain when people fall in love.
Oxytocin has been known to play a key role during childbirth. It also stimulates milk production in mothers and helps them bond with babies.
The effect of oxytocin on how women perceive men hasn’t really been known until now.
Researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany asked 40 female volunteers to take part in an experiment, reports Daily Mail.
All the women were in their 20s and ‘passionately in love’. Half the women were given the syntocinon nasal spray to inhale, while the others were given a placebo. They were then presented with pictures of men – including their partners.
The women who were previously given placebo were then given the spray as the researchers switched the test group. The other women who were given the spray to inhale were then given the placebo.
The women rated their partners as 15 per cent more attractive after inhaling the spray than after inhaling the placebo.
Women on the pill, however, found their partners no more alluring after inhaling the spray.
The syntocinon spray shouldn’t be bought without prescription because some experts believe it affects the heart rhythm and cause nausea, headaches and even miscarriages.
