‘Cuddle Drug’ could become Viagra’s competitor

Researchers believe a drug used to help a mother bond with her baby may help men in the bedroom. Researchers believe Oxytocin, nicknamed “Cuddle Drug” may improve a man’s sex life.

A recent article in Mail Online says, “The so-called  ‘cuddle hormone’, can dramatically improve male sexual performance, researchers have found – producing results on a par with Viagra.”

Oxytocin, a natural hormone

Oxytocin is a hormone found in men and women and is triggered during sex and attraction.

Extra doses of this drug have been given to breastfeeding mothers to ensure the mother and the baby bond. Now, researchers are trying the drug in a new arena: sexual encounters.

By spraying Oxytocin into the nose a California man, who was the subject of a recent study, said the drug did wonders for his sex life. “His libido went from ‘very weak’ to ‘somewhat strong’, his sexual arousal from ‘somewhat difficult’ to ‘somewhat easy’ and the act itself was easier to perform and more satisfying,” the study stated.

As good as Viagra?

“These findings support trials directly examining the use of Oxytocin to treat problems in this vital aspect of human function, especially in the context of stable, loving relationships,” the report concluded.

The subject involved in this small study had tried Viagra and had little success with the drug. Researchers believe with continued studies there could be a market for this medication, especially for men who don’t see improvement through other lifestyle medications like Viagra or Cialis.
