Is the Cuddle Hormone the New Viagra?

Oxytocin has been linked for the first time to an increase in libido and sexual performance in men.

Often marketed as a hormone that increases trust and affection in women for men, now researchers believe that the cuddle hormone could have as powerful effect on the male sexual libido as the multi-billion dollar prescription drug viagra.

The researchers gave men doses of oxytocin spray twice daily, and found that the men were not only more affectionate to friends and colleagues, they noticed a marked improval in sexual performance.

How it works is not clear, but some studies suggested that oxytocin levels rise naturally during arousal. The hormone is also thought to interact with the dopamine system, which ‘rewards’ sexual activity.

The study, ‘Dramatic Improvement in Sexual Function Induced by Intranasal Oxytocin’, was reported in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Twitter and the Cuddle Hormone

An American researcher has claimed that Twitter, and other social networking sites, can trigger the cuddle hormone oxytocin being released in the brain, just as it is by real relationships.

Paul Zak, neuroeconomist at Claremont Graduate University in California, tested this recently on a journalist Adam Penenberg who was writing about Zak’s work for this Fast Company article.

Zak tested Penenberg’s blood before and after he used Twitter for 10 minutes, sending and receiving tweets the whole time. He found that oxytocin levels went up substantially, and that stress hormones went down.

This is great news, because other research has shown that people are more empathetic when their oxytocin levels go up, Zak said. They are more kind, honest and fair to others. In other words, people may be nicer – at least for about an hour – after they’ve been interacting with social media, he said

It’s also good news for those who spend as much time interacting online as offline, something that others have been criticising as being unhealthy for some time.

Mother’s phone call raises oxytocin as much as a hug

A mother’s phone call can raise oxytocin levels and reduce stress levels in the child as much as a hug can, according the latest research into the cuddle hormone.  At least the study found it was true for girls.  The researchers chose to ignore sons because ‘oxytocin responses are stronger in females’.   A pity as the recent study linking oxytocin to increased empathy in males shows the interest in the role that oxytocin can have in male behaviour.

There might be an evolutionary reason for other responses, experts believe. A threatened male is free to choose between “fight or flight”, but this may not be so easy for a female who is pregnant or caring for offspring. It might be that females alleviate stress by making the peace.

Seltzer is investigating whether other forms of communication, such as text messaging, have an effect on oxytocin and hopes to expand the research into animals.

Spray Version of Cuddle Hormone may ‘cure autism’

Researchers into the remarkable properties of oxytocin have delivered even more exciting news recently, announcing that the spray version of the cuddle hormone may alleviate the symptoms of social awkwardness found in patients with mild forms of autism.

Speculation has been taking place for sometime that oxytocin, a hormone that helps people to bond and emphasise with each other (thus the ‘cuddle hormone’) may form the basis of future treatments of the autistic.  This study, carried out by a French government department, is the first to establish that oxytocin does indeed appear to alleviate the symptoms of autistic patients.
The findings offer hope to the 500,000 people in Britain with autism and related disorders.

Current treatment is limited to drugs that control aggression and behavioural therapies.

Health Benefits of a cuddle

According to family therapist Virginia Satir, cuddling is essential to health, even to survival.

Cuddles have been linked to a variety of health benefits including lowered blood pressure, better overall mood, even to higher IQ in children who recieve sufficient hugs.

Physical benefits are not the only things passed on in a hug. Hugs also help people to bond on an emotional level. Hugs increase feelings of safety, security, trust, strength, healing, self worth, belonging, happiness, and appreciation.

Why oxytocin makes men cuddle their babies

Scientists had known for a long time that oxytocin was associated with the affectionate bonds between a mother and her new born baby.  Oxytocin thus quickly became known as the ‘Cuddle Hormone’, promoting touch, affection, protectiveness.  Recently, a plethora of new studies have associated oxytocin with everything from altruism to sexual attractiveness. Now, the possible role that oxytocin might play in making new fathers want to cuddle their babies has finally been investigated, and it appears, established.

Ruth Feldman, a psychology professor at an Israeli university and assistant professor at Yale, measured the oxytocin levels of 80 different couples and found that not only mothers but also fathers post increases after the birth of their child.

The more the men in the study cuddled their babies, the more their oxytocin levels rose. “It’s like a feedback loop,” Dr. Feldman says. “The more you touch, the more oxytocin you have; the more oxytocin, the more you touch. But you need to initiate this feedback loop, by holding and touching and kissing your baby.” Also, she found a link between the oxytocin levels of partners. Mothers’ levels predicted fathers’ levels later on, “as if fathers somehow get biologically attuned to their wives,” Dr. Feldman says.

Why women need cuddling..and oxytocin!

The Examiner explains why cuddling their partners is so important to women.  Essentially, cuddling is a survival need for women.  Women need to establish an emotional bond with whoever they are having sex with, otherwise they are in danger of being left carrying any resulting baby.  Cuddling raises oxytocin in women and makes them feel good because it is a signal that that emotional bond and commitment has been achieved.

A 2006 study by the Berman Center for Women’s Health in Chicago showed that couples who regularly indulge in spontaneous, non-sexual physical affection are more satisfied with their relationships.  So cuddle if you would like your woman to feel closely connected and peaceful with you. You will see the benefits in terms of increased sexual satisfaction as she appreciates you more for understanding her cuddling needs.
