In an interesting study, men were sprayed with oxytocin and it had surprising results. "In this study, researchers used nasal spray to give oxytocin or a placebo to a group of 86 heterosexual men with an average age of about 25.Among men in committed relationships, those who received oxytocin kept a greater distance when approaching or being approached by an unknown female researcher whom they considered attractive, compared to those who received the placebo.Oxytocin had no effect on single men and did not affect the distance the participants kept between themselves and other men, according to the study, which appears in the Nov. 14 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience."

Oh gee whiz... not sure I'd be comfortable having to have my guy squirt a spray up his nose in order to remain faithful! It is an interesting idea, though. I can see someone trying to sneak spray their man.

I just keep picturing the guys who oogle other women when they're walking in the mall with their partner. Instead of getting angry, she could just tell him to take a spritz his love hormone! Cool

OMG-this is hilarious. Images of desperate housewives fighting for the last expensive bottle of "faithful spray" come to mind. Who wouldn't grab a bottle and secretly douse their spouse?
