    KDM prescribes injections of this for his patients as a kind of painkiller. They're painful and expensive. It is more effective and pleasurable to have a quick bonk instead!

    In my former role as an antenatal teacher and breastfeeding counsellor i was always banging on about oxytocin - the love hormone.

    Re psycopaths apparently they lack an developed empathy centre in the brain.

    Oh to bad I assume that won't be of muc use if theres something lese missing in psychopaths.
    The painkiller thing is interesting. I knew that it was shown that percieved pain is lower if you laugh and are happy etc. But I didn't think about the connection to this ^^

    Hi, all.

    Dr. Jorge Flechas has used oxytocin for several years for fibromyalgia and other conditions.
