The “bonding” hormone definitely has more to it, especially if you are a man. According to a study, if Oxytocin is taken before love-making, it can result in an intense orgasm and greater satisfaction.
This makes a case for this hormone to treat people with low sexual desire or those who are suffering from erectile dysfunction, researchers said.
“Oxytocin may alter specific aspects of sexual experience and partner interactions in healthy couples,” researchers from Hannover Medical School in Germany were quoted as saying.
During the study, 29 couples took either Oxytocin nasal spray or a placebo spray just before sex in their home.
After sex, they penned down their experiences in a questionnaire.

Researchers found that although it had no role on sex drive or arousal, it resulted in a more intense orgasm, especially for men.
Men said they were more sexually satisfied than normal circumstances while some women also reported their increased ability to share sexual desires.
The study appeared in the journal Hormones and Behavior.
