With sexual health being a integral part of overall health and wellness, oxytocin's ability to improve the physical and mental experience of passion has come to the forefront of sexual health medicine for both men and women.
Oxyctocin is mainly produced in the brain by the posterior hypothalamus but is also created throughout the body by many other cells for many different functions. It has been shown to moderate the ways humans interact with each other including orgasms, maternal bonding, social interaction, emotional memories, pair bonding and anxiety.
At the time of orgasm, oxytocin levels peak at over 350% working to improve all aspects of sex.
Oxytocin's ability to augment the receptivity for sex can result in more powerful orgasms within an hour of administration and multiple orgasms within three hours of therapy. Therapy also acts to increase the bodies ability to produce oxytocin not inhibit it like most hormonal therapies.
It is said that OT improves the sensation of climaxing making it more pleasurable and therefore more memorable to those experiencing it. It has been shown to decrease the amount of time to climax with average lengths of 55 minutes being reduced to five. OT can enable a women to increase the length she spends in full climax improving this time from five seconds to 45 seconds. It can increase the amount of seminal and vaginal fluid by 40% and has the potential to aid in achieving multiple orgasms.
When used for men OT will elicit a more intimate emotional response such as talking and cuddling before and after sex with a reduction in aggression and a feeling of more content sedation.
Overall sex drive is controlled by DHEA in women and Testosterone in men. Both of which work in tandem with oxytocin to paint the overall picture of sexual relations from initiation to the completion. Levels of each of these hormones should be checked when helping to improve ones sexual health
Oxytocin can be given as in injection in the office, or used in the home in the form of a pill, capsule, vaginal suppository, or nasal spray.
