Viagra may promote feelings of love

People used to believe Viagra promotes sex mechanically, by boosting blood flow to the penis. Now through a new study on rat, researchers found that Viagra can increase the level of oxytocin (also known as Love Hormone) by 300%. Researchers suspect it does the same to people. Earlier studies showed that "oxytocin-sensitive cells in the brain play a role in the neural control of erectile responses." It appears that Viagra can promote love, not just sex.

If one needs Viagra to feel love for someone else, he's got a bigger problem than poor erections.

I can see it now, women lining up to buy Viagra for their virile mates to increase the "love" factor.
