Dr. Davis' Oxytocin Interview.
|Lust, bonding and boundaries|
Love is essentially an abstract concept, much easier to experience than to explain. Experts on the topic divides love into three partly-overlapping stages: lust, attraction, and attachment. They say that lust exposes people to others, romantic attraction encourages people to focus their energy on mating, and attachment involves tolerating the spouse long enough to rear a child into adulthood.
Oxytocin creates feelings of extreme connectedness as well as a feeling of fierce protection. Originally, this was nature's way of making sure that men protected their women and that women protected their child. Plasma concentrations of oxytocin are higher among people who are in love and even higher among people who are falling in love. Research has shown that people in committed relationships experience greater oxytocin swells than people who spread them selves out over a series of short relationships. Moreover, oxytocin is associated with our ability to mediate emotional experiences in close relationships and maintain healthy psychological boundaries. Buy Oxytocin here.
