New Drug Boosts Sex Life By Stimulating Sexual Arousal And Romance

Scientists have developed a new drug that will boost sex life by stimulating brain activity for sexual arousal and romance. Kisspeptin, the new hormone-based, is a naturally occurring chemical that promotes the release of other chemicals linked to reproduction  in the body. It has been found effective also for decreasing negative mood.

The research of the drug involced 29 healthy heterosexual young men injected withh the hormone. The results show that it enhanced the brain’s response to sexual and romantic images of couples. MRI scans showed enhanced activity in parts of the brain affected by sexual arousal and romance.

The same effect was not observed when the volunteers viewed non-sexy images. Scientists believe that the new drug boosts brain circuits linked to sex and love. These of course play a huge part in human sexual and reproduction aspects, but so far, they have limited study on the role that the brain and emotional processing play in the process, the Imperia College London  says.

“Ultimately, we are keen to look into whether kisspeptin could be an effective treatment for psychosexual disorders, and potentially help countless couples who struggle to conceive,” the team said. The study, whose findings are reported in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, plans to study the wider effects of kisspeptin in a large group that involves women as well as men. Another interesting discovery was that kisspeptin also seemed to be involved in regulating mood and reducing negativity, suggesting that it may help combat depression, the Daily Mirror  says.

According Dr Alexander Comninos, co-author of the study, kisspeptin boosts sexual and romantic brain activity as well as improving mood. “This raises the interesting possibility that kisspeptin may have uses in treating psychosexual disorders and depression," he said. New researches are underway to study extensively the positive effects of the new drug and its possible applications.
