What happens when dopamine goes whacko?
Dopamine is a neurochemical that regulates feelings of lustful attraction, desire, pleasure, excitment and reward. When the One shows up, the feeling of running amok like a zombie, intoxicated is connected with it. It also can turn a person addicted when releases a group of neurotransmitters called PEAS (phenylethylamines) which affect your mood just like amphetamies. Does the movie "Fatal Attraction" comes to mind?
In addition, during the first stages of attraction adrenaline is also running wild. That is: your heart races, the body sweats, the mouth quivers and "RUSH" is the only word that comes to mind! Dr. Helen Fisher calls it "the intolerable neural itch."
Hm . . . "the intolerable neural itch . . . "
THE BOGUS PIPELINE TEST
the great male milestone!
Known as "andropause" or "climateric." The Romans considered 63 years old deadly mark. When they survive it they congratulated each other the annus climatericus maximo. . . . Is also called PADAM (Partial Androgen Defict Disorder in Aging).
The subject only began to be talked about in 1997, with the surgency of the wondrous "blue pill." One might say, Viagra was a "milestone" for the male ego. While women's wellness focuses on women's "insufficiency."
Speaking of facing the truth
A recent study in Germany showed that testosterone is the new gauge of male honesty. The most he takes it, the sweeter and honest he will be.
Will women fall for the relationship between the "more Viagra" the more honesty connection? Researchers also admit that one of the problems with hormone data through the years has been that most experiments have been done on rats! Let's face it: it's easier to twirl or castrate a rat's little one than a man's, to see or prove what hormones do, don't you agree?
The Bogus Pipeline test?
Is a fake poligraph test used to fool participants into truthfully responding to emotional/affective question. The test is aimed at measuring a person's attitude toward "certain stimuli" such as sex. The name of the test is SDI (Sexual Desire Inventory and still is used by psychologists today. Maybe a "hocus-pocus" should be better than "bogus"? Bogus sounds deceiving, don't you think?
On a happy note: when the male is under the power of Viagra, science said that he is more prone to tell the truth! Again, will you fall for that one?
What about idealizing under the spell of serotonin?
Yes, when you fall in love serotin sees that your thoughts begin to change, as you begin to idealize the One, magnifying his or hers virtues.
Leave it to Freud to state: "We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love"
As if that's not enough, be aware of the state of your endorphins. With their help love makes you blind and, that blindness is what keeps you in love! If they are whacko they help you to stay in an abuse relationship.
From what you eat, to your body scent, to how you move, we are an open book into a line of painful or embarassing surprises. After all, don't forget that you are a mammal. A supposedly critical thinking human mammal . . . So, you better use it as a self-defense mechanism and don't just accept cultural beliefs in telling you that your are exceptional and will be untouched by those demises!
Deconstructing the dinner date
COURTSHIP FEEDING: is common for a male to lure the female with delicious morsels to convince her to choose HIM to mate with. It predates the era of the dinosaurus, so forget questioning intentions.
A little of Latin to keep in mind though:
"Bella, mulier qui hominum allicit et accipit eos per fortis."
Translation of the definition of WAR:
"War, a woman who lures and takes them by force."
I am still diggesting this one.
Speaking of food
Watermelon seems to be a miracle fruit! Why bother with Viagra when they say when you eat plenty of this healthy treat, you'll feel the same effect" This summer stunner not only has a beautiful color but relaxes blook vesssels and improves circulation
It has citrulini, the amino acid that is converted into arginine, a precursor to nitric oxide, which helps in the dilatation of blood vessels. And has plenty of lycopene!
Have a great 4th of July!
Speaking of sniff
Gustav Jager (1832-1917) a German doctor and hygienist was the first to put forward the idea of human pheromones. As he was ahead of its time, the issue was closed by 1930.
Later studies on the way people salut each other and smell affects humans emotions, Zoologist Michael Stoddart, autor of The Scented Ape, explains that humans have denser concentrations of scent-producing glands in their skin than almost any other mammal.
In short, the French perfume will never be as perfect as your own human smell on the quest to attract the One. Who says life is fair? The ultimate male crawler has the perfect "nostril" to find the perfect mate.
THE MUSK DEBATE
Still digesting my finding
During my research about the etymology of "manipulation" I found the description of WAR in Latin . . .
Translation: "War, a woman who lures men and takes them by force."
Question: why women continue to be "punished" because of men genetic use of violence?
A bogus pipeline technique
The "Bogus Pipeline" technique was introduced by professor Harold Sigall in the spring of 1967 and continues to be used today by psychologists.
