Oxytocin: A wonder drug

We already knew that oxytocin
  • Induces labor
  • Bonds mom and baby
  • Is released copiously during orgasm
  • Makes you trust people more, and therefore makes negotiators come to deals easier
  • Allows Aspergers kids to understand other people's intentions
Now it turns out that getting oxytocin in a nasal spray makes men more empathetic. We gotta find a way to put this into the water supply, or at least make it available in an over-the-counter spray. We could wear it like perfume.
