You're right Cory. Oxytocin is produced by touch, including cuddling. The primary hormone for men is vasopressin with oxytocin as secondary. Our physiology is beautifully and intricately created in relation to our bonding mechanisms, for pair bonding and social cohesion. Which is one of the reasons for me science only enhances and supports my belief in God (an entirely different discussion lol). We are given the gifts and charisms we need to fulfill our purpose to love and care and build with each other - friendships, societies, couples, marriages, families. And, like all of our gifts we have to understand them and respect them because they can be misused intentionally or not. But, when used correctly what a beautiful gift and world we can build . Lauren
Well said, Lauren. Lots of good information and wisdom shown. Thank you for sharing.
