New Nasal Spray Promises to Turn Your Gay Boyfriend Into Someone Who Cares

Oxytocin, the hormone heavily released in women during and after childbirth, and orgasm, can supposedly turn regular dudes into ladyboys. “Researchers in Germany sprayed oxytocin in the noses of 24 men and then showed them emotionally charged images of a crying child, a girl hugging her cat and a grieving man. Their reactions were compared with those of men who had not received the spray. The empathy expressed by the men who had been sprayed with oxytocin was so high it was on a par with what would normally be expected of women.” [Telegraph]
