Longing for the rush of excitement you get from seeing the love of your life, holding your kids tightly, or having strong intimacy in the bedroom? You’re not alone. In fact, as with many of the hormones and chemicals our bodies produce, oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone,” is a chemical that naturally decreases as we age. So if you need a little help, you’re in luck. As part of our continued effort to help men perform their best, Revibe Men’s Health is excited to now offer prescriptions of oxytocin.

What is Oxytocin?

At its basic function, oxytocin is a hormone that plays a key role in the childbirth process for women and aids in male reproduction. However, studies have also shown that oxytocin plays a deeper role in our everyday behaviors and social interactions. In addition to the relationship between oxytocin and testosterone, oxytocin can impact your sexual function, your relationship, and social behaviors.

Oxytocin biological effects may include:

An Increase in Sexual Function

  • Sexual receptivity
  • Increased sexual desire
  • Increased pleasurable sensations and more intense orgasms
  • Decreased latency to orgasmic release

Benefits to Your Relationship

  • Increase in bonding
  • Increase in intimacy and closeness
  • More trust in the relationship
  • Decrease in Social Anxiety
