Happy Oxytocin Day!
I don't think you have to be a scientist to realize chemical bonding must be absolutely necessary between lovers. After all, how else would we put up with all the extra-curricular crap outside the bedroom if it weren't for some hormone that makes us go ga-ga?
"In humans, oxytocin is thought to be released during hugging, touching, and orgasm in both sexes. In the brain, oxytocin is involved in social recognition and bonding, and may be involved in the formation of trust between people and generosity." -- More at Wikipedia.
So you know what that means: on this day, go stimulate yourself and your lover enough to produce gallons of oxytocin, because you know there are going to be days when you have to tap into the reserves!
