A new study has found that Sildenafil, the generic name for Viagra, may do more than treat male erectile dysfunction.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have shown that the blue pills also increases release of a key reproductive hormone.

The team reports that Sildenafil increases the amount of oxytocin released by stimulation of the posterior pituitary gland, a small structure directly underneath the brain that regulates hormone levels in response to neural signals.

The finding is the first indication of a chemical mechanism through which erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra may have physical effects besides increasing blood flow to sexual organs, says study author Meyer Jackson, a physiology professor at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health.

Tango’s Take
Wow. Is this why it sort of works for women? Clearly it doesn’t give them erections or there would be more warnings of that on the box. But women get a little turned on with it. Didn’t Kim Cattrall let us all know this on SATC? Most people probably assumed it was a blood flow thing. We did. But this news is great. Oxytocin (not to be confused with Oxycotin, the hillbilly heroin (and heroin is not to be further confused with heroine, like Wonder Woman)) is the snuggle hormone. We could go into a long diatribe about prairie voles and mating for life and tend and befriend, but it’s not worth it. Just know that the little blue pill that your husband uses to make his wang work could be bringing you closer chemically. Let’s not take any of this as gospel, you never know what’s being said by the main Bulgarian news outlet.
