Have I "read up on it?" Not really, I don't think...but I am at least somewhat aware of that, and also of the supposed differences between men and women, how women expect a bond and how men don't and all that bullshit. . . . If women are the only ones who use sex to feel connected and close, then what the hell am I doing with a penis? And why doesn't my wife have one?
No, no, I believe LR is referring to the chemistry in the brain and hormonal shifts that happen during arousal and orgasm, etc. -- dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, endorphins, all very interesting stuff! What was that link? ... oh yeah:

LR has a few more links, I believe. Reading about all that does put a different spin on things!
