So sayeth the scientists. *g*
“At an S&M event in Colorado, testosterone was measured in 45 men and women. It increased significantly in receiving women only. Donatella Marazziti of the University of Pisa, Italy, says the boost may help women cope with the aggressive nature of S&M activities, or that it could be another sign of stress. In both studies, couples who said the party went well also reported increases in relationship closeness.”
I bet these dedicated scientists, in the name of science, suffered through many, many, sex parties. Suffered. Not just two. Cuz we all know you need more numbers to make a more fair experiment. Watching in the name of science, possibly even, at great risk to themselves, getting involved physically to test out their theories.
Heroes all, we salute you.
