60 Seconds with Dr. Tammy: Intimacy Q&A

March 27, 2012 Oxytocin and Sex Comments Off

Dr. Tammy Tucker, Board-certified family physician and author of the book and the program Project Fabulous, has been practicing Osteopathic Medicine for over 10 years, and specializes in holistic health methods. This means that she takes a “whole person” approach to medicine.

60-second Q&A with Dr. Tammy about oxytocin and sex:

Q) How does oxytocin affect our sex lives?

A) Oxytocin increases sexual receptivity, counteracts impotence, and it helps us connect to our partners more deeply on an emotional level, while enhancing physical pleasure.

Q) How often would one need to take oxytocin to improve sex in older adults?

A) Oxytocin is released when affection takes place. Often older adults do not engage in affection due to underlying feelings of inadequacy with their aging appearance and lack of intimacy as aging partners’ health declines leading to the inability to perform sexually for many reasons. There are many factors, both physical and emotional, that must be considered in keeping oxytocin levels balanced in elderly adults. There is a clear understanding that all hormone levels must be in balance to achieve optimal sexual peak performance. It may be necessary for the elderly to supplement more frequently due to the multiple factors that lead to decline in these levels and therefore affect the overall balance.

Q) Will it help an individual’s partner if the individual took oxytocin?
A) The only person we can change or control is ourselves. Feeling love and trust towards another through adequate levels of oxytocin can drastically change the dynamics of a relationship. If both partners are balanced with their oxytocin levels this effect is magnified. It makes sense that if the other partner feels love and trust and openness to bond that everyone in the relationship wins.

Oxytocin and Sex for Seniors

March 22, 2012 Uncategorized Comments Off

One of the, almost, universal truths is that as you get older your body begins to turn down some of the primal drives that you have – in particular the relationships between older couples can seem devoid of the physical aspects of being in love. Forget the ‘flowers and hearts’ stuff, but there is a fundamental truth and a link between the lengths of time you have been together and the numbers of small, seeming significant, quarrels over almost nothing.

There are numerous scholarly articles related to experiments and testing on prairie voles, sheep and rats that demonstrate the levels of potency increase with the production (or in these cases the introduction) of a naturally occurring hormone called oxytocin. First ‘discovered’ in 1909 by Henry Dale (later to be ‘Sir’ and a Nobel Prize winner), oxytocin is named after a Greek phrase which, when translated, means ‘speedy birth’. What he found was that this hormone, produced in the pituitary gland does many things – amongst which are controlling the contraction of the uterus during birth and the production of human milk during the nursing period! It seems that oxytocin is a wonder drug – so why haven’t we heard so much about it? And if it was thought, primarily, to be about childbirth, what on Earth has it got to do with us seniors?

Well, ‘seniors’ have feelings too and that is what oxytocin controls. There is a wonderful warmth and feeling of ‘togetherness’ in simply having a cuddle or holding hands and that warmth is, in a way, a byproduct of the little gland, the size of a pea, that we know as the pituitary.

I talked earlier about the ‘quarrels’ between people who have been together for a long-time and much of that is down to stress and distance in a relationship – it isn’t that people move apart, more that they don’t find it easy to show emotion or come closer together. So if there was a way…and there is. By simply having a cuddle, you feel closer to the person you are cuddling physically and emotionally. And science has found a mechanism for helping people overcome that irrational fear of disagreements and feeling alone – it’s a treatment that goes under the ungainly title of ‘oxytocin factor sublingual drops or the nasal spray’ – enough to put you off, but don’t let it. … Continue Reading
