Study Reveals Why You Feel Attracted To The Opposite Sex


Researchers from Germany’s Saarland University have found that “kisspeptin” is responsible for opposite-sex attraction and sexual behaviours. It can lead to treatment for psychosexual disorders patients.

According to experts, kisspeptin is a brain hormone and the key molecule within the brain that triggers puberty and control fertility, attraction, and sex but by different brain circuits that work in parallel with one another.

The study has been conducted on mice and revealed that a subset of neurons in the hypothalamus that is a brain region, responsible for sexual behaviour and attraction to the opposite sex.

Pheromones secreted by the male mouse activate these neurons which, in turn, transmit this signal to another population of neurons to drive attraction to the opposite sex. Pheromones are a chemical substance produced and released by an animal.

Experts said, simultaneously, they also transmit this signal to cells that produce the neurotransmitter nitric oxide to trigger sexual behaviour.

Professor Ulrich Boehm of the Saarland University in Germany said, “This work has provided new insight into how the brain decodes signals from the outside world and then translates these environmental cues into behaviour.”

This work opens up new and exciting possibilities for the treatment of patients with psychosexual disorders such as hyposexual desire disorder, Boehm added, in a paper published in the journal Nature Communications.

According to the Julie Bakker, who is a Professor at Liege University in Belgium, there are currently no good treatments available for women suffering from low sexual desire.
