Cuddle drug as good as Viagra

A natural hormone dubbed the ‘cuddle drug’ has been tipped to have similar effects for men as Viagra.

The chemical oxytocin, which floods women’s brains during breasfeeding - increasing the bond between mother and baby - is being hailed as having the same effects on a man’s libido as the sexual stimulant.

Mike Wyllie, a scientist behind the discovery of Viagra, was so impressed with the powers of oxytocin that he described a treatment based on its use as having ‘blockbuster potential’, according to the Irish Daily Mail.

A study found that a father-of-three, who was experiencing difficulties with his wife, sprayed the chemical up his nose twice a day, and reported being more sexually potent and even more affectionionate towards her.
