Didn’t know this

The key to many of the health benefits of sex is the love hormone – oxytocin. Also sometimes called the cuddle hormone, it can even be released when petting your dog. The same hormone causes contractions in childbirth and is in the pessaries given to induce labour. It’s even in sperm. It’s not a myth that sex can help an overdue baby get going.

Isn’t that wondrous? A sex column in The Guardian that is actually about sex not either the feelz or the patriarchy?

  1. Presumably it works just as well if you’re paying for it? Asking for a friend.

  2. “it can even be released when petting your dog”

    Presumably cat too, hence cat-ladies?
