quote:Phenylalanine is the precursor to another amino acid called tyrosine. Tyrosine also does all of the above except for one factor. Eating chocolate causes the release of beta phenylethylamine, a neuromodulator associated with mood enhancement and sexual stimulation. Tyrosine does not appear to be as active in this role as chocolate and phenylalanine. This is the reason chocolate is referred to as a sex food.
I think that everything I have ever heard, is that yes, chocolate releases the same sorts of chemicals that are associated with sexual pleasure. But we are talking sexual pleasure, not necessarily orgasm inducing. I don't think a box of Godiva chocolate is gonna push you over the edge. Not me, at least...

I remember in the movie "Devil's Advocate", Al Pacino's character, the Devil, says that the feeling of love is "biochemically, no different from eating lots and lots of chocolate". I guess that goes for both men and women.

There seems to be an inordinate amount of BS on this board this morning. Do we need to go get some large, muscular lads to throw everyone into the pool where stuff like this belongs???
