I've been told by "several independent, reliable sources" that chocolate releases the same hormones in a female as an orgasm does.

Does anyone know anything about this topic?

I do remember hearing this in a news report several years ago. Apparently, though, it would take at least a pound of chocolate to reach the same hormone level.

From this site:

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 don't know how reliable that site is.

I also heard that 25 pounds of chocolate would give you the same effect as marijuana.

Is that why 50% of women prefer chocolate to sex?

Think you've gotta smoke it Zen... I've been known to go on all out chocolate binges and though I can report a mild sugar high, the only thing spasming afterwards was my stomach.

Well, to those of us who aren't chocoholics, that's a lot.

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.

I thought that marijuana just made crave 25 pounds of chocolate.

Yes, and if you can't get chocolate, dry Stove Top stuffing with peanut butter will do just fine in its place...

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???

A friend told me on Friday that a sneeze (presumably the satisfaction gained by sneezing) is equivalent to one eighth of an orgasm...

Personally I don't think a sneeze comes close to scratching an insect bite that's been annoying you all day...
