Ever since I heard of the double-blind, University of Zurich study that proved that Oxytocin made people more trusting and likely to give their money away, I’ve needed some of that hormone. Why don’t they sell that shit? I wondered. The study had a spray, why don’t I? I could use other people’s money just as much as those researchers. Maybe even more so.
A company has stepped up to the plate. They’re called Liquid Trust. Their slogan, “Trust in a Bottle”, once again proves that most of life’s solutions come in a bottle. But, you know, it’s hard to trust a company and this is most likely snake-oil. Still, Oxytocin itself seems to be legit.
It’s released during orgasm in both men and women, produces erections in rats and makes female prairie voles bond with their partners. So, I guess if you’re looking to use this trust hormone on the cheap, you might just stick your hands down a stranger’s pants while asking for cash. There might be laws about that sort of thing but, really, there’s laws about too many things.
