Right... I'm gonna call ******** on that one.
Now, assuming I was able to catch this one as a fraud, I'm going to assume a few others are.

when you do your research, make sure to check more than one source, hormones have more than one use:
"Oxytocin evokes feelings of contentment, reductions in anxiety, and feelings of calmness and security around the mate.[24] Many studies have already shown a correlation of oxytocin with human bonding, increases in trust, and decreases in fear. One study confirmed a positive correlation between oxytocin plasma levels and an anxiety scale measuring the adult romantic attachment.[25] This suggests oxytocin may be important for the inhibition of the brain regions associated with behavioral control, fear, and anxiety, thus allowing orgasm to occur. Oxytocin also functions to protect against stress. Meta-analyses conducted in 2003 demonstrated that oxytocin can alleviate mood and reduce stress with alarming efficiency.[26]"
