Dr. Freda Bush and Dr. Joe McIlhaney You've heard it said that the brain is the most important sex organ, and Drs. Freda Bush and Joe McIlhaney explain how science bears that out. Hear them tell how the powerful chemicals dopamine and oxytocin are released during intimacy, causing a man to want to repeat the action and causing a woman to want to bond to her partner. They warn, however, that when you attach and unattach with multiple partners through premarital sex you weaken your ability to stay attached.
