New German research finds that oxytocin may play a role in keeping men in relationships faithful.




The "love hormone" oxytocin may help keep straight men in relationships faithful by prompting them to steer clear of hot women.



Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany found that when men in monogamous relationships were given a dose of oxytocin nasal spray, they kept a larger physical distance -- about four to six inches -- from attractive women they didn't know compared to men who received a placebo.
However for single men, the oxytocin spray had no effect on the distance they kept between themselves and the attractive women. The study involved 57 heterosexual men.
