I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I didn't see another forum that looked more appropriate.
Anecdotally I buy what Marina is selling. :) I can see how the dopamine cycles have caused a lot of yo-yo'ing for me when it comes to sexuality and I recently experienced a period where I didn't orgasm for about 5 weeks and it felt like the most emotionally stable period I've had as long as I can remember.
However, there's a logical/intellectual part of my brain that says "prove it" and wants to know that this isn't all placebo effect for me. Marina has talked a lot about the changes hormonally and while I have no reason to believe she's wrong, there also seems to be somewhat of a lack of evidence for her theory. I've only read Cupid's Poisoned Arrow so I might be missing something but I'd love to see studies or some further documentation that what she says is happening truly is happening.
The other part that my logical/intellectual brain still is having difficulty processing is around the advice we've heard so much about how frequent sex is good for your health. Almost every article that I've seen about sex and health states the positive effects of having sex frequently. Is it the case that all of these authors are wrong or misguided? Would love to hear any thoughts here. Again, I'm not doubting Marina but rather just looking for more support for what I feel might be a revolutionary theory.
