Well yes! My reasoning is terribly simple. Love has long been understood to be a chemical protocol modulated by our biological systems independent of our consciousness. In fact it is so powerful that it will bend our consciousness to its direction. This is often rather undesirable and difficult to contain..
Fighting physical lust independent of rational choice is a problem often confronting both men and women. It certainly drives any number of unwelcome relationships better still born. Yet turning on this effect for a couple would be a powerful bonding driver as well. Again it needs to succumb to choice and that has been difficult.
Obviously what is envisaged is an effective pair of drugs. One to shut down unnecessary desire and another to fire it up. From what has been experimented with it may be practical and highly acceptable. Particularly young men and women whose hormonal systems are raging and interfering with their ability to function.
Should desire be curable?
Passion stabs, unrequited love hurts and taboo desires can torment the spirit. Is it time to fix our love lives for good?
