Tina Turner once asked rhetorically in song, “What does love have to do with it?” Then she went on to express that love is nothing but a second hand emotion. Scientists (neurobiologists) have discovered there is much truth in Tina’s song. Brain imaging techniques have allowed neurobiologists to learn something about the neural bases of love. Love is basically the result of experiences that activate specific regions of the brain, as well as overlapping regions in the brain’s reward system that coincide with areas rich in oxytocin and vasopressin receptors. This means that food might not be the quickest way to a man’s heart as was commonly supposed. But ladies, this also does not mean after grinding his wiener real good with your meat-grinder that he will automatically fall madly in love with you. Previous experiences, peer pressure, a bond (love) already established are a few of the factors that may prevent the tactic from working as you expect. Of course, intimate relationships, such as those friends have, also create love but not as quickly. In other words, cooking for the man and being his friend is likely a surer way to attain his love than grinding his wiener.
