“WARNING: THIS BEVERAGE WILL AROUSE YOU, reads the label of a cherry-flavored “love drink” that may soon be hitting U.S. supermarket shelves. The new pop, Turn On, is packed with the energy-drink staples ginseng and caffeine. But it’s being marketed as a booster for a kind of workout you won’t find at the gym.”

REVIEWS: Pathways of Sexual Desire
“Brain dopamine systems (incertohypothalamic and mesolimbic) that link the hypothalamus and limbic system appear to form the core of the excitatory system.
