Scientists in London have developed a nasal spray that will help you get rid of your crippling shyness. The drug releases the hormone oxytocin into the brain, increasing self-confidence and lowering anxiousness. It's undergoing clinical tests right now, but scientists hope to have it out to the masses in just a few years. There's no word as to if this will be as effective as the current drug on the market that increases self-confidence and suppresses shyness, alcohol, but time will tell. [YahooSpulch]

DISCUSSION

Oxytocin is released by a woman's pituitary around about the time she is going into labor such that the uterus is primed to start contracting, thereby expelling the fetus.

As a male, and after hearing about an oxytocin nasal spray, all I can say is: where do I buy it and how much is it?!
