The hormone can be produced in the body by:
- Positive and loving human interactions like hugging, cuddling and kissing.
- Experience of loved-filled sexual encounters high on love produce the hormone.
- Feeling sentimental, caring and empathetic in general. For Example, Watching an emotional movie(Titanic?) raises our love hormone.
- Giving birth to a child, and breastfeeding is found to increase the level of oxytocin to forge the bond with the baby.
