How to better understand the chemicals produced by the brain during 'romantic love' versus 'a long-term committed love relationship'

Gender differences are here to stay; you can either learn about them and have fun with them or be rather miserable and frustrated. Human beings are believed innately to be relational, spiritual, and sexual (whether or not they engage in sexual activity). Contrary to what some believe, the brain is your primary sex organ—sex begins and ends in the brain.


This seminar is designed to increase your understanding about the complexity of human variation, including recent discoveries of variations in chromosomal patterns. It explains how romantic love resembles a hormonal tsunami, involving phenylethylalanine or PEA. It’s the chemical responsible for the initial high of romantic love, which acts a lot like amphetamine. Individuals can become dependent upon or even addicted to PEA. It includes brief descriptions of the three chemicals associated with romantic love versus the three associated with long-term commited love.


This seminar can be presented in 50 minutes.


People who want to better understand human sexuality, the array of variations, and the important of personal choice in how sexuality is exhibited.


Upon completion of the seminar, participants should be able to:

  • Briefly explain the PEA brain
  • List five chromosomal patterns that differ from XX and XY
  • Explain two ways in which this information can be of benefit, especially in understanding the plethora of differences that are being identified
