Earlier this month, the BBC declared the fact that everyone stopped breeding a crisis. Now, scientists have found a “brain switch” in mice that controls the urge to have sex, and can be used to supercharge their sexual drive.
I am confident that if we connect the dots here, we’ll find a solution.
Two types of brain cell have been found in mice which control aggression levels and sexual desire.
The cells are involved in allowing two regions of the brain – the posterior amygdala and the hypothalamus – to communicate.
A study from New York University found that interfering with these pathways significantly alters mouse behaviour.
It is hoped the findings of the research could lead to future treatments for people with psychiatric disorders.
The scientists took 100 male mice and observed their levels of mounting and fighting and tracked their neural signals.
MPN-signaling cells were most active during sex, while VMHvl-signaling cells were most active during confrontations with other males.
The researchers then suppressed and amplified the neural activity of these cells to see the role they played in behaviour.
When so-called MPN-signaling cells in the amygdala were prevented from sending a message to the hypothalamus, mice suddenly became less interested in mating.
Whereas when VMHvl-signaling cells were blocked from sending messages to the hypothalamus from the amygdala, the mice become far less aggressive.
When MPN signals were amplified instead of squashed, male mice became sexually supercharged and pursued unresponsive females in a desperate bid to mate.
The scientists activated THE RAPE SWITCH.
Someone — probably Elon Musk — should figure out how to do that on humans through some drug and put the stuff in the water supply as a public health measure. The government already puts stuff in the water supply as a public health measure. Water fluoridation may be a polemic subject, but it’s done in the name of public health.
Declining birthrates are a public health crisis, but we can solve it through the mass activation of THE RAPE SWITCH.
Imagine waking up, making some coffee using tap water, and just as you’re about to finish your first cup, feeling the insurmountable urge to RAPE. All men will feel the unbearable Need For Rape. They won’t care about contraception, and they certainly won’t care about the possibility of hearing “no.”
The solution to every problem has long been rape.
Now we have a chance to implement it.
