Researchers at the MU Office of Research uncovered a new scientific discovery in music therapy and sexual health Oct. 12.
Subjects afflicted with erectile dysfunction listened to tracks from Marvin Gaye’s 1976 soul and R&B masterpiece “I Want You,” experienced symptoms of significant sexual arousal. The subjects all between ages 58 and 72 displayed significant increases in heart rate (to the rhythm, specifically) and escalations of blood flow entering both the corpus spongiosm and the corpus cavernosum, the areas of the penis both responsible for erection.
Study subject Mike Smith even went on to say that he “hadn’t experienced a hard-on to that degree since the Carter presidency.”
Another subject, who wishes to remain anonymous, stated that since the study was conducted, “Feel All My Love Inside” saved his marriage.
Although the study was conducted to aid those afflicted with impotence, researchers also recommended for all to play the album in the background during moments of intimacy.
