The oxytocin hack for better SQ

I was looking at the oxytocin Wikipedia page yesterday, and came across this surprising thing:

There are indicators that oxytocin may help to decrease noise in the brain’s auditory system… It may also enhance reward responses.

Oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone, and the above suggests that if you want better, and potentially more rewarding, SQ, it may be helpful to stimulate oxytocin production before a listening session. Consult the Wikipedia page for ideas about how one might do that.

I’ll have a Serotonin and Dopamine thanks.
