When I'm talking sex. I also include the obssesive feeling you get when you fall in love and how every little thing reminds you of your obsession. I've read that romantic feelings comes from increased activity in the frontal lobes ( dopamine primarily ) and this has been seen in people when they viewed pictures of their partners.
On one site that talked about the death of 'unrequited love syndrome' while taking antidepressants, it mentioned that men often reported that the feeling they get when you see someone attractive is less while they could cognitively 'know' the woman was attractive.
That loss of feeling is what I'm talking about.
I've heard about serotonin's role in social dominance.
