No boner? No problem.

A team of scientists might have found the answer to solving a slew of male erectile problems that give men a difficult time ‘standing up’ and performing when it’s sexy time.

The group, which is based at the Imperial College London, conducted a study with the naturally occurring hormone kisspeptin also referred to as “Mental Viagra,” NY Daily News reports.

In the study, the brain activity of 29 men were tested after they were injected with a shot of kisspeptin—a hormone that pushes the sexual desire of male teenagers.

The process apparently yielded positive results with the subjects showing improved sexual brain activity when viewing romantic images of couples.

“What we found using these methodologies was the second administration was able to stimulate neuronal activity in these healthy male volunteers to a higher degree compared when they receive to say like, controlled infusion and so their limbic brain activity was heightened by kisspeptin administration specifically when they were looking at sexual and couple bonding images,” said Professor Waljit Dhillo, the lead author of the study.

However, there was no notable stimulation when the subjects looked at neutral images.

Dhillo says they are now planning to conduct more experiments to unlock further uses for kisspeptin particularly in couple’s intimacy.

“Ultimately, we are keen to look into whether kisspeptin could be an effective treatment for psychosexual disorders, and potentially help countless couples who struggle to conceive,” he said.

Well, we’re looking forward to it, prof!
