ORLANDO Fla., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A hypothesis put forward at Genetic Economic Analytics shows a neuro-physiological link between sex and man's desire to hunt, as it suggests that the same regions of the brain activated in the sex drive and orgasm are used in the compulsion to hunt and harvest animals. The hypothesis concludes that Buck Fever, the uncontrollable spasming and bouncing of the leg in young, inexperienced hunters, is virtually the same as a male premature orgasm. This is very similar to computers using the same components to perform different tasks.
The GEA research pulled from several reference studies, including Brain Activation during Human Male Ejaculation at University Hospital Groningen, The Netherlands, which cites activation of the brain's precuneus zone that may be related to visual imagery and the activation of reward centers in the mesodiencephalic transition zone among others during orgasm. In the GEA hypothesis, the visual comes into play as the precursor to Buck Fever. When certain game animals come into the vision of the new hunter, the intense excitement is too much for the inexperienced hunter's previously unused sex/hunt brain drivers to handle. Instead of sending these premature signals through the sympathetic nervous system and/or the vagus nerve to the penis, the signal branches off to the foot. The pulsating in the foot is very similar to the pulsating of the penis, which facilitates ejaculation of semen. The hypothesis also cites "Foot Orgasm Syndrome," by Dr. Marcel Waldinger and his colleagues at Utrecht University, and another study showing the foot located next to the genitals in the cortical homunculus.
The conclusions in GEA's findings may finally provide a neuro-physiological link as proof that man's drive to hunt is not just a desire, but is an uncontrollable need engrained in our genetic structure, just as is our sex drive. The human male is given an intense drive to hunt and is rewarded with a very strong, pleasurable physical feeling upon completion because the need to eat is almost as important to Mother Nature as her number one goal of reproduction. Just as with the premature orgasm, Buck Fever is an interruption in the process. "It may also be that man's obsession with weapons from rocks and sticks to bows and guns has been programmed with the drive to hunt into male genetics from the beginning. As with so many other species of animals and insects using tricks, traps and weapons that are passed on instinctively through macro genetics and not by teaching, this affinity for weapons may also be instinctive, as in genetically programmed into man's DNA," GEA founder Robert McDowell.
