I wouldn't say ecstacy makes you hornier, I'd say it makes the sensations a whole new field.

Alcohol and basically nothing else.

Ecstasy makes me touchy but I don't enjoy sex on it.

Nothing makes you hornier per se. Lots of drugs just make sex feel better or may make you more likely to have sex due to lowered inhibitions.

There are a large number of things that have been shown in laboratory tests to increase libido.  There are another array of things that seem to increase libido from person to person, but not ubiquitously.  It's sort of foolish to say "nothing makes you hornier", given this information.   Further, SOMETHING on a chemical level has to change to perceive an increase in libido or horniness.  You cannot merely say "it just happens".  Nothing "just happens" in human neurochemistry.

tl;dr your post is nonsensical and wrong.

But no link?

Meth and other drugs are used to have sex longer.

Some increase libido in individuals but this is most likely due to sex feelings better thus making them want to have it more. Which was what I already said. It's psychological and not pharmacological though.

What exactly do you want you want?  Evidence that there has to be some sort of neurochemical shift in order to experience a feeling or emotional change?  Pick up any textbook on brain behavior or psychology or anything related to science?  
Or do you want a list of things that actually have been shown to increase libido?  I can link you to the wiki and if you want to see the individual studies for any of them, I'll just dig into my school's online catalog.  You'll have to be more specific though.  I'm not going to link you to every study ever done on anything in this field, as there are hundreds and hundreds.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aphrodisiac

As to the second part of your post, you seem to have absolutely no grasp on the concept of sensation AND perception.  You cannot separate psychology and pharmacology when you're talking about PSYCHOactive drugs.  The definition of a psychoactive drug is a drug that directly impacts the neurological functioning of an individual.  That means that you're talking about a substance that changes the way the brain works.   That means (in case you're not following yet) that we're talking about chemicals that change the way people perceive the world around them....including their desire to have sex.  It is not at all difficult to draw the conclusion from there that certain drugs can have a very noticeable effect on how someone experiences their sex drive.

Yes, certain drugs make sex last longer but that's irrelevant to the question.  The question is one that's founded in perception of feelings of horniness or libido, and the mere fact that people PERCEIVE an increased sex drive is enough to make the question in the OP a valid one.  Pharmacology IS psychology when we're talking about psychoactives.

You must be missing my point. Only hormones are going to cause someone to become hornier. Any effect of a drug that is not a hormone is going to be psychological and not a direct pharmalogical effect.  

If you don't separate the psychological effects from the pharmalogical ones than any substance that causes a placebo effect must be considered active, which is obviously not true..

You see I'm not saying drugs can't cause someone to become hornier. But I'm saying it's typically because of it's subjective effects, which will vary from person to person, rather than it's actual neurological effects.  

The only drugs that will cause people to undoubtedly become hornier are sex hormones.

Also wikipedia isn't a reliable source. There's a reason you can't use it in highschool or college as a source. So if you're going to make an argument in the future try not to do something so ignorant as to use wikipedia.

This is absolutely incorrect.  All one has to do is stimulate the brain areas responsible for sexual arousal and it happens.  The  inferior temporal cortex, right orbitofrontal cortex,  left anterior cingulate cortex, right insula,  and  right caudate nucleus are all responsible for elements of sexual arousal.  Hormone are a big part but hormone secretion is largely dependent on brain activity as well.

it's nothing short of ridiculous to say that hormones are the driving source behind sexual arousal.  They are a part of a rather large system.

In that, drugs affect the brain.  Drugs, by default, have the capacity to affect any of these brain areas.


If you don't separate the psychological effects from the pharmalogical ones than any substance that causes a placebo effect must be considered active, which is obviously not true..

That was not my statement.  My statement was that you cannot seperate obviously active pyschoactive drugs from their effect on human psychology.  To reverse the argument is of no benefit to the logic of your claims.  It simply disproves the notion that non-psychoactive drugs have the capacity to have an effect, but aren't engineered to.  This is nothing new at all.

Aside from the brain areas I've already covered, let's throw in some neurotransmitters that do as well.  Dopamine and oxytocin?  

Your fixation on hormones is interesting but not really that far out of the norm view within groups that have limited education with the intricacies of drug interactions and brain activity.  Yes hormones play a major role.  No they are not everything.  Neuroscience makes this painstakingly obvious.  


Also wikipedia isn't a reliable source. There's a reason you can't use it in highschool or college as a source. So if you're going to make an argument in the future try not to do something so ignorant as to use wikipedia.

Did you miss the part where I told you I was being lazy and invited you to ask for a specific research article on anything on that page?  This is a teen website.  I'm not going to link to any and every site I have for fun.  I have real work to do.  If you have a more specific question than "PROVE EVERYTHING ABOUT LIBIDO" I will more than happily do so.  Until then, I am not posting 200 research journals for you to look at because no matter what you end up believing, it is not worth my time to do so.

Wrong, those areas of the brain are responsible for numerous behaviors and not solely sexual arousal, stimulation of these parts of the brain could do numerous things, you have to narrow it down to individual receptors in each part to know what you're going to cause to happen.

Dopamine and oxytocin are released as a result of sex. But have nothing to do with sexual arousal it's self.

Technically a drug can effect a part of the brain. But the drugs we're specifically talking about which are "true aphrodisiacs" are hormones; synthetic, natural, analogues, ect.

Drugs work on specific receptors in your brain.  Only certain compounds can fit into these individual receptors, the drugs that fit into the receptors related to sexual arousal are hormones or hormone analogues specifically sex hormones. But you seem to not understand what hormones are so heres the definition: "A chemical substance produced in the body that controls and regulates the activity of certain cells or organs.

Many hormones are secreted by specialized glands such as the thyroid gland. Hormones are essential for every activity of daily living, including the processes of digestion, metabolism, growth, reproduction, and mood control."

Neurotransmitters are hormones, that seems to be something you're unaware of. Sexual arousal is directly caused by neurotransmitters.

You say I'm uninformed yet this is my major, maybe you should look up hormones and read up on body processes before you try posting and telling me I'm wrong.

Funny enough:

Alcohol doesn't increase libido, it decreases inhibitions which is the reason people tend to have sex while drunk a lot. You're posting out right ignorant statements that are showing lack of knowledge on this subject. I know you're intelligent from other things I've seen you talk about on here. But you simply don't seem to understand this fully.
