Heterosexual men supposedly cannot control themselves in the presence of attractive women. Of course, to feminists and gay men everywhere this alleged uncontrollable response is the result of an aberration - some sort of disease that requires treatment.
Politically correct scientists in Japan have come up with a solution so that men can avoid the “devil with a blue dress.” Men can now take an antibiotic. Minocycline is an antibiotic primarily used to treat acne, but it can also reduce symptoms associated with mental illnesses and impact decision-making.
In a study of about 100 heterosexual men, Japanese researchers asked the men to play a “trust game” using photographs of women. Each man had 1300 Yen and was asked to rate the attractiveness of each woman and document how much money they would give them in the trust game. The men were told that the amount of money given would be tripled, and the woman could then choose how to split the money between herself and the man. The men were not told that every woman had already chosen in advance to take all of the money, completely stiffing the man.
Prior to the experiment, the men were given either placebo or minocycline. The men who took minocycline were immune to the seductive allure of the honey traps. Men who were taking placebo offered about 50% of their money in the trust game to women of "low attractiveness," while they gave 65% of their money to women of "high attractiveness." Men receiving a regimen of minocycline gave about 50% to both groups of women.
