    • Johann: Heroin, codeine, morphine all belong to the same family derived from the poppy. They are called opiates. They have special receptors in the brain to receive opiate molecules.
    • Johann: Some physicians think there's a naturally occurring molecule in the human body that's nearly the same molecular structure as opiates.
    • Johann: Opium users have said that the drug creates a similar feeling than what people experience during orgasm.
    • Johann: It could be that this molecule is released into the brain during orgasm
    • Hair Stylist: What did you, take your nasty pills this morning?
