Hercules And Love Affair - Release Me (DJ-Kicks)

The fight or flight response is our body's primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to fight or flee from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.
When our fight or flight response is activated, sequences of nerve cell firing occur and chemicals like adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol are released into our bloodstream. These patterns of nerve cell firing and chemical release cause our body to undergo a series of very dramatic changes.
Our respiratory rate increases. Our pupils dilate. Our awareness intensifies. Our sight sharpens. Our impulses quicken. Our perception of pain diminishes.
But what happens if you feel threatened and you can’t fight nor flee ? What happens when your body and your mind are a sort of bomb ready to explode but you just can’t make a move?
I’ve read somewhere that some people, often dressed (or better undressed) in strange ways put themselves into situations like that to catch this extreme feel...
How bizarre isn’t it? ;)
