Dopamine is a chemical that plays many roles in the brain, from memory to attention and cognition. Did you know changes in dopamine levels can make you more likely to be promiscuous? Genovate is here to help you understand if you are genetically pre-programmed to cheat on your partners. Their Promiscuity Gene test looks at genetic variants of the DRD4 gene associated with dopamine imbalance.

People with the promiscuity gene are more likely to cheat maybe because sexual activity can boost dopamine levels.
Once you purchase the Genovate kit, you will receive a set of swabs to collect your DNA and a pre-paid return envelope to easily send back your DNA to the lab. Around 7 to 10 business days after your test is received in the lab, you will be able to view your results online.
Your DNA report will provide you with detailed information on how the promiscuity gene is detected, and its link to dopamine levels and the likelihood of cheating.
Genovate also offers other actionable genetic tests that focus on health and wellness, lifestyle, and ancestry. You can find them in our science store or visit Genovate to find more information.
