The Treatment is something of an irregularity within the United Galactic Confederacy. A galaxy-wide ban on involuntary mind-control prevents similar perversions on other planets. The officially cited reason for this exemption dates back to New Texas' first contact with the U.G.C. hundreds of years ago during one of the first rushes, and the reasons behind that even further.
Before gate technology was discovered, numerous attempts at colonization were made using a combination of cryogenic technologies and long, automated spaceflights. New Texas was founded by one such mission, launched by colonists out of Houston. As part of an early population-building initiative, the Treatment was designed by top earth scientists as a means of ensuring high fertility and virility rates among the future colonists. This early form of the iconic mutagen was far less dramatic than the one that's become famous today.
However, the agrarian society that sprung up on the recently christened "New Texas" quickly became something of a patriarchy. With most women pregnant and indoors, the men were free to run the planet as they saw fit, and as a consequence, gender roles regressed to terran pre-industrial levels. The few scientists on planet found this arrangement enjoyable and began modifying the Treatment in an effort to make their planet even more of a paradise, adding bull-like strength to males and enhancing the feminine libido and endorphin production.
Changes to the formula did not stop there. Over the centuries of isolation, the Treatment was gradually refined. Side-effects like bull-like horns, masculine animal genitalia, and increases in lactation were viewed as welcome blessings. The Treatment became an ingrained part of New Texas' culture, a customary second puberty started at the age of eighteen. Women became euphoric, lactating, and sexually promiscuous in the extreme. Men gained in both physical and sexual endurance while celebrating enhanced genital size.
New Texas' technology never really advanced beyond what they brought with them. Indeed, it's a miracle that the Treatment was as nuanced as it was a first contact.
U.G.C. diplomats were at first shocked, then pleased, then shocked before finally being pleased all over again by what they found on New Texas. It was agreed that forcing them to abandon their ways would lead to disruption on a global scale, and New Texas was allowed to continue on with the Treatment so long as it was never transferred off planet. Of course, U.G.C. scientists had to be given accumulated research data on it.
New Texas remains today as a popular but exclusive tourist destination, though roughly 20% of visitors wind up immigrating. Being cleared to visit is a right often reserved to the rich or well-connected. This provides a secondary income source for the planet.
Population is now controlled via water-distributed birth-control, helping the planet to maintain an agrarian way of life.
Only 20 percent of the Treatment's composition is publicly available. Researching or distributing information on the other 80 percent is illegal without express dispensation from the Office of Galactic Affairs. The known portion is composed of a combination of sex hormones, reprogrammable microsurgeons whose instructions are too encrypted for civilians to decipher, and high grade, brain-chemistry altering drugs most often used to treat depression. It is widely theorized that U.G.C. scientists have worked with New Texan scientists to improve the Treatment and conceal the exact nature of its mechanisms from prying eyes.
Method of Application
The treatment is typically distributed to visitors in the form of a medipen - a cheap, easy-to-manufacture self-numbing injector that allows for painless application of the Treatment with a minimum of fuss. The needle is practically microscopic and concealed by the barrel of the pen so that when the activation stud is depressed, there is nothing to disturb those with a fear of needles. Citizens of New Texas may receive the Treatment by using the subdermal diffusers at their local educational facilities, allowing the contents of the treatment to painlessly penetrate the skin without any need for injection. Some ports of call may have these machines available for patrons who prefer a gentler approach to a happy future.
Both human sexes experience a large degree of change during their "second puberty," but the effects vary widely between them. Hermaphrodites and other intersex individuals react unpredictably to the Treatment: some will receive one sex's effects and some a mix of both.
Female Mental Effects
The mental effects propagate over a period of 48 hours, plus or minus 12. They start with a rapid loss of willpower and end with a huge dip in perceived intelligence. Both are relative to the user's original aptitude; particularly strong-willed women seemed best able to handle their new drives and shorter attention spans. Actual I.Q.s are unchanged, though new cows have great difficulty maintaining motivation for nonsexual pursuits, leading to a bimbo stereotype. Promises of longer milkings for higher scores increased standardized test results to near pre-treatment levels. Adding a fuck from a treated male, or bull, as a prize eliminated the discrepancy.
Those changes are gradual enough that most girls barely notice them. One secondary effect that every girl notices and is happy to talk about is the all-encompassing EUPHORIA that being treated brings. It too starts slow and ramps up over the 48 hour period, but it's impossible not to notice how natural smiling becomes or how easy it is to lose oneself in the simpler pleasures afterward. Everyday activities like bathing become exquisitely enjoyable, almost spiritual activities for treated cow-girls.
Another important secondary characteristic of the Treatment is an increase in libido. Treated women find themselves almost comically easily aroused, and with heightened libidos and a happy disposition, they'll find themselves fucking and breeding many times more often than untreated individuals. While many women display concern about this before taking the Treatment, there has not been a single cow reporting displeasure with this facet of her life after a month of time to adjust. New Texas has not had a reported case of depression in three centuries.
Many more effects can manifest as part of the Treatment. Their appearance and strength seem largely randomized. Whether this is intentionally part of the Treatment's design or accidental benefit is unknown.
Additional Female Mental Effects:
- Oral Fixation (common, normally low intensity)
- Mooing (nearly universal)
- Increased docility (common)
- Submissive arousal (extremely common)
- Increased aggression. (very rare)
- Strong desire to be milked (common)
- Sudden and unexplained fetish gain
- Increases in maternal instincts
- Vastly increased empathy
- Temporary return of pre-treatment perceived I.Q. in response to stimulus (rare: Stimulus and length of altered intelligence varies.)
- Altered speech patterns
Female Physical Effects
The physical effects are slower, taking the better part of a week to complete. The first and most noticeable effect is hunger. Rebuilding a body burns quite a lot of calories, and facilitating the aforementioned mental restructuring is also quite energy intensive. Treated individuals actually increase their neural density by roughly 5%, owing largely to the ability to process new sensory data from all the new nerves. Only extremely obese individuals find their appetites unaffected.
Breast growth is the second effect to manifest, and it lasts for days. Both nipple and mammary tissue expand greatly over the week-long period, accompanied by a kind of pleasant tingle that makes them almost impossible not to heft and handle every few minutes. The growth is typically steady, though large changes overnight manifest in some budding cows. A woman's original bust size has almost zero correlation with her treated size. Some of the smallest girls wind up huge, while more than one chesty maiden barely get an inch or two added to their racks.
Obese women invariably lose weight. Hip bones widen. Cellulite smooths while wrinkles vanish. Lips often plump and soften, becoming chap-resistant. Hard facial features sometimes soften and ease slightly towards classical beauty. These effects are almost universal. All in all, the Treatment is guaranteed to make girls curvier and sexier by human definitions.
Most noticeably, small, rounded horns will typically grow in on the upper forehead. "Getting your horns" is a sign of adulthood on New Texas, but other bovine features may occur as well. Ears, cow tails, and furred thighs are all common. Some women may find their feet sculpted into hooves or hoof-like heels as well. Multiple nipples or breasts are somewhat rare, but do occur frequently enough for it to be a well-understood phenomenon. Cows with both are typically considered very desirable, both as milk producers and as mates.
The least visible changes all occur inside the breasts and genital region. The former get noticeably bigger and gain longer, puffier nipples, but they also triple in nerve density over the course of the treatment. As one would expect, this has resulted in an increase in the popularity of breast-play. Adjustments to the milk glands improve the flow, consistency, and taste of lactation, resulting in milkings that are described as "almost as good as sex." Milking barns and breast-massages have become popular destinations for cows who desire to retain their autonomy. Self-cleaning, fluid-repellant seats are government mandated in such businesses for health and safety reasons.
More importantly, the genitals get a complete if subtle makeover. Pubic hair falls out roughly 50% of the time. 11% of the time, the opposite happens, and the fibers will thicken quite significantly. Pubic mounds swell, making cameltoes almost ubiquitous. Labia minora rarely expand, but when they do, it's typically on girls with quite small lips pre-Treatment. The real changes occur in the clitoris and inside the vaginal passage.
The Treatment universally causes clitoral expansion while maintaining the organ's original nerve density, resulting in a bud that easily swells up to the size of a gumball when aroused. Lubrication secretion is nearly tripled, and as a side-effect the clitoris becomes self-lubricating as well. It's hard to miss the gleaming pink pleasure target on a randy cow and impossible not to grind against when fucking from any angle. Nerve density inside is vastly increased (by a factor of approximately 2.3), particularly around the cervix. Clusters of new pleasure nerves form there, resulting in a new, deep G-spot.
All the new nerves allow a much finer degree of control over the surrounding muscles, and accompanying mental changes wire them to squeeze and caress on autopilot. Some manual control is possible with concentration, but when pressed, treated women didn't seem to see the point in it. Their partners universally enjoy the enhanced textures and movement her muscles offer. Texan cow-girl pussies are considered some of the universe's finest at extracting human genetic material, rivaling even KihaCorp's latest synthpussies for the sheer pleasure offered to their partners.
Of course, generally elasticity is increased as well to accommodate the enhanced, swollen girths that the treatment provides for males, and pheromone production goes through the roof, matched to an increase in sensitivity to male odors. Treated girls can literally smell a cock, and if they approve of it, the lucky boy is probably going to find himself more than a little hard thanks to her subconscious production of aromatic sex-signals.
There is a twelve page list of additional physical mutations and effects, but the most common are listed below:
- Suppression of gag reflex: Nearly every girl has a reduced gag reflex, though some retain some small measure of it.
- Horse-like ears: This typically occurs in cows with higher muscle mass. Cows with this mutation are sometimes referred to as mares.
- Fully prehensile tails.
- Oral erogenous zone: Most commonly centered on the lips but sometimes the tongue is included as well. Nerve density approaches genital levels. Most girls with this mutation find oral nearly as pleasant as vaginal. Popsicle sales are well above terran standards on New Texas.
- Cum highs: This trait causes the concentrated release of endorphins in response to any exposure to cum. It appears to function by triggering an allergy-like response.
- Fuckable Nipples: Very few cows develop fuckable nipples, but those that do invariably had larger breasts and nipples naturally. They develop a large, nerve-lined milk-duct behind the nipple which can be penetrated with after a slight degree of training. Sexual intercourse with such a passage triggers immediate milk production far beyond normal. Scientists are currently unsure if this functions as a stand-in for lubricants or if it serves some other purpose. It is widely viewed as one of the messiest forms of coitus on New Texas.
- Pseudophalli: Hermaphroditism is almost unheard of New Texas. After the treatment, both sexes seem quite content to fit into binary gender roles. But every so often, something goes wrong, and a girl will find her clit swelling during her transformation. While a little growth is normal, cows developing pseudophalli surpass fully treated girls in clitoris size by the third day of their metamorphosis. Nerve growth cannot keep pace with such a large expansion, resulting in sensation levels that barely surpass New Texan penises. Cows with pseudophalli display much higher incidences of lesbianism and bisexuality than normal.
- Udders: It may be common on New Texas to colloquially refer to breasts as udders, but some women will find their bellies getting pinker, bulgier, and growing a plethora of nipples. Women with udders moo approximately three times as often other cows.
- Long tongues: Despite the name, long tongues come in a large variety of shapes and sizes: elongated human tongues, smooth and broad bovine ones, even forked snake-like ones, to name a few. Bovine tongues seem most prevalent.
- Extra fluff: The fluff at the end of some cows' tails grows far beyond normal, sometimes growing to a beachball-sized tuft of softness.
- Ear sensitivity: Increases in tactile sensation along the outside of the ears are fairly common, but in some cases it can match the breasts and nipples for sheer sensitivity. Many girls with this mutation get slightly bigger, floppier ears to go with it. Petting these cows is the quickest way to soothe them into a relaxed, happy state should they ever be upset.
Male Mental Effects
Like their feminine counterparts, males experience a series of mental effects that manifest over a roughly 48 hour period. Unlike the females, they suffer no loss of perceived IQ, but they do experience several other key changes.
First and foremost is an uptick in confidence. Whether deserved or not, treated males - or bulls as they are sometimes called - are generally confident in their own abilities and their place in society. Testosterone-laden men who are sure of their own beliefs are sure to come to conflict, but another effect helps to prevent that. Namely, the growth of a cooperative instinct that is most powerful after orgasm, working with the cow-girls' natural nymphomaniac instincts to keep everyone happy and willing to compromise for the good of all.
Another change that is almost unnoticeable at first is an increase in satisfaction from physical tasks. Exercise rapidly becomes far more pleasant. New Texans can get the equivalent of a runner's high from almost any physical task, and linkages between muscle fatigue and arousal cause many to frequently work out, if only to enjoy hours of blowjobs in the post-workout haze.
Even without exercising fueling it, male sex drives accelerate up to the point where rampant sex is a foregone conclusion. Most boys look forward to their second puberty, their only concern that they might lose their hard-earned ranking in an extranet game due to their new drives.
Additional mental effects may include:
- Sudden new fetish gain, particularly pregnancy and lactation.
- Cravings for vaginal fluids.
- Decreased submissiveness and an uptick in sexual dominance.
- Rarely, complete submissiveness. Bulls unfortunate enough to gain this trait are typically referred to as faux-cows.
Male Physical Effects
Male physical effects take just as long to manifest as the females', but they're concentrated almost entirely in the genitals and related hormone production. The first and most important effect is an increase in testicle size. Every male experiences significant and prolonged swelling of the testes across the weeklong period. Egg to apple-sized balls are the result, and with increased size comes increased testosterone production. Treated males pack on plenty of muscle during the weeklong change, and they keep it on with ease thanks to the flood of hormones their swollen cum-factories produce.
Other hormones flood the budding bulls' system along with the testosterone, causing a final growth spurt that brings most bulls up to somewhere between six and eight feet of height. The weeklong growth spurt is only mildly uncomfortable for the growing males, but fully acclimating to a heightened stature often takes months if not years.
The thing that most excites untreated men are the effects it has on the penis. Every male gains at least two or three inches of length backed up by proportional increases girth, with many seeing an increase of up to eight inches. Data on nonhuman individuals is sparse, but reports indicate that tauric individuals or members from well-endowed races can grow twice as much as the terran average. Nerve growth slightly exceeds the rate of expansion, resulting in a more sensitive tallywhacker. This might be a problem if refractory periods weren't virtually eliminated. Instead, it merely allows the men to more frequently release themselves inside their jiggling mates.
The reduction in refractory period is accomplished via a retooling of all the male sex glands. Larger testes help, but they would mean little without a more efficient, larger prostate, redesigned seminal vesicles, and rearranged synapses to control it all. Bulls are capable of ejaculating ten times an hour so long as they have access to sufficient nutrient and fluid sources with particularly virile specimens able to produce gallons of the stuff when thoroughly "milked." Staying hard after an orgasm is as easy as deciding to stay inside and keep thrusting.
Horns start coming in by day two, but it isn't until day four that they're large enough for accurate predictions of the final size a bull is likely to get. Charts are available upon request at most medical facilities on planet. Much larger than the little nubs the girls get, the men's horns tend to be larger, wider spaced, and more horizontal, resembling a bull's. Horn size is widely assumed to relate to genital size, though there is absolutely no basis to this in actual fact. Groups of males still rag on friends with the smallest horns all the same.
As the newly-matured bulls finish their transformation, hormonal shifts trigger subtly altered pheromones to be released, allowing for basic emotional information to be communicated on a nonverbal, subconscious level. Treated females are receptive and have pheromones of their own, allowing members of the opposite sexes to rapidly assess the other's level of attraction with a minimum of social posturing. Untreated females may note a slight musk in the air, and may still respond to more basic pheromonal signals on a lesser level. It is not uncommon for bulls to attempt to seduce female tourists using as few words as possible, a social competition that is frowned upon in polite society but persists all the same.
Many other mutations can occur on top of the basic effects. The most common are listed below:
- Animal phalli: Gaining a bestial member is a very common side-effect that dates back to the usage of animal-sourced DNA to create some of the early treatment effects. Rather than eliminate this effect, modern version of the treatment appear to have had it enhanced to allow for even greater variety and improved aesthetics. Horse, dog, and great cat members are familiar sights on the bulls of New Texas.
- Furred legs and or arms: Coarse fur will sometimes grow over the limbs and very rarely on the chest.
- Increased amounts of facial hair: Facial hair always grows faster post-treatment, but some bulls find it to be denser, courser, and cover areas that it did not grow in before.
- A cow tail: Many consider this to be a sign of strength.
- Bovine ears.
- Doubled testes: The sudden division of one pair of nuts into two makes for a weightier sack and an uncomfortable time sitting in certain ways, but it allows for messier, more virile ejaculations.
- Exceptional pheromones: Some individuals’ pheromone glands go into overdrive, resulting in a disruptive cloud of musk that can easily overwhelm the unprepared.
The above is information is a limited brief covering the basics of the infamous "Treatment." Other good sources of data include GalaxyMD or the popular erotic chronicle, The Treatment, written by Nivas Oxonef and inspired by a true story.
