Being Sexually Active Can Benefit Your Brain in Surprising Ways

If you needed more reasons to keep your sex life active, this study may have just found a pretty convincing one.

It turns out that regular sexual activity could make you smarter - or at least keep your brain from ageing - those are the results of a recent British study.

Combine business with pleasure

This is a part of the pleasure that awaits you. The more you go to the seventh heaven with your partner, the more intelligent you become. It’s better than doing math though, isn’t it?

The study was conducted with 73 participants between the ages of 50 and 83, including 28 men and 45 women. Of the 73, 37 had sexual intercourse at least once a week, 26 once a month and 10 were celibate. During the study, certain tests were carried out to test their cognitive functions such as memory, language, etc.

The results were amazing as the people who had sex frequently performed better on the tests than the people who didn’t.

For scientists, there is not necessarily a link between brain activity and sexual activity, or at least not yet anyway, but sex can still play a major role in brain function.

Indeed, sex releases neurohormones like dopamine that boost signal transmission through the nervous system and brain, so it could affect the cognitive functions of the individual, but it isn’t yet certain. However, there have been certain studies linking climaxing to certain physiological benefits.

In any case, if you want to bolster your brainpower, you know what to do!
