Sex knowledge – Sex can make you smarter?

During sex, your brain releases oxytocin, a mediator of well-being, social interaction, growth and healing.

Sex feels good – that’s a no-brainer. But when it comes to real brain chemistry, there’s even more reason to feel good about feeling good, because sex has very real, very positive effects on the brain.

Here are some little-known brain benefits of mind-blowing sex;

 

Self confidence

Regardless of how confident you are, this is nature giving you a feel-good self-esteem boost. On the other hand, not getting enough sex can cause angst, self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy.

 

Stress relief

Stress is a normal part of everyday life, but like any problem – the sooner it is dealt with, the better. During sex, your brain releases oxytocin, a mediator of well-being, social interaction, growth and healing.

Critical thinking

Thinking about sex can be rather distracting at times, right? In a 2009 study conducted in Amsterdam, Förster discovered that individuals who were thinking about sex were better at critical thinking than those who weren’t.

 

Memory

According to a study performed by Princeton’s Psychology Department, rats, which have a similar mammalian physiology to us humans, have a higher capacity for memory the more they have sex.

The experiment’s data showed that an increase in sex promoted cellular growth in the hippocampus, an area of the brain that controls memory.

 

Pain relief

Our brains house what scientists have matter-of-factly labelled the pleasure centre, which is linked to the reward circuitry that encourages us to do things that feel good.

When the reward circuit is triggered, the brain releases beta-endorphins, which decreases pain and vasopressin, increasing the feeling of human bonding – leaving us able to think more clearly.
