Well this is what should be taught in Costa Rica schools since sex education is being debated by the catholic church. Plus I was wondering why I did so well in classes during college. Ahhhhh the memories. Life is a bit harder without alcohol and being able to blame those one night stands on a lack of judgement do to being drunk. Sorry, I digress.
Results of a study recently conducted at the University of Amsterdam show that those who are sexually aroused performed better in critical thinking tests than those who did not – that sex essentially makes you smarter.
The biological benefits of sexual activity are chronicled in detail, with stress reduction and the release of happiness-inducing hormones high on the list of pros.
Evidence gathered by Dr. Jens Forster and other researchers at the University for Amsterdam reportedly found that the release offered by sexual gratification can also promote brain growth, MSN Living reported.
In the study, subjects were given sets of problems that required participants to employ critical thinking in order to solve them. Researchers allegedly observed better performances from those who were thinking about sex than from those participants who were not.
The fashion, relationship and beauty advice website additionally noted a similar study completed at Princeton University in New Jersey that supported the findings of Forster’s team.
In those experiments, scientists reportedly discovered accelerated brain cell growth in sexually active lab rats, when compared to their virgin counterparts.
So the moral of the story is a healthy sex life means a bigger brain. Yay!!!!
