As stated in this article, a study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that even just thinking about a sexual encounter that you have had can enhance your analytic thinking skills. Another study (conducted on rats) indicated that sexually active rodents had more neurons in their hippocampus (a brain region responsible for the storage of memories) than virgin rats. Improvements in brainpower were lost after sexual activity was stopped.

Research on the female orgasm using fMRI technology has indicated that sexual climax activates as many as 30 areas of the brain. Blood flows in carrying a surge of nutrients and oxygen to the brain cells. By contrast, popular brain stimulation activities such as doing Sudoku, crosswords, or playing memory games each engage only a handful at best. Share if you agree!
