You probably do not need any extra incentive to have more sex. After all, pleasure itself is already a beautiful stimulus, right?
But in any case, the noble scientists at Coventry University in the UK have an argument for increasing our sexual frequency: it makes you smarter.
In a study of 73 people, those who reported having sex at least once a week performed better on cognitive tests. In other words? They had higher brain power.
Researchers believe the reason for this is that the more sex we do, the more dopamine our brain produces, a neurotransmitter important for cognitive functions. 🧬 Another reason is that sex is a social, physical and mental activity, which protects our neurons as we get older.
