study suggests sex boosts brain growth

Sex apparently can help the brain grow, according to new findings in rats.

Sexually active rodents also seemed less anxious than virgins, Princeton scientists discovered.

Past findings had shown that stressful, unpleasant events could stifle brain cell growth in adults. To see if pleasant albeit stressful experiences could have the opposite effect, researchers studied the effects of sex in rats.

Scientists played matchmaker by giving adult male rats access to sexually receptive females either once daily for two weeks or just once in two weeks. They also measured blood levels of stress hormones known as glucocorticoids, which researchers suspected might lie behind the detrimental effects that unpleasant experiences have on the brain.

When compared with male virgins, both groups of sexually active rats had cell proliferation, or an increase in the number of neurons, in the hippocampus, a part of the brain linked with memory whose cells are especially sensitive to unpleasant experiences. The rats that had more sex also had adult brain cells grow, as well as a rise in the number of connections between brain cells.

However, the rodents that only saw females once in two weeks had elevated levels of stress hormones, while the rats that had regular access showed no increase in the hormones. Sexually experienced rodents also proved less anxious than virgins, in that they were quicker to chomp down on food in unfamiliar environs.

These findings suggest that while stress hormones can be detrimental to the brain, these effects can be overridden if whatever experiences triggered them were pleasant.

The scientists detailed their findings online July 14 in the journal PLoS ONE.

it's bs, because otherwise, masturbation would count and every guy would be a mensa member by age 21.

:lol:


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Not really... its something a bit more complicated than self-pleasing. Think pheromones and that special feeling you get from certain visual stimuli. Apparently that does things to ya.

So watching porn, for example, can raise your IQ? You could test that theory but having the test subjects write answers to a test with their free hand.

They say men create better and more sperm when we watch other men have sex with women we want. In porn, for example.

Simple biology. We have to procreate and since we have "competition" our body naturally responds by making more swimmers and upping the chances of impregnating a female.

Hmmm... Seriously... possibly a combination of pheromones and visual perception, along with the physical exercise that benefits the brain. You've heard that Alzeimer's symptoms are reduced in patients that have had more active lifestyles?

But we definitely could submit these ideas for further experimentation. Maybe in some brain imaging format.

I won't be volunteering to clean up afterwards.

Yeap, that's about what I read. I wonder if that's true for visiting strip clubs too. Does watching a naked Russian hottie make love to a pole do wonders for male sperm, or do I need to see a man make love to her?

It's also been shown that if you present an attractive female to a male that has already ejaculated, he'll 'come back' faster than if you offered him the same female again.

All about the procreation. +1

Americans will do anything to get out of studying. Studying, doing well in school, reading books, etc are considered "gay" and if you do slightly better than anyone else, you're singled out as the nerd or the geek. Down the road when working at the auto body shop gets so rough and so daunting, you are left with the one thing that you were blessed with: your #######. You base all of your masculinity and what it means to be a person around your ####### (and tits for women.)

And now there are studies to prove one would become smart if only they can manage to submerge their tool inside another person's ####### or #######. I wonder if inward bellybutton counts considering 70% of Americans are fat and have bellybuttons as deep as their #######. Probably deeper.
