Apparently, sex makes the brain grow!
 
In an experiment involving lab rats, sex was correlated with adult brain growth. Since previous studies have shown that stressful, unpleasant situations can hinder brain growth, researchers from Princeton University wanted to see if stressful but pleasurable situations — like intimate encounters — would achieve the opposite effect. So, they divided male lab rats into three groups: The rats in one group were given intimate partners daily, the second group got set up with female companionship once every two weeks and the third group got nothing at all!!
 
The rats that had regular “fun” showed adult brain growth, as well as an increase in the connections between brain cells. As a possible effect of their larger brains, the experienced rats were less anxious and quicker to eat food in an unfamiliar environment than the un-sexed rodents…
 
I wonder if that mean that having more intimate fun with your a-bit-on-the-immature side boyfriend will make his brain grow, make him less anxious and make him more mature?? Or will it just make him more comfortable in strange places where he can eat more beer nuts… don’t know!
