If there weren’t already enough reasons to be having more sex, scientists have now provided you with one more.
Apparently indulging in a little bedroom action can boost your brain power.
According to LiveScience, researchers at Princeton University examined the behaviour of a group of rats, half of which were having regular nookie and half of which were virgins.
They found that the sexually active rodents were less stressed and anxious than those who weren’t getting any action.
This led them to suggest that sex can actually help the brain to grow, as previous studies have show that stress and anxiety can stifle the development of brain cells.
Whether or not the research is conclusive remains to be seen. But sex does have numerous other proven benefits.
For example, it can boost your mood, help you burn calories and help you get a good night’s sleep.
