6 Ways Sex Affects Your Brain




6 Ways Sex Affects Your Brain

We were emailed this great Article by Corrine Smith for us to share with you all also be sure to check out their great site to.Thank you
  1. It Makes You Want More

    The major neurochemical that’s affected by sexual activity is dopamine. 
    Dopamine is the control center for survival mechanisms and cravings.
     It’s also the neurotransmitter whose reuptake is inhibited in the 
    use of cocaine. All this to say, sex is a drug. The more you have,
     the more you crave. And that’s the chemical truth.
  2. It Makes You Want To Cuddle

    When you have sex, oxytocin is released, pair-bonding you to the 
    person that you’re shagging. Oxytocin is released in higher doses 
    after a female orgasm, while male orgasms release more dopamine — 
    activating the addictive reward brain centers, not the “cuddle hormone.”
  3. During an Orgasm, You Literally Go Insane

    Your brain is affected in numerous ways at the point of climax, 
    with thirty brain centers being activated during female orgasm. 
    Your nervous system short circuits and your pain centers are numbed, 
    just by the act of finishing the deed. Scientists at Rutgers have the 
    studies to prove it — a good old-fashioned orgasm jumbles up the 
    brain so much, it can make you all but paralyzed (seriously) by pleasure.
  4. It Can Make You A Junkie

    Sex addiction is a real thing, just like drugs and alcohol. 
    Anything you do compulsively can turn into an addiction, 
    and having mega amounts of sex can incite junkie-like behavior. 
    Your pleasure centers are affected upon orgasm, and endorphins 
    and dopamine are affected and released. If you get more high than 
    you do randy, make sure that your sexual activity is reinforcing 
    positive not destructive behavior. Junkies might get laid in scads, 
    but no one wants the issues that come with compulsive copulating.
  5. It Makes You Feel Good

    If you can’t have sex, eat some chocolate. And if you’re not hungry, 
    whet your appetite for love. Sexual activity releases endorphins 
    (just like chocolate!) and adrenaline (just like running!), making you 
    feel great. Who knew that post-coital glow was chemically founded?
     After a roll in the hay, enjoy the good that you’ve done for your mind and body.
  6. It Makes You Healthier

    A healthy sex life that’s a positive force in your life can work wonders for 
    your brain chemistry and help level you out. The mark of a balanced sex life
     is one that lifts you up, not brings you down. Those suffering from mild 
    depression (which often comes with loss of libido) or other mood 
    disorders can help even out their chemistries by engaging in 
    sexual activity — but you’ve got to make sure that it’s a balanced 
    and healthy situation from square one.
