It has been widely stated that on an average, men think about love making 19 times a day while women think of it a total of 10 times a day. Since we’re open-minded people, we’re not going to weigh in on this theory with our opinion. One’s thing’s for sure though - the thought of love making can have some pretty astonishing side effects – erections at the wrong times included. What’s even more astonishing are the things that happen with your brain DURING this beautiful act. Yes, you read that right. While you’re down there, some pretty interesting things are going on at your upper level without you even realising it. Fear not, though, as the love making effects are completely harmless in nature and are actually quite beneficial. Don’t believe us? Then let’s get down to discovering the astonishing effects of love making on the brain.

The age-old excuse “Honey, not today, I got a splitting headache” should be an excuse no more. Why, you ask? It’s because research shows that lovemaking can effectively cure you of a headache or migraine as well as increase your tolerance for pain. Aching to do it yet?

A 2016 study found that love making is linked with the growth of nervous tissue in the hippocampus – an area of the brain associated with a woman’s memory. So, the next time your partner promises you a night you’ll never forget, chances are you actually won’t!

Men, we’re looking at you here. You’re more likely to snooze after hitting the sheets due to the prefrontal cortex area of the brain - which is responsible for your cognitive behaviour and decision making - shutting down after ejaculation. So yeah, the next time you want to put insomnia to bed, maybe you should consider rocking it with some coitus.

Love making is truly a pleasure due to it being responsible for the release of dopamine - a neurotransmitter that charges up the reward centre of the brain. Now you know - the secret to being happy is to get some!

Yup, that’s 100% true. When you’re in a naughty state of mind, you’re less likely to get grossed out by things that you’d normally cringe at when you’re not in the mood. Why else is the thought of going down on your partner highly attractive when you’re turned on as compared to the time you’re sipping on your favourite cuppa coffee?

This, ladies and gentlemen, is where we take leave. While love making has some extremely positive effects on the brain, indulging in it with a condom should always be a no-brainer. We have a wide range of them to further stimulate your naughty mind. Until the next time 😊.
