Frequent love-making doesn’t just make a woman shine. A recent study by a university in Canada has proved that women who have intercourse more often have a better memory, compared to those who don’t or those who have less intercourse.
Studies from a team of scientists in McGill University in Canada found that young women who engage in traditional intercourse have better memory retention than those who are less active.
The research looked into how penile-v@ginal intercourse affects a woman’s brain when it comes to remembering abstract words and people’s faces.
The scientists asked 78 straight women ages 18-29 about their love lives. Afterwards, they were given memory tests that measured short-term recall and memory function.
After tabulation, the results showed that women who frequently engage in love-making had higher scores in remembering abstract words.
The results were published in Archives of S*xual Behaviour.
The researchers of this study said that intercourse can improve the growth of tissue in the hippocampus, which can translate into better memory performance.
The reason why remembering faces is not affected is because images are reliant on other parts of the brain and are not associated with the hippocampus directly.
According to Jens Pruessner, a psychology professor at McGill University involved in the study:
“The chemicals involved with signaling reward to the brain, hormones and neurotransmitters, have been shown to be associated with both memory and s*xual activity.The study now supports the initial hypothesis of earlier studies stating that humans can have better memory with frequent love-making. Studies with animals on the same hypothesis have already been proven to be true
