Want To Increase Your Brain Power? Have S[e]x!

By Robert Paul Reyes


"S[e]x apparently can help the brain grow, according to new findings in rats.

brainS[e]xually active rodents also seemed less anxious than vi[r]gins, Princeton scientists discovered.

When compared with male vi[r]gins, both groups of s[e]xually active rats had cell proliferation, or an increase in the number of neurons, in the hippocampus, a part of the brain linked with memory whose cells are especially sensitive to unpleasant experiences. The rats that had more s[e]x also had adult brain cells grow, as well as a rise in the number of connections between brain cells." LiveScience

If you want to increase your brain power you would be well advised to let an egghead write that paper on the philosophical implications of quantum mechanics, and knock boots with a girl. If you come home late because you hooked up with a floozy just tell your wife that you were expanding the horizons of your brain.

My head is so big that my friend calls me Jupiter, but now I can boast that I need a large head for my large brain. And hello, you know why I have a large brain.

The study showed that s[e]xually experienced rats were less anxious and more bold than vi[r]gin rats. I`m not surprised, guys who bed a lot of ladies gain confidence that translates into success into any endeavor they undertake.

Moral of this story: If you want to be a success in life, imitate Tiger Woods.
