Note to Men: Sex Makes the Brain Grow

Related Topics: Wife, Culture, girlfriend, Companionship

In an experiment involving lab rats, sex was correlated with adult brain growth.



Since previous studies have shown that stressful, unpleasant situations can hinder brain growth, researchers
from Princeton University wanted to see if stressful but pleasurable
situations -- like sex -- would achieve the opposite effect
. So,
they divided male lab rats into three groups: The rats in one group were
given sex partners daily, the second group got set up with female
companionship once every two weeks and the third group got nothing at
all.



The rats that had regular sex showed adult brain growth, as well as an
increase in the connections between brain cells. As a possible effect of
their larger brains, the sexually experienced rats were less anxious
and quicker to eat food in an unfamiliar environment than the un-sexed
rodents.



If you can't figure out a way to use this study to get more action from your wife or girlfriend, you really need to be having more sex.

    Now we know why "The Scarecrow of Ozbama," Algore, is trying so hard to find sex, post-tipper. He thinks that, if he can force a masseuse to have sex, he will grow a brain.

    Sorry Algore, even though you are a rat, it's too late for you. Anthropogenic Global Warming has taken its toll on you. The earth is past your "Tipper Point." Bactium
