The next time your partner rolls over and you’re tempted to say “I’m not feelin’ it,” perhaps this will change your mind! There is a study that revealed that people who engage in great sex (consistently, we might add), are actually smarter than those who don’t.
No, your man didn’t put us up to saying this. There’s real documentation to support the fact that not only does great sex de-stress you while encouraging you to tap into your creative abilities, it can also sharpen your cognitive thinking as well. This is especially the case if you’re a dirty talker because the more you say, the more it refines your verbal fluency (i.e., word-finding skills).
What especially caught our attention is couples who have sex no less than a couple of times a week (a smart move on its own, if you ask us) are also able to remember more, which increases retention as well as productivity, both at home and at work. Plus, as couples strive to improve their sex lives, listening to their partner, being experimental and being vulnerable to trial and error help to boost their brain power too. It's because they're not just "doing it" but thinking about sex and what can be done to turn it into GREAT SEX.
