Great news here, guys! A new study by University of Maryland scientists thinks “doin’ it” improves your cognitive abilities. Here’s what the Daily Mail had to say about the discovery.

The latest research, conducted on mice, found that love-making greatly increased the creation of neurons located within the hippocampus, an area of the brain that is responsible for the formation of long-term memory.

And stopping the mice from having sex led to a fall-off in their intelligence, the psychologists from the University of Maryland were quoted as saying.

Jesus! This is just about the best news ever. The “why should I sleep with you?” question can now be answered with definitive proof. “Because, honey, it will make you smarter.”

Use this new-found intelligence wisely. And frequently, because, fuck it, we should all be smarter.
