Best. News. Ever. No excuses to not go out and get laid now, Bros. The very act is MAKING YOU SMARTER. Via The Daily Mail:

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.

“We discovered that even though there had been the production of new neurons, the cognitive abilities acquired during the experiment decreased once the mice were subjected to long periods without sexual activity,” they said.

Increased sexual activity floods an individual’s brain cells with oxygen, they noted. Neurons are a specialised type of cell which make up the basic building blocks of the nervous system.
