Brain Training Orgasms

Now here's a piece of research we really like! So long as we're having great sex we can forget about brain training games, crosswords and Suduko. Scientists have discovered that having an orgasm is a great workout for our brains.

During orgasm activity throughout the brain increases, whereas when you're doing puzzles you're only using a particular part of the brain. They have also confirmed what many of us probably knew, that an orgasm can block pain.

p>Neuroscientist Professor Barry Komisaruk said: "Mental exercises increase brain activity but only in relatively localised regions. Orgasm activates the whole."

The professor studied women and measured their blood flow to their brains as they reached orgasm. He has been studying female arousal since the 1960's and believes there is still a lot we don't know about pleasure.

One of the things he is looking at is whether we can use the brain's pleasure centre to help treat anxiety or addiction or pain.

So there you have it, throw away the games, and get down to the naughty stuff!
