According to the latest research from Rutgers University, researchers Dr. Barry Komisaruk and Nan Wise, previously a sex therapist prior to entering academica, have amassed scientific evidence showing that sexual orgasm delivers a trifecta of significantly enriching health benefits that stimulate the entire brain more potently and pervasively that engaging in puzzles or other cognitive stimulation exercises.
The research shows that when sexual climax is reached a combined physiological dosing mechanism rapidly works to deliver heightened oxygenation, critical cognitive nutrients, and improved blood circulation to over 30 different parts of the brain. Meanwhile, mental exercises such as crossword puzzles, reading, or other cognitive activities only stimulate far more limited or compartmentalized regions of the brain.
To carry out the test, Rutgers researchers recruited volunteers willing to bring themselves to sexual orgasm while fMRI monitors measured the blood flow to various regions of the brain. Such experiments revealed that improved brain activation occurred similarly for both men and women. Results of their research may have far-reaching applications such as improved pain reduction technique, touch memory, and behavioral-reward therapy frequently employed in counseling and other psychological fields of study.
