Sex stimulates intellect

German scientists claim that regular sex makes people smarter

Everyone is aware that sex is a rather pleasant activity. Scientists as well praise sex and discover more and more healthy advantages of it. Indeed, it is good for the body and soul, incredibly healthy in all aspects. German scientists went even further declaring that regular sex makes people smarter.

Leading specialists from the Medical research Center in Hamburg managed to draw such strange correlation between one’s physical and intellectual capabilities. According to the author of such fascinating research study Mr. Werner Habermel, regular sexual intercourses stimulate development of one's intellect.

However, you should not get carried away thinking that it is possible to get smarter simply by doing what you enjoy the most. Sex will not make you Einstein. Nonetheless, there is some truth to Habermel's reasoning.

The scientist claims that such substances as adrenalin and hydrocortisone (hormone of adrenal gland) are secreted in large quantities during foreplay and sexual intercourse. Together, these substances stimulate the grey matter of the brain, which in turn stimulates intellectual activity.

Obviously, one should not wholeheartedly stick to Habermel's assumptions. Hormones will always be hormones, and we should refrain ourselves from such important sources of knowledge as books. Therefore, we suggest that instead of inviting your girlfriend over for a night before finals, you should review your notes and study hard. In the end, neither the German scientist nor your girlfriend will be responsible for your grade.
