5 Strange Side Effects of Sex

0

Sex is something everyone loves, but never get it enough. It is the one activity that makes our brains and bodies feel an overall sensual stimulation. We feel the whole spectrum of emotions, yet that isn’t all that sex does for us.

Here are 5 examples of the strange sexual side effects that are common today.

1. Sex Makes You Feel Sleepy

It is the old stereotype that all men roll over and fall asleep after a good bedroom romp. This generalization is for most of us, absolutely true.

The most widely accepted science states that orgasmic release requires tremendous amounts of blood flow within the brain. Nearly 70 percent of the blood in our brains goes to the left hemisphere during an orgasm, this causes lesser numbers of active neurons. This will cause a person to get sleepy.

Another answer is found by analyzing the brain, chemically speaking. Immediately following an orgasm or ejaculation, the brain releases enormous amounts of endorphins. Our bodies react to this endorphin release, much like a shot of morphine. We become relaxed, brain activity slows down and so do our cerebral functions. Leading to sweet dreams and a pleasantly restful state.

2. Having Sex Increases Brain Power

A number of modern studies have suggested that having sex actually increases brain productivity, due to increasing the size and power of the brain itself. Such theories suggest that the brain get bigger from sexual activity, because of the increased flow of blood that sex activates physiologically.

Lab rats used in this sexual research were allowed to have more sex. This stimulated accelerated growth of cells within the hippocampus, the area which stores memories. It is assumed that the same maybe true for human males, but could be seen to be an increase of brain activity and only happens in order to achieve greater amounts of sexual access.

3. Some Dangerous Sexual Problems

Not every sexual side effect is positive and beneficial. In fact, there are a couple of things to watch out for, as a sexually active individual.

One is called transient global amnesia, meaning losing your memory temporarily after having very intense sex. This condition happens in only 3 to 5 people per 100,000 in the world annually. It is a total amnesic state lasting several hours, after which their memory returns, but is completely erased during the brief time period.

Another dangerous sexual side effect is having a brain aneurism. There isn’t much data on this one, but it happens often enough to be recorded in modern medical and scientific journals. Apparently, the occasional individual dies from mind blowing sex. It is assumed this is a more frequent occurrence with males.

4. Watching Porn Shuts Down Brain Activity

This is a more predominantly male issue, but maybe impacting some women. The theory is that visual activity usually increases alertness and focus on whatever is being done, but the reverse happens while viewing pornography. The act of watching people have sex, actually distracts the brain enough to ignore all other mental activities.

The brain focuses on the sex it is viewing, to the neglect of anything else. So much so, that anything being attempted becomes less productive, almost like being under the influence. Pornography might not impact every individual to the same degree, but all humans are drawn to such visual stimulation and find it hard to ignore.

5. Physical Fitness and Tantric Exercise

Sexual activity is a very powerful formula for physical fitness. The ancient martial arts viewed tantric sex as a way to achieve harmony with the mind, body and spiritual self. In truth, having sex uses nearly all the muscular positions and flexible parts of the human body, at least when done with some enthusiasm.

Tantric based exercise, even the most mundane and ordinary versions of it, can help keep our bodies healthy. Physical fitness is one of the best side effects that sex has to offer and the most enjoyable, as well.

In Conclusion

It turns out that our sex lives can make us do weird things, without knowing it. Some of the stranger side effects from sexual activity are beneficial, while others are dangerous to experience. So it might be nice to be aware of them.
