Great Sex… Your Brain and Bonding
The physical pleasures of sex are real.
But that’s not the whole story…
Sexual arousal releases chemicals in your brain…and that can have some unforeseen results. The latest brain research provides the scientific bases for why sex can never be just physical. Having sex bonds you to the person you are with. The release of oxytocin, neuro-chemicals, and pheromones makes it extremely difficult for people who want to have sex with no strings attached. This is especially true for women. Bonding to the wrong person can put your future at risk.
Emerging neuro-science shows that until age 25 your brain is still developing the ability to evaluate the impact of risk-taking behavior.
Repeated sexual encounters with a variety of people put your ability to establish long-term healthy relationships at risk. Brain chemicals help explain the addiction to pornography and other harmful sexual behaviors. They also explain the strong bond of one person to another in a lifelong love relationship.
Do you know the difference between lust and love? Your brain does.
