Scientists discover how orgasms rewire the brain and lead to lasting connection between partners

Sharing is Caring!

They say sex is the key to a happy marriage – and now science suggests it’s true.

Orgasms rewire the brain in ways that encourage long-term bonding, according to new research.

A team of researchers at The University of Texas at Austin and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory mapped the brains of male and female voles during their three stages of courtship: mating, bonding, and ‘ongoing bond maintenance.’

They found that during these stages, 68 different regions of the brain underwent significant changes, rewiring and forming new connections.

Both members of a pair displayed similar brain changes, and the biggest changes seem to occur when the male has an orgasm.
