We recently posted an article on a couple studies that showed that sexual activity increases brain cell production and other good stuff for your brain.  But now another study adds clarity to that point which you absolutely need to know because this is your brain and sex life we are talking about.

A new study from the Journal of Sex Research found that porn “interferes with your working memory performance” and reduces cognitive function.  While having real sex with a real person is proven to add to your brain power, watching porn and masturbating actually decreases your multi-tasking ability.  Additionally, if you are having sex to help your brain you still have to be learning new things in between doing the no-pants dance if you want the full advantage because unfortunately sex alone can’t make you smarter. Imagine something of a study/sex/study session- not a bad deal for college students.

So we learned that if you want to be about that life, ironically it looks a lot less like “Don Jon” and more like that of the guys from “Big Bang Theory” (the ones with girlfriends). Porn has never been so disappointing, we apologize for ruining your day.
