How sex boosts brain power, memory

As you get older one of the biggest things that go is your brain function, your memory starts to fade, and you can't remember things like you used to, but no need to panic, just have sex.

A study conducted by The Manchester University surveyed 1,700 people between the ages of 58 and 98,turns out, the test subjects who were still sexually active had better brain power. The study also found a third of women and even more men over the age of 70 are still getting it on.

This is not the first study that has shown sex keeps the brain healthy.

A 2010 study found sexual activity promotes cell growth in the hippocampus, the area in the brain that controls long-term memory.

Considering that it is said that the brain is a very important sexual organ, this makes sense!
