Sex and Brain Power Over 50

Over 50 and worried about your memory and cognitive skills?

Sex is Good For Cognitive Function?

Recent research findings show a significant association between sexual activity and cognitive function in adults over 50. In the study, sexually active men scored higher on memory skills and executive function tests than men who weren't sexually active. Sexually active women had higher scores on just the memory tests. According to the researchers, the reason women's sex lives appeared to benefit only their memory skills may be due to hormonal differences that influence brain function in men and women in different ways.

So, keep on keepin' on.
