However, the problem is that the body can’t distinguish whether the person we’re with is a casual fling or marriage material — oxytocin is released either way.
So while it might help you bond with the love of your life, it’s also the reason you may feel so miserable when a short-term relationship ends.
And the more sex you have, the more cells you can grow, it seems.
Animal studies, published in the journal PLo S ONE, suggest that sex stimulates the growth of brain cells in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory and learning.
A key hormone released during sex is oxytocin, also known as the ‘cuddle hormone’.
This lowers our defences and makes us trust people more, says Dr Arun Ghosh, a GP specialising in sexual health at the Spire Liverpool Hospital.
It’s also the key to bonding, as it increases levels of empathy.
Women produce more of this hormone, although it’s not clear why, and this means they are more likely to let their guard down and fall in love with a man after sex.
That’s due to a surge in sex hormones, particularly testosterone, which can help improve concentration and reaction times.
