As you know, oxytocin reduces stress and gives a sense of security. It is also associated with love, sexual desire and bonding in a couple. Sexual activity and orgasms increase the production of oxytocin in men and women, which leads to closer emotional relationships.
It’s not for nothing that such dialogues are associated with relationship satisfaction and intimacy. Interestingly, women who have an orgasm are more likely to have such conversations than men or women who have not achieved it. In addition, women respond positively to their partner about relationships. The sexual act itself does not increase the level of trust, but partners can tell each other secrets and communicate information that they would have kept to themselves in a normal conversation.
This interesting term, researchers call sexual satisfaction, which does not pass for some time after intercourse. For some it lasts up to two days! And, of course, it contributes to a closer connection between partners, and at the same time reduces the risk of infidelity.
When a person loves and lusts for someone, the same parts of the brain are active: the thalamus and hippocampus, as well as some areas of the cortex. Researchers observe the same thing if they show erotic photos of strangers, and then ordinary pictures of those who are close to the study participant. So, only parts of the brain are responsible for feelings and desires, what more evidence is needed?!
