For all you men out there 50 and older, you have a new weapon to use with your wives and girlfriends to persuade them to have sex with you.
According to a study published this week in The Journals of Gerontology, Series B: Psychological and Social Sciences, the more sexual activity those over 50 have, the more their brain function improves.
The research tested 73 people between the ages of 50 and 83 who participated in a standardized test to measure attention, memory, verbal fluency, language and visuospatial ability. The most improved brain function as a result of more sex came in verbal fluency and visuospatial tests, especially verbal fluency.
So if you women out there prefer the strong, silent type, avoid sex with him; he may unleash a torrent of words if you get frisky.
