As I was reading my daily blog email I stumbled upon a blog that really caught my attention. One that I took a few notes on and would like to share what I have learned from reading this blog. My subject pretty much sums it up. I am also interested in learning more how psychology plays such a big role in the human mind. I would like to learn more how a persons personality reflects their sexuality. I find this stuff very interesting.
We all know that love is a powerful drug its actually comparable to being addicted to crack cocaine literally. It releases a feel good chemical in your brain or a “high” that leaves you with an enhanced mood, a heightened sexual interest and a boost of self confidence. not to mention impaired judgement that can influence you to make poor decisions in the dark of the night that you can come to regret in the light of day or also know as the morning after.
On causal sex hookups or one night stands the morning after 80% of men have positive thoughts and only 54% women have positive thoughts.
poor mental state and causal sex do reinforce each other- in both men and women. those who reported serious thoughts of suicide or more depressive symptoms as teens were more likely to engage in causal sex as young adults, conducted by researches from Ohio State and published in the Journal of Sex Research.
There is a “Hookup” Gene, in studying human sexual behavior, a persons DNA may be to blame when it comes to infidelity and sexual promiscuity. 181 young adults surveyed on their sexual history and tested for a gene called DRD4, which affects levels of dopa-mine in the brain and has been accossicated with ADHD, alcoholism, as well as compulsive, risk taking behaviors such as partying and gambling. 49 of these young adults were found positive with this gene.
