Use your brain to have hotter sex

Sex is the ultimate head game. Dr. Daniel Amen, a neuroscientist and head of the Amen Clinics, a psychiatric treatment center in Newport Beach, Calif., says a healthy brain can improve your sex life. As the largest and most sensitive organ in the body, the brain can help you heighten your pleasure and make you feel closer to your partner. You can even “brain wash” someone into being attracted to you. Dr. Amen was invited on TODAY to discuss his new book, “Sex on the Brain: 12 Lessons to Enhance Your Love Life.” Since you can never know too much about sex, TODAY asked him to answer some more questions on how you can use your head to be better in bed.

TODAY: How can you use your brain to make sex hotter?
Dr. Daniel Amen: Having a great brain helps you plan to have great sex. Great sex is not just a momentary phenomena, but rather a way of life. The brain is involved with everything we do, from good listening skills, thoughtfulness, kindness, doing something special for our lovers, and remembering what they like (in and out of bed). When the brain works right, it helps you be thoughtful, playful, romantic, intimate, committed, and loving with your partner. When the brain is dysfunctional, it causes you to be impulsive, distracted, addicted, negative, rigid, unfaithful, and even hateful, thus ruining chances for continued intimacy and love. There are many “brain issues” that get in the way of great sex, such as ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), substance abuse, PMS, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and brain injuries. Treating these properly enhances our ability to have amazing love relationships. Read the full article >>
