What does love have to do with s3x? A lot, reveals a study.

According to the study, nearly all men whose most recent s3xual event occurred with a relationship partner indicated being in love with the partner at the time they had s3x.

‘We found it particularly interesting that the vast majority of men reported s3x with someone they felt `matched’ with in terms of love, meaning that most people who were in love had s3x with the person they loved,’ explained Debby Herbenick of the Indiana University’s school of public health.

Men in love with their partners were significantly more likely to endorse the experience as being extremely or quite a bit pleasurable, compared to s3xual events in which the participant was not in love. Read more about casual s3x.

The study, that also focused on same s3x couples, found that experiences of love are far more similar than different regardless of s3xual orientation.

‘This is the first time a study has described s3xual behaviours engaged in by those men who report being in love, or not, during a given s3xual event with a same-s3x partner,’ added Joshua G. Rosenberger, professor at Virginia-based George Mason University’s college of health and human services.

The study collected data from an Internet-based survey of almost 25,000 gay and bis3xual men residing in the US.

‘Very few people had s3x with someone they loved if that person didn’t love them back. This ‘matching’ aspect of love has not been well explored in previous research, regardless of s3xual orientation,’ Rosenberger added.

The findings were published in the Archives of S3xual Behaviour.

What are the chemical changes that happen in your brain when you are in love?

While poets and writers may have their own explanations of what happens in love, scientists have actually used scanning technology to reveal what happens to your brain when you are in love. And the results are interesting, to say the least.

Your judgement skills shut down

When you are in love, the frontal cortex of your brain responsible for judgement shuts down according to MRI scans. This explains why people are often accused of losing their mind and not thinking practically when they are in love.

Your dopamine levels rise making you feel happy

Dopamine is a brain chemical that gets released in your brain while you are in love giving you the feeling of intense pleasure. This is the same chemical that gets released when you take opioid drugs like cocaine and this goes a long way in explaining how love can be addictive!

Your serotonin levels drop making you feel sad

It has well been documented that love doesn’t just make you happy, but sad too. What happens is that the rise in dopamine during love makes the serotonin levels in your body drop. This chemical is responsible for regulating your mood and appetite and a significant drop can make you feel anxious and jittery. Scientists have found that this drop in serotonin levels during love can be as intense as that seen in people with obsessive compulsive disorder.

Adrenaline might be the key to falling to love

If you experience moments of fear or extreme excitement with someone, it is likely that both of you will fall in love with each other as the simultaneous release of adrenaline in both partners may give a feeling of falling in love.

Besides these, scientists have discovered certain negative aspects to falling in love too! Here are some of them:
