Oxford University and Coventry University researchers performed the study on people aged between 50 and Having sex improved brain function as you age according to a study by Midland university boffins. According to research compiled by Coventry University and Oxford University, being more sexually active as you age can make you more intelligent.
Those who had sex more often, scored higher on tests that measured their verbal fluency and their ability to visually perceive objects and the spaces between them. Watch the video at the top of the story for all the information you need to know at a glance. Participants filled in a questionnaire on how often, on average, they had engaged in sexual activity over the past 12 months - whether that was never, monthly or weekly - as well as answering questions about their general health and lifestyle.
The 28 men and 45 women also took part in a standardised test, which is typically used to measure different patterns of brain function in older adults, focussing on attention, memory, fluency, language and visuospatial ability.
This included verbal fluency tests in which participants had 60 seconds to name as many animals as possible, and then to say as many words beginning with F as they could - tests which reflect higher cognitive abilities. They also took part in tests to determine their visuospatial ability which included copying a complex de and drawing a clock face from memory. In the verbal and visuospatial tests participants who engaged in weekly sexual activity scored the most highly, with the verbal fluency tests showing the strongest effect.
The suggested that frequency of sexual activity was not linked to attention, memory or language. In these tests, the participants performed just as well regardless of whether they reported weekly, monthly or no sexual activity.

This study expanded on research fromwhich found that older adults who were sexually active scored higher on cognitive tests than those who were not sexually active. But this time the research looked more specifically at the impact of the frequency of sexual activity and whether frequency of sexual activity made a difference. It also used a broader range of tests to investigate different areas of cognitive function. The academics say further research could look at how biological elements, such as dopamine and oxytocin, could influence the relationship between sexual activity and brain function to give a fuller explanation of their findings.
