From the Inside Flap
“Today, thanks to breakthroughs in neuroscience research techniques, scientists have been able to literally view the activity of the brain as it functions. With state-of-the-art mapping and imaging tools, researchers have unlocked a new world of data on what happens between your ears each day. In addition, new methods of tracking brain chemicals have allowed scientists to understand when and how much of these chemicals are released and how they influence behavior. We now have scientific studies about brain function and sexual thoughts and behavior that are not only fascinating but are true breakthroughs in our understanding of ourselves and the intriguing part of our behavior called sex.
And yes, this new science does establish once and for all that more happens during sex than physical activity or the transfer of secretions, sperm, or germs. What we now know from science is what some have been saying for years—that the largest and most important sex organ is the brain. In fact, the brain itself is being molded by sexual behavior.”
From the Back Cover
“I had no idea having sex as a teenager could affect the rest of my life.”
What does a three-pound brain have to do with one’s sex life? A lot, actually.
Breakthroughs in the burgeoning field of neuroscience explain the impact of sex on the developing brains of adolescents and young adults.
Through scientific data put in layman’s terms, this book demonstrates that:
- Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners.
- Breaking these bonds can cause depression and make it harder to bond with someone else in the future.
- Chemicals released in the brain during sex can become addictive.
- The human brain is not fully developed until a person reaches their mid-20s. Until then, it is harder to make wise relationship decisions.
Parents and others who care about young people now have the facts to steer them away from making life-changing mistakes, and lead them toward reaching their full potential.

I highly recommend this book for factual data on the matter. Adults, teens and kids are suffering because of the cultures current attitude toward and misinformation surrounding casual sexual activity.
