OK, so now it's proven (again). To all you singles or work-a-holics out there, you just got to find yourself a partner to have sex with. An article in New Scientist referring to a study done by Stuart Brody and Tillmann H. C. Krüger (The post-orgasmic prolactin increase following intercourse is greater than following masturbation and suggests greater satiety) shows its a propable couse to claim that having sex with a partner is 400% more satisfying than taking the matters into your own hands.
The key to understanding this is the hormone prolaktin. Having an orgasm makes your body produce more of this hormone. It actually seems like your body is producing prolaktin to decrease your "turn on" after having an orgasm. Therefor, the more of this hormone you produce after sex, the more satisfying the sex has been. Now there has been made three studies where singles or couples were masturbating or having intercourse. The ones having intercourse produced 400% more of prolaktin than the ones doing it on their own.
Now, why the hell am I writing about this in a tech-blog. Well, I'm not single, but I was sort of thinking of all you singles out there. Truely feeling sad for you, and was hoping sending out a little challenge could help you.
So here is the challenge: Isn't there a gadget-wiz out there that can design a tool that is handy for masturbating and that at the same time increases the production of prolaktin like 500%? I'm sure that would silence the scientists.
