How sex is rewiring your brain—for good and for bad
What does a three-pound brain have to do with one’s sex life? A lot, actually.
Hooked is about what’s happening to your brain when you’re having sex. With scientific data put in layman’s terms, this book demonstrates that:
- Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners. This is great news for marriages!
- Once formed, however, breaking these bonds can have damaging effects on the brain such as depression and difficulty bonding with someone else in the future.
- The continual forming and breaking of these bonds can have permanent effects on a person’s brain.
PLUS! This updated edition also includes a brand new chapter about the effects of pornography on the brain.
