  • The Holiday Season Sex Effect

    Sex is a seasonal matter: in the U.S., there’s a spike in sexual activity during the cold, winter months, and then another, smaller spike during early summer. For example, we already know that during these two times of the year, condom sales shoot up, first intercourse happens more often, and children are more often conceived. Consequently, abortions and STI diagnoses increase in the first 3 months of the year and in late summer-early fall. (Here‘s a review paper on this.)

Is there a neural correlate to #nonmonogamy? A new study with a sample size of 10 monogamous and 10 non-monogamous men (mean age of 34) sought to find out. In this study, researchers examined participants’ brain activation in response to sexual and romantic stimuli. Results indicated that monogamous men showed more reward-related neural activity when viewing images designed to evoke the concepts of #love and #romance (including images independent of the participants’ own relationships) compared to non-monogamous men. Areas with increased activation for monogamous men were all in the right hemisphere and included the thalamus, accumbens, striatum, pallidum, insula, and orbitofrontal cortex. There were *no* significant differences between groups in activation to sexual stimuli. These results demonstrate that the neural processing of romantic images is different for monogamous and non-monogamous men, suggesting that non-monogamy is not just a random choice.
