Turns out “losing yourself in the moment” during sex isn’t just a romantic phrase: It’s science.

A new study suggests the rhythmic nature of getting it on makes people lose self-awareness and control.

Turns out “losing yourself in the moment” during sex isn’t just a romantic phrase: It’s science.

A new study suggests the rhythmic nature of getting it on makes people lose self-awareness and control.

So orgasms really are mind-blowing. The study, published in the journal Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology, compares the rhythm of sex to the meditative effect of pushing someone on a swing (except a lot more fun). It causes neurons in the brain to oscillate at the same frequency.

Lead researcher Adam Safron wants people to stop viewing sex in terms of pleasure only, and start looking at it as a totally different state of mind.

So the next time you and bae want to get freaky, focus less on the destination and more on the journey. Paying more attention to rhythm, Safron argues, will make banging better for the both of you.
