Men­tal Fore­play, Any­one ?

Cosmopolitan (India) - - MEN & YOU -

Meet JA­SON SILVA, 31, host of Na­tional Ge­o­graphic’s hit show Brain Games. Fit­tingl he is ob­sessed with the brain—“It’s your sex­i­est or­gan!”—and is here to re­veal a few Jedi mind tricks that’ll heat up any re­la­tionsh We’re lis­ten­ing!

If You’ve Just Started Dat­ing

Silva’s a big fan of philoso­pher Rich Doyle, who says new cou­ples should “scram­ble their egos”. Do things that lower your guard and dis­arm your self­con­scious­ness. It brings you closer.


Go sky­div­ing or rock climb­ing to­gether. Thrilling, fear-in­duc­ing stuff amps up your adren­a­line, which dis­solves your walls and turns you both on.


Re­veal your fear of pub­lic speak­ing. Ad­mit­ting your vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties makes you seem more re­lat­able, boost­ing in­ti­macy in you both.

If You’ve Been With Him for a While

To avoid he­donic adap­ta­tion—when yo brain adapts to the fam (your part­ner) and yo senses get less arouse try new things. Do­ing makes your brain fi plea­sure hor­mones


Watch him make a big pre­sen­ta­tion. See­ing your guy in his el­e­ment sparks dopamine in your brain and gives you the hots for him all over again.


Plan a girls’ week­end. Part­ing ways and think­ing about be­ing to­gether later re­ally does make you fonder of some­one fa­mil­iar. Spark, reignited!
