… If you don’t have a party trick. You showed up – that’s enough. … If hav­ing more than five in­ter­net tabs open means your brain starts to mal­func­tion.

“For many, sex has con­se­quences. While some can keep it ‘no strings at­tached’, oth­ers will de­velop feel­ings. My re­search shows that sex and the phys­i­o­log­i­cal fire­works in­volved can ac­tu­ally prime the brain for ro­man­tic at­tach­ment, and for some women (and men), the emo­tional re­sponses to sex are part of the plea­sure.
