How Having Sex Can Make It Bigger

It’s true: Regular sex can actually make your organ grow, according to a new study. Just not necessarily in the way you might think.

Got a question for Dr. Smartass? E-mail doc [at] esarcasm.com.

Dr. SmartassWhen it comes to a certain part of the anatomy, most men (and most of their significant others) wish there were a magic way to make it bigger. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen — sorry, Tiny Tim. You can, however, enlarge another important organ just by putting your below-the-belt buddy to good use.

From my trusty inbox:

Dear Dr. Smartass,

How can I make it bigger?


My good friend Ed, you didn’t specify a head — so your dear doc is going to assume you meant the one atop your neck!

Sex, it turns out, may actually help your brain grow. How’s that for a pickup line, fellas?

Shocked WomanAccording to researchers at Princeton, sexually active adults actually experience an increase in the number of neurons within their hippocampus. The more action going on below the equator, the more connections formed in the ol’ noggin. Virgins, in comparison, don’t see any of this change.

Now, your dear Dr. S would be remiss if he didn’t point out that this research has thus far only been conducted on rats. But technically, you wouldn’t be lying if you told a lovely lass that you’d heard a healthy romp can make the brain grow bigger. I tried the line out myself earlier this evening, and let me tell you: It definitely works.


  The size of your organ is no small thing
  Your brain, that is — not your ding-ding
  So fornicate often; with vigor, you’ll bang
  And soon you’ll forget the small size of your wang

Until next time,

Dr. Smartass
