What's Sex Got To Do With Organizing? (A more technical) Part II

There are so many obvious reasons to have good and safe sex, and there are perhaps even more behind-the-scenes reasons.

For example, sex can prevent colds! "We found that individuals engaging in sexual activity once or twice a week have substantially higher levels of the antibody Immunoglobulin A," reports professor Carl J. Charnetsky of Wilkes University.

Raised levels of oxytocin counters addiction and oxytocin counters use of sweets. Oxytocin is the "love hormone," or the "bonding hormone," and is found in both men and women, with higher levels in women.  Orgasm and childbirth in women both release a rush of this hormone, thus women are bonded to the male sex partner and the new child. In men, vasopressin plays a similar role to bonding as oxytocin plays in women.

So what's all this got to do with organizing, you fairly ask?

Huge factors in anti-organizing (and anti-sex):

  • Stress
  • Distraction
  • Depression
  • Overwhelm
  • Inability to make decisions
  • Isolation

Okay. At least some hormones/neurotransmitters' activity raised due to sex:

Oxytocin

Vasopressin

Dopamine

Serotonin

Effects of raising at least these four:

  • Decreased stress (oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin)
  • Decreased aggression (serotonin)
  • Improved mood (dopamine, serotonine)
  • Increased affection (serotonin, vasopressin, oxytocin)
  • Increased decision-making abilities (dopamine)
  • Increased concentration (vasopressin)

Does it start to make sense?

More sex will physically improve your ability to become organized. If you are dubious, (and even if you're not) please test the theory, and report back.

You sexy organized thing, you.
