If you thought all being a hoe brought you was a few orgasms, a couple STIs and shame – you could be wrong… A study conducted by researchers at Duke University, North Carolina has found that the more sex you have, the more spiritual you could be. Sort of. They increased the levels of Oxytocin (a natural hormone that is released in the brain during sex) in a number of middle-aged men.

It’s thought that Oxytocin is also linked to other behavioural traits, like better social-bonding (well, if there’s currently a person inside you – we should hope so), more trusting and empathetic. Men who received the boost (including Atheists) reported higher levels of spirituality. No shit – ’cause they constantly felt like they’d just emptied their sack. Let’s give some to Trump, mellow the cunt out.

When faced with spiritual statements, like “all life is interconnected” and “there is a higher plane of consciousness or spirituality that binds all people,” they responded more positively than those who hadn’t had the shot. They were also more likely to exert attributes such as gratitude, ambition, hope, inspiration and love. So is that why all them thots are on Grindr one minute and then moaning about being single af the next?

Researcher Patty states: “We were interested in understanding biological factors that may enhance those spiritual experiences. Oxytocin appears to be part of the way our bodies support spiritual beliefs.” Hear that boys? Don’t forget to say your Hail Mary’s while your mouth is full of cock. Well, if you’re kneeling anyway, might as well kill two birds with one stone – it’s called efficiency. AMEN.
