Sex is magical, and brains are mysterious. We all know that. And it can get more mesmerizing when sex and brains are combined.
Who does that? Science says it is the woman’s body that can bring sex and brain functions together in an almost uncanny way.
According to a study conducted by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, women retain and store male DNA in their brains.
Initially, the study sought to find if women that are pregnant with a son may be run a greater risk of getting affected by certain mental diseases. These diseases are more frequent among males.
However, the results astounded the researchers.
What a female can do!
The Researchers revealed that women’s brain can host male DNA. This is possible to a phenomenon called “male microchimerism”. According to Wikipedia, microchimerism “is the presence of a small number of cells that originate from another individual and are therefore genetically distinct from the cells of the host individual.”
The afore-mentioned research disclosed that 63% of the women that participated to the research hosted male DNA cells in their brain.
Along general lines, this could be possible if a woman bore a male fetus. Yet, not all women who harbored male DNA had been pregnant. Other explanations were that these women had an abortion they did not know about, they had a male twin that vanished, or due to an older brother through maternal circulation.
Still, these criteria did not apply to most of the investigated women. So, what was going on?
The awkward (?) answer seems to be that sex was the reason for these observations. Women could retain the DNA of male lovers given that their sperm come in touch with the female body. Sperm has the opportunity to penetrate the female body and reach their brain. And then it remains there forever.
It is difficult to evaluate what this exactly means for the female organism. But is an indication how intense the sexual connection can be on several levels.
Obviously, sexual contact can be spiritually metaphysical but also physically amazing!
