Orgasms Improve Lovers' Communication, Says Researcher

iStock/Thinkstock(STORRS, Conn.) -- Believe it or not, a hormone produced by the body after an orgasm acts as kind of a truth serum that helps to improve a relationship.

University of Connecticut researcher Amanda Denes says that the pro-social hormone oxytocin instills a better sense of trust after an orgasm, which results in better communication between bedmates.

Chances are what people talk about after sex is more intimate than what they might discuss beforehand.

However, alcohol, which also tends to loosen tongues, may not work quite as well as oxytocin.

It’s been found that the pillow talk resulting from sex and alcohol isn’t going to be as revealing and certainly not as intimate as from what people experience from natural orgasms.

What’s more, if people drink and don’t experience an orgasm following sex, there’s an even greater likelihood that their conversations won’t be particularly positive.
