If you ever needed a reason to sit absolutely still and think about nothing for a little while, then this is it. Researchers have found a link in the way the brain reacts during pleasurable sex and meditation. The two sound antithetical - meditation is the practice of getting comfortable, slowing down and concentrating on your breath. However, sex should also begin with these steps. A sex educator who studied under Dr. Deepak Chopra found that the trance state she reached while meditating took her to that same "otherworldly" place that great sex did. So what's the connection? Researchers found that meditation activates the left side of your brain, and sex activates the right side. But the manner in which the activities stimulate the opposite sides of the brain is similar and lead to the same result - a lack of self-awareness.
