A curious new study at Purdue University (Indiana, USA) has discovered just how powerful human brain could be if people stopped thinking about sex.
Researchers examined 42 Indiana high schools, all of which were similar in community size, enrollment and racial demographics. Half of the schools offered an abstinence education program, which encouraged kids to wait until adulthood before making love, and those schools scored higher in the controlled math exam. For each year the school had employed the abstinence program, their students’ grades rose by 1.5%.
The professors concluded that encouraging rational thinking about sex led to improved marks and fewer teen pregnancies.
Does that seem effective to you?
