Terrified of Flying? To Cure Your Fear, Just Have Sex

Getting some action might be the smartest thing you’ve ever done.

If the haunting spectre of air travel grips you with vice-like anxiety, there might be a very pleasurable antidote to your woes you never considered. 

A new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology published in Scientific Daily dives deep into the role of chemicals in the brain when stressful experiences occur, and have arrived at some intriguing conclusions. Further explained by Tom Bunn, former pilot-turned-therapist, in an interview with Fox News, we now have reason to believe having sex right before a flight could cure you once and for all of your fear of flying.

Boiled down to the shit you care about: oxytocin is a neuro-receptor that makes you feel good. And conveniently for you, it’s released before and after getting it on. But it’s not as simple as, “these chemicals will make you feel good, and therefore you won’t be scared.” Having oxytocin present in your brain before a potentially traumatic or fearful event actually prevents serotonin in the amygdala from doing its nasty little job: solidifying horrifying memories. It basically tricks your brain into not making fearful memories, making it easier and easier for you to experience flying in a positive light.

So go forth and get busy. Just don’t get caught.
