Ever meet someone who just loves to toot his or her own horn? He might self-congratulate repeatedly at work, give you a play-by-play on his brilliant all-star fantasy baseball team, or shamelessly self-promote on Facebook.

A new study by Harvard University reveals that there’s a cause for all this bragging: it feels as good as sex.

Yep, according to the study, the same section of the brain that gets satisfaction from  sex became active when people talked about themselves.

Do you or your man get TMI online or in person? How much is too much?
