Why can a female orgasm feel so overwhelming that it sometimes overwhelms us? Why can many women experience orgasm repeatedly, while others never even experience orgasm at all? Does the G-spot really exist? A number of these questions are just a few of the many mysteries of how the human body works.
Reported by the BBC, Barry Komisaruk, a chief researcher from Rutgers University New Jersey, investigated whether differences in brain work could explain why men and women experience sex so differently.
What happens during a female orgasm
Apparently, regardless of the diversity of their sexual experiences, both men and women showed more or less the same brain activity during orgasm. What Komisaruk got from the study was that the MRI scan results from the two brains appeared to light up brightly during orgasm.
Female orgasm occurs as a result of blood flowing to your vagina and clitoris. At this time, your vaginal wall begins to produce lubricants which over time will flow out. With the stimulation getting stronger, the blood will continue to flow to the pelvis, your breathing will increase, your heart rate will increase, your nipples will become hard, and the lower part of your vagina will narrow to hold the penis while the upper part enlarges to give entry to the penis >
When tension is peaked, the nerves and genital muscles, pelvis, buttocks, and thighs are tightened - until your body unconsciously gives up all this sustained stimulation, aka orgasm.
However, women can orgasm multiple times, men don't
There are several nerves that play an important role during a female orgasm. One of them is the nucleus accumbens, a region of the brain that deals with pleasure and appreciation through the release of a transmitter, called endorphins.
Continues, this may be one of the factors why orgasm can be tiring. When all brain nerves are stimulated together, this can obscure the difference between each nerve function. When climax, the area behind the eye (lateral orbitofrontal cortex), is deactivated. This area is responsible for behavioral control and reasons. This is probably why you can't focus on anything else.
Female orgasm occurs when the uterus, vagina, and anus tighten together with a distance of only 0.8 seconds. Small orgasms may consist of 3-5 contractions; while a great climax is recorded up to 10-15 contractions.
The Komisaruk study found that a number of areas of a man's brain became unresponsive to re-receiving sensory stimulation in his genitals immediately after recovering from orgasm. So, after a single orgasm, men need a long time to experience the next orgasm. The difference is, a woman's brain can continue to burn, so women can experience orgasm repeatedly at one time.
Only 25% of women can orgasm during sex
However, a number of studies report that only about 25 percent of women can reach climax during sex with their partners. Others, whether they reach climax but don't realize it, or never experience orgasm at all.
In contrast, more than 90 percent of men always reach orgasm every time they have sex - as long as they can get an erection, a few minutes of sexual stimulation will lead to ejaculation.
The research of Rachel Pauls, a urogynecologist in Ohio, investigated the size and location of the clitoris and whether it can affect their ease of reaching orgasm during penetrative sex. The findings of the clitoral MRI scan from 30 female participants stated that the smaller the size and the farther the distance of the clitoris from the vagina, the more difficult it would be for women to reach orgasm.
Women's orgasmic difficulties don't only come from internal factors. When climax, your body will usually go back down to a calm and relaxed state, but not always. Like men, women can experience pelvis that feels heavy and painful if they don't reach orgasm.
Orgasm in women can be achieved in a variety of ways - clitoral, vaginal, a combination of both, or from stimulating soft spots in other areas of the body - but one orgasm is not enough to relieve the sexual tension they feel. Women generally do not get enough clitoral stimulation to continue. This is the reason why foreplay plays an important role in your sex life and partner. For you to achieve the desired orgasm, relaxation is one way to release sexual tension - which can be overcome by foreplay.
Why do many women fake their orgasms?
For most women, it takes an average of 20 minutes to reach one orgasm and last for only about 20 seconds. In men, the peak of orgasm can be felt after 2-10 minutes after sex. In most cases, a woman will reach orgasm and their sex partner is aware of the signs, then either she orgasms first or changes what she is doing. As a result, many of them fake orgasms to satisfy their sex partners.
