#Word by Fellow ‘Orgasms-ers’
Researchers Vance and Wagner in 1976 requested a group of college students to describe the feelings related to an orgasm camouflaging the gender of the describer to generalize the viewpoint regardless of the sex.
The following are written by the college students about how orgasms can bring about beneficial and elated feelings.
- “A sudden relief of lightheadedness followed by an intense feeling of relief and elation. A rush. Intense muscle spasms of the whole body. Sense of euphoria followed by deep peace and relaxation”.
- “Basically it’s an enormous buildup of tension, anxiety, strain, followed by a period of total oblivion to sensation then a tremendous expulsion of the buildup with a feeling of wonderfulness and relief”.
As per Patton, in her book, Holy Sexuality: Beginning with Questions,” Orgasm is a deep body and mind interchange”. Following are benefits outlined by Patton:
- “Boosts testosterone and estrogen in both men and women. Some physicians suggest that the testosterone keeps hearts healthy and good cholesterol high. The estrogen released during orgasm helps promote vaginal elasticity”.
- “Increases blood flow. Accelerated heart rate and deep breathing increases the blood flow to all the body’s cell, organs and muscles. This helps reduce stress and promotes relaxation, and it helps reduce women’s abdominal cramping during periods”.
- “Reduces pain. ‘In a study published in the Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine’, 48 volunteers who inhaled oxytocin vapor and then had their fingers prickled lowered their pain threshold by more than half”.
- “Increases pelvic floor muscle control for women. Orgasms help strengthen this often undervalued part of women’s body. Exercising the pelvic muscles with regular Kegel exercise will help to minimize the risk of incontinence later in life”.
- “Reduces risk of prostate cancer. In men, frequent ejaculations have been proven to lower the risk of prostate cancer later in life”.
According to Fulbright’s book, Pleasuring: The Secrets of Sexual Satisfaction,” As proclaimed in the Fourteenth World Congress of Sexology’s adopted Declaration of Sexual Rights, ‘Sexual pleasure is a source of physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing.’ Research continually confirms that sex enhances human beings in numerous ways.

Men who orgasm at least twice a week have a 50 percent lower chance of mortality than those who climax only once per month. Intercourse itself has also been a significant predictor of longevity in men.”
Anorgasmia the Opposite of an Orgasm?
Anorgasmia described by Barry R. Komisaruk, Beverly Whipple in the book The Orgasm Answer Guide, the authors state,”According to the researcher Raymond Rosen, anorgasmia is a common problem that affect an estimated 24 to 37 percent women”. As per Jonathan Cape’s work on Desmond’s Morris’s book, it has been reported, “It has been claimed that two out of every three women fail to reach regular orgasms from simple penetrative sex. As mentioned above, most of them find that only digital or oral stimulation of the clitoris can be guaranteed to bring them to climax. This must mean that, for them, the two ‘hot spots’ inside the vagina are not living up to their name. The reason for this, it seems, is monotony in sexual positioning. A group of 27 couples were asked to vary their sexual positions experimentally, employing postures that would allow greater stimulation of the two vaginal ‘hot spots’, and it was found that three-quarters of the females involved were then able to achieve regular vaginal orgasms.”
