5 Facts About The Female Orgasm

5 things you didn’t know about the female orgasm…

The female orgasm is not just a phenomena that baffles many men, it has long stirred great confusion amongst the medical community.

Female ejaculation, the g-spot, why some women can and some women can’t, has puzzled scientists for years, but slowly, as more intensive field research is conducted, we are now beginning to understand the mystery behind the female orgasm.

5 Facts About The Female Orgasm

The G-Spot

The G-spot is a small region of the vagina, that when stimulated, produces extremely intense orgasms. Until recently, there had been no real evidence the G spot existed, but in 2008, Italian researchers found anatomical differences between women who could have G-spot orgasms and women who couldn’t.

The team found that women with a thicker urethrovaginal space – the area of tissue between the vagina and urethra thought – were able to achieve G spot orgasms. It is this thicker urethrovaginal skin, that is thought to be the G spot.

The team have since begun teaching women with G spots how to use them.

Brain Stops During Orgasm

Researchers have found that many areas of a woman’s brain shut down during orgasm, including those involved in emotion. Gert Holstege of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands said:

“At the moment of orgasm, women do not have any emotional feelings,”

His team found that as the women were stimulated, activity rose in one sensory part of the brain, called the primary somatosensory cortex, but fell in the amygdala and hippocampus, areas involved in alertness and anxiety.

During orgasm, activity fell in many more areas of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex.

The finding confirm that women are more likely to enjoy sex when relaxed and free from worries. “Fear and anxiety levels have to go down for orgasm. Everyone knows this but we can see it happening in the brain,” he explains.

Such tests in men have been unsuccessful, due to the short duration of a male orgasm, brain scans are much harder to detect.

Some Women Can’t Have Orgasms

According to a 1999 survey, around 43 per cent of women in the US experience problems with their sex lives.

Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is so common that some critics are questioning the disorder.

If nearly half the female population has a problem, does that mean it is our society that is dysfunctional? Or is it a serious condition that needs addressing?

Another problem is low success rate in developing drugs to treat FSD. Viagra has shown mixed in results in women, but many other possibilities are now being explored.

Genes Affect Orgasms

According to the first genetic study of the female orgasm, up to 45 per cent of the variation in women’s ability to have them could be down to genes.

Scientists still believe that external factors such as upbringing are also responsible. Tim Spector of the twin research unit at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, UK, who carried out the study said:

” It is not purely cultural, or due to peer pressure, or to differences in upbringing or religion..
“There are wide differences between women and a lot of these differences are due to genes.”

Technology Can Help

For those women who can not achieve orgasm through penetrative sex or clitoral stimulation, there is an extreme solution called the ‘Orgasmatron’.

The Orgasmatron, developed by Stuart Meloy, a surgeon at Piedmont Anesthesia and Pain Consultants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is a device which is implanted into the spinal cord. When the orgasmatron is switched on via remote control, it uses electrical pulses to modify the nerve signals to the brain This stimulates the users and effectively induces an orgasm.

Although scientist have uncovered some of the mysteries of the female orgasm, it is still is unclear why women should have orgasms at all. It is also particularly confusing that so many women should be unable to have orgasms during penetrative sex, but able to have them by masturbation.

According to researcher Elisabeth Lloyd, that implies that female orgasms are an evolutionary accident. Like male nipples, they persist simply because there is no good reason to get rid of them.
