An orgasm is a sexual climax (or high point). Orgasm happens because of continued sexual touching. During an orgasm, there is a strong feeling of excitement and pleasure. Sexual touching may be sexual intercourse, rubbing or squeezing by hand (called masturbation), or other actions that make the sex organs feel good. During an orgasm, a person’s body sometimes spasms (shakes or trembles) and the person’s brain activity changes quickly. Orgasms may happen when people are asleep. When men orgasm while sleeping, it is often called a “wet dream”. Other mammals may have orgasms when they have sex.
The penis usually becomes erect (hard) before an orgasm, and flaccid (soft) again after. When a man has an orgasm, he feels a very strong and enjoyable feeling in his penis and groin, and sometimes in all of his body. In a man, an orgasm usually happens at the same time as an ejaculation, which is a release of semen through the penis, that can’t be stopped. Young boys can orgasm, but there may be no semen because semen release usually occurs only after puberty has started. After an orgasm, men usually have a deep sense of relaxation, usually felt in the groin and the thighs. Usually the stronger the orgasm, the deeper the relaxation and the longer the relaxation will last.
A woman’s orgasm begins in her clitoris, which is the counterpart of the man’s penis. It is preceded by an erection of the clitoris and a moistening of the opening of the vagina. When a woman goes through a full orgasm, her uterus, vagina, anus and pelvic muscles undergo a series of rhythmic contractions. Most women find these contractions very pleasurable. Rubbing or applying other consistent pressure against the clitoris is usually needed to help the woman have an orgasm.
Orgasm plays an important role in human reproduction. During sexual intercourse, a man places his penis inside a woman’s vagina and moves it backwards and forwards. The woman may also move her hips back and forth, or in a circular motion. The friction caused by this movement, together with the warmth and pressure of the vagina, causes the man to have pleasurable feelings in his penis, which grow stronger and stronger until the man has an orgasm and ejaculates, at which time semen then shoots out from the end of his penis into the woman’s vagina. The semen can make the woman pregnant.
The woman may also have an orgasm during intercourse as well. Scientists are not sure why women have orgasms. Some believe that the orgasm helps the sperm in the man’s semen to swim up the vagina into the cervix, so that it is more likely that a sperm cell will fuse with an egg cell. Others think that the woman’s orgasm is designed to help make the man reach orgasm. During her orgasm, a woman may moan, cry, or scream, which usually excites her man, and her vagina may grip the penis more tightly, which also makes sex more exciting for him. These reactions may cause the man to ejaculate more quickly or to produce more semen; when a woman reaches orgasm during intercourse, it often makes her man have an orgasm at that point as well. Orgasm may also encourage a woman to have sex more often as it feels good, increasing the chances of pregnancy.
A study indicates that the risk of breast cancer for women is lower for those who frequently have orgasms (more than fourteen orgasms a month), in particular after 50 years.
According to another study on 918 men from 45 to 59 years old, and followed for 10 years, the risk of mortality is lower of 50 % for those who have frequently orgasms (more than twice a week).
NB : all the orgasms have not the same intensity.
For the anecdote: It happened to me, several times, after powerful orgasms, to laugh myself sick. I do not know why. A story of hormones, certainly.
I do not think you can establish a gradation of power between the different types of orgasms (fingers, tongue, penis) … It depends on a lot of other factors. It’s not as easy as it looks!
The main idea : making love is an art, it’s not just emptying your balls.
It is well known that having orgasms regularly improves life expectancy !
May the God of Cyprine be with us !
