Researchers have found that people who receive Botox treatment to soften facial wrinkles are less likely to achieve orgasms

It's news that could make women frown, if they can still.

Researchers have found that people who receive Botox treatment to soften facial wrinkles are less likely to achieve orgasm.

Injections of the toxic substance paralyze the nerves, which hinders the production of the full range of facial expressions.

Psychologists at Cardiff University have found that, as a result, women find it more difficult to communicate to lovers who enjoy sex.

This, the researchers say, affects the performance between the sheets and dulls the woman's sense of physical enjoyment.

Dr. Michael Lewis, who led the research, explained that just as people find it difficult to feel ecstatically happy without smiling, people struggle to achieve orgasm without total control of the muscles of the face.

He said: "Facial expressions associated with orgasm use the same muscles targeted in cosmetic treatments typical of botulinum toxin.

The predicted consequence of receiving treatment is that women may feel an orgasm to a lesser extent and may find it more difficult to reach climax.

"The analysis of our study suggests that this is what is happening."

The study involved 36 women, 24 of whom had been treated with botulinum toxin, measuring their sexual satisfaction index of female sexual function index.

Those who had been injected with a scowl reported a noticeable drop in their satisfaction score.

Writing in the journal Scientific Reports, Dr. Lewis said: "Reducing the mobility of these muscles can interfere with the expression and feedback of emotion during sexual activity.

Current research supports this hypothesis, since participants reported that, after treatment with BTX, there was a decrease in sexual function: in particular, orgasms were more difficult to achieve and less satisfactory. "

He added: "The results suggest that facial expressions do not occur simply to communicate pleasure.

& # 39; They are an integral part of the feeling of pleasure and are important in the process of reaching orgasm. This demonstrates an important role for facial feedback within sexual relationships and is potentially a significant negative impact of BTX treatment. "
