Mystery of the origin of the female orgasm SOLUTION: Scientists claim that the & # 39; major O & # 39; in humans arose to help prehistoric women ovulate during sex to help conception
- Scientists say there is no biological reason for a female orgasm
- Its evolutionary origin and purpose has been the subject of much speculation
- Researchers believe it is a remnant of a long-lost biological process
- Comes from a process that is found in some mammals where copulation causes ovulation
The purpose of the female orgasm is a scientific enigma.
Experts have found no evolutionary reason for the cascade of pleasure that a woman feels when she reaches her peak.
But researchers now believe that it has evolved for the first time in early people to cause ovulation during sexual intercourse.
This type of sexual ovulation can still be found in some smaller mammals such as camels, ferrets and rabbits.
The orgasm releases an enormous amount of endorphins and chemicals into the body, as well as feelings of excitement and pleasure, and it can be a remnant of this ancient process to help with conception.

WHAT IS THE FEMALE ORGASM?
An orgasm is a feeling of intense sexual pleasure that occurs during sexual activity.
According to the NHS, it can also be & # 39; coming & # 39; or & # 39; climaxing & # 39; are called.
Both men and women have orgasms.
For women, there is no biological benefit to orgasm because it is not believed to play a role in conception.
It is, it is considered a purely enjoyable experience with no other benefit.
Female orgasm is a complex neuroendocrine process that has probably not evolved accidentally.
The authors write in the study: & # 39; The existence of female orgasm is intriguing for two reasons: on the one hand, female orgasm is not necessary for female reproductive success, and on the other hand, this neuroendocrine reflex is too complex to be an evolutionary accident. & # 39;
Many theories were suggested, but none proved.
Dr. Gunter Wagner of Yale University led research into one hypothesis, the ovulatory homologue model (OHM).
They tested the theory of female rabbits and injected them with the chemical fluoxetine, which is known to inhibit orgasms.
After two weeks of treatment, they copulated with a man and the number of ovulations was recorded.
In animals treated with the orgasm inhibitor, the animals ovulated 30 percent less.

This research, published in the journal PNAS, was published in combination with another experiment.
Herein, ovulation was induced by the injection of another chemical, human horoionic gonadotropin after the animals had been treated with the orgasmic chemical.
They found that the levels of Fluoxetine did not reduce ovulation.
Researchers believe that this evidence is that the phenomena of copulation-induced ovulation (CIO) are similar to those of orgasms in humans and probably have an evolutionary origin.
The researchers add: & # 39; Here we provide experimental evidence that increases the chance that female orgasm has evolved from the ovulation caused by the copulation.
& # 39; This finding helps interpret aspects of female sexuality that are otherwise difficult to explain, such as the low percentage of female orgasm during sexual intercourse. & # 39;
