Little-known ‘happy button’ in ear revealed: Urgent doctor’s warning as thousands attempt ‘eargasms’
- Dr. Karan Reveals How To Have An Orgasm In The Ear
- Not everyone can have one
A doctor has revealed exactly why some people feel pleasure when they clean their ears, likening the sensation to that of an orgasm.
NHS GP Karan explained that sticking things in the ears can stimulate the vagus nerve, causing an ‘ear erection’ which can lead to ‘ear gasmus’.
The doctor, who reveals strange medical facts online, explained that stimulating the vagus nerve inside the ear causes the surrounding tissue to ‘swell’ just like in the genital region.
But not everyone experiences pleasure.
“The happy button in the ear hole is a glitch,” he explained.
Dr. Karan explained that sticking things in your ears can stimulate the vagus nerve, causing an ‘ear boner’ which can lead to ‘ear gasmus’, but that doesn’t mean you should.
Other people have an annoying response when the button is pressed.
“Some people who put things in their ears cause an automatic cough.”
He brought up the topic of ear orgasms after a video of a woman stimulating the sensitive spot went viral.
In the video, the woman appeared to orgasm after pricking the hidden spot with a cotton swab.
‘If we’re not supposed to put things in our ears, why did evolution put a happy button there?’ she asked.
Dr. Karan explained that the vagus nerve is responsible for carrying information about touch and sensation to the brain.
“For those with cough failure, if you stick something into your ear tubes, your brain thinks it’s something in your throat and then causes a cough to remove the threat,” he said.
A lucky few have ear orgasms. Stimulating the vagus nerve leads to a parasynthetic response and a calming effect similar to the other type of ‘seen gasmos’.
He said that’s why ears are considered erogenous zones.
The good news is that you don’t have to ‘stick things’ in your ears to activate the pleasure zone.
“This can be replicated not only by touch, but also by certain types of music, humming, and even a gentle wooing of the ears,” he said.
“If you want to get weird with your ears, go ahead, just leave the Q-tips out of it,” he said.
People were quick to comment on the doctor’s explanation.
“It hits differently knowing there’s erectile tissue in my ear and I moan at the same time,” one woman said.
I have done this in public. So, technically, I orgasmed in public without knowing it,” she added.
Others made jokes, with one woman saying, “I gag and almost throw up if I go too deep.”
What is the vagus nerve?
The vagus nerve, also known as the vagal nerves, are the main nerves of your parasympathetic nervous system.
This system controls specific bodily functions, such as digestion, heart rate, and the immune system.
These functions are involuntary, which means that you cannot consciously control them.

The vagus nerve sends signals to the brain, where our brain interprets the data and creates emotions or alters the state of mental arousal.
For example, if the respiratory rate, heart rate and muscle tone are high, the brain will interpret this as a state that requires a high level of psychological activation.
“Cotton swabs are cheaper than a vibrator and are disposable,” one woman laughed.
Some were surprised because ‘not everyone’ thinks Q-tipping ‘feels amazing’.
Some people seemed to suffer from both “glitches”.
‘Aid. One ear feels amazing, the other makes me cough. I think I’m broken,” said one woman.
“I thought I was the only person in the world with both,” another agreed.
Three women said that the left ear makes them cough while the right ear feels great.
