Your ability to orgasm comes from your DNA and more surprising facts about the Big O

Whether it’s Meg Ryan moaning hysterically at the local deli or the Sex Education teens raving about it, orgasms have always been a hot topic.

And now the Big O is once again the talk of the town, thanks in part to Emma Thompson’s new film Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, which was released last week and explores the pleasure gap.

Like Moby Dick’s white whale, the elusive female orgasm has been discussed extensively over the years, but rarely experienced.

The term “pleasure gap” refers to the shortfall in the number of orgasms women experience compared to their male partners, and, as sex expert Rowan Pelling reported earlier this week, women in their 50s and 60s are hiring somatic therapists for one-on-one. -a treatment. one experiences, or to attend their workshops, to close this gap once and for all.

Meanwhile, a study from the University of Ottawa found that moaning is a poor indicator of female sexual pleasure and should be taken off the official Orgasm Rating Scale altogether.

In this time when the conversation about orgasm is peaking, FEMAIL reveals seven surprising facts you’ve always wanted to know about the big O.

THERE IS AS A BAD ORGASM

Sex expert Tracey Cox revealed earlier this year that not all orgasms are renounced.

She said some people inadvertently experience orgasm in non-sexual situations and when they don’t want to — such as while breastfeeding or while exercising (exercise-induced orgasms do occur).

Some sexual assault victims experience an orgasm during the attack: a clear sign that our brains and bodies may be in extreme disconnection.

This is called “arousal nonconcordance” – when your mind and body are out of sync.

Some people find orgasms painful, others feel guilty about having one with someone they shouldn’t have sex with.

If your partner pressures you to orgasm, it’s unlikely to be a pleasant experience; in men, ejaculating too early can lead to feelings of shame.

YOUR POSSIBILITY TO ORGASM WAS PRESENT BY YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER

While you may not want to associate your parents with some sort of climax, they played an important role in your ability to orgasm.

According to a 2005 study on twins, our DNA could be responsible for one-third to 60 percent of your ability to climax.

The study found a significant genetic influence, meaning if your mom doesn’t have trouble having an orgasm, you probably don’t either.

Tim Spector, who co-led the study with the Twin Research Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, said the female orgasm was still a “taboo topic” at the time.

The same study found that only 14 percent of the 700 women who took part in the study reported always reaching orgasm, while 16 percent of them said they never did or weren’t sure.

At the time, the research team suggested comparing the DNA of women who always orgasm with those who never did shed some light on the biological pathway behind the sexual climax.

THE BRAIN CAN MAKE ITSELF AGAIN TO ALLOW ORGASM THROUGH OTHER BODY PARTS

People who have had lower paralysis and cannot feel genital stimulation sometimes find that they can reach orgasm through stimulation of other body parts, such as the skin of the arm or the nipples.

An article from 2005 in The Seattle Times found that several women who had been paralyzed by injury could have had orgasms when touched elsewhere.

It was reported that a Philadelphia woman who had become paralyzed from the waist down at age 30 said she was able to reach a climax. when touched on a spot on the trunk or neck just above the injury area.

Neurologist Barry Komisaruk of Rutgers University, who had studied sex in paralyzed women for ten years discovered a new pathway to sexual pleasure through the vagus nerve, which travels from the brain through the lungs, intestines and other internal organs, bypassing the spinal cord.

The specialist also found that in the years following their injuries, some women were able to reorganize their nervous systems and discover new hypersensitive areas.

Mary Roach, author of Bonk and a science journalist, revealed in a 2009 Ted Talk that orgasm is a reflex of the part of the nervous system concerned with unconscious control, the autonomic nervous system.

She gave the examples of a woman who had an orgasm every time she brushed her teeth, explaining that this suggested that something in this woman’s sensory movement control was triggering the climaxes.

MOST ORGASMS SCIENTIFICALLY DOCUMENTED IN ONE HOUR IS 134

And yes, it was a woman. The best a man could clock was 16.

A close second (but for less pleasant reasons) is a woman in Arizona who suffers from persistent genital arousal disorder.

She says she endures up to six hours of sexual arousal a day and once had more than 180 orgasms in just two hours.

PGAD patients experience intrusive and unwanted spontaneous genital arousal that can last for hours, days, or even longer

ORGASM AND EJACULATION ARE TWO SEPARATE THINGS

Most people think that when men are involved, ejaculation equates to orgasms, but this is incorrect.

Men can have an orgasm without ejaculating – and they can ejaculate without having an orgasm.

Orgasms happen in the brain; Ejaculation is the physical act of expelling semen from the prostate. They usually occur together, but you can have one without the other.

While it is commonly believed that men experience both ejaculation and orgasm simultaneously, they occur close to each other, but not at the exact same time.

It would be possible for a man to have multiple orgasms without ejaculate, but this would take some practice.

Meanwhile, orgasms from anal or prostate stimulation are not accompanied by ejaculation, but feel like a full-body climax.

A PART OF YOUR BRAIN LOCKS OUT DURING ORGASM

There’s an area behind your left eye called the lateral orbitofrontal cortex that stops when you ejaculate.

This area is responsible for the control of reason and behavior – which explains why everything else no longer matters during those precious moments of pleasure.

How do they know?

Researchers asked women to masturbate in an MRI machine to see how the brain functions during orgasm.

They found that 30 areas of the brain were lit during orgasm, but some shut down to allow us to focus on pleasure.

Areas associated with fear and anxiety, memory and spatial awareness are turned off.

LESS LIKELY TO AN ORGASM IF YOU DON’T MASTURBATE

Our first orgasm is almost 100 percent likely to be achieved solo, Tracey Cox said.

Crucially, most women with their “L” plates on feel too self-conscious to let go with a partner. During solo sex, no one is watching and you have complete control over what happens.

Exploring your own body, you are relaxed and eager to learn. You discover that the clitoris feels great when stimulated, experiment with techniques until you find the one that works for you, discover the right pressure and speed.

If you’ve never done this – never tried to orgasm with a vibrator or your fingers or by rubbing against something – you probably don’t know what turns you on and what doesn’t.

Which means you can’t guide your partner on what works best to bring you pleasure.

Almost all women learn to orgasm through masturbation. There are many guides on how to masturbate online (I have several on traceycox.com) and it’s never too late to get started.
