Female orgasm brain

By Kayt Sukel. Our intrepid reporter performs an intimate act in an fMRI scanner to explore the pathways of pleasure and pain. WITH a click and a whirr, I am pulled into the scanner. My head is strapped down and I have been draped with a blanket so that I may touch my nether regions — my clitoris in particular — with a certain degree of modesty. I am here neither for a medical procedure nor an adult movie. Rather, I am about to stimulate myself to orgasm while an fMRI scanner tracks the blood flow in my brain.

What Goes On In A Woman's Brain When She Has An Orgasm. It's Complicated.

An orgasm is described as a feeling of intense pleasure that happens during sexual activity. While some people experience orgasms differently than others, there are some key changes that occur in the mind and body. By studying the brain activity of people experiencing orgasms, researchers have been able to pinpoint some of these key changes that occur. Using fMRI machines functional magnetic resonance imaging or PET scans positron emission tomography , they were able to measure blood flow and neuron activity inside the brain during climax. The hypothalamus, which plays a key role in releasing hormones like dopamine and oxytocin, is one of the regions of the brain that lights up during orgasm. Image by SciePro on Shutterstock. This is the part of the brain that is responsible for reason, decision making, and value judgments.

This is what your brain looks like during an orgasm

Although the literature on imaging of regional brain activity during sexual arousal in women and men is extensive and largely consistent, that on orgasm is relatively limited and variable, owing in part to the methodologic challenges posed by variability in latency to orgasm in participants and head movement. To compare brain activity at orgasm self- and partner-induced with that at the onset of genital stimulation, immediately before the onset of orgasm, and immediately after the cessation of orgasm and to upgrade the methodology for obtaining and analyzing functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI findings. The first second epoch of orgasm was contrasted with the second epochs at the beginning of stimulation and immediately before and after orgasm.

Is brain activity during an orgasm different from the period of intense sexual arousal that immediately precedes orgasm? Does it make a difference whether the woman masturbates or is stimulated by a partner? The data that mapped brain activity to levels of sexual arousal culminating in orgasm were gathered in an environment that few would consider conducive to erotic activity. Functional magnetic imagining scanners are always noisy and usually cold.
