Orgasms - A Real ‘Turn Off’ for Women

Having an orgasm is such a wonderful feeling, or that’s what women say. No one’s really been able to explain the experience very well, but a bunch of scientists recently studied the phenomenon of orgasms in detail and have figured out one important fact. That women do get ‘turned off’ by sex and orgasms!

Orgasms - A Real 'Turn Off' for WomenSurprisingly, at the moment of orgasm, women do not have any feelings! At the study that was conducted by a few scientists, using a brain scan, many areas of the brain get switched off during an orgasm. And the area that gets switched off include the regions of the brain where we feel pain or emotion! There is literally no emotional feeling for women when they reach for the skies, and it doesn’t matter who’s around. Everything goes into a haze, and the urge to orgasm overrides everything else. It’s no wonder many couples who make out in public don’t really mind being seen if they’re already in the middle of the act, adds the study.

Another aspect that was verified is the universally acknowledged myth, that women cannot enjoy sex unless they are relaxed and free from worries and distractions. Fear and anxiety levels drive down the chances to orgasm while having an intimate moment for women. It’s no wonder, women worry so much about their appearance and feel quite unsexy at times. And unknown to them, it’s their feeling of ‘unsexyness’ that results in bad sex.

Back to Evolution

It all comes back to this, all the time. Again, the reason why women shut down their brain and lose their emotions completely when they have sex is due to human evolution. Evolution has altered us in such a way that women ‘turn off’ their brain while having sex because at such times the chance to produce off spring becomes more important than the survival risk to the individual. This behavior is also seen in several animals, where the urge to mate makes them overlook all fear of predators and other dangers, and focus primarily on mating! The only part of the brain that still functions is the cerebellum, which is said to be associated with movement and coordination of the body.

The Man’s Side

Well, men have never known how to shut out things in their head, and even while having sex, men seem to feel nothing that is felt by women. The brain may be deactivated in a few small regions, but almost all other functions work in order. No wonder men are able to speak easily while having sex, while women find it easier to moan rather than speak, which is pretty much because the part of the brain that coordinates speech too, is shut off while orgasming!
