On Human Sexuality:
Why do women have orgasms?
Let's take our minds off serious issues and do something different---women and sex.
In women during sex, the pupils dilate, nostrils flare, heart rate increases, the hormone oxytocin level increases, sweat glands open for cooling, breasts enlarge by 25% and nipples increases in height by half an inch.
There is increased blood flow to the lips, nose and labia.
All of these things happen as the sexual stimuli build up to the almighty orgasm, the cloud 9 or our physical heaven.
Why orgasm in women?
Outside the pleasurable feelings, does it serve any other purpose in the realms of physical, psychological or reproductive realm?
Psychologically it leaves us with good feelings, elevates our mood and have long term health benefits for both the women and men.
Looking at orgasm from the primitive or evolutionary landmark, it has been adduced as one of the ways that women could tell whether a man would be a good lifelong partner, because it could help women distinguish between a caring, patient male and a selfish impatient one that ejaculates and rolls off without a care as to whether she enjoyed it or not. evening party gowns look elegant
In the reproductive cycle, during intercourse the vaginal walls make fluids that let the partner's penis slide with just the right amount of friction. Together with the sights, sounds and smells of sex, the stimulation to the clitoris, labia, and breasts all build up the crescendo of intense physical sensation.
This is about the time when the brain cells tell the vagina and nearby muscles to contract.
Why does this happen you may ask:
It is to bring the partner's penis in deeper and increase the chances of his sperm hitting its target- the egg if the woman is ovulating.
At this point, some women actually ejaculate or squirt.
The uterus dips in like an anteater and sucks up the semen into the uterus to further increase the chance of fertilization.
Another usefulness of the orgasm is that it causes hormones to increase contractions in the vagina and uterus and help move semen into the uterus.
Orgasm aids sperm retension.
Women who have orgasms 1 minute before and 45 minutes after their partner's ejaculation have a higher tendency to retain sperm compared to those who don't have orgasm.
We should not be ignorant of the complexity of orgasms in women.
Women can be stimulated to orgasms through not only the genitals but also through the mouth, nipples and other parts of the body.
