You won't believe some of these climax facts
The supremely pleasurable sensations of an orgasm and the ejaculation that (usually) coincides with it is nowadays known to any guy who's past puberty is generally experienced and well-acquainted with. Along with a few bizarre exceptions and oddly common habits that many men share, there's a whole variety of biological processes that are kicked off by a sexual climax. Here are 10 facts you never knew about your all-time favourite activity of sex.
Do You Masturbate Too Much?
Your orgasm gets you super high
The most excited brain region during climax is the ventral tegmental area, which is packed with receptors for neurotransmitters associated with a reward as known from Brain scans on men experiencing orgasms revealed. Danish researchers found that as it turns out, that same brain region lights up like Times Square when heroin users shoot up. The unparalleled pleasure of an orgasm is a helpful trait for humans, why this is happening?
It would be critical for reproduction of the species to favour ejaculation as a most-rewarding behaviour because ejaculation introduces sperm into the female reproductive tract, writes study author Gert Holstege, M.D., PhD.
You'll want to double up to receive maximum ecstasy even though solo sessions are fun.
A hormone called prolactin is released into the body after an orgasm. You might find yourself suddenly bored with that porn clip you were watching as It essentially shuts off your sex drive for up to an hour. Compared to a masturbation-induced orgasm, men and women release 400 per cent more prolactin after intercourse, which is why post-sex spooning still feels fantastic, as Scottish researchers found. They found that 28 per cent of guys had faked an orgasm with their partner when University of Kansas researchers surveyed college students. Almost half of them said their main reason for faking was because they wanted to go to sleep and about one-third of those men said they'd been too drunk to orgasm.
They were likely more worried about hurting their partner's feelings than making the lovemaking session count as it's important to point out that most of the guys who faked had been in a committed relationship at the time.
You'd think it would be difficult to dupe your partner since the male orgasm usually coincides with ejaculation—but not always, as you'll soon find out. But maybe not: some men mentioned hiding or discarding their condom in addition to moaning louder and speeding up their thrusts, says study author Charlene Muehlenhard, PhD.
You can do it again and again if you're lucky
For most guys, the typical refractory period is anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, the time between your last orgasm and when you'll be able to get it up again.
The mutant power of being able to continue to have sex within about 3 minutes after his climax in one recent case study described a 25-year-old German man who was blessed with such a capability.
It gives zero extra prolactin post-orgasm, which they surmised allowed him to achieve his multi-orgasmic feat by taking blood samples right after the man masturbated to some porn. The researchers found that his body produced essentially. The muscle contractions and the ejaculation—without any pleasure, the state is known as "Sexual anhedonia," it is a medical term when genital stimulation produces most of the physical signs of an orgasm.
It's often caused by a class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) that include Paxil, Zoloft, and Prozac. According to a study from the University of Pittsburgh, it can even continue after the patient stops taking those meds. It is less than a teaspoon—unless you're overweight, the average amount of ejaculate released during orgasm is 3.4 millilitres (mL).
Men with a body mass index greater than 30 were 69 per cent more likely to only produce 2 mL or less of semen during an ejaculation, according to a Scottish study.
A fluid that helps lubricate intercourse, most men can release a pre-ejaculate. To allow the semen to travel through unhindered, it clears out your urethra. The researchers weren't sure whether all that during foreplay and sex, 41 per cent of guys produced pre-ejaculate that contained sperm—up to 40 million of the little swimmers, in fact as per an analysis of this fluid that was published in the journal Human Fertility found that. It only takes one to make a baby, so keep those odds in mind if you're not yet looking to become a dad.
The same feel-good neurotransmitters that are Associated with a runner's high, Endorphins. While you're having a migraine, it helps relieve the nauseating pain as researchers in Germany have been investigating whether doing the deed powerful pain blockers. In a study published last year, the scientists reported that one-third of patients had powered through sex despite an unpleasant headache, and of those, 60 per cent said they felt better post-coitus. Since they've honed their bodies to release more endorphins Including people who compete in marathons and triathlons, they have a better chance of curing their migraines with orgasms. The researchers even believe that endurance athletes, Your gunk is chock full of vitamins and minerals, an orgasm floods your brain with Endorphins.
The researchers were developing an artificial semen substitute, Semen is actually only 1 to 5 per cent sperm according to a Duke University study.
A little less than 2/10ths of a gram of protein, and smaller amounts of zinc, potassium, calcium, and chlorine all these provide the sperm with energy as they swim. Like many of your bodily fluids, most of the volume is water. In a typical 3.4-mL load, you'll let out around 10 milligrams (mg) of sodium, 9 mg of fructose—which your semen moves faster than any man can run.
The speed is almost exactly Usain Bolt's world-record maximum running pace of 27.79 mph. Your semen won't cross 100 meters. Your ejaculation average speed is 28 miles per hour. It takes 5 minutes to reach the woman's cervix after the sperm leave your body, they slow down considerably.
