The Truth About Orgasms

Just when we thought we knew what was to know about orgasms, we find out some interesting facts about orgasms.

Besides it being a totally out-of-your-mind experience (well, we hope that it is for you because if not, something is wrong!), here are some fun facts about the Big O. Did you know for example that having an orgasm can relieve pain? This is because when you orgasm, a hormone called oxytocin is released in the brain. Oxytocin facilitates bonding, relaxation, and other positive emotional states. Orgasms also help relieve stress for the same reason.

Well, it doesn’t so it should not stop you from using condoms and practicing safe sex. Dr. Herbenick also said that orgasms get better with age. Now, that’s something positive about getting older!
