Roller coasters can be a blast, as can Tilt-A-Whirls, but few amusement park attractions offer the thrills and chills of a reverse bungee jump ride called the Slingshot.
For women anyway. At least, based on viral videos that show women reacting to the sensation of the ride. Watch the video and read more on Huffington Post Weird News…
Researchers at Rutgers University used brain scan technology to find out exactly what’s going on when women orgasm. A whole lot, apparently. Scientists monitored 80 separate regions of the brain to measure the oxygen levels as a woman approaches climax (red is the lowest and yellow/white is the highest). As you can see, when we’re getting off, all the areas of the brain (including our emotional, sensory, and pleasure centers) bloom like crazy neon flowers. “It’s really a symphony of physiological responses,” said the lead researcher. Indeed, it is. [Healthzone]
Let’s get real about something. The female orgasm is a skittish mother f**ker.

I’m willing to bet most of you have Monday mornings that go something like this: alarm goes off at 6:30 AM, you hit snooze 3 times before rolling out of bed at 6:49, you shower, get dressed, walk the dog, and then grab a banana or breakfast bar before heading out to fight traffic on your way to work. But what if you mornings began, say, lying “naked from the waist down,” in a velvet-curtained room, with your eyes closed, “while clothed men huddle over [you], stroking [you] in a ritual known as orgasmic meditation — ‘OMing,’ for short”? That’s exactly how a core group of 38 men and women start each day at a small commune in San Francisco called One Taste. Keep reading »
