Happy National Orgasm Day! And for some of you, Happy Faking It Day! I can only hope that those of you who plan on commemorating today’s holiday will find success in your sexual endeavors, but I’m sure more than a few of you will end up flipping through “King of Queens” reruns and letting out an occasional moan while your oblivious but hopefully enthusiastic and determined significant other goes to town under the covers. It’s not always easy achieving the “Big O,” but it’s more tangible than catching a rainbow unicorn, I promise you. The struggle is real, and a lot goes through your head when you’re trying to hit those high notes. Here’s what you can expect to think step-by-step (in GIFs). Keep reading »
When I say someone invented an orgasm machine, I’m not talking about the world’s most effective vibrator. I’m talking about a surgical implant designed to give a woman an orgasm at the push of a button. Creator, surgeon Stuart Meloy, says he came up with the idea for the cigarette-sized device by accident. “I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically. I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that.’” No, he did not start teaching husbands how to manipulate their wives spines to climax – he made a machine that would do it for them.

It seems like there’s always some new kind of insane, mind-blowing orgasm women are supposedly experiencing. From g-spot orgasms, to third-level orgasms, to cul-de-sac orgasms, you can’t help but feel that you’re not measuring up with your respectable pleasure quiver … or lack there of. Let’s not get so infatuated with the climaxes that Cosmo thinks we should be having that we’re ashamed of the orgasms we actually are having, or only having once in a blue, vibrating moon. These types of orgasms seem far more attainable and realistic to us: Keep reading »
There are always new things to learn, even after you have multiple degrees under your belt. It’s back-to-school-time and if you’re looking to build your skills and gain deeper knowledge on the topic of orgasms, that curriculum is now available. According to a promotional email I got, OrgasmicBliss.com is offering a new six-week online video course teaching women how to go from a C to an A+ in the art of orgasming. It’s taught by Tantra practitioner Layla Martin, who hopes to “awaken the full sexual power of as many women as possible.” The Orgasm 101 course is described as follows:
This course gives woman simple, safe and fun exercises and techniques that work as much on women’s minds, emotions and sense of worth as their physical body through exercises on sounding, breathing movement and awareness. And the best part is that it’s all done in the privacy of your own home. The website also allows women to try the first week’s exercises completely free, so they can see how awesome and effective it is before committing to the full $180 six-week course.
Sounds a lot more stimulating than taking a class about, say, HTML. But let’s hope for the students’ sake that there’s no one else home when class is in session.
When it comes to keeping your brain lean and mean well into old age, you’re better off using your vibrator than spending time solving crossword or Sudoku puzzles, claims neuroscientist Professor Barry Komisaruk of Rutgers University. In a new study, Komisaruk, who has been researching female arousal since the ’60s, measured blood flow to women’s brains at the height of orgasm. He discovered a tremendous increase in blood flow to many regions of the brain, resulting in a boost in nutrients and oxygenation. “Mental exercises increase brain activity but only in relatively localized regions. Orgasm activates the whole [thing],” Komisaruk explained. It’s not like you’re going to give up your Sunday crossword puzzle or your ongoing game of virtual Scrabble, just make sure you’re supplementing your brain workouts it with some orgasms. Done and done. [Daily Mail UK] [Photo from Shutterstock]
