Health benefits of the female orgasm

by Scott Bowden

Orgasm is the crowning of a successful and highly pleasurable session of sex. It puts a smile on the lips of satisfied women and makes men walk with a swagger. It's the biggest little thing in the world and the crucial detail and the end of a delightful exertion. Life without orgasms is simply not possible.

But orgasm is not limited in scope to making one (or two) people feel good for five or ten minutes before falling asleep. Science has shown that frequent sex and orgasms are very important to the general well-being and health of every person. The more frequent the orgasm, the better off that person is going to be on both the physical and psychological planes.

Everyday life is bound to result in some nervous tensions for most people as the troubles of jobs and relationships take their toll on the mental balance. Sex and orgasms are a chance for these tensions to join the psychological and physical build-up and release. Thus, the mind uses orgasm to flush the tensions out of the system and replace them with the delicious relaxation of that comes with pleasure.

The best thing to do after disentangling from the tender embrace is, of course, to slide into sleep. The combined exertion of sex and relaxation brought by orgasm is the perfect replacement for any sleeping pill. Instead of reaching out for the bottle of pills, you would be better off reaching out for the man lying in bed next to you or for your favorite sex toy. It's a perfectly natural solution that we heartily recommend.

Don't let headaches get in the way. What men don't realize is that headaches are many times a woman's way of saying "You have to try harder". The pleasure brought by orgasm is the result of a discharge of endorphins into the brain. No headache can survive the attack of pleasure flooding the brain and the calming effect it has.

Aside from releasing endorphins into the brain sexual stimulation also activates the production of phenethylamine, an amphetamine secreted by the body which is thought to play a role in the regulation of appetite. Of course, sex is not meant to replace dieting, but it seems to go some way toward helping you rein in those food cravings and it does burn some calories. In fact, sex burns a bit more calories per minute than tennis.

The number of scientific studies showing that frequent orgasms are good for one's health is testimony to the important role played by a successful sex life in the physical and mental health of all men and women. Aside from the fact that increased heart rate and heavy breathing keep the circulatory system in shape and make oxygen circulate through the body, sex has other benefits.

A study published in Psychosomatic Medicine in 1976 showed that failure to reach orgasm has a negative impact on the cardiovascular health of women. Doctor Winnifred Cutler, a specialist in endocrinology, found that women who have sex at least once a week are more likely to have normal menstrual cycles and higher levels of estrogen in their blood. Healthy levels of estrogen help keep the cardiovascular system in shape, fight cholesterol and keep the skin supple.

So Where Do You Start

Sex therapists will tell you that most of the people they advise start off with a remarkable level of ignorance about matters sexual. In some groups, even today in the 21st Century, sex is regarded as being for the purpose of procreation only. But we know that the human body and mind are structured to make sex one of the greatest pleasures life can offer.

Today we understand that good sex forges and strengthens the bond between woman and partner that is at the heart of the family. More than that, sexual orgasm is vitally important for the physical and mental health of both women and men.

Sexual problems can form a vicious circle. If the sex isn’t good the relationship suffers and the sex gets worse. Modern work-centered life styles get in the way too. One partner blames the other and the problem gets worse, etc. etc.

The word ‘partnership’ is critical here. Sure you can make love to yourself but we are concerned about sex between two people who contribute equally so this book is written for men as well as women.

I guess you wouldn’t be reading this book if you didn’t feel there was some improvement to make. Maybe you feel sexually inadequate. Well there’s no sin in that. The whole commercial world conspires to make us all feel inadequate; the advertisements for beauty products that use teen models that don’t need them; products that ‘reduce the appearance of wrinkles’ demonstrated on women who don’t have any; the diet products advertised by women who appear anorexic; and so on.

Just be who you are, live your own life and fulfill your own potential – never ever give up – particularly on your sex life. Talk about your sex with your partner and if you ever feel there’s something wrong – something physical that’s stopping you achieving orgasm – go see your medical advisor.

Remember, communication is critical. You have to be able to discuss these issues freely and openly with your partner.

The G-Spot

The Gräfenberg spot, or G-spot, is a small area in the genital area of women behind the pubic bone and surrounding the urethra. It is named after a German gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg. It is the same as, or part of, the urethral sponge, the site of Skene's glands. While once believed to be nothing more than a dense collection of nerve endings more recent scientific evidence has shown that the G-spot is the "female prostate." It is located on the top side of the vagina, about half way between the pubic bone and cervix, when a female is lying down on her back. When this spot is stroked, there is a sensation or urge to urinate, but if the stroking is continued during sexual arousal it can be sexually pleasurable for females (Shibley Hyde, J. and DeLamater, J.D., Understanding Human Sexuality, Eighth Edition (2003)). It is reported to consist of a system of glands (Skene's glands) and ducts that surround the urethra (Heath, 1984). Some authors write that you must press "deeply" into the tissue with two fingers to reach it with any effectiveness. The significance of the G-spot is that some women report that it is a highly sensitive area that under the right conditions can be very pleasurable if stimulated. For some women, it can be a primary source of stimulation leading to orgasm during intercourse while having sex in positions that use the penis to stimulate the frontal wall of the vagina. Other women report no particular stimulation, and some say that it feels as if they need to urinate.

Stimulation of the G-spot (through the front wall of the vagina) promotes a more vigorous and satisfying orgasm, and is possibly the cause of female ejaculation from the Skene's glands, contained in the urethral sponge. Such stimulation requires a somewhat opposite thrust to that required to obtain maximal clitoral stimulation via the penis, and is often referred to in the vernacular as "riding high".

The G-spot may not be just one discrete spot. Natalie Angier contends that it is merely the deep nerves of the clitoris as they pass through the tissue to connect with the spinal column. The clitoris has deep roots and may in fact change in size and slightly change in location as hormone levels fluctuate throughout a woman's life.

The shape of the penis determines which sexual positions best reach the G-spot. For instance, in missionary position intercourse, a penis that curves upward has a natural ability to exert more pressure on the front wall of the vagina. A man whose penis is uncurved or curves downward may find the doggy style position more suitable for stimulating the G-spot as the curve works against the front wall.

Stimulation of the G-spot through the use of a finger or tongue is possible through the combined pressure of pushing down on the clitoris while arcing the tongue or finger upwards in a beckoning motion. The finger or tongue must be approximately 1-3 inches (2.54-7.62 cm) inside the vagina for this to work. However, different individuals require different forms of stimulation.

The term 'G-spot' is also used by analogy as a slang term for the prostate gland in men, which may be stimulated through anal play or by pressing on the perineum (skin directly beneath the scrotum).
