Orgasm, what’s not to love? - That wash of electrical energy that bursts from our genitals to our toes; leaving that achingly pleasurable pulse of satisfaction and relaxation. How could something that feels so good be good for you too? Usually, anything that causes such pleasure (downing a bottle of wine, eating that whole box of chocolates) isn’t considered “good” for us. Luckily, researchers and physicians are finally wising up to the fact that: sex and orgasms are good for your body, mind and soul.
1. Orgasm relieves stress
The relaxation that typically follows orgasm is often one of the few times people actually allow themselves to completely relax and let go of the day’s stresses. In the afterglow of an orgasm it’s usually impossible to focus on distracting thoughts. Oxytocin, the bonding, sleepy hormone, floods your body one minute after orgasm making you awash in calm.
Use a “massager” to bring pleasure and clitoral vibration with a long handle for more comfort and better reach. Try the Hitachi Magic Wand, labeled “the most reliable way to orgasm”.
2. Orgasm helps you sleep better
Following an orgasm people with prostates usually experience a quick drop in blood pressure and fall into sudden relaxation. For those with uteruses the effect is more progressive but just as powerful. Consider orgasm as your own personal tranquilizer. Throw the Ambien out and overcome insomnia. Let the joyful release of endorphins take over and calm your body and mind right into a nap.
Use a blindfold to block out the light while the rest of your senses indulge. The Clitoriffic will stay focused on your clitoris, giving you a head-start in the arousal process, bringing you closer to orgasm.
3. Orgasm boosts your immune system
With orgasm DHEA is released and Dr. Theresa Crenshaw author of The Alchemy of Love and Lust says, “DHEA may be the most powerful chemical in our personal world. It helps balance the immune system, improves cognition, promotes bone growth, and maintains and repairs tissues, keeping your skin healthy and supple. It can mean less frequent colds and flu.” In fact, Wilkes University in Pennsylvania says those who have sex once or twice a week show 30% higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, which is known to boost the immune system.
Rabbit Habit is an all-in-one vibrator designed to vibrate on the clitoris, while small beads gently turn inside the shaft to give the labia and vagina a delicious sensation.
4. Orgasm reduces depression and improves mood
Who wouldn’t be happier with an orgasm a day? Many hormones are positively affected by the act of sex and orgasm, which can lead to a lighter mood. Another theory is proposed by psychologist Gordon Gallup who states that Prostaglandin, a hormone found only in semen (which upon being absorbed in the female genital tract) may have led to 30% more of his study participants with uteruses to report feeling happier than the participants who didn’t have their partners ejaculate semen inside of them. So, semen can apparently make you feel happy inside and out.
Use a hands-free, clitoral vibrator to strap-on for easy comfort and constant contact to the clitoris during intercourse or for when you don’t have the energy. Try the Wireless Micro Butterfly.
5. Orgasm helps people with uteruses get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy
An orgasm is not a prerequiste to getting pregnant, but the vaginal orgasm can help. Orgasm increases uterine contractions, which increases “insuck”, negative pressure drawing sperm into the uterus. Orgasm also increases blood flow to the uterus making it an ideal environment for an egg to implant. Pregnant people were found to be more likely to carry baby to term when they had regular orgasm during pregnancy, either with partner or simply by themselves.
Use a vibrating cock ring during intercourse to increase the likelihood of orgasm with intercourse. Try the Wireless Ring of Passion.
6. Orgasm strengthens the body
Muscle contraction as a form of exercise is generally good for any muscle. The muscle contraction associated with orgasm can also address issues such as erection problems and incontinence. When 178 Belgian men with minor erection problems participated in a four month daily rehabilitation program which primarily focused on Kegel exercises, 74% showed improvement and 43% reported they were cured. For people with vaginas, Kegels strengthen the entire uro-genital tract, aid in easing childbirth and prevents the onset of incontinence.

7. Orgasm Alleviates Pain
Orgasm has been linked with decreased pain with menstrual cramps, migraine and a general increase of pain threshold. Because of natural opiates, sex and specifically orgasm become a powerful analgesic, elevating the pain threshold. Now that’s a prescription everyone can follow.

8. Orgasm reduces your risk of heart disease
It’s simple — by having and orgasm three or more times a week, individuals reduce their risk of heart attack or stroke by half. Heart attack rates were found to be much higher with women who didn’t have orgasms.
Indulge in some visual sensuality to get that hear pumping gradually to get you in the mood. Or an explicit movies. Orgasm comes easier after visual stimulation.
9. Orgasm helps you lose weight
There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat. For every 3500 calories you burn you will lose one pound of fat. Sexual intercourse burns approximately 150 calories per half hour. In comparison, yoga uses 114 calories per half hour, dancing 129, walking - 3mph 153, weight training 153, volleyball 174. The pulse rate, in an aroused person, rises from about 70 beats per minute to 150, the same as that of an athlete putting forth maximum effort.

10. Orgasm decreases risk of cancer
Higher oxytocin and DHEA hormone levels released with orgasm were linked with decreased rates of breast cancer. And people with prostates who had an orgasm (ejaculation) more often were found to have lower levels of prostate cancer.

Finally, orgasms help you to live longer: A British study of 1,000 people found those who had at least two orgasms a week had half the death rate of the rest of the country which admitted to indulging in sex less than once a month. Live long and prosper with lots of orgasms!
An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away. Fuck apples. Cum regularly.

Re-posting because it’s always new to somebody. Truth bombs are full of truth.
i actually didn’t know this until a few months ago.
I didn’t know this at all.
Did you know…?
Before the 17th century, western women gave birth squatting, sitting, or standing up. This changed when King Louis XIV of France decreed that his wives and mistresses would give birth lying down so he could witness the birth of his children. Although this position often makes birth more difficult and painful, it soon became the norm. Before long, the number of obstetric instruments multiplied to address the added difficulty, and the view of birth as an emergency that required medical attention spread quickly.
White men can’t judge.

I was curious as to why she was doing all that standing. Now I know why.
“Consumers may look at the grocery store shelves and think they’ve got a multitude of options, but the truth is, the same huge corporations own all of the brand names, use the same toxic ingredients in the products and care not the slightest about your nutrition or health. Take a look at this diagram for proof that your freedom of choice in the grocery store is an illusion.”
SUMMERHILL SCHOOL!!! ENGLAND!!!!
My teacher told me about this in high school. As humans we have a natural thirst for knowledge. While naturally kids did their own thing for the first few weeks they eventually started going to class. It teaches them to want to go to class. You’re not forced to learn and because of that you want to learn.
They’re joking right???
nope. they are dead ass serious -___- i think the history channel really has a problem with acknowledging the contributions of POC ancient and modern, from innovation to slavery and surviving colonialism. -__- and the crazy thing is if you see their line ups - they’re not very slick about it either.
People OF COLOR have problems acknowledging other PoC contributions. I’ve never once seen any so called “fuck white people” ass person on here ever say “well…what about the Chinese that flocked here and built the rail roads too?”
Muhfukkaz only want unity until THEIR shit gets overshadowed. Then it’s a “We had it worse” situation
Wigs have been snatched.
Pack it in. Nothing left to see here.
TEAR AND TIER ARE PRONOUNCED THE SAME BUT TEAR AND TEAR ARE PRONOUNCED DIFFERENTLY
im glad english is my first language because if i had to learn it as a second language id jump off a bridge
Other languages are just as hard. They have their quirks, too. Especially when trying to translate what we know to be English into their language; ‘proper’ sentence structure is not the same.
I don’t know if you guys received the memo; but poor people aren’t supposed to want nice things.
All rags-to-riches (or rags-to-bitches, if you want to get all Boondocks about it) stories start with people who are poor but industrious. Tales of kids eating cigarette ash sandwiches to survive. Tales of people saving mustard packets so they have food that stretches through the whole year. Bonus points if your parent proudly refuses government help, or if you suffer through and survive a vitamin deficiency. You’re a rock star if you live many years out on the streets and still pull down a 4.0+ GPA. You have done poverty correctly.
However, if you take what little disposable income you have and buy sushi, you are doing wrong. Poor people do not want things like smartphones (you’re poor; who are you calling on a smartphone?), televisions (you’re poor; what do you need entertainment for?), nice cars (why wouldn’t you get a modest car to get around when you’re poor), or delicious food (do you know how much ramen you could have bought for the cost of that scone?). Poor people should not take any windfalls or nest eggs or scraped together pennies and expose themselves to luxuries. After all, isn’t that just a brutal reminder of how poor they are any other time? Why not just face the fact that poor is what you are, poor is what you shall be, and poor means that you cannot have nice things?
The mere definition of what my life is ‘supposed’ to be.
