Female Orgasm: Intense Pleasure, and Increasing Conception

“Despite some scientists’ belief that there is no purpose in female orgasm, it actually works to keep a woman lying down after sex, passively retaining sperm, and increasing her probability of conception.  Not to mention that orgasm is intense pleasure, and anything that feels good makes you want to do it again and again…”

About The Orgasm

“It’s a delicate system, but the connection to the brain is about as direct as it gets. Nerves in the tip of the clitoris communicate straight to the sexual pleasure center of the female brain. When those nerves are stimulated, they boost electrochemical activity until it hits a threshold, triggers a burst of impulses, and releases bonding, feel-good neurochemicals such as dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphines. Ah, climax!”
