Here's an incentive to exercise: Women report experiencing orgasms in the gym
(Study shows orgasm 'is not necessarily a sexual event')Although the phenomenon was first reported in 1953, 'little is known about exercise-induced orgasms,' according to scientists from Indiana University. To fill in the gap researcher Debby Herbenick and her team surveyed hundreds of women aged from 18 to 63 who said they had experienced exercise-induced orgasm or sexual pleasure. Herbenick said that the mechanisms behind exercise-induced orgasm and exercise-induced sexual pleasure remain unclear and, in future research, they hope to learn more about triggers for both.
So, you know exercise is good for you already. But this potential added twist? Very interesting. I can say this has never happened to me and I hope it never does. Making your O face at the gym only happens in certain movies (a friend told me.) However, I am intrigued. And I appreciate the dedicated researchers at Indiana University will spend more time on this in the future.
The study, published in the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy, did not determine how common it is for women to experience exercise-induced orgasm or exercise-induced sexual pleasure.
However, the authors noted that it took only five weeks to recruit the 370 women who experienced the phenomenon, suggesting it is not rare.
I am quite certain you would have NO trouble gathering volunteers. And a resource told me IU is one of the leading institutes on sex, gender and reproduction so big applause for that as well. And IU, if you want to do more research on orgasm that will procure details and data and could one day lead to them being as readily accessible as shamrocks in Ireland, well, I think we would all be interested in learning more.
Now, try not to think about this at work all day. You are welcome.
