Orgasm is a moment of intense pleasure that has long intrigued and fascinated researchers, doctors and the curious. But did you know that there’s still a lot to discover about this phenomenon? Here are 10 surprising facts about orgasm that you may not know.

1. Orgasms can relieve migraines

Although it may seem counterintuitive, having an orgasm can actually help reduce the pain of migraines. When you reach the peak of pleasure, your body releases endorphins, which are natural painkillers. So this can offer some relief during a migraine attack.

2. The world record for the number of orgasms in an hour

Think you’re good at achieving ecstasy? The world record for the number of orgasms in an hour is held by a woman who climaxed 134 times in just 60 minutes. For men, the record is 16 orgasms in an hour.

3. There are different types of orgasm

There isn’t just one type of orgasm! Experts have identified several types of orgasm, including clitoral, vaginal, mixed and multiple. Each of these orgasms is associated with different sensations and can be achieved through a variety of stimulations.

4. Animals can have orgasms too

We’re not the only ones to experience sexual pleasure! Many animal species also seem to experience orgasm. These include primates, dolphins, elephants and even some insects.

5. Orgasms can improve your mood

As well as being pleasurable, orgasms can actually boost your mood. When you have an orgasm, your body releases hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin, which are responsible for feelings of happiness and well-being.

6. There’s an International Orgasm Day

December 21 is International Orgasm Day, also known as Global Orgasm Day. This day was created in 2006 to promote world peace and raise awareness of the importance of sexual pleasure.

7. The adage “sex makes you lose your mind” is not so false

During orgasm, certain areas of the brain show reduced activity, notably those linked to judgment, reason and self-control. So the expression “making love makes you lose your mind” isn’t so far off the mark.

8. Women can ejaculate during orgasm

Female ejaculation, a still little-known phenomenon, is possible in some women during orgasm. This liquid comes from Skene’s glands and can be expelled in small or large quantities. The debate as to whether or not this liquid contains urine continues in the scientific community.

9. Orgasm can occur without genital stimulation

In some rare cases, people have reported reaching orgasm without any sexual stimulation. These spontaneous orgasms can be triggered by non-sexual sensations such as laughter, exercise or even sleep.

10. Average orgasm duration

The average orgasm lasts between 10 and 30 seconds, although this can vary from person to person. In men, orgasm duration tends to decrease with age, while in women it tends to increase.

In short, orgasm is a fascinating phenomenon that still holds many secrets. Whether it’s to relieve pain, improve your mood or simply enjoy a pleasurable moment, it’s important to better understand this universal experience of pleasure.
