They are usually associated with involuntary actions, including muscular spasms in multiple areas of the body, a general euphoric sensation and, frequently, body movements and vocalizations. Human orgasms usually result from physical sexual stimulation of the penis in males typically accompanying ejaculation and of the clitoris in females. The health effects surrounding the human orgasm are diverse. There are many physiological responses during sexual activity, including a relaxed state created by prolactin, as well as changes in the central nervous system such as a temporary decrease in the metabolic activity of large parts of the cerebral cortex while there is no change or increased metabolic activity in the limbic i.

It has long been a subject of debate and speculation whether women can have two different types of orgasm - one as a result of external clitoral stimulation and the other as a result of vaginal penetration. The study was carried out by measuring tiny variations in blood flow patterns during different types of sexual contact to establish how the clitoris and vaginal complex responded - either "during manual self-stimulation of the external clitoris" or "during vaginal penetration with a wet tampon," the study explains. A Mhz flat probe and a vaginal probe was used to carry out functional sonography scans. Already have an account? Log in here.

The clitoris is a small organ with a lot of nerve endings that peeks out from the tiptop of the vulva, is often covered by a hood, and extends down the inside of the labia. The best way to stimulate the clitoris is by gently rubbing with the fingers, palm, or tongue in a back and forth or circular motion. Instead of a penis, try fingers or a sex toy. Anal orgasms are much more common in men because of the prostate, but can also be achieved simply by rubbing the outside of the anal opening as well as stimulating the inside of the anus with a finger.
