What happens during the female orgasm?

In our increasingly digital world, intercouse and female body image are often misrepresented. Yet, intercouse makes people happy and plays an important role in social bonding as well as mental and physical health.

What happens during climaxing?

According to Medicalnewstoday, the debate about the purpose and routes that lead to women experiencing climaxing during intercouse is probably as old as medical science.

Although the male climaxing has a clear role from an evolutionary standpoint, in that it is central to the propagation of the human species, experts have not been able to agree on a similar “purpose” for the female climaxing.

From a physiological point of view, the path to love making arousal is straightforward.

Dr. Rachel N. Pauls, from the Divisions of Female Pelvic Floor Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at TriHealth/Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, OH explains, “In simplistic terms, genital arousal is characterized by increased blood flow to the pelvic region. In females, this vascular flow results in clitoral engorgement and stretching and accompanying vulvar swelling and genital (secretion) of fluid.”

“If a threshold is reached, climaxing can follow arousal. Activation of (nerve pathways) triggers pelvic floor skeletal muscle contractions that accompany love making satisfaction,” she adds.

So, should we view climaxing as simply being the result of reflex produced by our nerves? As so often in biology, things are more complicated. Our nerves, of course, transmit sensory signals to our brain, where studies have shown that love making pleasure is processed similarly to other types of pleasure.
