AP ^ | 6/20/5 | EMMA ROSS

Posted on 06/20/2005 1:01:37 PM PDT by SmithL

COPENHAGEN -- New research indicates that parts of the brain that govern fear and anxiety are switched off when a woman is having an orgasm.

In the first study to map brain function during orgasm, scientists from the Netherlands also found that as a woman climaxes, an area of the brain that governs emotional control is also heavily deactivated.

Guys' brains usually shut down during the hunt.

What's with all the female related orgasm threads lately.

"The fact that there is no deactivation in faked orgasms means a basic part of a real orgasm is letting go.

They make it sound like the female orgasm is like some kind of nuclear bomb.

Yeah, what's up with that? I'd better investigate.

I know it's a rough job, but someone has to do it.

How do you re-activate it? I think a lot of people would like to know that.

Why is this news?

Who cares? What, all of 10 sec max, you can't fear anything? Big deal! That duration means everything for survival, don't it?

This is news when the brain shuts down for 10 *min*.

hmmmm...what part of the male anatomy has no conscience?

It is only appropriate that a female part would shut down accordingly.

Yeah, it's better to have part of your brain shut down than to be thinking "Dang! I shoulda married Harry!"

I have, in fact known of this phenomenon for years... but my ideas for providing this as a therapy treatment to women afraid of roller coasters went NOWHERE!

Maybe I should try again now that I can wave a study to back up my claims....

Elaine: How come he's gettin' so smart? I stopped having sex with Ben three days ago and I don't know no Portuguese?

Jerry: Are you all right?

Elaine: I don't know. It's just the last coupla days my mind has been, not good.

Jerry: Wait a second, I know what's happening. The no sex thing is having a reverse effect on you.

Elaine: What? What are you talking about?

Jerry: To a woman, sex is like the garbage man. You just take for granted the fact that any time you put some trash out on the street, a guy in a jumpsuit's gonna come along and pick it up. But now, it's like a garbage strike. The bags are piling up in your head. The sidewalk is blocked. Nothing's getting through. You're stupid.

Elaine: I don't understand.

Jerry: Exactly.

George: What is Tungsten or Wolfram?

Alex Trebek: We were looking for 'What is Tungsten, or Wolfram'.

Jerry: Is this a repeat?

George: No, no, no. Just lately, I've been thinking a lot clearer. Like this afternoon, (To television) what is chicken Kiev, (Back to Jerry) I really enjoyed watching a documentary with Louise.

Jerry: Louise! That's what's doin' it. You're no longer pre-occupied with sex, so your mind is able to focus.

George: You think?

Jerry: Yeah. I mean, let's say this is your brain. (Holds lettuce head) Okay, from what I know about you, your brain consists of two parts: the intellect, represented here (Pulls off tiny piece of lettuce), and the part obsessed with sex. (Shows large piece) Now granted, you have extracted an astonishing amount from this little scrap. But with no-sex-Louise, this previously useless lump, is now functioning for the first time in its existence. (Eats tiny piece of lettuce)

George: Oh my God. I just remembered where I left my retainer in second grade. I'll see ya. (He throws finished Rubik's cube to Jerry and he exits. Kramer enters)

They don't say whether this happens to the male brain or the female brain...
