Study: Women's orgasms relieve stress, anxiety

Study: Women's Orgasms Relieve Stress, Anxiety Researchers Couldn't Get Reliable Results From Men

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- For women, having an orgasm is more than just pleasurable -- it's apparently also a stress-reliever.

Researchers in the Netherlands have found that the part of a woman's brain that governs fear and anxiety is turned off during an orgasm. But it remains active if she's faking.

In the study, researchers injected men and women volunteers with a dye that shows changes in the brain function on a scan. For women, the scanner measured brain activity at rest, and during real and faked orgasms.

Researchers said it was hard to get reliable results from the men because the scanner needs activities that last at least two minutes -- and men's climaxes don't last that long.

The results of the study were presented Monday to an annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

Women get more raw pleasure, men get more raw satisfaction.

'Husband: "I think it's a stress headache." '

It was probably a bunch of males doing the research, just so they could use this line.

Ahhhh, but those were quotes of unnamed "woman" and "man." I was not addressing anyone.




Absurdly-pedantic legalistic loophole. I win!

If by "wife" you include girlfriends too, well, some of us can just send a "ping."

Men's brains tend to turn off before the sex even starts!

I've been trying variations of that line for 18 years, and none of them work.

Next time you are in the mood, take a glass of water and two aspirin to your wife. Hopefully, she will say, "What's that for? I don't have a headache." Your response: "Aha!"

Good luck
