Centered around a search for a female arousal pill, new research into women’s orgasm is producing some fascinating results
Imagine participating in a scientific study in which you were told to watch Candida Royalle erotic films and masturbate while an electronic device measures your brain waves. Doesn’t sound too bad, does it? Current research on orgasm is fascinating, and the great article here reviews several very interesting and important studies currently being conducted relating to women and orgasm.
What scientists know right now is really the bottom line: Viagra and similar drugs work well in both men and women to increase blood flow to the genitals -- but increased blood flow doesn’t necessarily mean increased libido. Being prepared for sex means not only being physically aroused, but mentally aroused as well -- something a pill just can’t do for us. It’s the process of mental arousal that’s intriguing scientists now.
By using some ... interesting pieces of equipment (i.e. a dildo with a sensor on the end) researchers are now working to pinpoint the parts of the brain that activate during female orgasm. Their experiments are intriguing, to say the least, and it’s a pleasure to read about women’s orgasms being the focus of serious scientific study. Something else we really like about this article is the great sidebar showing facial close-ups of women having orgasms. There’s also the fact that the researchers chose to show study participants Candida Royalle films, which have long been some of our favorites ... if you’re interested in any of her films, click on any of the pictures on the right side of this page.
