The Big "O" is not a ZERO

The Big "O" is not a ZERO

Not only does the big O feel amazing, it's good for you too. Check out the health benefits for having orgasms...

  • Burns calories (can you think of a more fun way to work out?).
  • Helps you sleep. Orgasms act as a natural tranquilizer, because the release of endorphins is very calming.
  • Those endorphins kick in as well if you're dealing with pain from a headache or cramps. They help to increase your tolerance to pain. Guess that puts an end to the age old "headache" excuse.
  • Relieves stress and tension. Your increased heartbeat and blood flow and flexed muscles comes to a relaxing conclusion when you orgasm.
  • Calms your cravings for junk food. Sexual stimulation triggers production of a natural amphetamine in your body called phenetylamine, which regulates your appetite.

Well there you have it, in case you needed some more reasons to get it on.

Fit's Tip: Researchers believe that when a women orgasms, those muscular contractions you feel actually are working to pull sperm up into your cervix, so it has a better chance of reaching the egg. Use this info and apply it where needed girls. If you're trying to get pregnant, I'd shoot for the big O.

What sucks is that my man will be going to town on me, and thoughts of the day pop in my head and I lose it...he is talented...sometimes I just can't get my head in it... I'm all in.

Snow, yes we do have fewer..but our's can be multiple and can last much longer than their's. Now, you just have to find the man who has the "talent" to get the job done...and if you find him and fall in love....LORD there great!

And it usually takes so much longer for us, too. And women tend to get distracted much more easily on the way to climax than men as well. Boo!

I think it's not cool at all that women have less orgasms than men. Every woman should own a vibrator.
