Forget everything you know about multiple orgasms (and that’s probably a lot, if you’ve ever picked up a magazine about health and beauty) and take a seat because there’s something science needs to let you know: Some women can have up to 100 orgasms at a time. One right after the other. Orgasm after orgasm after orgasm. Exactly the amount of orgasms you told all your friends in high school you gave to your girlfriend from out of town who no one will ever meet because she’s really shy and doesn’t visit much. 100 orgasms.
This news comes courtesy of a new documentary which, The Sun reports, set out to investigate the question of whether or not women could orgasm more than once. While it wasn’t a surprise that some women could orgasm one, two, maybe five times, investigation also led to the discovery that there are a rare few women who could experience la petit mort so many times that there will probably soon be congressmen out there denouncing this wantonness and demanding that all women adhere to a strict “one orgasm per day” rule.
From The Sun:
Experts reckon that the climaxing state is possible with a mix of relaxation, yoga and bonding.
Those with the ability of being “super orgasmic” typically have greater blood flow to their genitals compared to “single orgasmic” women.
Oh The Sun! So colloquial with their “experts reckon!” And:
Women who experience single orgasms will usually have low levels of alpha waves – which rise as they climax.
But, “super orgasmic” women have high alpha waves throughout masturbation – which means they’re relaxed during the whole experience.
Being able to be this relaxed sounds like it would take a lot of effort, but since having more orgasms has been linked to a longer happier life, it’s in everyone’s best interest that we not only do more research on this heretofore untapped supernatural ability and then try to harness its powers for good. And it’s also a good reminder that we all need to relax more, lest some people be robbed of experiencing more than a few orgasms at a time.
Of course, the discovery of the super orgasm is not without its problems. According to Rebecca Reid over at The Telegraph, one woman she spoke to about the ability has actually begun to hide it due to the fact that it “led to unwanted sexual attention” as well as her partners viewing it as some sort of “party trick” and falsely believing that more orgasms meant that she’d be open to trying more extreme things in the bedroom.
Many of the women in the documentary, however, have had much more positive experiences:
Jennette, who travels to America to have her brain function analysed while experiencing super orgasms, says: “As a Christian you get told that God makes you feel good. So when I have an orgasm and it’s the best feeling in the world, so as far as I am concerned God gave me that power.”
There’s one caveat: Not all women who will want to have a super orgasm will be able to. Reid, for instance, who bills herself as someone who should be able to have more orgasms than others simply due to the fact that her whole career is based around sex and sex research, wasn’t able to have one, even if after hours and hours of trying. And, Reid points out, that having multiple orgasms can become an even harder prospect when your sexual partner sees it not as part of the journey, but as a way to “level up” and show off their sexual prowess, even if it means discomfort for the person on whom the stultifying jolts of passion are to be bestowed upon.
So: Watch the documentary if you can — it’s on Channel 4 in The UK — and take heart in the fact that humanity’s progressed so far that we’ve gone from pretending that the female orgasm doesn’t exist to trying to see whether 100 orgasms (or more!) are possible. But don’t try too hard to make one happen, because when the main ingredient is relaxation, clumsy efforts will only lead to anger and disappointment.
