The feeling of an orgasm is one of the greatest sensations the body can experience. Orgasms have been studied from the earliest years and recent scientific studies have proved it to be beneficial for your emotional and physical health. Women are thought to have up to 11 different types of orgasms. In a sexually repressed society here are some benefits of orgasm that can sooth your aches and pains:
Orgasms produce the hormone Oxytocin which is also called the ‘love hormone’. Oxytocin is a stress reliever and natural antidote to the stress hormone in the body.
