Itï¿½s no secret that men and women require different things to build up to the big ï¿½O.ï¿½ Women usually want more foreplay, and they take longer than men to achieve orgasm, to name a few. But despite differences in the path to climax, the way that men and women EXPERIENCE orgasm is remarkably similar. In two studies from the 1980s, scientists at the University of Minnesota Medical School measured the length, duration, and intensity of male and female orgasm. They found that BOTH genders experienced orgasm as a series of six to 15 very intense, regular contractions for about 20 to 30 seconds. Researchers called these initial contractions ï¿½Type 1 orgasm,ï¿½ and for some, that was the end of the orgasmic experience. Other study subjects, however, continued to have irregular, more mild contractions for an additional 30 to 90 seconds. This ï¿½continuationï¿½ of the orgasm became known as ï¿½Type 2 orgasm.ï¿½ The researchers concluded that some people experience primarily Type 1 orgasm while others regularly enjoy Type 2. But whatï¿½s most interesting about their findings is that these differences were INDIVIDUAL and NOT related to gender. When Stanford researchers repeated the experiment in the ï¿½90s, their results were the same. The Stanford study also found that men and women have similar increased levels of oxytocin or ï¿½the bonding hormoneï¿½ during orgasm. And yet another study at Oregonï¿½s Reed College found that women and men DESCRIBED orgasm using the same types of words. So what does this information mean for YOU? Psychologically speaking, knowing how your partner experiences pleasure is more likely to bring on your OWN orgasm. Just as we feel sad when we see someone cry, we feel desirous and ready for an orgasm when we see our partner have one. This might not be the case if women and men experienced orgasm in radically different ways! The shared orgasmic experience both enhances understanding between genders, and promotes lasting commitments. To uncover more mysteries of orgasms, check out other videos on this site.
