4. MEN­TAL

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - SEX REPORT -

In ex­cit­ing tri­als con­ducted with MRI scan­ners at Rut­gers Univer­sity in New Jer­sey, USA, women were able to reach the iden­ti­cal cli­max that they might have reached via phys­i­cal stim­u­la­tion – say, from mas­tur­ba­tion – sim­ply through us­ing the power of their minds. Yes, what we’re say­ing is that it’s pos­si­ble to think your­self to or­gasm with­out any ex­ter­nal phys­i­cal stim­u­la­tion at all. How: The neu­ro­sci­en­tist who ran the tri­als – The Science Of Or­gasm coau­thor Dr Barry Komis­aruk – says that the path to men­tal or­gasm is dif­fer­ent for every woman. In his study he ex­plains: ‘ Some women used com­bi­na­tions of erotic fan­tasy ex­er­cises and oth­ers pic­tured more ab­stract sen­sual ex­pe­ri­ences – waves of en­ergy mov­ing through their bod­ies’. This kind of ‘brain­gasm’ is re­port hav­ing this type of or­gasm spon­ta­neously at night dur­ing sleep.

To im­prove your chances of ex­pe­ri­enc­ing this, fo­cus on over­all sex­ual health. Re­duce stress and eat well, en­sur­ing your diet con­tains foods that can help to regulate the hor­mones re­spon­si­ble for li­bido – think zinc, mag­ne­sium and a range of omegas – such as lob­sters and oys­ters (they’re an aphro­disiac for a rea­son). In­dulge in a lit­tle choco­late, too: it stim­u­lates en­dor­phin re­lease, and it’s known for the sen­su­ous­ness of its melt­ing tex­ture and scent.
