WTF IS…

Al­lor­gas­mia?

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE -

it’s an oddly scary-sound­ing name for a re­ally nBD thing. al­lor­gas­mia hap­pens when you’re hav­ing sex with your so but find your­self fan­ta­sis­ing about some­one else (aaah, Ryan Gosling…) in or­der to get off. this doesn’t mean you like your mate any less, says sex­ol­o­gist Emily morse, host of the ‘sex With Emily’ pod­cast. ‘think about it like this: you aren’t re­plac­ing your phys­i­cal con­nec­tion with your part­ner. You’re en­hanc­ing it by tap­ping into your fan­tasies,’ she says. so if it’s not lead­ing to anx­i­ety, ob­ses­sion or re­ac­tions that could hurt your re­la­tion­ship, let your al­lor­gas­mia out to play!
