A bunch of sexologists (yup, those are real) in Belgium studied videos of women walking and were able to pinpoint which women orgasmed from intercourse and which didn’t. How can people tell how you orgasm? Apparently getting orgasms from intercourse loosens up some of your muscles and, well, puts a spring in your step.
Another weird correlation that the study found? How you orgasm actually can be an indicator of your mental health. The bad news? Most women orgasm most easily through clitoral stimulation, and the study says that women who orgasm from intercourse generally have better mental health. To quote Liz Lemon, “What the what?!”
This isn’t to say that if intercourse isn’t how you orgasm that you’re a nutcase. Correlation isn’t the same as causation, and it’s a little unsettling that the study would imply that, deliberately or not. Do what you need to do–within the confines of the law and your own safety and health, of course–to get your own rocks off. It’s seriously no one’s business how you orgasm except yours and your partner’s.
In any case, while the study is, er, interesting, doesn’t it weird you out a little bit? There are guys dissecting dead old ladies to find women’s G-spots, and now there are people trying to figure out how you orgasm based on the fluidity of your leg movements. Not only that, but how accurate can this stuff really be? If you sprain your ankle or something, will people assume how you orgasm is something kinky or illegal?
Aren’t there better things we can spend research time and money on? You know, like video games?
Do you think people can tell how you orgasm from how you walk? Do you think how you orgasm really affects your mental health? Do you think this study is a weird idea or insightful? Tell us in the comments!
