Why you need an orgasm

Posted By on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 12:16 PM

Science says an orgasm can take away your pain.

After talking to my friend this morning, I realize that she needs one.

iVillage says:

Because of this secretion, endorphins (hormone-like chemicals that bear a close functional resemblance to morphine) are released. When a person is aroused or excited, oxytocin levels not only begin to increase, they are the reason that orgasms come about. Studies have shown that a rise in oxytocin levels can relieve pain; everything from headaches, cramps and overall body aches can be diminished with a simple roll in the hay.

I've found that after a stressful day, sex with the boy toy or with my favorite sex toy makes all the tension go away.

After talking to my friend and listening to her complain about a nosy coworker, I realized that the problem isn't the co-worker, but her lack of "cumming."

She hasn't had sex in two years and I marvel at that. While she doesn't notice it, everything bothers her. That's because she's backed up.

A recent survey revealed that people who have more sex reported that they felt more at ease, happier and learned how to handle stress better. So perhaps the term "sexual frustration" is not too far from the truth.

So if you're anything like my friend, let me leave you with this last fact about why you need an orgasm:

Although the orgasm is sometimes referred to as the "little death," having at least two orgasms a week can increase your life span.
