What orgasms do to your body is no secret — they make you feel good. And beyond knowing how to have one and how to make your partner have one, the research seems almost pointless, right? But there are some weird things orgasms do to your brain that can make you appreciate the big O even more. (And remind you that science is totally sexy.)
It's also pretty amazing to know what happens to your body when you orgasm and how your post-orgasm reactions are related to biology. Like the way you want to snuggle your partner, or the way you're able to push away fears and anxieties with an orgasm (which can make just about any bad day feel a little bit better.) It's not just a coincidence, or because an orgasm simply feels good. It all has to do with the reactions in your brain and the centers that light up as you feel the sensations of an orgasm.
