Do Orgasms Help For Cramps?
Yes, this may draw me in some good search terms, hits, increase my stats and fill up my Spam Queue? Or hell…Splogger me to death? I haven’t had (m)any of those lately!
I got my period today and was always curious about this one (outside of what I already knew.)
And yes…you’re all just dying out there to know if I “conducted my own little scientific experiment?” *PA laughing*
Well, unfortunately this post may be a bit brief. The answer my darling readers is: Yes, No, Maybe So.
Yes. Absolutely Scientific! No, really. That is science! Who the fuck knows???
I looked and looked and looked for research until I (almost) went blind! Oh, and that is true. You will NOT go blind from masturbating! I don’t care if you do it 5,000 times a day! Your vision may become somewhat blurred due to exhaustion but do not fear, it will return to normal!
So, what’s the “scientific” deal?
Alright, when you have your period, your uterine muscles are contracting like hell due to hormones called prostaglandins, right? So, why the hell would an orgasm help? Well, apart from feeling good, there is a “reason” why it might make your body feel good–when you’re on your period.
Endorphins will be released. Yes, the happy hormone and it also blocks pain receptors. So while you’re floating away on your wee river of bliss, you’re (probably) not feeling any pain either! Also, physically when you are having your “earth-shatterer,” you are screwing up the uterine contraction “schedule” that the prostaglandins are already making your uterus follow.
Too Cool for School, right?
Hold up. When having an orgasm, you can also release Oxytocin. This is another “feel good” hormone but it’s quite different. It also plays a very different role in this scenario. It makes your uterine muscles contract–basically like the prostaglandins. And remember…this is post-orgasm so…now are you back to having cramps?
Shit. Was the entire thing a bust?
I did read something else, in that part of the cervix dilates slightly and remains so for anywhere between five to 10 minutes. This may also play a role? However, only in the immediate? Maybe?
So that takes me back the the answer: Yes, No, Maybe So.
It could depend and vary from woman to woman?
It also may depend upon just how terrible your cramps are to begin with! I mean, some women can’t get out of bed, off the couch…fuck me…off the floor!!!
And what’s worse? For you men that may not be in the know…there can be all types of hormonal weirdness going on so when you do get your period, you can be as horny as hell but too sick to actually do anything about it! Even TRY and masturbate (or have sex…) to perhaps make yourself feel better!
It’s true. Not very fair at all now, is that?
