The Big O isn’t orgasm
Oxytocin is produced in many parts of the body, including the brain (pineal gland), posterior retina of the eye, thymus, pancreas, testicles, ovaries, and adrenal glands. Oxytocin is best known for its role in inducing labor and its biological basis for human attachment and bonding. It is responsible for causing contractions in smooth muscles, such as blood vessels and organs, and it also fosters an emotional response between people who love each other, such as husband and wife, or mother and child. Osytocin stimulates male erection during lactation, uterine contraction during birth, and it is released in our bodies when we cuddie, touch ensually, and when we experience an orgasm.
Oxytocin in Women: the Bridge between Touch and Sex
Touch is vital to humans, and most of us don’t get nearly enough of it. We are all affected by touch, and it’s not all in the mind, but rather the results of complex hormonal responses that actually change our bodies and brains. Oxytocin makes us feel good about the person causing the oxytocin to be released. Oxytocin promotes a desire to be touched, which causes a bonding effect between the two persons touching. Even thinking of someone we love can stimulate this hormone. When women in good marriages were asked to think about their husbands the levels of oxytocin in their blood rose quickly. There’s more. Oxytocin also plays a significant role in our sexuality. Higher levels of oxytocin result in greater sexual receptivity, and because oxytocin increases testosterone production (which is responsible for sex drive in both men and women), sex drive can also increase.
Moreover, this hormone does not just create a sexual desire in women: coupled with estrogen, it creates a desire to be penetrated (that is, it makes her want intercourse). Orgasm causes levels of oxytocin to spike even higher (three to five times normal) creatine the afterglow closeness that is experienced following lovemaking. The fact that sex increases oxytocin levels can be helpful for women who complain that they never feel like sex. Having sex, even when you have little desire, will actually affect you in ways that will result in a greater sex drive. This also explains, at least in part, why many women find that the more sex they have, the more they want, and the less sex they have, the less they want.
Sexual arousal is triggered by any signal that we consider erotic. Hearing, seeing, smelling, or thinking about something sexy can elicit sexual arousal. The brain is known as the largest sex organ because of its intergral role in sexual arousal. The brain is not the only responsible party in sexual arousal. The spinal cord also palays a large part in interpresting sexual signals. The hypothalamus tells another rpart of the brain to release hormones into the bloodstream. Because of oxytocin roles in bonding and reducing cravings, we belive it is the key to authentic monogamy and, of course, peac between the sheets. That is, if you want to stay inlove, you need to sustain the production of xoytocin. This happens effortlessly until some point after convetional sex enters the equation. Because oxytocin stimulates the body’s cells to produce nitric oxide, it sitmulates vasodilatation. Nitric oxide is a powerful vasodilator, which is very important for cardiovascular and sexual health. Oxytocin is released in both men and women during an orgasm. In women, oxytocin should be a telltale sign of guys who wonder if their lover is faking her orgasm or not. This orgasmic rush of oxytocin also causes the blood vessels to vasodilate giving us the rosy, glowing sex flush. Also, as mentioned earlier, oxytocin gives you the peaceful, relaxed feeling that all is right with the world after a great sexual experience.
