20 things you never knew about orgasms...

Some interesting facts about orgasms:-
  1. Ever wondered what your partners' orgasm feels like? Researchers have found that men's and women's descriptions of hitting bliss are in fact very similar.
  2. The average guy takes between two and 10 minutes to hit nirvana, whereas women take over 20 minutes.
  3. But on the other hand, a man's orgasm tends to be shorter than a woman's, which will last between three and 15 seconds.
  4. The word 'orgasm' comes from the Greek orgasmos, 'to swell as with moisture, be excited or eager'.
  5. Women lucky enough to experience female ejaculation usually expel less than 1 teaspoon of pale, sweet tasting fluid when they climax.
  6. No matter what his shape and size down below, the likelihood of hitting the jackpot in bed doesn't change.
  7. Usually, a woman's orgasm produces ripples of pleasure towards her stomach, which is thought to help draw sperm towards her eggs. But during her period, the contractions travel in the opposite direction.
  8. The older we get, the shorter our orgasm will last, which is a great excuse to get cracking now.
  9. It might not always seem that way, but a man's bits get super-sensitive after he hits his bliss point, just like women's do.
  10. Ever wondered why we can't help pulling faces when we reach the big O? It's because the parts of our brain that control pain and orgasms overlap...
  11. .... but the plus side to looking like we've just stubbed our toe is that we're half as sensitive to pain when preoccupied.
  12. It's possible to climax while we sleep, but if we wake up feeling horny it doesn't mean we've been practising an unusual form of sleep-walking - night-time pleasure is created in the brain, rather than by physical stimulation.
  13. An orgasm burns just two or three calories (that equals one measly M & M). The good news is we burn around 50 getting there - enough for a whole handful.
  14. It's official: orgasms are good for our health. Benefits include boosting our longevity and immune system, and cutting the risk of heart disease and cancer.
  15. Although its rare, some men have found their orgasm so overwhelming, they've died on the job. And it's more likely if they're in the act of cheating on their partner.
  16. One in three men aged 18 - 59 suffers from premature ejaculation. And that makes for a lot of frustrated women.
  17. The G in G-spot is short for Grafenberg, the researcher who first wrote about it in 1950. Other spots to look out for include the A-spot (located on the vaginal wall, just past the G-spot) and the U-spot (either side of the urethra).
  18. Women might be great at faking it, but when the Big O is real, there are usually some tell-tale signs - the heart rate and breathing increase, the pupils dilate, the vaginal muscles spasm and the skin flushes.
  19. Although a man's orgasm feels very similar to a woman's, ours come in waves of pleasure, whereas men feel theirs as a single, blissful peak.
  20. The more times a man gets his rocks off in a lifetime, the lower his chances are of getting prostate cancer. So what are we waiting for?
