Orgasms feel good…like REALLY good! But these a-hem good vibes are just the tip of the pleasure iceberg when it comes to the benefits of orgasms.
The physiological processes that occur during orgasms can have major physical and emotional benefits. Because when we orgasm, our whole body gets involved. Hormones are released, muscles are engaged, and our blood gets pumping. So it’s like you’re training for a marathon, but in the bedroom!
So get out your vibrator and lube because we’re talking about the MANY benefits you can expect from orgasms.
Have you ever felt blissful or even giddy after having an orgasm? Almost like you’re on top of the world? c’mon I can’t be the only one Well there’s a scientific reason for this euphoric post-climax feeling.
When we orgasm, tons of ‘happy hormones’ are released into the body. This includes oxytocin (aka the love hormone), dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. These hormones can last hours after your big ‘O’ leaving you feeling like you’re walking on air all day long!

Along with making you feel VERY happy, orgasms can also help you sleep like a baby. This is because all of the above ‘happy hormones’ also aid in helping both the body and mind relax, making it easier for you to ease into sleep.
So this is your sign to add mastubation to your nighttime routine!
When you orgasm, your pelvic floor muscles rhythmically contract (but like in a hot way). And actively engaging these muscles can help strengthen them just like you can with kegels! This can help you have stronger orgasms, prevent incontinence later in life, and help improve post-birth recovery.
So orgasms are basically mini workouts…I guess that makes me an athlete?

Remember when I said orgasms can release endorphins?? Well not only do these hormones make you feel happy, but they also act as natural painkillers in the body!
So next time you’re having menstrual cramps, a headache, or just general fatigue you know what to do!
