WHAT IS ORGASM
An orgasm is an intense feeling of sexual pleasure that occurs during sexual activity. It is also sometimes called the arrival or climax, when both the man and the woman experience an orgasm.
What happens during an orgasm?
When you have an orgasm, your heart beats faster and your breathing becomes faster and heavier.
In women, intense, pleasurable release of sexual tension is accompanied by contraction of the genital muscles. A woman can have more than one orgasm if she continues to be stimulated.
Men are elicited by muscle contraction orgasm, and a semen-containing tug from the penis (ejaculation).
After that, there is a period of time when a man cannot have another orgasm. This recovery phase, in which the penis and testicles shrink to normal size, can last from a couple of minutes to several hours.

Orgasms in men and women are often associated with involuntary actions, including vocalizations and muscle spasms in other areas of the body. In addition, as a rule, a euphoric sensation can also cause an orgasm.
After orgasm, there is usually fatigue, both in men and women, so after intercourse there is a need for rest. This is due to the release of prolactin. Prolactin is a typical neuroendocrine response in depressed mood and irritability.

A recent study at the University of Groningen showed that there are significant differences in brain activity during female and male orgasm. PET scans have shown that both female and male orgasms turn off areas of the brain associated with anxiety and fear. It has been found that the male orgasm focuses the brain on sensory signals from the genitals more than the female orgasm.
