It’s Time to Rethink The Female Orgasm

A pioneering company says it’s time to rethink the female orgasm as more research sheds light on the important link between orgasms and mental wellbeing.

In heterosexual relationships, women have fewer orgasms than their male counterparts. Dubbed “the orgasm gap” or “the pleasure gap”, a recent study shows that 87% of heterosexual men almost always orgasmed during sex, compared to just 49% of heterosexual women.

The need for a new approach isn’t just about pleasure, however.  “The release of natural hormones during orgasm both stimulates and rebalances the brain, thanks to the presence of serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphins – however it isn’t common to think about the female orgasm in terms of health and wellbeing,” says Emotional Bliss, founder Paul Telford.

Oxytocin has the power to regulate emotional responses and improves desire to be touched while reducing stress and anxiety levels. Oxytocin naturally promotes deep sleep and relaxation and improves the immune response. It’s also known to increase libido and desire for intimacy.  Endorphins, often known as feel-good hormones, are a natural pain reliever that also boost levels of emotional wellbeing and pleasure centres and reduce feelings of discomfort and anxiety.

“Serotonin and dopamine are commonly used in antidepressants but during orgasm and post orgasm the brain will naturally rebalance the brain with the correct hormone and dosage,” Telford adds. “This lowers the levels of anxiety, stress, and depression – meaning we really should be thinking about women’s orgasms in terms of wellbeing and mental health, in just the same way as they’re considered so important to male wellbeing.

For women over 50, the link between orgasm and wellbeing is particularly pertinent, as the nerve endings and oestrogen levels in the body naturally decrease as a result of the menopause.

Emotional Bliss has been working with women living with conditions such as MS, diabetes, and menopause to create a revolutionary line of intimate massagers. The company has also consulted with some of the nation’s most respected psychosexual therapists while striving to develop products that help women to reconnect with themselves.

The Femblossom Heat and Womolia Heat intimate massagers were created to help women reconnect with their natural orgasm. The Femblossom Heat stimulates the sensitive nerve endings surrounding the clitoris and the labia simultaneously, making for a more pleasurable sensory experience. Its seven stimulating vibrating frequencies are accompanied with a delicately heated textured surface which works in tune with the body.

Sophisticated with a gentle curve, the Womolia Heat intimate massager has a heated angled tip which focuses sensations and can be used to stimulate the sensitive nerve endings within the entrance of the vagina, labia and the clitoris.
