Could regular orgasms hold the key to happiness for menopausal women? An increasing body of research suggests that sexual pleasure and orgasm releases a hormone which is vital for women’s well-being. Emotional Bliss, a pioneering company which promotes the health benefits of the female orgasm, is now asking why this growing evidence is being ignored.
Oestrogen is the sex hormone that is responsible for regulating the female menstrual cycle, and fertility. Mostly produced in the ovaries, it plays an important role in women’s health – from cognitive function to bone health, with benefits to the cardiovascular system as well as mental health. However, this hormone does decline with age, and it is this decline that triggers the start of the perimenopause and then menopause, as well as their associated symptoms.
Physical symptoms include hot flushes, night sweats, weight gain, muscle mass loss, loss of bone strength and headaches; emotional symptoms are no more pleasant, and include mood swings, brain fog, cognitive difficulty, depression, and anxiety. Quite often, those symptoms are treated with medication – but research is now suggesting that sexual pleasure could provide an effective and much more accessible treatment.
Research and Emotional Bliss study data suggests that oestrogen can be produced by the brain, and that it can be released through sexual pleasure and orgasm; this discovery could be a game-changer for women’s health.
Of the 30 menopausal women who took part in the Emotional Bliss study, every single one recorded improvement to their mental and emotional well-being with regular orgasm, with a significant reduction of the menopause side effects which they were suffering from.
“After being part of the Emotional Bliss Study I honestly cannot believe the difference,” one of the women said. “No one, including doctors, seem to take menopause seriously, and women are left floundering – trying to find ways of getting through this stage in our lives. We’re all taught about puberty and pregnancy but not about this stage, which is just as scary.
“Thank goodness Emotional Bliss think we’re worth the research and are looking for answers to help us help ourselves naturally, without having to consider putting hormones or supplements into our bodies. Surely, free orgasms whenever we choose to indulge are better for us and much more fun than expensive drugs and medicines!”
Oestrogen is not the only hormone produced and released through sexual pleasure: orgasm also releases oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins – all of them known to combat feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression.
Paul Telford, Founder of Emotional Bliss, said: “What remains clear is that significantly more research is needed. The full anatomy of the clitoris was only discovered in 2005 by Professor Helen O’Connell and the G spot has recently been debunked as a myth perpetuated in part by Cosmopolitan magazine in the early 80s (for which they now apologise).
“Given this, and the fact that the menopause is only now being given airtime, medical science appears to be woefully inadequate when understanding the female body. This is especially disappointing when compared to the comprehensive scientific data available on the male body.
“At Emotional Bliss, we encourage all women to regularly reconnect with their bodies through sexual pleasure and orgasm to maintain their emotional wellbeing. Considering the recent linking oestrogen production in the brain and oestrogen release during sexual arousal, this is especially important for perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal women.”
