What's Actually Happening During Sex?

Ever thought about what's happening inside our bodies when we do the horizontal mambo? Think of this like a really risqué episode of How Stuff Works.

Sex is complex. Physical, emotional, and psychological. Our bodies sense the mood, our nervous system processes that information, we release hormones on hormones on hormones! This leads to physical changes in the body as we become more or less aroused–the uterus moves, the clitoris expands, the penis enlarges, glands produce lubricant, and our pelvic floors rythmically contract! Amazing. Join us for a little dive into the wonderfully elaborate and now not-so-mysterious world of gettin' jiggy with it.

Ever wonder why on TV couples go from kissing to full blown orgasm within the time it takes you to refill your wine glass?  Well, this isn’t realistic.  The sexual response cycle is complex and there are necessary stages to progress through—these are called the phases of arousal.  No idea what that means?  Watch this video, and appreciate and embrace the stages the body goes through to reach the final peak of orgasm.  By better understanding the sexual response, and the sensations that are occurring in your body, we hope you'll gain further awareness and confidence and be able to savor and appreciate each moment. It doesn’t have to be all about the O.
