  • Researchers reveal the Solution to the Female Orgasm Enigma

Researchers have finally revealed the solution to the enigma that was the female orgasm. It seems that prehistoric females had orgasms as stimulation triggers for releasing eggs for fertilization.

Scientists have been puzzled for centuries regarding the question of why females have orgasms. A bunch of Yale researchers have chanced upon the answer to this one.

Apparently, it has everything to do with ovulation. Sometime ago in our distant past as a species, females only released an egg after being stimulated by males. This occurred before or while sexual intercourse was taking place.  

This state of affairs holds true for many species even today. Lagomorphs, ferrets, camels and felines all display such a reproductive setup. Once the stimulation process got going, the females would most probably have released a number of powerful hormones.

These would have caused ovulation to take place. Finally, after the release of an egg, the fertilization process with the male sperm was completed.

However, and here is the catch, over thousands of years, the females of our species have managed to start ovulating on their own. This process occurs once a month.  

Essentially, what this means is that the female orgasm has lost its roots which were based in necessity. It does not have any purpose other than pleasure in the current scenario.

This free-floating nature of the orgasm and its disconnection from reproduction is something which has the scientists in a state of amazement. In the past all human females ovulated upon orgasm.

Later on such species as canines, cows and rodents not to mention human beings evolved to the point where they ovulated on their own without external stimulation.

There are certain hormones that female mammals release during sex. These include oxytocin and prolactin. They make the female feel very comfortable and good as well.   

They are also responsible for starting ovulation. The hormonal response sets into motion a series of biological reactions which culminate in the female orgasm.

As for the reason behind the female orgasm, well, it seems that it exists as a stimulant for further sexual encounters. Also reproduction becomes something which could be taken into consideration by the human females thanks to the power of the orgasm to give a great surplus of pleasure and enjoyment.

The bonding process between the male and the female also is strengthened thanks to the female orgasm. This ensures that they will endure as a couple and adequately raise their children.

Finally, there is the fact that females choose their mates based on the amount of sexual satisfaction they can give them. A male who gives more powerful orgasms to a female has stronger and more virile sperm and will prove to be a better partner and caretaker in the long run.

This study appears today in the journal JEZ-Molecular and Developmental Evolution.
