The Magic of the female orgasm:  Five reasons why you should prioritize regular orgasms 

Did you know that women require an average of 14 minutes during partnered sex to hit the Magic O -- compared to an average of 8 minutes during masturbation? 

The term "post-orgasm glow" was coined to describe the euphoric sensation you feel after having great sex! 

Orgasms can vary in intensity, differ by sex position, and feel different for everyone. The female orgasm is not just an emotional and psychological response, but also a physiological one. 

Women who have regular vaginal orgasms tend to have lower resting heart rates and are less prone to employ maladaptive psychological coping methods than those who do not. 

Your brain produces oxytocin during orgasm. This is a feel-good hormone involved in social bonding, which partially explains why orgasms feel so fantastic and bring you closer to your partner. 

By increasing prolactin levels, orgasms can help you feel more relaxed

During orgasm, your brain produces more neurotransmitters and neuropeptides.  These chemicals can help alleviate stress, improve sleep, boost immunity, and elevate mood.

A positive self-image and self-love may be promoted via more fulfilling orgasms, which can improve your sexual functioning and sex in general. 

The Big O also has some instant skin benefits!  Orgasms produce a radiant flush on the face by boosting blood and oxygen flow to it which can stimulate collagen production. 

During orgasm, blood and nutrients flow to your vagina, which helps keep things down there in good working order. Healthy vagina = happy vagina.
