Hump Day: Sensory Mapping for pleasure

3.21.2012


Wondering what stimulating different parts of the vagina looks like?  Wonder no more!  Scientists have done fMRI technology with women during different types sexual stimuli and have learned how the brain reacts to each.

They found some fascinating results.  For instance, they found that the female's clitoris when stimulated shows up in the same position on the sensory cortex as when a man's penis is stimulated- further linking the two pleasure zones.

Additional research found varied sexual experiences are linked to different parts of the sensory cortex, such as stimulation of the front vaginal wall versus stimulation of the nipples.  This research proves how orgasmic different stimuli truly are, and can prove beneficial in the medical community according to researchers.
