Knee Orgasms, Nose Orgasms, oh my!

Wired News is always one to cater to a large variety of interesting topics, but one article I recently ran across that Google News Alerts delivered to my email is a wired news special on fmri studies and orgasms.

Of the things discussed were the real existance of so-called knee orgasms, nose orgasms, and a number of other orgasms. What the article is getting at is the very idea of what an orgasm is may be changing based on these studies.

Komisaruk: Orgasms have been described as being elicitable from any part of the body — the mouth, the nipples, the anus, the hand. It leads us to think that there is a general orgasmic principle of building up excitation from different parts of the body leading to a climax and a resolution — not necessarily ending in ejaculation, but a feeling of an orgasmic experience.

The article also discusses the surprising finding that some women who had no feeling below the waist were even able to achieve genital orgasm through the vagus nerve.

  1. Its true. I thought I was the only person in the universe that had this! It was only until my thirties and with a very attentive partner. It is interesting to note that it does not involve stimulation of the knees only a very intence sensation after an regular exceptional orgasim in the usual place! There is usually a delayed responce so it is like I get two! Also I did not know this existed until after I experienced it so it is not pychologically produced.

  2. I tried rubbing my knees sensually, but no matter how vigorous the attempts, I didn’t have a climax. My nose is also a cold fish. Help! Am I destined to be limited to boring penile orgasms for the rest of my life? And what happens if I suddenly become paraplegic???

    Obviously these are urgent questions that Science should concentrate on solving immediately. After all, if everyone knew how to orgasm from a handshake or light stare, the world would be a very different place. Not necessarily any better (hello disturbing family thanksgiving dinners), but certainly more interesting.
