The not so equivalent male and female orgasms

Now we all know that, at least generally speaking, men and women place slightly different degrees of importance on physical vs. emotional characteristics.AA Scientists in the Netherlands have recently found that this difference is also key to how men and women achieve orgasm.AA The brain scans used in the study "suggest that for men, the physical aspects of sex play a much more significant part in arousal than they do for women, for whom ambience, mood and relaxation are at least as important."AA Now you can finally confront your boys who have been hating on you for your candelabras and Barry White albums - that ish is essential!

Other interesting tidbits from the study - keep your socks on, despite how silly you look wearing them and nothing else:

"The experiments also revealed a rather surprising effect: both men and women found it easier to have an orgasm when they kept their socks on. Draughts in the scanning room left couples complaining of "literally cold feet", and providing a pair of socks allowed 80 per cent rather than 50 per cent to reach a climax while their brains were scanned."

Too bad there isn’t a way to hook your girl up to a brain scan without her knowing:

"The scans also show that while women may be able to fool their partners with a fake orgasm, the difference is obvious in the brain. Parts of the brain that handle conscious movement light up during fake orgasms but not during real ones, while emotion centres close down during the real thing but never when a woman is pretending."

Scope the article

[Ed: Deja vu? The study was actually done last summer, but the UK paper The Times posted it back up on their wesbite, and since MNP wasn’t in existence at the original date of publication, we figured it would be a good idea to point all of our ninjas to the study’s interesting results]
