The Brain In Orgasm

Recently at a conference I was commenting on the scientific differences that have been recorded through PET scans on men/women’s brain during orgasm. While there is still much to study in this area, the overall findings surprise the scientist in that the exact opposite areas of the male/female brain light up during an orgasm.

The major area of a woman’s brain that becomes activated is the cerebellum. One of the most surprising elements was  the overall deactivation in the other regions of the brain like the amygdala which process emotions.

For men there is increased activation in the overall brain including the amygdala, but a deactivation in the cerebellum.

Gert Holstege of the University of Groningen findings are a fascinating initial look into some of the intricate ways that the male/female brain functions during this very intimate and vulnerable act of orgasm.

It continues to remind me that our Creator’s creativity is limitless and literally beyond definition.

About Holy Sexuality

SEXUALITY IS A SUBJECT THAT IS EASILY, AND OFTEN, DISTORTED.

Many outlets bombard us with the physical and chemical realities of passion, and call it sexuality—overlooking any influence our minds and souls may have. Fairytale endings entice us to dream that great sex is sustained by emotional attachment or hearts a-flutter. And some religious communities reduce sex to a mechanical act of procreation, chastely downplaying the physical pleasure that is part of its original design.

RECLAIMING THE TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE.

The truth is, we are more than just bodies spontaneously reacting to physical and emotional urges, and we are more than minds merely choosing to reproduce. We are vibrant beings designed in the wild and wonderful image of a loving creator.

WE ARE CREATED FOR SEX, AND SEX IS CREATED FOR US.

Sexuality is a part of our very being, and it impacts every relationship we have, including our relationship with God. When we acknowledge that sex is not separate or hidden from God—that it is actually a mysterious and sacred gift to us—it can become a more beautiful and authentic part of our lives. And when we invite God into our struggles, our sexuality can become a powerful place of personal transformation.

WHERE SEXUALITY CAN TAKE US.

It’s no secret that sex is both a beautiful and dangerous part of our physical being. It can bring us to the heights of pleasure and to the depths of pain—and, when it is reduced to a mere physical act, it can leave us almost numb, far from the exquisite fulfillment that holy sexuality was designed to provide.

Truessence invites you into a divine partnership between you and your creator, as you venture beyond your limited views of sexuality and into new expanses of possibility. True joy and deep riches await.
