What are anal orgasms?

Orgasm is a complex set of physiological events that are closely related to brain function and it is the climax of the chain of sexual events that a person undertakes. The experience of orgasm is dependent on the individual to a large extent. Till now, exact events in the brain that governs the process are still not clear.

The research on orgasm shows that it can be initiated by various methods. These include stimulation of various body parts, use of imagery, drugs, during epileptic seizures and childbirth. However, in most cases, it is marked by an intense feeling of pleasure that arises from sexual stimulation.

The pleasure obtained from orgasm is a key motivating factor behind sexual activity. It has been noticed that rhythmic stimulation synchronise the various neural networks of the body. This results in the crossing of a certain threshold resulting in the sensation of orgasm.

Anal orgasm can be achieved in both men and women. But the feelings of men and women in describing orgasm are also different from each other. Anal orgasm is one of the major types of orgasm that results from non-genital stimulation. Even though this is quite often a taboo subject to discuss, many modern-day doctors are encouraging couples to try the process.

Anal orgasm relates to the stimulation of the nerves around the anal area which results in the final sensations of pleasure. This can be achieved by manual stimulation or through the use of any mechanical device like a sex toy. In the case of men, anal sex can result in the stimulation of the prostate gland which can result in higher levels of pleasure.

However, anal sex is best tried in a slow and relaxed manner. A lot of understanding between the partners is needed to get it right. In this article, we will look into some more facts about anal sex and the feeling of orgasm associated with it.

A look at the mechanism of orgasm

It is a fact that the feeling of orgasm is not necessary for reproduction. While fertilization of the egg can occur without orgasm, ejaculation in males can also take place without orgasm at times. Some theories about female orgasm also suggest that muscular contractions during orgasm can help in drawing the sperm into the uterus.

In addition, the feeling of relaxation and sleepiness that is an aftereffect of orgasm can help in promoting effective sperm retention in the female reproductive tract. As per the present research, orgasm involves the following stages.

  • A prime stage is called the somatic stage. Here, the peak levels of the oxytocin hormone contribute to the relaxation of the associated muscles. It also lowers blood pressure and causes a reduction in the rate of breathing. On the whole, this leads to the feeling of physical relaxation.
  • The next step is related to the emotional effects. Oxytocin also brings about a sense of contentment. This is further enhanced by emotional feelings of satisfaction if the overall experience has been extremely rewarding.
  • At the endocrine level, the oxytocin released at orgasm increases oestrogen and androgen receptors in the genital organs and the muscles of the pelvic floor. This creates an endocrine basis for further enhancement of the overall physical response.
  • Lastly, the oxytocin enhances the psychological bonding of the couple. This happens through the powerful reward system of orgasm that is specifically activated by sexual intercourse.

It should be noted that anal orgasm is not connected with fertilization. Its sole purpose is to gain sexual pleasure and make the sex life of a couple more interesting. The various aspects of anal orgasm can be related to the above-mentioned stages even though the emotional effects may different.

What causes anal orgasms?

Actually, the female clitoris is shaped like a wishbone. For some women, it extends down to the anus and connects with the pudendal nerve. So during anal penetration, the clitoral ends get stimulated. In addition, an anal orgasm can also happen in women as the G-spot gets stimulated through the thin wall between the vagina and the rectum.

Also, there is a tissue that is located in the deep inside the vagina near the cervix. When this gets stimulated through the separating wall, intense orgasms can happen.

In the case of men, the nerves that go into the penis and the scrotum also passes into the anus. The prostate gland is also located inside the body between the anus and the testicles. The stimulation of the prostate through the anal passage results in the secretion of a fluid that passes out with semen.

These sensations generated by the prostate can result in the feelings of an anal orgasm. It is to be noted that the sensations of orgasm are subjective and vary from one person to the other.
