For women, it seems, sex is a big turn-off, reveals a brain scanning study. It shows that many areas of the brain switch off during the female orgasm – including those involved with emotion.
Ha ha! We always knew women have no emotions!
In one sense the findings appear to confirm what is already known, that women cannot enjoy sex unless they are relaxed and free from worries and distractions. “Fear and anxiety levels have to go down for orgasm. Everyone knows this but we can see it happening in the brain,” he explains.
Scientists are puzzled about the extreme deactivation from an evolutionary point of view.
Holstege points to the extraordinary behaviour seen in some animals during the breeding season, such as March hares, when the urge to mate seems to override the usual fear of predators.
In conclusion, you can tell when you’ve turned her on because she’ll be almost completely turned off. We have no idea why it’s so hard for men to understand women.
