    Women may be able to fool their partners by faking an orgasm but a brain scanner will catch them every time, a conference heard on Monday.

    Researchers at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have used scans to show that different areas of the brain are stimulated during an orgasm but are not activated when a woman fakes it.

    "Women can imitate orgasm quite well," Gert Holstege told a fertility meeting on Monday. "But there is nothing really happening in the brain."

    He and colleagues took brain scans of 13 women and 11 men, aged 19-49 who had volunteered for the study, while they were being sexually stimulated by their partner and during an orgasm and compared them to images of their brains at rest.

    "We wanted to know what the brain was doing during orgasm," Holstege said.

    When women genuinely achieved an orgasm, areas of the brain involved in fear and emotion were deactivated. Those areas stayed alert however when women were faking it.

    The researchers also found that the cortex, which is linked with consciousness, is active during a fake orgasm but not during the real thing.

    "The deactivation of these very important parts of the brain might be the most important thing necessary to have an orgasm," said Holstege.

    "It means that if you are fearful or at a very high level of anxiety, then it is very difficult to have sex because you really have to let yourself go," he added.

    The brain scans for men during orgasm were less conclusive, according to Holstege.

    But they did show that different parts of the male and female brain are activated and deactivated during sexual stimulation.

    The researchers found less deactivation in the males in the areas of the brain linked to emotion and fear when they were sexually stimulated.

    They are now planning further studies to compared the male and female brains during orgasm.

    About 5,300 delegates are attending the four-day meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

    Interesting..........

    But how does this help any of us?
    I don't have a brain scanner at home to interrogate my wife with while she is "climaxing" to see if she is faking it or not.

    Well, I'm just freakin amazed at how spoilt we've become. Was a time when they didn't even try to fake it....and you'd been HAPPY...Estatic, in fact, just to hit it. Now we're not even happy with an academy award winning performance that would rival Meg Warrens deli scene with Billy Crystal. We're not even happy wit Samantha Fox-like groaning....We gotta have fucking evidence....LITERALLY...of a woman's orgasm???

    :rant: :rant: :rant:

    just give me a moist one,

    Personal Messages are great too. :x:

    Chatting like this in a thread is a fast way to get it locked. Just FYI.

    Uh. I see what you are saying.

    But a woman doesn't need a man to orgasm.
    They can get it from a battery operated toy.

    The answer is evident, you just haven't stated what it really is.
    Care to try again?

    I guess the standard response would be "its all about the benjamins"
    but not all women are like that.A lot of women have money now and
    I'm always seeing girls with broke dudes.

    Man, I can't believe that so many guys are that full of themselves that this informations would mean absolutly nothing.

    It's not exactly about the orgasim, but the effects on the brain, that are caused at the same time as orgasm, like the endorphins being released at the same time as ejaculation. It's about understanding biology, not whether the woman is faking or not.

    A lady friend told me women derive a non orgasmic pleasure from sex with or without the orgasm.Several other women concurred.

    Because she doesn't want to make you feel inadequate. Some women don't cum everytime, that doesn't mean they dont enjoy it or want you to stop.
