Sex Shame vs Orgasmic Trances

Holy Hormones Journal: This article, shared by my friend and colleague Catherine in the UK – just sings to my social/political nature about the sexual shaming of women – and then to my emerging love with science, as the authors discuss  The Neuroscience of Orgasm.

juliacover-x600-1396890093The sexual shaming of women is centuries-old. Has damaged millions of women in the form of abuse, gendercide, infanticide, eldercide, sex trafficking, date rape, scorn, dismissal,  while blatantly exposing and advertising women’s bodies in the media.  Their was some feminist fury over the talented comedian Julia Louis-Dreyfus posing naked on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. (Not to mention she has the Declaration of Independence tattooed/air brushed on her back with John Hancock’s famous signature – only to be pointed out by historians that Hancock signed the Constitution – and not the Declaration. Oops.)

I believe all of this shaming, blaming, and the vilifying of women stems from a fear of the deeply sacred beings we truly are. The authors point this out as they discuss the neurology of orgasm and how this ‘profound natural trance’ elevates women to a sacred place.  Imagine how those hormones would light up and sing in a state of ecstasy! Every cell in our body would vibrate with pleasure.

Yet, look at how many women today are no longer experiencing orgasm or even have a libido.  It is very hard to attain that state or even have a desire when one’s body is used as an object and a vessel. Not to mention being respected.

We live in a world that sells through sex and then shames us for it. Women are taught at a young age not to be sexual, and men are taught that women don’t want sex as bad as they do. We are taught that if a man wants to have sex, he needs to work for it, fight for it, or even kill for it. Women are taught not to be sexual, but at the same time, we place absurd standards on ourselves about how sexy we need to look.

This is what Sex Shame does to people! We need sex like we need food, water or sleep. It’s in our DNA to ensure reproduction! What will our world look like when everyone is comfortable with their sexuality? What will our world look like when everyone has confidence in the way they look, the words they speak and the beliefs they stand for?

The Neuroscience of the Orgasm

FMRI scans of a woman’s brain in orgasm show that over 80 areas of her brain light up, and PET scans show that key areas shut tantric sexdown. What this shows us is that orgasm is the most profound state of natural trance available without the use of drugs or plant medicine. The state of orgasm is an extremely powerful creative force and it’s the highest vibration that we can reach. Humans can manifest through the vibration of orgasm, and for a woman, clearing everything in the way of a full orgasm also clears anything in the way of a woman stepping fully into her true self, and rising to live her purpose.

Orgasm is 90% in the head, and with all the misinformation society teaches us that leaves us anxious in the bedroom, it’s easy to see why there are so many women who are not easily and regularly having satisfying orgasms. The majority of the work that needs to be done to allow a woman to release this way is creating a safe container where she can let go enough to be able to trust you and trust herself to allow her orgasm to come with ease. The female brain during orgasm completely shuts down areas that deal with self-reflection, fear and anxiety, and anything else that isn’t complete ecstasy. The human brain obsesses about what we think of ourselves, what other people think about us, and what we have to do later in the day. Judgment and vigilance centers of the brain keep us alert for survival. These centers need to be relaxed in order for her to orgasm and be 100% focused on her pleasure. When these centers are shut down, it’s like hacking a computer program, and reality as we know it can be completely re-wired and re-invented.
