Consider this: In over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure—the clitoris. It is not required for reproduction. It doesn’t have a urethra running through it like the penis, and thus, does not urinate. Sadly, it is precisely because the clitoris has no function apart from female pleasure that science has neglected to study it as intricately as the penis. Try asking the next person you encounter to tell you where the clitoris is located. The scientific name for the external “little button” or “bulb” is glans. The glans is connected to the body or shaft of the internal clitoris, which is made up of two corpora cavernosa. Sketch of an erect clitoris The corpus cavernosum also extends further, bifurcating again to form the two crura. Near each of the crura on either side of the vaginal opening are the clitoral vestibules. What does all this mean? Interestingly, they’re both right. Sketch of a clitoris at rest Dr.
The Science of Stress, Orgasm and Creativity: How the Brain and the Vagina Conspire in Consciousness“The more closely we analyze what we consider ‘sexy,’” philosopher Alain de Botton argued in his meditation on sex, “the more clearly we will understand that eroticism is the feeling of excitement we experience at finding another human being who shares our values and our sense of the meaning of existence.” But in his attempt to counter the reductionism that frames human sexuality as a mere physiological phenomenon driven solely by our evolutionary biology, de Botton overcompensates by reducing in the opposite direction, negating the complex interplay of brain and biology, psychology and physiology, that propels the human sexual experience. That’s precisely what Naomi Wolf, author of the 1991 cultural classic The Beauty Myth, examines in Vagina: A New Biography (public library) — a fascinating exploration of the science behind the vastly misunderstood mind-body connection between brain and genitalia, consciousness and sexuality, the poetic and the scientific. Wolf writes:
Study Sheds Light On Teen SextingAlan McStravick for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online In the past decade, there has been a lot of light thrown on the topic of sexting. This relatively new word was added in August of last year to the Merriam-Webster´s Collegiate Dictionary and is an obvious fusion of the words ℠sex´ and ℠texting.´ Sexting is a new pandemic brought on by the ubiquity of the Internet and mobile phones in our day-to-day lives. The act of sexting involves the sending of a sexually explicit message and/or photograph via the SMS system used in mobile phones. The first reports on this trend appeared in 2005. Studies have shown that sexting occurs across most age demographics, but most psychologists, educators and parents are predominantly concerned about the increase of this dirty digital deed among tweens, teens and young adults. What the team may not have expected to find in their research was the reflection of the paternalistic society´s sexual mores in this burgeoning technological domain.
The Valley Advocate: Leisure - Clit Chat: 14 Clitoral Factoids to KnowFactoid 1. The clitoris is the only part of the human body that exists solely for pleasure. Other pleasurable spots like the nipples, neck, tongue and penis all have at least one other function. 2. The other three-fourths hide internally, including the clitoral shaft, urethral sponge, vestibular bulbs and the crura (aka the clitoral legs), which are housed inside the outer labia and can be stimulated with external pressure, causing many to moan "a little to the left." 3. While we're developing in Mom's womb, our clitoris is formed from the same erectile tissues that would've been the glans and upper shaft of the penis. So the aroused clitoris is basically an itty-bitty boner. 4. The clitoral head alone contains 8,000 nerve endings—4x as many as exist on the larger head of the penis, making it more sensitive than his entire kit 'n' kaboodle. 5. So why are we so freaking hard to get off sometimes, I ask you? 6. 50-75 percent of women must have clitoral stimulation to orgasm. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
Why do some people hate the taste of broccoli? › Ask an Expert (ABC Science)I have always wondered why things taste bad to some people. For example, I like the taste of broccoli but my wife can't even swallow it. How we taste things depends largely on the number and type of taste receptors we are born with, says flavour scientist and chef, Associate Professor Russell Keast from the Area School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University. These taste receptors are clustered within the taste buds on the tongue and in the upper part of the mouth, and they react specifically to salty, sweet, sour or bitter foods. "Somebody who's got a lot more receptors for specific chemicals in food will perceive them as being more intense", Keast says. "The bitterness that some people experience when they eat broccoli is related back to one particular receptor and is linked with another chemical that we often use in taste research called N-6-tropyluracil." ^ to top Super-sensitive taste "Texture perception and odour perception play a part.

How to Make Eggshell Calcium (and Why You’d Want to) | Mama NaturalCalcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. While most of our calcium resides in our bones and teeth, it’s also important for muscle contraction, nerve health, enzyme activity and cell formation.

What does clitoral stimulation do to your brain?is the clitoris the target of female circumcision? (ew) Yes, it is. They cut it off so the woman won't have any fun. Notice that male circumcision leaves most of it there. Many forms of female circumcision don't involve cutting off the clitoris. This is precisely the kind of horror I'm talking about. We silly apes were born into these bodies and until quite recently didn't even have the slightest idea how or why they worked and yet, in total ignorance, authorities presumed to tell us how to operate them.
