Going Down? The Health Benefits of Oral Sex for Women

oral-sex-1238553_640Performing oral sex on your wife or girlfriend is a wonderful way to show you care about her and her sexual needs. It is also a way to help her heal her body and mind. There are many benefits a girl is able to take away from a guy eating her out beside just the pleasure factor and feeling closer to her mate. Oral sex is an excellent way to provide the stimulation that is needed to give her that toe curling sheet-clutching release that she needs.

If your partner has trouble sleeping, giving her an orgasm may be the answer. After an orgasm your body produces oxytocin. Oxytocin is also known as the cuddle hormone. Recent studies have shown that oxytocin, while not directly linked to causing a person to become sleepy, has a great effect on how fast a person is able to fall asleep, how long they will sleep, and the quality of sleep they receive.

It seems a bit strange, but an orgasm can help to relieve a person of the hiccups. Long lasting hiccups, hiccups that can last up to 48 hours, are most commonly associated with an irritation of the vagus nerves. These are the nerves that serve the diaphragm. When a person has an orgasm, the vagus nerve is super stimulated. This stimulation may be enough to relieve the irritation on the nerve and stop the hiccups.

One of the oldest cliches associated with sex is the not-tonight-I-have-a-headache excuse. Good news! Orgasms actually help relieve or at least reduce the effects of a headache. The study was published in the International Headache Society’s journal, Cephalalgia, in 2013.

Orgasms can help women with cramps and the symptoms of PMS. Before an orgasm, a woman’s uterus is relaxed. When she reaches climax, all of the uterus muscles contract and the area receives increased blood flow. This helps with the physical aspect of menstrual cramps. At the height of the orgasm, the brain releases natural pain killing chemicals and mood enhancers that reduce the overall pain of the cramps and can help reduce the irritable feelings associated with PMS.

During an orgasm, the body releases endorphins into the body. These chemicals are much like morphine in the way they make our body react. They relieve pain and give us a “High” feeling. Kind of like the “High” runners get after an especially high energy run. Dopamine is one of those endorphins. Dopamine is also the main chemical in many prescription anti-depression medications. So, is it really all that far-fetched to believe that these endorphins can help pick you up when you are a little blue? In fact, many studies show that orgasms are good for depression and encourage more sex because of that benefit.

The power of the orgasm to heal the female body is amazing. Almost as amazing as the female body itself. If you have a woman in your life and you want her to be happier and healthier and understand just how much you love her, show her by giving her oral stimulation.
