Researchers Describe A New Hypothesis About Why The Female Orgasm Exists


A pair of scientists have a new hypothesis about why the female orgasm exists: It might have something to do with releasing an egg to be fertilized.

Scientists have puzzled over, and sometimes even questioned the existence of, a phenomenon that appears to have no physical effect on conception. While a male orgasm is crucial to impregnate a female, it is not obvious how a female orgasm affects whether she is impregnated.

In fact, Aristotle and Hippocrates both pointed out the female orgasm appears to be an afterthought, at least when it comes to creating offspring.

The theory would explain the modern reality that women do not experience orgasms as easily or as regularly as men.

  1. “Lloyd thinks the female orgasm serves no evolutionary purpose — that the orgasm is to women what nipples are to men.”
    Oh, good grief! LOL!!!!
    Whether the female orgasm is essential to ovulation –or any other aspect of fertilization is immaterial to me…all I gotta say is…. 😉
    You always got something good up your sleeve G 🙂

    1. Lady G I’m sure the majority of the female population resonates your sentiments on Lloyd’s “theory”. I thought “so is this saying “evolution” sort of yawned and threw in the pleasure principle of mating for females who ultimately bear the burden, responsibility, and pain of making conception a reality?

      The tone of the results tap dance over into misogynism. The debates on this one could get deep (no pun intended) and very intersting.

      1. LOL! My thoughts exactly.
        They have concluded that mother nature, in her infinite wisdom, done hollered: “Let’s give her a little sumthin, sumthin for her troubles.”
        And yes, this debate could get deep 😉
