The Big O

And I don't mean Outrageous!!!!!

Orgasm is the sudden discharge of accumulated sexual tension resulting in rhythmic muscular contractions in the pelvic region that produce intensely pleasurable sensations followed by rapid relaxation. Orgasm is also in part a psychological experience of pleasure and abandon, when the mind is focused solely on the personal experience. It is sometimes called climaxing or coming.

In Masters and Johnson's original research of the human sexual response cycle, orgasm is the third of four stages, occurring after the plateau phase and before the resolution phase. Another widely accepted model of the sexual response cycle, developed by Helen Singer Kaplan, M.D., PhD., involves just three stages: desire, excitement and orgasm.

Orgasms vary from person to person and for each individual at different times. Sometimes orgasm is an explosive, amazing rush of sensations, while others are milder, subtler, and less intense. The differences in intensity of orgasms can be attributed to physical factors, such as fatigue and length of time since last orgasm, as well as to a wide range of psychosocial factors, including mood, relation to partner, activity, expectations, and feelings about the experience.

Orgasm — A Total Body Response
There are several physiological components of orgasm. First, orgasm is a total body response, not just a pelvic event. Brain wave patterns have shown distinct changes during orgasm, and muscles in many different areas of the body contract during this phase of sexual response. Some people experience the involuntary contraction of facial muscles resulting in what looks like a grimace or an expression of discomfort or displeasure, but it is actually an indication of high sexual arousal.

The most characteristic physical feature of orgasm is the sensation produced by the simultaneous rhythmic contractions of the pubococcygeus muscle (pc muscle). Along with contractions of the anal sphincter, rectum and perineum, the uterus and outer third of the vagina (the orgasmic platform) for women, and the ejaculatory ducts and muscles around the penis for men, this constitutes the reflex of orgasm.

The first few contractions are intense and close together, occurring at about 0.8-second intervals. As orgasm continues, the contractions diminish in intensity and duration and occur at less frequent intervals.

Okay, so this is pretty clinical, right? It does give you all the right terminology but what about!...Romance!

Here's a scene from Where Danger Hides where Noah shows Taylor just how he can drive her to that Big O.

Find it at Ellora's Cave and at all virtual bookstores.

His pinned her with his gaze as he began the slow dance, in and out, back and forth, a slow, steady rhythm, the scrape of his cock against the walls of her cunt so erotic she thought she’d come just from that sensation alone. She locked her ankles behind his neck to balance herself and then she couldn’t think at all. His shaft stroked her in and out, the soft slap of his balls against her ass a counterpoint.

On and on he went, never varying the rhythm. In and out. Back and forth. She felt the sweat on his body under the skin of her calves and felt the strain of the muscles in his arms holding himself in place.

“Take your nipples,” he gasped. “Pinch your nipples for me.”

Obediently, wanting him to take her over the edge, she began to rub her nipples and pinch them. The sensation was so intense she began to rub more, pinch harder.

“Tell me, Taylor. Let me hear you say it.”

Say what? What did he want? His voice was barely audible to her. She couldn’t hear, couldn’t think, just feel that huge cock driving into her, pushing her higher and higher, until she could only concentrate on the need deep in her cunt.

“Tell me to fuck you,” he ground out between clenched teeth.

Yes. Anything. Just do it. “Fuck me,” she yelled.

“Now, Taylor. Come now.”

He pushed hard one last time and as he began his release she felt herself coming around him. The orgasm took her with such force she didn’t think she’d survive. She throbbed and convulsed and impaled herself on him, demanding with her body that he not move away from her.

As the last shudder died away and he gently lowered her legs to the bed, she felt herself sink into a sleep deeper than anything she’d ever known.

Freud said, to paraphrase, all life is in the service of tension release.
How true!

I've never researched the definition of an orgasm. That was interesting and so was that excerpt (I'll have to research that further).
