CHEMICAL REACTION

Feeling stressed? Relieving stress is one of our top reasons to masturbate. If we look at the brain when a human is experiencing sexual pleasure a whole host of incredible chemical reactions take place – imagine a firework display. THE “FEEL GOOD” CHEMICAL This chemical is released from the reward centre of the brain, the adventure chemical; it allows you to ‘act’ romantically, gives you that initial butterfly feeling of falling in love and can take some people to some crazy lengths when ‘in love’.

ANAL PLAY: THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE

Both sexes have pleasure points within the anal region, which when stimulated can lead to mind-blowing orgasms. The female nerve system, which ultimately produces our pleasure and orgasms, actually links the nerve complex of the clitoris directly to the anal passage. For men it's known that, “prostate stimulation can produce a 'deeper' orgasm, sometimes described by men as more widespread and intense, longer-lasting, and allowing for greater feelings of ecstasy than orgasm elicited by penile stimulation only.” For both sexes another pleasure point is the perineum. Described by Inside Love & Sex “The perineum is richly supplied with pleasure-receptive nerve endings, and is a major hidden hot zone.” Located between the anus and the genitals in both sexes, stimulating this...
