Wired has outlined important information in a newly posted clip: rapid-fire facts about the female orgasm.
The video references a lot of work done by two researchers the Daily Dot has interviewed for another story on nongenital orgasms. So, we asked them to check facts.
Debby Herbenick, an associate professor at the University of Indiana, Bloomington, said that most of the clip’s figures on exercised-induced orgasms were correct. The author of The Coregasm Workout said that virtually any exercise that engages the core (think climbing, pull-ups, chin-ups, running) can lead to an exercise-induced orgasm.
“The WIRED video is mostly pretty good actually (though the 94% anal figure and the 8000 nerve endings could probably use a little challenging),” she added in an email.
The video also suggested that women may be unable to achieve vaginal orgasms alone. While it can be difficult for many women to have a purely vaginal orgasm (and the advice to work with the clitoris at the same time is sound), there are women who can orgasm from vaginal stimulation alone.
But let’s remember the thrust of the argument: Orgasms are fun and can happen all kinds of ways. “Now go put your knowledge to use, alone or with a friend [implied winking emoji].”
