Seven Things That Happen To Your Body During Sex |The Republican News


Sex is one experience that never leaves you the same any time you indulge in it.

The racing heart, the urge to nap immediately, the calmness… Experts say the feelings that trail sexual desires and the actual act of sex itself to the point of orgasm and beyond are full of physiological reactions from head to toes

Clinical associate professor of obstetrics and gynaecology, Dr. Lauren Streicher, notes that there are so many organs and systems involved in sexual function, and an individual needs every single one to be in working order for sex to go well, because sex is not just all about hormones.

To be sure, therefore, here’s how sex affects your body, head to toes!

• Brain chemicals and hormones get busy: Streicher say that libido starts in the brain—what we might call ‘being in the mood.’ Loosely speaking, this is a balance of the sex hormones that facilitates the desires. For women, the excitement phase is above the shoulders, while it is below the waist for men, says obstetrician, Dr. Sherry Ross. That is why racing thoughts, depression, stress, or even just thinking about your to-do list can kill the mood in a jiffy. During and after sex, endorphin surges, leading to feelings of euphoria and deep relaxation, which leads to feelings of lovingness, lower blood pressure, and less stress.

• Your heart flutters: You’re excited, you’re physically active, and you need blood to get to the areas of main attraction, so your heartbeat picks up to pump blood around the body, with a specific focus on the genitals. Your breathing rate will increase too, to help your heart maintain this quickened pace, Ross says. This way, sex is almost like a workout, but with much more fun.

• Blood vessels dilate: As your heart rate picks up, your blood vessels dilate or expand, which allows more blood to flow to sex organs and other erogenous zones. “More blood flow to the genitals is why a guy gets an erection and a woman starts to lubricate,” Streicher explains.

• Skin flushes: Dilated blood vessels also mean more blood gets to the skin, too. That’s what’s behind any flushing, blushing, or warmth to the skin

• Muscles contract: Especially muscles in the pelvic floor, abdomen and the legs. They all contract in preparation for climax. This makes the body to tense up before the relaxation of an orgasm, Ross says.

• The vagina lubricates: Blood flow to the genitals stimulates and lubricates the vagina, while it also leads to the swelling of the labia and clitoris in women.

• Breasts swell: Again, blood flow to the breasts can actually make them temporarily larger and more sensitive. Nipples may also become erect.   (

Four Hot Ways To Make Your Partner Orgasm During Sex |The Republican News


Compared to women, it is believed that men are able to achieve orgasm during sex as quickly as they get aroused if they are in good health.

Sexologists however note that sometimes, it doesn’t matter how hard a man thrusts during sex or how long he stays on it, a woman’s pleasure is not an exact science.

A doctor of human sexuality, Emily Morse, says instead of focusing on his own pleasure, a man should show how much he yearns for his woman, noting it could be the key to the elusive female orgasm.

“Sex alone is not enough to make her feel desired. If you seem in a hurry to get off — or to get her off — that will only slow things down,” Morse warns.

So, to make your sex partner achieve unforgettable orgasm, follow these hot hot tips…

Build up her passion

  • Send your girl texts mentioning the parts of your last encounter that most turned you on. “This will jumpstart her sense of anticipation and excitement for the next time you’re together,” Morse says.
  • “When you let her know how much you want her — and what you plan to do to her — she will be easily aroused.
  • “And that will make your job a lot easier when the real fun begins,” Morse says.

Heat her up with foreplay

  • For guys, foreplay is just a prelude — a fun teaser they have to get through before the main event. Not so for women, Morse says. Kissing, touching, caressing, oral and manual stimulation will help her reach climax quickly once you’re inside of her, she says.
  • If you have the time, Morse recommends at least 20 minutes of foreplay before you move on to sex. But if you want to speed things up, mix in some dirty talk.
  • “For many women, words are aphrodisiacs — especially when those words are full of affirmations that fill her need to feel sexy,” she says.
  • Her advice: “Paint a verbal picture of all the things you want to do to her while whispering in her ear. Your warm breath on her ear will send chills down her spine.”

Use your fingers!

  • Your partner probably requires some extra clitoral stimulation in order to climax.
  • Use your fingers to gently stimulate her clitoris, and encourage her to touch herself as well, Morse suggests.
  • Positions like the clitoral alignment technique (a.k.a. “The Cat”) or any configuration where she’s on top can also help ensure the angle of your thrusts is providing plenty of stimulation to her most sensitive areas, Morse adds.

Grab a sex toy

  • Vibrating penis rings and wand-like devices can help you stimulate her erogenous zones with minimal effort—speeding her toward orgasm.
  • “Vibrators are fun and easy to use, whether during foreplay or the main course,” Morse says.               (

Whatever Your Penis Size, There Is Appropriate Sex Position For You



For men who desire their women enjoy sex as much as they do, the positions they take during sex matter a lot.

However, sex doctors are saying that even the best of positions depend very much on the size of your manhood! So, the fact that you have a monstrous size down there does not necessarily mean that you will be able to deliver the best sex possible.

Again, the fact that you have a small size does not mean that you can’t send a woman to the moon and back with wall-crumbling orgasm.

And even if your penis is bent or curved when erect, there’s a way out. But you need to know your onion, sex-wise!

So, what sex position suits your penis size and type? Find out, as instructed by sex expert, Emily Morse of!

The average-sized man: If you are average-sized, then you have the opportunity to experiment with any sex position. The game is all yours! You can be the crouching dragon here! What that means is that you can wrap her arms around your shoulders and her legs around your midsection before you crouch down in a squat so that your body makes a human chair for you. Press her body closely up against yours as you fire on!

The big one: You need extensive foreplay to get your woman turned on and well lubricated. Spend about 10 or 15 minutes in foreplay to help the vagina expand. You can also use lubricant such as Vaseline jelly. Let her stay on top, so that she can accommodate you effortlessly as she can control how deep you go. Have her lean over your body with her hands on either side of your head, as if you’re about to do a push up. You can also bend your knees so you can lean back for support.

Less than six-inch size. Let’s be clear here: As a small size, you can’t use lubrication. What you need is friction. Therefore, enter from the rear, doggy style, says a sex researcher at Indiana University, Dr. Debby Herbenick. This offers you deeper penetration, while also taking your woman’s mind away from your short length! Rest her head and shoulders on a pillow, lift her butt up, then have her squeeze her thighs. The tighter her legs, the snugger the fit.

Curved arrow: If you have a slight sideways shape, stand next to the mattress while she lies on it, says Morse. Alternate angling her to one side, then the other, almost curled in a ball. You can use your shoulders for support while you thrust and find which of the positions feels best for her, depending on which direction your penis bends.

The bottom line: Adopt what’s best for the two of you!     (
