Through imagination, women experience an explosion of brain activity, resulting in more powerful orgasms. Discover which are the most used fantasies and how much they contribute to your sexual life.
Imagination is a powerful weapon. So much so that it even has more power over our sex lives than our own partners. How? This was verified by two studies: the first, from Rutgers University in New Jersey, where they observed what happens to the female brain when a woman masturbates helped by her fantasies. The second, meanwhile, from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, examined how being sexually stimulated by her partner affects a woman.
The result was revealing: the first women experienced an explosion of activity in about 30 areas of the brain, including the orbitofrontal cortex, where sexual fantasies occur, while the second, stimulated by their partners, showed that this cortex was leaving ” turning off” as they neared the climax, reported Cosmohispano.com.
The benefits of using your imagination
These results make it clear that the more brain activity occurs, the more intense the orgasm is, so fantasies would be essential when it comes to achieving more powerful explosions of pleasure.
But how to enhance them? What are the most common and easiest to replicate? The first thing is not to feel guilty for letting your imagination run wild. “Fantasies tend to occur in people with the healthiest sexual lives” , indicates a study carried out by Dr. Harold Leitenberg of the University of Vermont and replicated by the Hispanic website of Cosmopolitan, so the first step is to free yourself from complexes.“Indulging in these types of thoughts is not only a good way to get excited those times when mere contact is not enough, but also an excellent way to prepare ourselves for sex, enhance desire and pleasure, and thus increase the intensity of our orgasms” , explains Julia Hernández, psychologist and therapist from the same online site.
The second thing is to define if the fantasies will remain only in your head, and will intensify your orgasm, or if you will share them with your partner. “During the act, these thoughts can stay in your mind or be shared with him,” says Hernández, adding that, if told, you can “confess what excites you so much about an experience you had or things you would like him to do to you and that they have never experimented together” , such as daring to incorporate sex toys into their preview.
