Don't Use Drugs-Use Expanded Orgasms
Altered States of Consciousness (ASC) During Female Orgasms and Expanded Sexual Response (ESR): Don’t Use Drugs, Use Expanded Orgasms!
Rationale and Introduction: Expanded Sexual Response (ESR) is defined as “being able to attain long lasting and/or prolonged and/or multiple and/or sustained orgasms and/or status orgasmus that lasted longer and more intense than the classical orgasm patterns defined in the literature”. Lately, there were reports that defended the hypothesis that “intense orgasms in females” induced a form of “altered states of consciousness” (ASC).
Methods: Using different survey methods and techniques we investigated the ASC patterns occurring during normal orgasms and ESR. We reviewed the ASC patterns of 47 women compared with normal sexual response and normal single orgasms. The study is still continuing, planned to be completed by 2014; there may be changes in the figures and statistics in the final study.
Results: We have concluded that ASC may occur in normal, single intense orgasms; however the occurrence of ASC was more variable (more than 72 ASC patterns), intense and frequent in ESR. Among these were: depersonalization; out of body experience; flying; dying feeling (petit morte); ecstasy; rapture; explosion feeling; quivering, earthquake feeling; flooding; absorbing; spurting; blessed; shuddering; intense love; unreal; surreal; voyage to nature; seeing light flashes, color flashes, geometric shapes, figures; peacefulness; serenity; physical and spiritual warmth; loss of control; spreading; flowing; mystical experience; cessation of time; intense empathy; unification with the partner and/or the universe; de ja vu; crying and many others which are now being collected through our different surveys.
Conclusion: ESR orgasms and also single intense orgasms may induce a form of ASC in the human female. The mechanism of ESR induced ASCs is still very obscure. Four nerve and six pathway theory, acute dopamine, norepinephrine, endogenous opioid, oxytocin and prolactin release may explain the occurrence of ASCs during ESR, to some extent. Expanded orgasms have an acute and short lasting, hallucinogenic effect, as well as, anxiolytic, anti-depressant, analgesic, myo-relaxant, ecstatic, sedating effects, which may ironically lead to a novel and humorous slogan in 21st Century: “Don’t Use Drugs, Use Expanded Orgasms”!
