NCBI ROFL: A woman's history of vaginal orgasm is discernible from her walk.

By ncbi rofl | September 1, 2009 3:00 pm

“AIM: The objective was to determine if appropriately trained sexologists could infer women’s history of vaginal orgasm from observing only their gait. METHODS: Women with known histories of either vaginal orgasm or vaginal anorgasmia were videotaped walking on the street, and their orgasmic status was judged by sexologists blind to their history… …RESULTS: In the sample of healthy young Belgian women (half of whom were vaginally orgasmic), history of vaginal orgasm (triggered solely by penile-vaginal intercourse) was diagnosable at far better than chance level (81.25% correct, Fisher’s Exact Test P < 0.05) by appropriately trained sexologists… …CONCLUSIONS: The discerning observer may infer women's experience of vaginal orgasm from a gait that comprises fluidity, energy, sensuality, freedom, and absence of both flaccid and locked muscles."

    Women can't fake it anymore. 😉

    the absence of flaccid muscles worries me…. :-{

  • Ms Avery

    Sensuality and freedom are totally scientifically quantifiable traits.

    I intended to copy & paste my comments from the BC forum thread into this comment box. GAWD! I hate Blogger. It would not allow me to copy paste. Arrrggghhh!

    This is not about experiencing orgasms while walking. A significant number of women do NOT experience vaginal orgasms, as opposed to cliroral orgasms, during coitus. This is an assessemnt tool used to determine whether or not women are experiencing vaginal orgasms during coitus. Hopefully, they can undertake the correct exrecise programs and postures and gaits to increase their vertebral rotation, hip rotation and lenghth of stride.

    What? Yeah, we understood the abstract.

    Now we need something to help find the men who can last long enough the multiple ladies satisfied.

    I would say absence of flaccid muscles and sensuality is a pretty damn good start. 😉

    Yeah, but which is cause and which is effect? Do women walk that way because they get more vaginal orgasms, or do they get more vaginal orgasms because of musculo-skeletal factors that make them walk that way?

  • Crazy Tom

    This blog officially has enough awesome that I will be happy to add it to my bookmarks.

    JMW, it’s a cycle. They get more (___) because they walk that way, but then they walk that way because they have more (orgasms).

    Great, now I’ve got Aerosmith stuck in me head.

    Does “vaginal orgasm” mean something different from a regular, garden-variety female orgasm?

  • Bigboy

    When I worked at a hotdog stand in high school,
    we had a theory about women who liked extra onions on their dog. We theorized that those ladies who wanted no onions didn’t like putting other things in their mouth, but extra onions- Jackpot!

    A woman with a sexy sway to her step can at least fake a good orgasm, so as long as she leaves, who cares? The best sway is the one as she walks away.

    It’s another case of finding the missing Gspot – there are clitoral orgasms and vaginal orgasms but some say that there are also GSpot orgasms.

    From my own point of view, the best climaxes come from the stimulation and reaction of all three… preferably repeatedly. I suspect I may well walk funny after a couple of those.

    However, joking aside, being a woman who has had more than one caesarean, I am quite sure that the cutting of my abdominal muscles, in conjunction with the effects of an epidural that went awry, have left me with a definite lack of feeling. I am just about to see a physio to try to get back in touch with all the muscles and work out the correct skeletal realignment. If I can succeed with all of this then I suspect my orgasm enjoyment will go through the roof.

    God help the neighbours!

    From this article and my informal observations of gait, I’d guess that a higher percentage of black women have vaginal orgasms than do white women.

  • Cheri

    Does this only apply to Belgian women?

  • conceptualclarity

    The major 1992 US sex survey did indeed show that black and Hispanic women orgasmed during intercourse more than white women (although they reported engaging in less masturbation and oral sex than white women). That was one of 4 or more major surveys internationally in which college-educated women fell below the rest in orgasming during intercourse. Why? Probably more feminism, which provides an emotional block in heterosexual penetration. Also, college-educated read articles taking the aberrant Hite Report as gospel truth that intercourse doesn’t work for many women, while less educated women are just bonking instead of reading about it.
