S8x, when shared with someone you trust and are attracted to, is usually good fun. Right? Yes, there are exceptions, but an orgasm is generally considered a positive experience.
But can an orgasm also be good for your health?
According to recent studies, yes it can. The happiness you experience comes from a release of pleasure chemicals like oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, which have positive side effects for your mind and body. As well as being connected to pleasure and happiness, oxytocin can also promote social attachment, lowering our defences and increasing trust.
