We previously brought these features on how women orgasm and the science behind orgasms.

While most people are familiar with the explosive quality of the male orgasm, the female orgasm remains a mystery to many.

Now, Wired has created a video explaining how the female orgasm works with the help of fun science experiments.

Using common household items, the video reveals that the clitoris contains over 8,000 nerve endings, with 70% of women needing direct clitoral stimulation in order to orgasm.

It also demonstrates how the brain releases oxytocin, prolactin and endorphins post-orgasm, resulting in a mellow, relaxed feeling.

Incredibly, a woman’s pain threshold increases 107% after an orgasm, and more bizarrely, orgasms can even occur during childbirth.

Educational and eye-opening, these facts will surely come in handy the next time you indulge in a little frisky playtime with your partner.
