Finally, the volcano it is identified as a range of emotions: first, a low pelvic floor tension that culminates, later, in the explosion of tension and release during orgasm.
How was the study done?
To arrive at this rating, the researchers analyzed 54 women who used a Bluetooth-connected vibrator. The aim of the study, which was published in Journal of Sexual Medicinewas to understand whether the device was able to reliably detect women’s orgasm patterns.
The volunteers were instructed to stimulate themselves with the help of the vibrator until reaching orgasm and to turn off the device two minutes after the climax. In this way, it was possible to determine when the climax occurred and the types of contractions that the pelvic floor suffered.
According to the study, 26 women had wave orgasms; 17 avalanche and 11 volcano. With this classification, the researchers’ next goal is to understand how each of these patterns affects women’s long-term lives.
