The problem of anorgasmia for modern people is becoming more relevant, which was confirmed by a new work by researchers from the Kinsey Institute in the United States. The downward trend in the demand for sexual relations, which has been observed by scientists in recent years, is enhanced by the factor that people lose the ability to experience orgasm, experts say.
"Orgasm during sex is not achieved, without being frigid, up to 20-30% of women and up to 5% of men," - said the authors of the project. They concluded that there are a number of reasons why modern people cannot experience orgasm.
One such reason, according to the researchers, is the use of condoms. “Up to 52% of men admit that they cannot achieve an erection because of the use of condoms,” they said.
In addition, one of the most powerful blows to sexuality in modern people is stress. Under stress, the body's production of hormones changes, which affects the ability to reach orgasm, the clinicians explained. "Stress hinders its achievement, as it provokes a decrease in the production of estrogen and testosterone in the human body against the background of an increase in cortisol, due to which the blood supply to the pelvic organs deteriorates and sensuality and libido decrease," they said.
Scientists also associate an increase in the incidence of depression in the modern world with the problem of lack of orgasms. Although sex is considered a form of therapy for depression, it often gets in the way of getting pleasure from it, researchers say.
The increase in obese people seen today is another aspect that doctors say is affecting sexuality. Dissatisfaction with one's appearance and body is an important factor in preventing orgasm, as it prevents people from completely relaxing during sex, experts say.
Scientists also talked about the fact that unpleasant sexual consequences can be caused by medications, in particular those used to lower blood cholesterol levels. (READ MORE)
