WHAT DOES ORGASM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Orgasm

Orgasm is the sudden discharge of accumulated sexual tension during the sexual response cycle, resulting in rhythmic muscular contractions in the pelvic region characterized by sexual pleasure. Experienced by males and females, orgasms are controlled by the involuntary or autonomic nervous system. They are often associated with other involuntary actions, including muscular spasms in multiple areas of the body, a general euphoric sensation and, frequently, body movements and vocalizations are expressed. The period after orgasm is often a relaxing experience, attributed to the release of the neurohormones oxytocin and prolactin, as well as endorphins. Human orgasms usually result from physical sexual stimulation of the penis in males, and the clitoris in females. Sexual stimulation can be by self-practice or with a sex partner. The health effects surrounding the human orgasm are diverse.
