Observant little ...

I don't understand the answer, but I may have some ideas on the question...

In the news

Via Bliss, this story on the sort of study that could probably never happen in Australia.

Apparently the study showed that the "parts of the brain that govern fear and anxiety are switched off when a woman is having an orgasm but remain active if she is faking" - perhaps why great sex is good for headaches and stress?

Anyway, it's the methodology that got me thinking:

For men, the scanner tracked activity at rest, during erection, during manual stimulation by their partner and during ejaculation brought on by the partner's hand.

For women, the scanner measured brain activity at rest, while they faked an orgasm, while their partners stimulated their clitoris and while they experienced orgasm.

All of this, I assume while a bunch of scientists in white lab coats looked on. Can you see this getting past the Aussie ethics committees? And if it did, how would they advertise for volunteers?

WANTED: couples to participate in study on the effect of orgasms on the brain. Must be prepared to manually stimulate your partner in scientific surroundings. Women must be able to achieve genuine orgasm and realistically fake orgasm. Men must know where the clitoris is.

*sigh* Or maybe I just read too many women's magazines. ;o)
