When talking about sex organs, the brain isn’t what comes to mind, but when we think about it, especially for us girls, the entire sexual experience begins and ends in the brain. If we’re too tired from being up all night with the kids, too exhausted from meeting short deadlines, worried about health concerns, trying to fight off nagging symptoms, or just simply have too much on our mind, even if we had Tom Hardy on his knees begging for it, in all likelihood we’d just say, “Not tonight, honey. I’ve got a headache”. When it comes to women who are not in committed relationships, who change partners more often and date a cowboy in March only to move on with a hot banker come summer time, their arousal may come quicker because they have butterflies in their stomach that shoo away all the worries of everyday life more efficiently. Today, we take a look at the role our brains play in the bedroom to understand where the “headache” phrase really comes from and what it actually means.
The Role of the Brain
For most women out there, the brain is the most important sex organ for several reasons. The brain is the center of all of our emotions and thoughts. How we feel about ourselves, physically and mentally, our partners, our relationship, and our life in general are all things that affect sexual desire. Unlike men, who get aroused just thinking about sex, the female arousal is much more complicated.
When we put aside our 8+-hour work days, kids, cooking and cleaning, and financial and health troubles that kill our libido, we can take a step back and take a look at the physical role played by the brain. The brain is the center of all activity, in this case particularly neurotransmitters and nerves that send and receive signals responsible, among other things, for sexual desire. For instance, it is the brain that transmits a signal that leads to a host of reactions that result in genital arousal.
The Role of Distraction
For most women out there, sexual arousal is a series of mind-body reactions, which is why “getting in the mood” when distracted is so difficult. Also, this is why it’s hard for women to feel sexually attracted to their partners if they are fighting or if she doesn’t feel loved and appreciated. In other words, the brain is the most important sex organ, and it needs to be nurtured properly so that the libido doesn’t disappear. At the same time, this explains why most women aren’t into one-night stands and prefer committed relationships because unless a woman is feeling special, she is not attracted to a man, and it’s kind of tricky to make someone feel special over the course of two or three hours. Finally, so many couples look forward to their vacations like they’re working 24/7, but in reality their daily activities drain them out to the point where they have to take time off and travel to a new place to distance themselves and relax enough to feel sexual arousal and have sex.
