Synesthesia! The Color of Your Orgasm…
Have you ever had a colorful orgasm? Have you ever thought of your semen color? Or which color you’d like it to be? Have you ever heard of synesthesia?
Synesthesia and Orgasm
Orgasm is a series of bio-physiological processes in the body that build up upon sexual arousal and eventually (at least in most and desired cases) lead to orgasm. You feel it, you enjoy it, and you see it as ejaculation. Sexual relations usually involve touching, tasting, hearing, and seeing, and all these coupled with a great deal of emotions and sensations. But did you know that some people actually experience orgasm as a color full happening?
There are people among us that see the world in a different way. They can feel color, see sounds, and taste music – the science world calls it synesthesia.
What is Synesthesia?
People gifted with synesthesia (aka “synesthetes”) do have a different perception from the happenings in the wold and experience the world differently than most of us. Due to a different neurological signaling and pathways, their world experience is interconnected in such a way that they associate seemingly unrelated senses or mental states with other senses or experiences – as mentioned before, they taste music and see sound. The most common form of the condition is grapheme – color synesthesia. In individuals with this condition numbers and/or letters induce the visual perception of specific color patterns.
Synesthesia and Sexual Experience
Truth is that most of us experience a state of trance, even if only for a short period of time, when achieving an orgasm. The sense of satisfaction with the overwhelming physiological and hormonal firework is more or less extensive for almost everybody. A group of scientists based in Hannover, Germany, now studied the perception of orgasm in synesthetes. The results yielded that sexual synesthetes “seem to experience a deeper state of sexual trance without, however, enhanced satisfaction during sexual intercourse.”
The main difference between people with synesthesia (synesthetes) and regular people seem rather to be in how synesthetes seem to experience different stages of sexual arousal and eventually orgasm.
Here is what the scientists concluded from their study:
