The intensity of sexual energy in our lives is immense, a potent force, which governs almost everything in this life. A physical intimacy between two opposite gender can unfold many neurochemistry of the brain, partly be explained with biochemistry and partly with bioenergetics.
Side-effects of Orgasm
Orgasm is the ultimate goal of sex, as it is the ultimate stage where bodies discharge of excess bio-energy, and free the blocked sexual energy that causes mental disturbance. Unfortunately, there are many powerful side-effects of orgasm because of hormonal change during the peak of recreational sex. The whole part of copulation is controlled by three hormones – dopamine (reward hormone), prolactin (hormone of satiation) and oxytocin (the cuddle hormone). Additionally, there are androgen receptors, which directly affect our mood, desire and our perception of our mate.
Another stimulant phenylethylamine (PEA) largely causes the elevation in energy, mood and attention. When one is involved in close intimacy with opposite gender, PEA is produced greatly and gives a euphoric feeling. Conversely, a deficiency causes depressive state of mind. The first stage of sexual bonding two people is principally caused PEA, and hormones like oxytocin and dopamine help to strengthen the bond. When we sexually aroused by a physical intimacy, our dopamine level increases, and at the orgasm we have a dopamine brainstorm. The effects of dopamine in a body, and especially in sexual intimacy are various.
After orgasm, in male dopamine levels fall sharply with usual withdrawal symptoms. In female the process is much delayed. Another hormone prolactin levels raise and androgen receptors that holds the physical bonding between two people fall sharply. Behavioral changes from these hormonal changes can be observed when we are dissatisfied, depressed, and more critical towards our mates.
During the honeymoon period of our relationship, we remain strongly fixed with our mates by high level of oxytocin hormone, which is also called cuddle-hormone, counteracting fear and stress. However, having multiple sex with our mates reduces this hormonal blues. Initially, sex aggravates more sex. A high frequency of copulation actually not good for us, as it leads to sharp fluctuations of dopamine hormone and consequently affect on our emotional state.
