Woman Turned On-compressed

Women are complicated. The way in which we become aroused is complicated. The annoying thing is that more studies have been conducted about a man’s arousal than a woman’s. Typical. So we don’t know everything about what it’s like for a woman to get turned on yet. Because for many years studies spoke in general terms about arousal, lumping women in the same category as men. But the truth is that women’s bodies and brains react differently to men’s brains when they’re getting hot and heavy.

We do know some stuff though, thankfully, and the gap in the research is supposedly becoming narrower. There are lots of physiological effects when a woman gets turned on. You know the deal. You get a rush of excitement and this shows up in different ways around your body. You get erections too you know, it’s just a lot less obvious than when men get them. There are other strange happenings in our bodies when we get turned on that you might not have realized happen. For example, your uterus lifts up in order to lengthen the vaginal canal. Yep, that’s right, your womb moves out of the way to let somebody in.

That’s just the crazy stuff that’s happening in your body. There’s just as much activity going on in your brain too. Hormones are released that make you feel a certain way. And sometimes you may be turned on mentally but this doesn’t show itself in the rest of your body and vice versa. As I said, women are complicated.

14. You Blink Lots

There are a couple of reasons why you might be fluttering those lashes more when you’re getting geared up for some saucy time. Firstly, people blink more when they’re nervous. So if you’re sleeping with someone new for the first time you might be a bit anxious which in turn will make you blink more. The other reason is very much to do with you getting turned on. You also might blink more because it’s the way in which your eyes stay moist. Your eyes need to stay moist when you’re getting aroused because you need to have a clear vision.

13. You Feel Like You Need To Pee

If somebody is stimulating your area down there you might feel like you need to go to the toilet because the areas that are being stimulated are near your urethra. If someone is hitting the G-spot then you might especially feel like you need to pee. Plus, there’s a function in your vajajay that occurs to stop you from peeing as you are getting turned on. The urethral sponge, under the vulva, swells to prevent you from going to the toilet but the sensation this gives off might tell your brain that you do in fact need to go to the loo. So it seems that sex can be confusing for all sorts of reasons.

12. Your Uterus Rises

As you get hot under the collar your body readies itself for penetrative sex. One of the many physiological changes that occur is that the uterus lifts up, thus lengthening the vaginal canal. This obviously means that there’s now enough space to stick something inside of there. This is one of the reasons why it’s important to play around before you get to the main event. According to sexologist Dr. Kat Van Kirk, sex will be more uncomfortable if the uterus hasn’t yet lifted itself up inside your body.

11. You Get Wet

This is another physiological effect that needs to happen to avoid uncomfortable or painful sex. A woman needs to be all lubed up for smooth penetration. This happens as you get turned on. Blood rushes to the walls of your vagina, so much so that it causes fluid to pass through. The rush of blood is also what makes you all flushed in the cheeks and maybe on your chest and neck areas.

10. You Get A Lady Wood

Obviously, a man stands to attention when he is aroused. In a way, women do too, but the signs might be less obvious. As you get aroused your vagina becomes twice as big. The area might even become firm because of all the blood rushing to it. Your nipples and clitoris become erect. Even your boobs swell up and appear bigger. So your body changes a lot more when you’re getting turned on than you may have previously thought or noticed.

9. Your Pain Threshold Is Higher

Another way in which your body responds to you becoming aroused is that you become more tolerant of pain. According to various studies, as you get aroused your pain threshold is heightened and becomes even higher as you get towards the big O. It’s no surprise then that sex is recommended as a natural painkiller for migraines or period pain. There have even been reports of people hurting themselves during sex without realizing until after the deed was done.
