 Orgasmic Ability Predicted by Woman's Walking Style

A new study says that trained sexologists can know the history of a woman's vaginal orgasm just by observing the way she walks.

The study, led by Stuart Brody of the University of the West of Scotland in collaboration with colleagues in Belgium was carried out on 16 female Belgian university students.

The participants completed a questionnaire on their sexual behaviour and were then videotaped from a distance while walking in a public place.

The videotapes were then rated by two professors of sexology and two research assistants trained in the functional-sexological approach to sexology, who were had no idea about the women's orgasmic history.

It was found that the appropriately trained sexologists could correctly infer vaginal orgasm through watching the way the women walked over 80 percent of the time.

Also, on further analysis, it was discovered that the sum of stride length and vertebral rotation was greater for the vaginally orgasmic women.

"This could reflect the free, unblocked energetic flow from the legs through the pelvis to the spine," noted the authors.

Out of many plausible explanations for the results, once could be that a woman's anatomical features may predispose her to greater or lesser tendency to experience vaginal orgasm.

"Blocked pelvic muscles, which might be associated with psychosexual impairments, could both impair vaginal orgasmic response and gait," said Brody,

Besides, vaginally orgasmic women may feel more confident about their sexuality, which might be reflected in their gait.

"Such confidence might also be related to the relationship(s) that a woman has had, given the finding that specifically penile-vaginal orgasm is associated with indices of better relationship quality," stated the authors.

This study has linked vaginal orgasm to better mental health. The study provides some support for assumptions of a link between muscle blocks and sexual function, according to the authors.

The authors concluded that it might support the idea of incorporating training in movement, breathing and muscle patterns into the treatment of sexual dysfunction.

The study is published in the latest issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, the official journal of the International Society for Sexual Medicine and the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health.
