5 Surprising Things That Can Happen To Your Body When You’re Horny

Some of these are kinda scary.

1. You feel a little numb.

Or, in some cases, paralyzed. But don’t worry, what you’re actually experiencing is hypersensitivity. Dr. Maureen Wheliman asserts, “Tingling in a region of the body is a nerve-related sensation. As the nerve endings are being stimulated during sexual arousal, one might feel a tingling sensation.” The only time you need to worry is when the tingly sensation turns into pain.

2. You sneeze.

Yup! This can happen. Most of the time, it only happens after you orgasm, and this is because the parasympathetic nervous system is activated during sex and sneezing. Weird combo, right?

3. You blink more.

Both emotional and physical excitement can make you blink faster. That’s because our eyes are really sensitive; in fact, they can respond to “one and a half million simultaneous messages.” According to sexologist Tracey Cox, we blink more when we’re turned on because when we’re overwhelmed with emotion, our eyes are trying to keep us from crying.

4. You aren’t easily disgusted.

This weird study confirms that women can tolerate gross AF things like poop and vomit more when we’re horny. (Uh, yay? We’re not sure if this is an accomplishment.) The women were asked to watch a pornographic clip, and then rate the level of disgust of things like dead people. Maybe that’s why some of us aren’t automatically turned off by fuccbois; evolution has trained us to tolerate their bullshit.

5. You’re also a bit braver.

That same twisted study also made women look at scary images after watching a porn clip, and found that they were less afraid… or, at least, less uncomfortable.
